This was a good hotel. There was construction going on so the sleep was not good, but that wasn't the hotels fault. The bed was comfortable enough. When I turned on the tap in the bathroom it would not shut off. I told the front desk and several minutes later maintenance came to fix it. The place was clean. We...

I arrived at 3.30 pm on Sunday 16 October as part of a 16 strong tour group. This was the last night of a fabulous 16 day trip which was largely spent camping so we were looking forward to an opportunity to spend a night in a "proper" bed with hot showers, etc before travelling home. The reception staff were...

Refurbished rooms are clean and comfortable, with rolltop baths and comfortable beds. The hotel loses stars because of the restaurant - on the basis of two dinner-time visits, the food was ok, but first choices from the menu weren't available.

We arrived at the hotel at 22h30 to find a group of about 20 people in front of us in the queue. One receptionist needed to check everybody in (slowly), no apologies, no plan B, we all just had to wait an hour. First and last time... Get your things organised!

Booked and paid on line, not directly with the hotel and had to reconfirm through a phone call to the actual hotel, since my room had not been recorded.

This property has both hotel rooms and apartments available. The buildings and internal furnish are from the 1950s, I assume, and haven't been updated since. For example, the apartment room ventilation consists of some holes in the wall. The gym is good and richly equipped, the restaurant is so-so, breakfasts are not good enough. WiFi is virtually non-existent - after...
