Good hotel by the main train station

Posted Feb 17, 2017
Good location. Away from the main tourist area, but an easy, flat 15-20 minute walk to the old are, shops and port. No3 bus is good for tired legs! Great staff, all very helpful. God room and breakfast. Would stay in this chain, and in this hotel again. Lots of good local restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk.

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.

Great stay. Room was great, with huge comfortable bed. Staff and reception excellent. Great location if you need access to the train station, a bit of a walk to anywhere else.
