the Good: Fantastic location! Beach is right out the back, food and shops are within walking distance. Staff is friendly.
the Bad: Ok, there was a mini-fridge and when i say mini i really mean mini. Didn't even know they came that small. There were crumbs underneath it. Why, you ask, was I looking under the fridge? I don't know, something told me to look and behold crumbs- YUCK!! The room as very small and the bathroom as well. The hallway was dingy looking. The elevators were so old I was scared it wouldn't make it to my floor each time i got in. Scary. I can't comment on the parking because we didn't rent a car.
All in all, if you don't mind old, dingy, and small places and you won't be in your hotel much at all then go for it. It was okay for the 3 nights I stayed but I really wanted something better.
