As probably the majority of other travellers we chose the hotel because of its excellent location and because of the rooftop swimmingpool. Well, being really close to the great beach you don´t need a tiny swimming pool that is offering no shade at all and you will probably get better deals in hotels close by that don´t have a pool. If the breakfast would be included in that rate (that doens´t come cheap) Hotel Central would be a better deal. And don´t forget to buy new earplugs in a pharmacy if you don´t sleep like a bear...the windows are not at all soundproof.

A nice place to stay, good welcoming but pictures are sligthly different from reality: - the roof swimming pool is actualy very tight - rooms are dark - and some other small details that matter such as bathroom towells that smells bad... However, the hotel is perfectly situated in the city and we had a great week end!

There is public work directly nearby the hotel, so from 7AM, we had noise... The price quoted (including breqakfast and parking price) do not correspond to real price paid: the parking price, the breakfast were different.

What was advertised as a suite in reality was not a suite. Room layout was illogical with the bathroom in the middle and much of the space wasted as hallways. Sliding bathroom door was physically challenging to close.
