Situated between the Old City and the beach and overlooking the Arts and Sciences buildings which are absolutely magnificent this hotel was perfect for us. We searched online for the best deal and then emailed the hotel to see if they would price match - they gave us a better price and if you are over 55 years old they apply a further discount. The hotel upgraded us to a delux room with view and credited us with 29 euros to spend on anything at the hotel.
The breakfast buffet was 16 euros each - way more than we would spend so most days we had a light breakfast at a little cafe about two minutes from the hotel. They offer a fixed price continental style breakfast at very reasonable prices. However you can buy individual items from the breakfast buffet at the hotel and have them charged to your room so that is how we used our 29 euros credit - breakfast for two days.
The staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful, the room was super clean as was every other part of the hotel. The air conditioning unit was very quiet and the soundproofing of the room was excellent so we slept really well. There is a blind and shades in the room so you can choose how much light to let in. The safe deposit box is free to use and shampoo, shower gel and body lotion are provided. The room was serviced daily and towels and bed linen were fresh and clean.
My one complaint is about the size of the swimming pool - it is so tiny, about 10 feet by 15 feet that you cannot possibly swim in it. Indeed there are signs at poolside stating max number of people in pool is 6. The pool opens at 11.00am until 8.30pm and we were able to get a sun lounger every time we went but it did get very busy late in the afternoon. On our last day after checking out we relaxed by the pool and then used the showers near the gym to freshen up. The changing facilities were great with shower gel dispensers in the showers. Our luggage was safely stored behind reception and we were given a ticket when we handed it in which we then returned in order to reclaim our cases.
In addition to the lovely walks near to the hotel there are two major shopping centres nearby with lots of cafes and a food hall where you can buy reasonably priced snacks and meals.
