Perfect Short Stay Accomodation
Hotel is in the most perfect location! Come out of the doors on floor one and you are seconds away from old town square. We had an M room and this version does not have a balcony, however this did not bother us as was only on a short break, and didn’t intend to spend a long time in the room each day. The hotel is clean, rooms modern and spotlessly clean and descent TV with a good selection of channels. There was a minibar in the room which you could use (chargeable separately) however we didn’t use this as there is a supermarket straight outside the hotel! Noise wise there was a very faint hint of music in our room, which is amazing considering how close we were to the hustle and bustle and main strip of bars and clubs! The windows open fully though and do have sound proofing! The pool area and bar were also trendy and good selection of music on low, we didn’t use this area as the beach is literally a 3minute walk away!

The old building turned modern and funky was very well done. Rooms and decor great. Apart from the parking situation, it is perfect and different from other hotels. Top entrance old town and quaint. Bottom entrance straight into the strip. Great hotel!
