The people at the hotel were all friendly and they cleaned the place well. The location at the beginning of the Beiramar was quite good, yet it was quite a walk from the crowded area. The building itself was really run-down and the rooms looked like the rooms of an Eastern bloc hotel. We stayed there for 7 days. 5 days we had no hot water, only the rain that leaked through the roof of the dining room. The breakfast wasn't special, but did you really need it there? If you want to have a good buffet, then this was a perfect hotel. If you want a comfortable place, then you need to spend some more money and go somewhere else.
