Chose hotel for its quiet location. Looks like this dock area is being regenerate; new superstore, laser tag place locally, new shopping mall opposite but few shops. Area seems the victim of economic downturn, when area improves will be true 5 star.
Air-conditioned bus from the airport into the centre of town (number 78) for less than 1 euro each. Taxi to the hotel less than 4 euros (note if hotel orders, taxi driver adds 2 euros). Use Hotel’s free shuttle service, then get taxi back. Bus stop on same side goes into town (number 31), bus stop opposite, left, to bus station for no: 78 back to airport.
The roof-top bar/restaurant area is brilliant both during the day and at night. Two small plunge pools (keen swimmers would be disappointed), plenty of space, loungers, brollies, good music, food, drink etc. As others have said the breakfast is great, served till 10.30am, good quality and lots of choice.
Hotel is modern, stylish and has good quality furniture/fittings. The housekeeping team do fantastic job, whole place is spotlessly clean day and night. Staff very helpful, cheerful and friendly. Wi-Fi free throughout whole hotel with no annoying passwords.
