We stayed here for 4 nights, and were very happy with our choice. We stayed in a room facing the port with a balcony, which was worth the extra cost. Our room was simple and clean. I did see into a few other rooms and preferred the one we had, which had all ceramic tile floors, and nicer bedspread ( my opinion). It's a simpler place than we normally stay but it fully served the purpose here.
The ladies at the front desk were nice and able to answer any questions we had. However, you should know that the front desk is not staffed all the time, so if you leave early in the morning, there will be no one there to help if you should need.
We tried the breakfast one morning and didn't like it. I need a good cup of coffee in the morning and the one out of this machine just didn't do it. Also, one of the croissants was not fully baked in the centre, and I prefer baguette to the buns they provide. The next morning we walked to Cosmos for breakfast and for 7.50 we had a small yogurt, good coffee, orange juice, and croissant.
We were able to find parking in front every day with no problems, however, I think this may be a challenge during busier times. The walk to the main hub of water front restaurants is 10 min., or you can drive and park there, but parking cost about 5 euro each time we went for dinner. I'm glad we stayed in a quieter part of town which was good for sleeping.
