Reviewed 21 November 2017 via mobile

We were supposed to stay in this hotel on the 20th Nov, however due to the inflexible check-in times.. the property locked up for the night, leaving us with limited choices.

Check in closes at 7pm. We arrived at 8pm as we were hiking and the trail took longer than anticipated. After waiting outside and trying to call the property, there was no answer.. just an answering machine.

If you wish to wish to have flexible travel, wouldn't recommend staying here.
Property made zero effort to contact me via email or phone, to ask me why we hadn't arrived.. or attempt to accomodate us.
Would never have booked this property had I known they were inflexible, and needed hand-holding in customer service basics. Next time, will definitely be checking the check-in times with scrutiny.
I travel quite often and this is the most disappointing customer service I've experienced in awhile! Most places simply give you a quick call to check what's happening.. !

We stayed for one night in a double room with private bathroom, paying an overall 72 euros breakfast included.
Given the nice position (close enough to both the train station and the aquarium) and the price, I am fully satisfied with this hotel.
A little advice: mind the check-in and check-out hours, because they are serious about those. If you think you may need different timing, just call them and they will arrange something.
In our case, we arrived at 9pm and we simply checked in online in the afternoon, so we were able to get in by ourselves (the door opens with a code).
Breakfast is nothing special (croissants, cereals, bread and jam, coffee/cappuccino) but it's actually close to an average Italian breakfast.
The staff is nice; the room we had was, again, nothing special but still clean and comfortable.
All in all, I would recommend this place.

We arrived before the check-in time, so they told us we should wait till 2 pm. As we were sitting down by the reception (because traveling isn't really exhausting right?), the wonderful host gracefully approached us and said that we have to pay 10€ to sit. Yeah, that happened.
They didn't help with the luggages, and the host bluntly interrupted my friend who was asking him a question because his shift just ended.
They say there's free WiFi, but good luck getting good reception in the rooms. After 8 pm, the entire reception area is closed, so to get some signal we had to sit on the floor. There is also no cellular signal in the entire hotel.
The next morning when we were heading to breakfast (which we thought was included in our booking because the host mentioned it), he again approached us to say that breakfast wasn't included, and we had to pay 10€ for it. It's a good thing we didn't get it because it looked bad anyway.
The only good things I can say about this place really are that it is close to the aquarium and central plaza, and that the pillows are comfy.

Central location; good value for money; staff helpful - recommended a good restaurant, let us leave luggage for a few hours and got us an 'instant' taxi.
Up a lot of stairs; breakfast skimpy but coffee was good.

Thank you to the staff of Mini Hotel for the attentive service and attention to security. Upon re-entering the hotel I was pleased to see the staff verify our identity for room access.
The rooms were adequate and for the cost good value for location and service provided. Very little natural light. The morning breakfast with fresh espresso and cappuccino was appreciated.
