Let me start by saying this is not a review of the accommodation as I haven’t stayed at the hotel, but it is an account of 14 delightful nights in the company of the bar and reception staff at this wonderful hotel.
The reason for this was simple; the bar at the adjacent George Hotel where we were staying had no draft beer and the price’s for the bottle beers were excessive. Thank goodness we found the Valentina and above all, the barman Armondo who made us so welcome we were destined for 13 more nights of fun and conversation in an extremely convivial atmosphere.
Armondo, Julia and Nemanja who looked after the bar are a credit to themselves and the hotel. They are professional bar persons who take pride in what they do, serving all manner of drinks to the thirsty public of which my wife and me were just two. Armondo should take special credit for the meticulous way in which he constructs the cocktails and the results are spectacular. Likewise, some light bites, may be a selection of cheese, tomato, olives and salami are so welcome whilst enjoying a drink at the bar.
As a result of our visits to the Valentina bar we also hit upon the hotels own separate restaurant, the Avenue where we had an enjoyable dinner every night. Again, nothing was too much trouble and the food was delicious and always served with a smile. Indeed, we were even given a discount card to use in the restaurant which provided for an extra 10% off the bill.
My wife and me cannot heap enough praise upon this hotel or rather the people that run it. They are truly customer focused, friendly and attentive and I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone who wants to be looked after during their holiday.
So well done to all the staff at the Valentina, especially Armondo and Julia who went out of their way to ensure we had a great time. Thanks too, to Alexander at reception who was absolutely charming and finally to the management and owners who have provided the environment in which their staff can flourish. If only the George Hotel took a similar approach!!
