Overall, we enjoyed our stay in the Silken Coliseum. It was unfortunate that our bathroom ceiling in the first room leaked but the staff were incredibly professional in dealing with this, and put our minds at rest, and ourselves into a much nicer suite as a result.
Bathroom issue - Unfortunately whilst we were there the bathroom of our first room was leaking from the ceiling which meant that we had to change rooms. The hotel was fully booked so this didn't happen until the following day however, the staff were incredibly professional about the situation and had someone come up to wipe the bathroom floor as the leak began to stop. Later when we came back that night, they had left a tray of chocolates and fruit on our bed. The next day they transferred all of our belongings (including items which we'd stored in the fridge) to the new room whilst we were out. The new room was in fact a suite which had ample space as the bedroom was both much bigger and we actually had a separate room with a sofa and chairs.
Room 1 - not very spacious i.e. did not have additional room for an extra chair which meant we were always sitting on the bed to do things, however it was clean and the bed was comfortable
Room 2 - like room 1 but just much bigger
Wifi - whilst this was free (and therefore I shouldn't complain too much) it was quite slow
Location - brilliantly placed within the town to be able to walk to the harbour area in 5minutes, loads of restaurants, shops and bars all around. Also, only about 5minutes away from the main bus station, although there were no actual signs and the square where the hotel is isn't marked out on maps very well so on our first day we took a bit longer. Also, there is a supermarket just around the corner which came in handy.
