The hotel has a perfect location in the city center, just a few steps from both sea promenade with bus stations and Christmas markets. The services are excellent. The room offers a really huge and comfortable bed with a lot of pillow choices, so it's not possible to be dissatisifed. There is a pool on the top with magnificent view, which is comfortable even in the winter season. Very good breakfast with a lot of options. Although we are quite demanding, we were absolutely satisified and we would definitely come back.

Lots of extras in the rooms.||The pool temperature was perfect for a New Year's Day swim. ||Breakfast had so much options||||||I also highly recommend this hotel if you have mobility or accessibility issues. They whole building is adapted to support and the staff are brilliantly helpful
