“Okay for one night... and yes, the breakfast is dreadful”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

We stayed here for one night, having read previous reviews. As a result, we weren't expecting much. The room on the 4th floor was very average: clean and had everything we needed. It faced the railway line, so the view wasn't great. The trains weren't that frequent during the night and I didn't hear them, but my partner did.

Indeed, it seemed that there were no hotels on the waterfront (which is beautiful); they're all clustered around the railway station, so ideal if you're coming in by train.

If you're coming by car, there are only a handful of parks in the hotel, so you have to try your luck and hunt down a carpark outside. Go for a white parking spot, rather than a blue one -- then your time parking there isn't limited.

The hotel is well located, just a short stroll away from shops, restaurant and the beach.

The worst bit? The breakfast, probably the lousiest I've had anywhere. The previous reviewers were not wrong!

The best bit? The extremely friendly receptionist -- very welcoming and charming.

For €85 it was fine. Just don't expect much... and head down to one of the seaside cafes for breakfast.

Booked at short notice, so not cheap. Good location - 150m walk to the beach. Managed to book a secure parking space by email. Bedroom was fine. A little noisy with road junction and railway station alongside. Bathroom primitive, but OK (hand held shower, with no screen or curtain). Breakfast very basic indeed: watery orange juice from a machine, tepid milk for basic cereals, warm, slightly rancid butter, instant coffee. We asked nicely and managed to obtain good cappuccini from the bar. If it were cheaper, I would stay here again, but go out for breakfast.

Room Tip: Rooms on the South side, away from the railway, should be quieter.

Reviewed 31 July 2007

I've just returned from a 8 nights' stay at this hotel with my husband and 4-years old daughter.
Good points:
- ideally located, 150 mt. from the beach, the railway station and the playground
- rooms are spacious (ours had been refurbished a few years ago, it had a marble bathroom and the furniture was in good condition)
- affordable rates
- big and free parking lot just opposite the hotel
Bad points:
- catering is quite poor: we had paid for half board (breakfast and dinner). Breakfast is served near the lobby, tables are very small and the choice of food is quite narrow. Despite offering 3 different first courses and 3 different main courses, I would not say that the menu was satisfactory: portions are big but in the end you can only make a choice between pasta and soup. Serving staff was corteous but always seemed too busy.
- cleaning: the room itself was clean but the balcony had obviously not been cleaned for a long time. Floors in the common areas (especially in the restaurant) did not really appeared to be "spic and span".
Overall, I would recommend this hotel to families who need a quick access to the beach (as we did) and like a no-frills approach.
