For 55euros per night we had a family suite. A large living room with two sofas that double as beds for children. It also had a family sized dining table and chairs. (There are no cooking facilities, but there is a fridge.)This room has two sets of balcony doors and you have the most beautiful views across the harbour. The perfect spot to sit and have a evening drink. The main bedroom was spacious. The bathroom was smallish; no bath, but a decent shower. The rooms are not modern, but they are spotlessly clean. We experienced no noticeable traffic noise even with the windows open.
The price included a brilliant breakfast. Of particular note: freshly squeezed orange juice; homemade jams; local honey; warm hardboiled eggs. There was also cakes, biscuits, cheese spread. I have stayed in many budget hotels and this must rank with the very best for breakfast.
The two ladies we met running the reception were lovely. They could not have been more helpful or welcoming.
The buildings along the waterfront are a little strange as they are built into a hillside. At pavement level you have shops. A flight of steps leads up along the side of the building. At "first floor" level you enter the hotel proper. Here is the reception and breakfast room and access to most of the hotel bedrooms. Back up the steps to "second floor" level you reach the separate entrance to the family suite. The hill is steep and the frail may find the climb difficult. For most folk with reasonably sized suitcases there should not be a problem. There is no carpark, but we didn't have any trouble finding street parking along the waterfront.
