Ok, first the price is good, business room on fourth floor with an ocean view for 79 euro per night. Best thing about the hotel.
The front desk staff, well let us just say that it would not hurt to serve with a smile, any question seems to be too much to handle. A little service with a smile goes a long way.
The room is dated. The towels are like sandpaper, the plumbing seems to need repair - sink, tub and toilet. The table in the room was on its last legs.
No wifi in the rooms, only in the bar area, and this means literally only in the Bar area. This is a big disadvantage in this the 21 st century.
The bed was as hard as stone. No give whatsoever.
On the plus side, the non smoking nature of the hotel means that you can put the air conditioning on and not suffer. The breakfast is really good and the business centre offered free printing, which was good for boarding ticket printing. And the view was so nice to wake up to.
Overall this hotel needs some tender, loving care to restore it to its once better past.
