Although our original booking was in Atlantis hotel which apparently is their sister concern and we checked into Historia almost at 0300 in the morning the view from the sea facing room was so promising that we woke up early just to savour it. The sea facing rooms also have a relatively busy railway line running close by,but your sleep would hardly be disturbed thanks to the good sound proofing.
The size of the room although small is sufficient for tourists who intend to be out most of the day. The balcony however is quite spacious with respect to the room size and the views as we already stated makes you feel like you are in a cruise ship.
The location of the hotel is central and close to all the touristic attractions. The breakfast provided is basic but good enough. The housekeeping and cleanliness levels are above average. The staff , particularly the girl who was on the day shift (sorry we forgot her name) was very helpful and always willing to provide assistance on any issue with a smile.
