We booked the hotel because we wanted something in town and not too expensive. The Hotel Elite is well located and seemed good value at about €140 per single room. We booked three.
We arrived and were welcomed and checked in without fuss, which was a good start. The lobby smelt of cigarette smoke and there was an odd smell of food on the fourth floor. To log onto the (slow) wifi I had to traipse all the way down to reception to be given a hard-to-read code on a slip of paper. This could only be used once and on one device so wouldn't let me use my phone.
And then the room - it was compact but had everything including a chilled minibar. But it was fiendishly hot. Even with the windows open so that street noises intruded the temperature was tropical. The bedding was clingy and the pillows soft to the point of being ridiculous. And it wasn't just my room. And then a cramped breakfast room serving a meagre, sad continental breakfast. The coffee was the best thing about it.
