The reception staff was friendly, but not really knowledgeable. For example, they did not know that the hotel offered a substitute for their sauna area that was under construction during my stay. I showed them my e-mail about that and it was a news for them. Fair enough, though, they called me back in 2 hours to confirm that I would be able to enjoy spa in another hotel for free. When I asked about the time of the last bus from the city to the hotel, the receptionist told me that it was midnight, although it actually was 23.24 on a weekday. I also asked about the transport to the botanical garden, and they suggested only one bus to me, although there are 3 of them that go there. I guess, the reception is mostly busy with the groups of athletes who come to the hotel for their training. I decided to rely on internet for any further information. The problem there is the fact, that the WiFi is only available in the lobby and the hotel corridors of the hotel are so long that it took me 7 minutes to walk to the lobby from my room.
I liked the view on the bay with its yachts and ships from the breakfast room. The breakfast offer is sumptuous indeed. I also liked the fact that smoking is forbidden anywhere in the hotel, even on the balconies. It is reasonable as my room would stink if somebody smoked on the balcony next doors. I liked the abundance of all sorts of massages and beauty treatments available and the efficiency of the beauty parlour reception staff. I liked that there is a beach nearby. I also liked walking from the city to the hotel along the coast scattered with monuments. It took me about 30 minutes, but I would not like to do it in winter. There is public transport available.
