I stayed in this hotel for the second time. Again I was disappointed by the room. It was a little run down and noisy especially given the high price. Pool, gym and breakfast are quite good. Next time I will probably stay in another Hotel.

Been here for 7 days, it was more than awesome. Hospitality, food and cuisine, facilities, services and everything are just extraordinary. Most pleasant is the sea view from room. Located in the centre of city. Translation to sea port, air port, train and bus stations is also convenient. Highly recommended.
