My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in this hotel.There was few reviews in TripAdvisor and I chose this hotel based on its location, its star rating,its price ,the size of its rooms ,and most importantly because they accept our very early check-in without extra charges.They also offered us a free transfer with hotel's private shuttle.(remember that they usually have a delay of 24 hours answering emails).
The free transfer did not appeared (they had another guest who had used their shuttle) and we came to the hotel by taxi ( which did not know the place ,like many other locals).
The reception was really very sorry and gave us our room immediately. We went right away to the top floor restaurant and it was amazing, with a very nice view of the city and the sea.In spite of average food , only the view worth staying in this hotel.
The hotel is luxurious and brand new.We were in room 206 which was a standard twin room.It was a big room (30 sq. meters) and had a big bathroom too.The furniture were chick and new and there was everything available in the room(safe,kettle,etc.). It had a poor view. The next day because of some trouble with the key-card,the electricity power failed and we did not have any light. After half an hour they changed our room to a superior room (No. 209) with no extra charge. It was an even bigger room (around 40 sq. meters) with a slightly better side view of the sea. Wi-Fi service was inconsistent and the breakfast was mediocre.Except for the big pillows,the sleeping quality was very good.All places were spotlessly clean and shining.
The location is excellent, 5-10 min walking distance to the beach, city center, Piazza square,Radisson Blue Hotel and the promenade.When you come out of the hotel,just tern to your left and after 3-5 min. you will find 3 very good restaurants nearby namely Munich (no.5), HB (no. 8) and when you turn right after HB , there is Shemoikhede (no. 1 in TripAdvisor list). There are lots of shops in nearby alleys too.
The staff are very polite and try hard to help,but there was always some language barriers which may looks like indifference. Remember that the hotel only accept Lari.
Overall in my opinion,it is a luxury hotel with reasonable price in an excellent location with some issue with its management.I did not see the problems that last reviewers had said regarding safe or window in the bathroom.I may consider returning to this hotel again.Check my photos as I have been in 2 different kind of rooms!
