    Very good

    Nice spa, very clean hotel, helpful staff, ok breakfast, quite close to shopping street and restaurants

    Room was supposed to be a deluxe twin room, but didn't have neither bath tub nor sea/mountain view as described for those rooms. Was propably room for an extra bed, but nothing more either. Some drawers for clothes and a couple of more pegs for stuff in the bathroom would have been nice, Felt a bit wired having to walk from room in a bathrobe in order to get to the spa (and stop by the reseption to ask them to let us into spa). Room/bathroom felt a bit to small for two persons when going there with a friend and not as a couple

    Fabulous

    The staff are all quite friendly. The breakfasts are incredible. They have a bit of everything. As it is a self-serve you don't feel bad taking as much as you like of the things you like. It is well situated for the center of town, but just enough off the main street to be away from the noise.

    The location was great. It is near the ocean and an easy walk into town. The hot tub in the basement was awesome as was the sauna, although you need to hit a start button. I had the whole spa area to myself when I went into it. Fabulous! Breakfast Buffet is on the 8th floor with a great view. Room had wired internet and a flat screen TV with many English channels! Water pressure and hot water is great and lots of hot water.

    The shower is ridiculously poorly designed and everything in the bathroom will get wet when you shower. I stayed on the 3rd floor with an ocean view and it was a terribly load room with the street light shinning right in. It took me a day to notice the blackout blinds! I could hear footsteps above me for what seemed like all night! I could also hear all the cars on the highway below.

    Fabulous

    Our room was kept quite clean. We also paid a 10 euro charge to use the spa area which was a very nice ammenity.

    There was very little room for unpacking clothing and storing luggage. However my wife and I were able to manage with the hanging rods and shelves provided (no dressers). The shower is a bit odd since there is no tub and just a swinging door, but after the first use we figured out how to minimize the wetness and made sure to shower with the door and window cracked to remove moisture more quickly. As others said, there is an issue with air circulation but we opened the window and were fine (we were there mid September). However this may not be a workable option during the winter. There was also construction which unfortunately blocked some of the panoramic views but was surprisingly quite and did not seem to interrupt our rest.

    Lovely linens and light airy rooms.

    The fact the it is adjacent to a large construction site and this was not advertised. Hairs on the bed when I checked into my room. Poor value for money.

    Superb

    We hade a 2 night swpover in Iceland. We appreciated the central location. It was easy to get to the restaurants and the tours were able to pick us up at the door. The breakfast was a pleasant surprise. Sometimes breakfast is just a roll and coffee but you offered everything. The internet was a plus and kept my graqndchildren happy.

    Wonderful view over the bay and the mountain from our deluxe twin room. Breakfast was really nice with a good selection (had it 4 mornings). Great with spa facility in basement; lovely hot tub and steam and regular saunas. We used it every day! The spa facility was included in the room price for the deluxe room. Hotel within walking distance to city attractions. Bathroom rather small with shower and no tub, but worked for us. Could hear traffic from road outside but was no problem at night (less traffic and window closed). Comfortable beds.

    Breakfast was great. Spa was nice.

    Stayed at the hotel July 25-July 28 2011. We had book a Deluxe-room with a sea/mountain view guaranteed according to Bookings.com, but the window was to backyard. Told this to the reception and they promised to to talk with the manager, but the manager didn't ever take contact to us. No discount was given nor we offered to change the room. Last morning we had an early departure and had booked an early breakfast. When we arrived everything was eaten and the clerk reported that sixty people came and ate everything. Wonder why the clerk couldn't say to them that the breakfast wasn't for them and save the food for us who had made the reservation as was asked in the hotel's book. At the end we got one raw croissant. Not very nice ending to our trip.

    Free parking Panoramic view of the restaurant Knowledgeable staff

    - Bad wi-fi connection - Filthy hallways - Spa option is bad value as it is not worth paying for: hot tub was luke warm, sauna was not turned on, must wait to gain access to it in your bikini & housecoat until hotel staff can open the door, etc. - breakfast coffee was very cheap and not drinkable - juices were all watered down immensly

    The room was excellent and kept to a very high standard. The staff were very friendly and eager to help, breakfast was also very tasty! In addition the hotel spa was brilliant and was a great place to relax at the end of the day.
