    Great location, in the old harbour and very close to the town center. The apartment was located in an old port building with lots of charm at the outside. The apartment was bright and spacious, but could be decorated better. The cheap looking furniture, really did not go well with the whole context.

    nothing special The hotel is next to the old harbor and the street in front of the hotel is not very busy but for the rooms on the ground floor still busy enough to be a bit annoying. There are better rooms to stay in than my room but for one night it was okay.

    Most probably there are smoking rooms in the hotel so there was a slight smell of tobacco in the room. No message/sms designed for the late guests. I arrived late, by calling the number written on the door from the second attempt I could reach a person who advised me a pin code for getting a key. Wifi is stiil upon request so no login provided if you arrive late.

    Clean room, hot water, soft pillow :) - all for the good sleep. Parking opposite the hotel, breakfast good enough for the amount paid for it.

    Clean, comfortable, some rooms accessible by lift, standard room quite small, most of the parking over the road, easy walking distance to lovely town center and very central to visit all the tourist sites, on the waterfront with plenty of food outlets. Helpful young woman on reception spoke English.

    It was pretty dusty and the wifi didn't reach my room since I was on the third floor. And when it reached it was very slow. I complained at the reception but they said they won't do anything until other guests complain which is ridiculous.
