      There was nothing in this hotel that could have impressed anyone.

      The owners are just ripping people off. They charged $95 for a double room. I travel all over Europe but I can get a far better room in 40% less price. Standards of cleanliness were pathetic. Worms were floating in juice at breakfast. The breakfast was stale. The fish was giving bad smell. Room furniture, fixtures, were poor. The hotel is in fact a budget hotel but charges are that of a 4 star hotel. There was no iron and iron stand. Broken shower with very low pressure of water. Management not ready to listen our viewpoint and would insist that their occupancy is above 80%. It was a complete waste of time and money. I checked out one night before. I will never recommend this hotel to anyone. I would like to spend extra bucks and prefer to stay in a four star hotel.

      I selected this hotel based on visitors reviews. But, here's advice "one man's food is another man's poison." Here's why. We arrived at the hotel, and carried our baggage ourselves- My wife and I are 65 and 67. Inside the room, the bath towels were used ones. We had to request to change them. The sofa set was like a slippery slide. The staff were polite, but you got very little response, be it housekeeping, room service or the reception. I'd warn visitors to scrutinize bills before they pay. I was given a figure. On checking the draft bill, I discovered 1. I was charged for an extra day 2. Charged for airport pick up ( not requested), and one other item, I don't recollect. Finally, I had ordered an air-conditioned car to take us to the airport. I was appalled when a ramshakled van was waiting at the entrance. The boot of the van was jammed, and the luggage couldn't be loaded. After objecting, the receptionist managed another vehicle. So, my experience with this hotel wasn't pleasant.

      The stay was fine and the staff friendly. The food at the restaurant was good and the staff made sure you were given your choice of food. The fresh fruit juices were just fantastic. The only set back was that too many people were arguing on the rates and charges at the reception counter and the staff were not bothered to attend to the issue. Otherwise it really was a great place to stay. Thank you.
