What I liked
Friendly staff (mostly Polish).
Proximity to esplanade and town center
What I didn't like
Outdated furniture and mattress
Mattress was absolutely diabolical! Do not plan on getting a good night's sleep! I woke up three or four different times due to the springs jabbing me in the back!
The prices are a little steep for the outdated rooms.
Upon arrival, you are given a skeleton key for your room. If you leave the hotel, you MUST leave your key at the front desk. The only thing I didn't like, was at night, the keys were left unattended on the rack. Or placed in open view on the receptionist's desk for anyone to help themselves to.
The place feels like a retirement home. The walls are paper thin! You can hear the stairs and walls creaking along with random fire doors slamming shut when anyone walks through them.
I went in with the open mindset of thinking its just somewhere to lay our heads down after exploring the island. The mattress in room 15 will haunt me for some time! If you have high hopes and expectations, I advise you leave them in the lobby!
