stayed three nights -- double superior room was clean and well appointed, with a good bed and sufficient towels. Windows could be opened for fresh air (not always the case!!!), but it was too noisy to leave them open. View overlooking the highway.
Hotel has a mediocre breakfast, more of a large continental with a bit of sausage/eggs/cheese, but you get fed...and don't forget to ask the waitress for a real coffee (the machine is hidden in the back, and if you don't ask...you don't get), and are stuck with the nescafe powder bla.
Hotel is in a seedy area, not recommended to walk back at night, but I walked to town during the day every day in 20 minutes. Taxi back from the port was 10Euros at night. Area has its share of beggars and gas station prostitutes, so best to pay the taxi!
Parking was 14.50 a night, which is a lot...but considering the neighborhood, it's a bargain.... :)
Return? no, I'd choose another and pay a bit more to stay in the port or around the city center (Piazza Ferrari or higher up).
