Stayed here for 4 weeks - the staff is very friendly and courteous - the ladies who run the kitchen are great! The breakfast buffet is very good with a huge selection of cakes, pastries, fruits, juices etc. The location is good - enough bars/restaurants around the area for every possible budget. Security is very good - never felt unsafe.
The accommodations are basic but solid (3-star - comparable to a Best Western or Holiday Inn in the US) ... the rooms were cleaned daily and well maintained. Bathrooms were small but functional. Beds were on the smaller side - I was on the 1st floor and in the early morning there was some noise from the kitchen as the staff prepared for breakfast.
All in all, a very good value and I recommend this quirky hotel!
