We chose this hotel for its location and the good reviews it had received, and we were happy with our choice.
Its a basic hotel, but we were on a weeks holidays so only wanted something well priced, and clean. Thats what we got!
Our flight was a late one, and it seemed alot of people on it were staying at the same hotel. The girl at reception was lovely. The couple in front of us had a bit of hassle with the hotel apparently being over booked, but once they got their issue sorted, we were checked in within minutes. We had requested a room on the top floor, which we got, so v happy.
The room is basic, and there are no toiletries provided. Hairdryer, tv remote, and safe key can be got at reception for a deposit. Our 'double' bed was 2 singles pushed together, so not ideal. Towels are provided and were changed everyday. The tv only had 2 english channels (cnn & bbc) and had terrible reception, but we didnt have much interest in tv anyway.
The sun/pool area was lovely. Smallish, I'd say it could get crowded in peak season. They could do with more sun loungers and a few umbrellas up there. The pool is tiny, but for swimming we opted for the tiny beach across the road.
Breakfast was fine.......juices, cereals, breads, hams, cheese, egg, bacon and beans etc. Good for starting a day of sightseeing and sun bathing.
A number of nice restaurants in the area...Frescos (across the road), Vino Veritas (a 5 min walk along tower road towards sliema ferries). Also the tour operators next door are very helpful, we booked a sightseeing bus and trip to the blue lagoon with them.
Finally, a special mention to the staff, who were all lovely and v helpful.
Things I would like to see in the future include, bolting the room safe down. we didn't use the safe, didn't see the point when someone could walk away with it!?! Only changing the towels when they are on the floor and don't change when they are left hanging up, its pretty wasteful to change the towels everyday. Get fresh fruit for breakfast, all that was there was tinned fruit cocktail. Get some parasols on the roof.
I would stay here again.
