We stayed at the hotel as part of a travel package with a group of about 20 people, so had no choice of hotel. It is in a good location with trams into the old part of town a 100 metres away.
First night not good so after speaking to the friendly hotel reception staff we moved into what I consider the best rooms at the hotel.
If you have any chance select rooms 601 to 606 which have a small balcony, or 701 to 706 which don't. You can see the sea from the balcony. The other rooms which are similar are 607 to 613 and 707 to 713 which face onto roof tops.
There is a small shop 20 metres from the hotel which sells drinks, fruit and a range of products, and is open from 09.00am until 02.00am the next day.
Plenty of restaurants within walking distance, not all serve beer and wine, so ask.
