This hotel is up to the standards of Best Western. Our room was clean and equipped with everything we needed (bath products, hair dryer, water boiler, coffee maker..) We would have loved for the bed to be a bit bigger though. We both love some space while sleeping. Airco was very noisy. Free wifi was available.
The hotel is located at half an hour walking from the touristic center. Nearby are lots of good and reasonably priced restaurants.
Breakfast was continental. Nothing special, but enough for a good start of the day. Everyday there was an egg preparation and some meat, cereals, bread, some pastries, fresh fruit and yoghurt. There idea of scrambled eggs was a bit different than the norm, but it was fine. You also could make your own waffles. I found it strange that you had to trow away your plates and cutlery after the meal was finished. Too much of a hassle to clean the plates?
The breakfast room was small for such a big hotel, but it never got too crowded. We took our breakfast very early (at about 6.45u) so I don’t know if seating would be a problem when you eat later.
I found the staff at the reception to be a bit indifferent. Didn’t feel very welcome and when we had a question about bus tickets, the answer was rather short.
The biggest problem we had with this hotel was the noise of the many many pigeons. I guess some had built nests on the air conditioning shafts. The sounds they produced woke me up many times at night. At one moment I even thought a pigeon got into the room, because of the loud noise. We stayed in room 412. I don’t know if other rooms also have this problem.
