We stayed for two nights end of July 2014. Room excellent, service outstanding, restaurant very good, bar handy and well stocked, location out of center of old city, yet very good in my opinion, with very good taxy service. HOWEVER, the surprise came at check out: For international telephone call the charge was 4 yes FOUR Euros per minutes. That is about $5.50. The fact that I got a 40% reduction in charge does not change the price or the very bitter (80 Euro bitter) feeling. Also, charge of 3 Euro for use of a computer for 15 minutes is unreasonable, should be a service free of charge.
As a comparison: At Holiday Inn Lisbon, a few days later, international calls to same country were charged at 74 Euro cents a minute, a perfectly reasonable charge.
