We can understand most of previous reviewers' comments; however, we couldn't fault the staff, whom we found friendly and helpful at all times.
Maybe we were lucky by going out of season (and getting an upgrade), but for us it was excellent value for money: rooms large and very well-maintained, Most of all, a fantastic breakfast (nobody seems to have mentioned this recently). As the weather was vile (late October), we ate in the downstairs restaurant one evening: pleasant, but limited, and not really value for money. Excellent indoor pool and spa facilities: wife thoroughly enjoyed a massage.
Location: just about walking distance from Lapad beach; from a shopping centre (not easy to find); and from a group of very good bars in Lapad which we had seen from the bus. To get to or from the Old Town requires a taxi or bus: bus service (Route 4) very good, every 20 minutes, takes 15 mins. Having said that, I'm not sure the Excelsior or Argentina would be much better, each is a fair way out of the centre.
The view from the rooms out over the bay is superb: watch the sun setting and the cruise ships leaving and arriving.
