The first thing that I liked about this hotel is that the entire staff is good to people. Secondly, if you stay there, you have a 33.3% chance of getting an eastern view out over the ocean---and you can awake to the sunrise on any clear morning. The quaint furnishings only lacked greatly in the fact that the mattress needed to be replaced. And, of course, there is no air conditioning besides radiative heaters; so it is probably the best time to stay there in colder months. It is not a fancy hotel, but it has a very good spirit. I will go there again in the summer, even without air conditioning; and I will recommend it, at least for the 3 cooler seasons, to anyone on a budget.
Honestly, I will never come back in this hotel, poor room, poor cleaning of the room, noisy, no air conditioning in the room, poor breakfast.
The only positive thing is that the people at the reception and concierge are very friendly and every time ready to help.
This hotel was probably at the top between 1952-53. And everything stayed as it was. What I hate the most - half of the lifts was overcrowded and half was not working. And - I hade a huge noisy fridge in my room... just for 2 bottles of tonic. Crazy! Nobody did the roomservis cleaning on other day and the bed was to small.. size 180x80 :)
