Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Central location but not 4* standard
Misleading photos suggesting breakfast is at outdoor roof. Reality was in a room with little light and weak air conditioning, gets warm when a few tables arrive to fill the room. Breakfast selection is limited but staff was helpful and tried get hold of the few 'Engligh Breakfast' tea bags left. The room was spacious, floor needs cleaning. Bed cover and sofer cover were dirty / stained, not of 4* standard. Beddings and towels were clean and fresh looking up to expectation. Good central location, there is a nightly market outside the hotel where the public carpark is. Public parking ends at 8pm when market vendors start arriving. Trading activities go on till around midnight. It could be noisy if you have a room facing the carpark/marina. There is no kettle in the room. Mini bar (and entire room) offers 1 plastic cup.

Staying in the presidential suite
We stayed in the presidential suite and were welcomed with a bottle of prosecco and some local cookies. The room was great and the jacuzzi was a very nice touch, even if not as big as from the pictures. Breakfast was an average self service, with both sweet and savoury dishes and a coffee machine. Perhaps one would expect more from a 4* hotel. It is conveniently located by the town harbour and centre, both reachable within 5min walk. The staff was always smiling and super efficient. Definitely a recommendable place to stay.
