Nice Modern Hotel, Close to the Beach

Posted Jun 13, 2017
Pros: Clean and modern
Cons: Noise insulation?
Location: Beach, sports facilities, local bars and restaurants
Located on seafront by the Olympic village, the hotel is well situated for the beach and sports amenities. It is also a little away from the bustle of the city centre giving the best of both worlds. Unfortunately my room was on the first floor and faced directly on to the street so noise from late night revellers and public service vehicles was a problem. While the hotel restaurant was good, there are also a few restaurants located just down the promenade, but choose carefully as not all are up to standard. Overall a pleasant stay and would definitely use again.

Off season stay

Posted Feb 6, 2017
We stayed for 6 days in the beginning of February. Our room was nice, clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful. However, the hotel on many floors was under construction. The pool isn't heated, so could not be used. The indoor hot tub was very small and not very warm. Thr steam room was broken.
