Dear trvlr1938, Thank you for your review. Side sea view rooms were renovated last January and in January 2019 we will renovate the balcony rooms. As you clearly stated in your review (Very Cheap) one cannot expect luxury. Hotel is advertised as it is in the city centre close to all pubs and restaurants. In the meantime we thank you for your review.

"Sea view, higher floor"
"choose a higher floor if noise would be a problem for you."
"we were located on the 1st floor and even tho there was a bar underneath it did not disturb us"
"If you are daft enough to book this hotel only book rooms on the 4th or 5th floor with an alleged sea view ( they overlook many roofs)"
"Balconies are OK but inward facing rooms will be quieter."
US$38 - US$94 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
