this hotel is superbly located within short walking distance of the central attractions.It is a luxury hotel,with large bedrooms and public spaces and amenities,yet we were able to get a rate 50% less than the rack rate through an internet booking site.We were offered a room upgrade on arrival for 40 euros per night extra ,which we took.We had a MASSIVE room , balcony with views over the port and a luxury bathroom.The room was decorated in a kind of Japanese minimalist style with flat-screen tv and Bose radio.Even the bathroom toiletries were by Hermes!
The public areas were quiet and calm; the outdoor swimming pool of a good size and not over-chlorinated. The staff were extremely helpful but not over-effacing.
In all, we had a superb 2 night stay. I would unhesitatingly recommend this hotel
