This hotel was quite nice, and not just because it had everything one would need packed in quite a small area, but the receptionists and staff were nice. Even though not all of them spoke English, someway or another they were always of some help. Even the chamber maids were nice, and they did an exceptionally good job at keeping our rooms clean.
Even though the rooms were relatively small, they were quite modern and kept in very good conditions ... I cannot not mention the showers - the different functions available are impressive!! The towels were provided and every day or two, the chamber maids would leave us clean towels.
The hotel is located in a very good point just close to the port, but not in the main road. And the price is not that bad either, especially compared with other hotels in the vicinity.
One thing I noticed was that the foyer was always hot, I am used to the Mediterranean climate, but once you enter the hotel, the heat simply grasps a hold of you and never lets you go until you are in the shower. Well, I guess that is a definition of a warm welcome ;)
Also, there is just one elevator, to which you need to climb a set of stairs to arrive to. For us this was not an issue, however, one would need to keep this in mind if they cannot do otherwise but use a lift.
Nonetheless, I will recommend this hotel, since as I have previously stated, it has everything you need.
