Excellent for my purposes
This was my second stay for quarentine reasons relating to the local COVID travel protocols. The little hotel is absolutley ideal for want I required It is a budget hotel, not posh BUT clean, cheerful with all that you will need. There is no restaraunt but you can buy in without any problem. I will be staying again and I would recommend it even as a base for a self catering holiday. Ideal for a couple.
Basic lodging but sparkling clean.
Certainly the value, the location, the manager and all the employees. They went out of their way to look after visitors.
Nothing.negative…..I gave it an eight rating because that’s the highest I rate.
The impressions are the most positive. I always prefer to stay in such places – small, quiet and cozy hotels. The rooms are bright, spacious and clean. Despite the hot sunny weather, the room was always fresh. During the ten days of my stay, I never used air conditioning, it was enough to keep the balcony doors and blinds on the windows open, and the fresh sea breeze always brought coolness. Despite the open windows and doors, the mosquitoes did not bother me at all. In general, the stay was comfortable and I will remember for a long time how pleasant it was to drink coffee on the balcony of my room! … And many thanks to all the hotel staff!
Clean..lots of hot water..toilet flushed well..lots of fresh good quality towels..comfy bed..secure..mini fridge..hot plates..microwave..toaster..coffee maker..quiet at night..close to restaurants and night life..walking distance to buses..Graham arranged a late check out to accommodate my flight..felt very safe as a solo female traveler.
