Very good location but old hotel, needs urgent renovation. Hotel is located in the best part of the city, walking distance to city center and many attractions. The front way is closed to traffic (I guess during the summer only) which makes it lovely at night. Crowd, of especially young people, enjoying the sea and music from seafront bars all night long. Very nice and variety of restaurants nearby.
I had a superior room which was facing the sea and the castle on sea. It was great to wake up to that view and watch the people from balcony all day long. The furniture and the carpets were very old, I guess not changed since my grandmom visited this hotel while she was at 20's. Something very funny and unbelievable happened; while I was naked and resting in my room, a hotel staff suddeny bumped into my room saying that he needs to refill minibar, as I was listening to music and didn't hear any door bell or door opening, I was fully shocked to suddenly see a huge man standing in the middle of the room. They do room cleaning and bar refill separately and be ready to receive someone in the room without any prior notice. Not to forget, there was no 'do not disturb' card to hang on the door and of course no electonic gadget to serve for that.
Final notes: breakfast variety was very poor and below my expectation, also daily garage cost of 23€ was a bit high, would expect at most 15€
