I am normally happy to have a hotel just as a base to go back to in the evenings, but this was such an uncomfortable stay that I dreaded bed time! We stayed for a week, and were given a room on the first floor with 2 single beds for the adults and a cot bed for the baby. The single beds were hard and uncomfortable, and I could feel the metal mattress springs poking through. After the first night I had to lay two blankets under the sheets to help pad the mattress. I'm not sure why we weren't given a double bed, and our travelling partners had slightly more comfort with their double mattresses.
The rooms on the first floor were rather dismal and incredibly noisy. The noise from the 24-hour reception carried badly, we could hear conversations at all hours of the night, as well as people stomping through on all floors and banging doors.
One of our travel partners requested to be moved from his first floor room which was dark during the day, and overlooked a building site, filled with rubbish. They were moved to the 4th floor, which was an improvement on the room but again very noisy (kitchen and dining room upstairs, loud conversations, banging doors etc). Our other partner was given a room on the 3rd floor, which I think had been renovated and was 10 times better than the one we had.
The staff were friendly and helpful, and the best thing about the hotel was Maria B who worked in the rooftop bar and made our time at Adonis much more pleasant. She was wonderful - very hospitable, helpful and made us feel so welcome!
Our week-long stay wasn't cheap either, and a cheap price can be the tradeoff when a hotel is of such poor quality, but we lucked out with that as well. I would never stay at Adonis again and would advise looking around the area for other places. We had friends staying at a 4 star hotel nearby which was comparable in price!!
