Not close to any amenities

Posted Nov 27, 2016
Pros: Tranquility
Cons: Service in the coffee shop and dinner in the restaurant. 16 Euros for breakfast is expensive and not good value.
Location: Adjacent to the railway station and shopping centre.
A very quiet and peaceful hotel. Disappointingly no coffee making facilities in the room.

Very nice hotel, it was very quiet which is good. Liked the décor/design. Breakfast was good. Location was excellent for train and bus station and the shopping mall next door was handy. Is on airport Linea bus route and hop-on/hop off sightseeing route. The walk to old town was only about 15-20 mins.

Convenient hotel off station platform.

Posted Oct 17, 2016
Pros: Modern, international and well priced. No noise from location.
Cons: The bedding and pillows were uncomfortable, hard bed even for hard bed enthusiasts.
Location: Supermarket in shopping mall. El Corte Ingoes 10 mins walk away. Train service excellent but expect to queue an hour for ticket.
Adjacent to shopping mall with taxi drop off and next to tourist info desk and sightseeing bus. Half hour walk from city centre.

Good location immediately beside railway station.

Posted Sep 1, 2016
Very friendly staff, lovely modern rooms. No real fancy frills, but genuinely comfortable, very clean, with everything you need. We were offered shower facilities etc after check out, which was very welcome after a final few hours investigating the city. 15 mins walk from the centre and port areas, so quite accessible.

A great hotel location

Posted Aug 8, 2016
Pros: Everything
Cons: I don't know
Location: Hop on and Hop off tour bus location. Trains to everywhere location. Shopping mall and many restaurants all in AC comfort.
This hotel is connected to a great Mall and the Train Station. It cost us 3.80 euro for both of us to travel from the Airport to the Hotel. 12 minutes. The Hotel is very modern. Great TV reception, Internet and view along with excellent comfortable bed and upscale bathroom. Super.
