    The room for 4 persons is very packed. Its bathroom is bigger than the room itself. The shower didn’t function very well; but we’ve managed.

    GOod value for this money. We were 4 persons staying the same room. Just needed one night to spend. And it was quite cozy and quiet. The breakfast was rich and good for what it costs. Didn’t expect such a variety of bread, and food in general.

    This was a special find in the old part of town, quiet location and a very short stroll to all the action. The hotel is beautifully adorned with antiques and the room we had was decorated with great pieces of classic furniture. Bathroom was great with very hot water. Firm bed. Great hosts who were very friendly and provided us with local info on where to eat Tapas in a local place not too touristic. The continental breakfast was amazing with so many choices of fresh meats, salmon, egg, cheese, bread, hot coffee and more. We really enjoyed our short stay at this hotel and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a personal touch hotel away from the husyptke and bustle of the main beach area.

    The hosts are wonderful; pleasant, friendly, and knowledgeable. The property is in a largely residential area and so is very quiet at night, which we really liked. Still, it's convenient to restaurants, food and wine shops, the town waterfront/beach and all amenities. Parking was easy and free. The breakfast was tasty, abundant and varied, served in a bright and spacious dining room.

    It is highly affordable because it's not overlooking the beach, yet it's only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach area. For visitors for the Mediterranean International Cup, it is a gentle 12-15 minute walk to the Palamos stadium.
