At 100 Euros per night I am going to evaluate this hotel as if it was a five star as claimed.
The rooms are tired, carpets need replacing and there was no tea or coffee/kettle in the rooms.
The rest was fine; bathrooms and amenities were very spacious and clean.
The attention to detail was lacking with the air conditioning barely coping to get to 22degrees and it wasn't hot outside, the fridge was scarcely cold enough for drinks and the light and tap in the bathroom were broken.
Now the good bits, breakfast was plentiful and of good quality and variety, no hidden extras fro real coffee or freshly cooked eggs. Very good location and easy to find.
Staff were helpful if not overly friendly.
There was no swimming pool and I did not try the spa or fitness centre as it was a little claustrophobic and limited in the equipment.
Would I stay again, yes if I got a better rate
