Small and friendly hotel in a very central location. Nice and perfectly cleaned rooms of a good standard. The breakfast buffet offered a good variation of food and they even served fried eggs and bacon! We had a room with a balcony with sea view.

great stay, great hotel, we had a lovely room overlooking the sea and the sound of the sea was very soporific... I liked the friendly staff and a decent breakfast where nothing was too much trouble. I only booked for one night but liked it so much we stayed a second night!

Sea-view room was 28c. Air conditioning didn't work. Staff did not know how it worked. We tried 5 other rooms - 4 without operational AC. Eventually settled for room 5 at the back where the Air con worked! Next morning told that Air con was working, but no idea why it hadn't worked the night before, so decided to move...

This hotel is in an excellent position. We had booked a suite room which had recently been modernised and had a large balcony overlooking the sea. This was a very large room with a sofa and large coffee table. We had a kettle and tea provided but no coffee. When I enquired at reception about the lack of coffee I...

One more time everything was perfect! The staff is very friendly and they remembered us since the previous year. I had taken the suite which is a very beautiful room with a huge bathroom, face to the Libyan sea. Everything was clean and the breakfast was even better than last year.

Each and every concierge at this hotel was so welcoming and nice. I stayed for 5 nights and they couldn't be more accommodating. The view from the sea view rooms is definitely worth the extra money. As long as your ok with it not being a luxury hotel, I'd highly recommend Hotel El Greco.
