Worst Hotel Yet***

We paid over 300 for a one night stay at the worst hotel we have stayed, yet. Staff was really unfriendly, not welcoming at all. There was no parking for our vehicle. We were asked to park across the street. We were woken up to a loud argument below our room; when we called the front office they suggested turning on the air conditioning to cancel the noise. You would think or even would like to feel like you got your money's worth... by far it was the opposite.

Close stay to beach and city centre

This hotel is easy to reach and close to beach. Even the city centre is with a 10 minute walk close. Room and breakfast ok! check-inn lady could be more friendly. A bit expensive for a stay, but because of the location still ok.

Noisy, so noisy

The front desk check in young man was very nice. Other than that, noise from the other rooms. Too expensive.
