My family stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in July 2014, there were 8 in our group occupying 4 rooms in total. The hotel is situated about 15 minutes walk from the main square in town, it is a little hilly so it is easier walk into town (as it is slightly downhill). It is approx. 25 minutes from the airport and about 20 euros.
Inspira has all the modern comforts, rooms are clean, beds comfortable and a great shower. 2 great bonuses are good Wifi coverage throughout the hotel and bottled water in the room which is replaced daily. The buffet breakfast had both a hot and cold selection and food was replenished regularly. Reception staff are friendly, helpful and are reasonably quick with dealing with requests/questions.
One area for improvement is customer service within the restaurant & bar of the hotel. We had dinner in the hotel our first night and drinks at the bar on 2 separate evenings. Although staff were friendly and willing to help, food & beverage staff were quite slow in serving and responding to requests. However this did not by any means taint our experience of the hotel, just something for management to consider going forward.
A couple of tips – There are 4 rooms on each floor which are bigger standard doubles with larger showers and a more spacious interior, these rooms also have a sleeker interior with wooden steps/benches that lead upto the windows – I was in 217, request one of these for a little extra space. Book a little early and there is a 20% discount on the hotel website.
Overall a very enjoyable stay and great value for money
