  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

The photos on line must have been taken a long time ago as the rooms are well over due for a make over. At 100 euro a night this was the most expensive place we have stayed and is well over priced. I wouldn't stay again and I wouldn't suggest anyone else does either.

4/5 Good

Nice view overlooking the harbour

Room was available on arrival. Nice quiet room. Nice view overlooking the harbour. Convenient to dine in dining room.

Pros: Quiet room with harbour view

Cons: Dining room food could improve but I was satisfied with the dinner meal.

Location: I did not venture out of the hotel room as I was only there overnight.

    Harbor - Side Hotel

    Rooms and hotel in general were poorly maintained. Carpets in hallway and guest rooms were stained and not clean. Drains in bathrooms (for brushing teeth etc) of all the rooms were stopped up. AC did not adequately cool rooms. Windows were noisy due leaking air when wind blew from harbor. There were no smoke alarms in any of the rooms and security systems did not work. On the positive side they served a nice breakfast which attracted a tour bus of people along with hotel guests.

    4/5 Good

    Close to the cruise port and the airport.

    Hotel location is excellent. Close to the Principe train station (one ride on Bus #3) where you can take a train to go to places in Italy. It's also about 15 minutes to the airport.

    Pros: Location

    Cons: Airconditioning.

    Location: It's close to the cruise port, so if you're coming from a cruise, it won't take long to get there. It's also about 15 minutes to the airport.

    Not a 4 star hotel

    This hotel is advertised as 4 stars, which is completely inaccurate! There were none of the luxuries that I would associate with a 4 star hotel: -The breakfast buffet was meager and didn't even have proper bread, only these tiny bread rolls the size of golf balls. -The bathrooms didn't have seperate conditioner/shampoo/body wash/lotion, only small bottles of combined body wash/shampoo which are useless for women with long hair, and no conditioner. Very cheap move from a supposed 4 star hotel. -The rooms have ugly mustard and blue carpets, and 70s style dinged-up wooden furniture. They look like they haven't been renovated since the 70s, in fact. -There was no blanket or comforter to cover oneself at night. Only a sheet and the outer bed coverlet. -We had a 4-person room, which had two narrow single-person beds, and an uncomfortable double fold-up bed. -Check out is ridiculously early, at 10 AM. -They charge for wi-fi - per device connected! -The hotel is not walking distance from the city center. -The "sea view" rooms mostly overlook the parking lot of the shopping mall next door. -Given the proximity to the harbor and the road, opening the window during the day leads to a noisy room. The rooms were clean and spacious, and staff friendly. Other than that, this hotel is a 3-star if you squint, not a 4-star.
