This was probably 4 stars 20 years ago but not now. The hotel requires some redecorating. Our room an bathroom were really small. It was 33-34 C when we arrived and nobody at reception told us that the air con had not been working for 10 days. We only found out when we got to the room and found a badly functioning fan. The sink was blocked and we couldn't use it for a day. We requested 2 additional pillows 3 times but we never got them. The staff at the reception had no customer service skills and it always felt like we were bothering them. Parking is hard to reach and places are limited - if you don't get a place you have to park in the public parking at 17 Euro per night. The hotel is situated close to the cable car and walking distance to the beach but they don't offer a space on the beach. With 10 Euro per person they can drive you to a place about 2Km away where you can use their seaside facilities. I would not recommend this hotel as we did not enjoy our stay there.

Hotel location is best part of this hotel. Desk service was poor, rude and refused upgrade. Rooms are out of the 1950's and in shabby condition. Would NOT stay here again.

HELL-HOLE - DO NOT BOOK!!!!! STAY AWAY
ROOM WAS DIRTY AND POORLY MAINTAINED - LIGHT BULBS OUT AND THEY DID NOT FIX). THERE WAS NO AC ( TURNED OFF IN SEPTEMBER) OR WIFI IN THE ROOM AS ADVERTISED. ONLY WIFI WAS IN THE LOBBY WITH 1950'S VINTAGE COUCHES. ROOM HAD A GREAT VIEW BUT THE RAILROAD WAS IMMEDIATELY BELOW THE HOTEL. BETWEEN THE TRAIN NOISE AND THE STREET NOISE IT WAS UNBEARABLE, POOL WAS CLOSED FOR THE SEASON ( THIS WAS NOT COMMUNICATED) TO TOP IT OFF THE ELEVATOR WAS UNRELIABLE SO WE HAD TO CARRY BAGS UP AND DOWN 3 FLIGHTS, DO NOT BOOK A ROOM AT THIS HELL HOLE.

Sea View? Then youll be given one of the rooms in the annex building up the mountain. To access it you take the lift to the 5th floor veranda, go down a 12-step metal staircase then up 64 steps to your building. Once there, it's another 20 steps up to the ground-floor and more up to uour room, as there's no lift in that building. Air-Conn? Only fron June to September, no matter what thr weather is at other times. Wi-Fi? Only within 5 metres of Reception. Not in bedrooms; not in the bar; not in the restaurant. Rooms in the main building either face onto the road or onto nothing.
