Excellent value hotel in a very good location in the heart of the old town, with numerous excellent restaurants close by. There was also a useful supermarket opposite to the hotel. If you turn left as you go out of the hotel and walk the short distance to the end of the road, you come to a particularly attractive part of the coast, with some attractive cafes and a very good restaurant frequented by locals. We only discovered this on our last day!

Our room was modern and a good size,the staff were helpful and friendly and spoke english very well. The pool area was a bonus considering the hotels central location but sunbathing space was a little crammed. All in all a good hotel and I would be happy to stay there again.

Hotel centrale carino, rapporto qualità prezzo buono.le migliori camere sono quelle che si affacciano sulla piscina, sono più tranquille, quelle sul lato strada , un pò più rumorose, il bagno comunque non è il massimo.La colazione è super, e nel complesso hotel è buono.
