This stinks humidity. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The hotel's location is good but very noisy due... More

The hotel is located perfectly, just 2 mins from the sea, 10 mins walk from the bus terminal, rooms are clean and comfortable, good breakfasts - in general no complains. The receptionists were extremely helpful as guides: all places to see, buses, etc. I was more than satisfied and will come back again, no doubt.

I stayed at this hotel last year and will more than likely do so again. Friendly staff and clean. However room 216 can be described as no more than a cell. Dark and dingy is being kind to it. Request a room with a balcony and I'm sure you will not be disappointed.

We couldn't relax at all due to constuction works of the hotel and the noisy environment. There were no electricity in our room, and after we told it to the receptionist, she kindly said that she will call the maintenance. Probably they are still on their way to fix the problem...

Reception was very helpful and accommodating. Wifi wasnt free but it was working well. Right next to Bugibba square. Our room didnt have a view but it wasnt noisy too. The room was spacious and the hotel was clean. However, the breakfast was really bad. I hope they can do something about it. Restaurants outside offer good breakfast selection.
