Stayed for a few days during the Film Festival. Simple hotel, basic fixtures and fittings but clean and comfortable enough. Had a room at the rear of the hotel so was quite quiet, my colleague had a room at the front and he said it was pretty noisy in the mornings from the traffic. But €1 on the bus from virtually outside the hotel to town centre. Take bus nos 1,2 or 20. Never had to wait more than 5 minutes really. Nice Boulangerie up the road, really nice fruit and veg Market on Friday and Saturday and also a mini supermarket directly opposite the hotel open till 2am. Would go back next year.
I stayed during the MIPCOM TV Festival and found the place a refreshing change from the usual cash grasping attitude of a lot of the rest of the town.
When my colleagues were paying £400 a night to stay in town in 3 star hotels without wifi, it was exceptional value, and in all my dealings with the staff, I found them open, friendly and helpful. Official check out is 10 a.m., but the great lady on reception didn't hesitate to organise the cleaning rota so that I could stay in the room into the afternoon to do some work.
The room was fine, everything worked. It isn't a palace, but it doesn't claim to be. Reading some of the former reviews, I approached it with some heaviness of heart, but it was clean and adequately put together. Whilst relatively noisy, La Bocca is an interesting area to stay in - market over the road, and a good bar The African Queen on the corner, beach 3 mins away. The bus into town takes approx 10 - 15 mins, costs a Euro, and after a while I worked out the night bus schedule as well. When I had to walk it it was approx 45 mins.
Dirty ,Filthy, Smelly and Noisy.This hotel is idealy situated.It has major problems with its double glazing (it does not work)the front of the hotel is worst then the back..The reception nice,carpets stained and filty,walls grubby and stained.The three bedrooms we had all had broken furnitue (including kids bunkbeds with broken top rail).showers with curtains,water never runaway properly hence smelly with mould around the floor area.Don't pay for car park ,large market carpark across the road,(always park at the back of the carpark).
