“the perfect spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2013

This is a great place to stay in Samara. Located on a nice quiet street close to the beach and town so you have peace and quiet but are able to walk to the beach, shopping, restaurants. The staff was wonderful - friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast too with different choices. The pool in the courtyard was a great spot to relax after a day of activities.

At first glance you might think it's too far from town, but that turns out to be in it's favor. The location is quiet, relaxing and secure. The staff was great, especially Danielle. She went above and beyond when my friend had an accident on her bicycle. Thanks Danielle! The breakfast offered great choices and was perfect for starting the day. The rooms had all the amenities and the pool was perfect for lounging and cooling down at the end of the day. I will definitely be back there in the fall.

Located a 5 minute walk from the city center, this is a very good hotel for the price. It has a very good pool with different levels, making it suitable also for kids. Our room was basic but had both safe and a/c.

The bit letdown with this hotel was the surly breakfast staff. They seemed to be bothered by the guests. Breakfast itself was good though.

The best with this hotel is the beautiful pool with the jacuzzi area surrounded by flowers - it´s just lovely. The restaurant is good and the staff is very nice and friendly and make their best to make you feel good.

Rooms are big and clean with AC.

Room Tip: Rooms on second floor are more private.

Extremely clean and modern hotel, but a bit far from things. Breakfast good, staff very friendly. We liked walking short distance to beach by Cangrejal to snorkel at low tide. Quite lovely. Also, Watch out when you are intimate as the bed moves all over the room . Lol.

Room Tip: Number 11 has security light on walkway, a little bright. Also noisy during the day when mechanic s...

We were only here one night but found the staff every helpful, the breakfast was good with 4 types of food to choose from and the pool, while small was very enjoyable. It is on the outskirts of town a short walk to the beach and town. Quiet and friendly. I would definitely stay again.
The only thing I didn't like was that all of the rooms have a full wall of windows facing the balcony. Unless you wanted guests walking by to see you, the drapes needed to be kept closed at all times.
