The location is great, the price is wonderful, the staff is very friendly, but that's where the benefits stop. It's very hard to find as there are only two small signs and no instructions on how to get in. After we figured it out, we got buzzed in but were left waiting for 10 minutes before someone helped us. No...

We stayed here over New Year's and it was great. Perfect location, just a few minutes walk from the Old Town, and just on the other side of the road from one of the beaches. The rooms were quite comfortable and the little balconies were appreciated. The staff was super friendly and they had excellent handouts for ideas of what...

It's very new and nicely fitted out. Rooms are small but functional. Wifi is excellent and nothing is too hard for the staff to fix on the spot. The location is very central but 3 minutes walk outside the craziness of the old town, which gives you easy walking access to both the high life and the locals eateries in...

There is a small balcony that you can step onto and look out but not enough room to sit out. The room although not very spacious was very clean and comfortable. There was an excellent fan and...

A modern room with the bare necessities. A good bed and a good bathroom. Clean. Nice staff. One drawback can be the traffic on the road if you get a room in that direction. Well situated in the best part of the city.
