  • We liked the location and good food abound downstairs and across the street too. This place is near perfect and the staff are friendly and considerate, including Penny the giant schnauzer. Room are very clean.

    Very bad ratio quality/price, the shower head was obviously selected by a male.

  • In a nice location, the pub across the street was great, met some friendly people there and the hotel was very clean and the hotel'. The price was great and the lobby was fine. Staff were very helpful and room was modern.

    Less than the budget chains and loud, outdated tv. Slow elevator, awful manager.

  • The location is amazing, only a 10 minute walk away from the harbor/ and the area around the hotel is very interesting and colorful. The lobby dog, penny, is the best, staff are friendly and helpful, the mirror and wash basin is in the main room near the entryway. La pensione and the great neighborhood restaurants give a wise.

    Very bad ratio qualityprice and the reception is very poor. Elevator is slow and the pillows could have been better too.
