The hotel is located very near to the ferry ports, about 15 minutes in a taxi from the airport and just over a mile to the nice area of the town with all the restaurants and bars...However the taxi driver did warn me not to walk out at night as the area is not very nice. However the Metro was 5 minutes walkaway during the day which was easy to use and cheap and then I would recommend a taxi if you return after dark.
The staff in the hotel were really good and helpful in every way possible.
The hotel has a bar for evening drinks which is a nice touch.
Breakfast was exceptional with plenty of choice and makes for a good start to the day, it was also free with my booking which is always welcome.
The rooms are very well presented and generous in size with a lovely king size bed, so slept very well. I thought I would have heard the road directly outside on my window, but no the room was lovely and peaceful.
My only issue comes in the bathroom with the walk in half glass partition shower. The water just sprays out into the bathroom leaving the floor like a skating ring even with the bathmat in place. But then so many hotels are doing this style of screen now its a frustrating niggle with me.
Overall a good hotel which I would use again, just beware of the location after dark.
