We booked our hotel via the internet having read the reviews with interest and having looked at the alternative hotels we decided to book the Halepa as it was situated out of the main noisy drag. We wanted to have a good rest when we slept and no interuptions. Our expectations were not high but we always go with an open mind.
We also had secure parking for our cars.
We received a warm and welcoming arrival.
The hotel is a 10 minute pleasant walk to the Venetian harbor along a prommenade that was built to avoid walking on the busy streets. We were surprised at how close everything was as we had read that it took 20 minutes in another trip advisor write up. This is not true. The walk is through a well lit park and next to the sea.
The hotel i would describe as shabby sheik. It has a beautiful garden at the front of the house and huge reception areas to read in and even a reading room up stairs on the 1st floor which was rarely used.
On the roof terrace there was a large place to relax and view the harbor.
The first room we were offered was quite dark and a little small with 2 large single beds and we wanted a double bed., We went down stairs and asked if we could change to a brighter and bigger room and they had no problem in changing it.
Our room was a large double room, with double bed, in the old part of the house. It had very high ceilings, neutrally decorated and a lovely large french window.
The air conditioning was perfectly good too.
The bathroom was small but perfectly good for use.
Breakfast was great. There was a large spread of many foods from eggs, meats, cheases, cereals, toast, fresh fruit. We had more than enough and they could not be any more helpful.
We ate our breakfast in the garden and it was very dreamy and relaxing...
The staff were the most welcoming, friendly and happy people we have probably ever met and they made us feel happy and welcome. They recommended restaurants, beaches and areas we could go to that were not touristic.
Would we go back? Yes, without a doubt. I would also recommend the hotel to anyone wanting a retreat as it was everything a great hotel could offer.
It was very clean, great service, very peaceful and a happy place to stay.
