- The location was very central - Small breakfast included - parking for free close to sightseeing hotspots
- a bit noisy
Room had been modernized and updated
Fridge didn’t work, staff was incompetent to handle it, room hadn’t quite been finished being upgraded by missing TP holder, no USB charge outlets, wet paint spots on a filthy room chair, shutters broken, Very noisy work being done.
Rooms are nicely renovated; Bathroom spacious and clean
The BREAKFAST...absolutely nothing to eat/drink apart from some preconfezionate croissant (like plastic) one banana and coffee- tea...please don’t say that’s an included continental breakfast. Moreover the machine to prepare coffe are kinda outside at the reception room so it means you have to carry a tray in your room :/ Awful.
It was close to pier 39. Nice location, not far from the beach. It was really easy to get to places.
It need a bit more cleaning.
The location was good, also we needed parking and we were able to park by the property.
