    Nice staff, but not so clean and comfortable room
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Double or Twin Room
    • Stayed 2 nights

    The cleanliness was so poor. The bed sheet was clean but overall wasn't so much pleasant. The towels were so disgusting and we didn't use them at all. The mattress was so uncomfortable and it was two single mattress that they joint them together to prepare a double bed but that two matres weren't on the same height level.

    The location and the staff.

    Old hotel, with old furniture, but it was more or less clean. Our bathroom was really small and had to wait couple of minutes for hot water.

    The hotel is very close to the beach. Staff is friendly and helpful, 24 hour reception.

    Beds are somewhat old and uncomfortable.

    Staff were very accommodating. Helped us organise moped rental, taxis to/from train stations, held bags for us after check-out and provided towels for the beach. Excellent location, two minute walk from the main strip/beach.

    Shower doors did not close completely. Massive water leakage in our bathroom from the piping. Double bed was literally splitting in the middle of the two mattresses throughout the night.

    Staff was very helpful and polite and service was prompt and easy.

    Room was small & closely, I didn't care mich about size but consider this if the size matters for u :) . Quite old furniture and everything, hardly alive refrigerator

    Good location - close to the promenad, beaches, supermarket and about 12 minutes walk to the station, friendly staff. Towels were changed once in four days, but it seems they can do this by demand.

    The bed was a bit soft for my liking, but not bad.

    Overall the hotel makes a good impression. Very friendly staff and professional service. Clean and bright decor. The location is almost perfect. Turn right outside and the beach is in front of you at the end of the street, just three minutes away

    The bagno (private beach) that was recommended by our hotel, as being a good price for people staying at the hotel was actually more expensive than any other bagno, so we recommend people to choose and ask prices at any other bagno that looks nice.

    Very welcoming staff, and nice soundproof rooms with comfy beds. We could order cappuccino or espresso any time of the day or night! We walked from the train station, and we could walk to the beach in a matter of minutes.
