"I liked the 50's style. Just in the middle of city (if anyone has time to take advantage of it). "
"Worn out (but not badly) and thus a bit pricy. "

"personnel at the reception was friendly and knowledgeable. excellent English. central location there is a great Tapas Bar on the ground floor right in the hotel"
"The hotel has all the charm of a post-Soviet warehouse with the furniture to match. The roomkey did not work and it's a VERY long way back to the reception - the hotel is large! The room (at least the one I had) was quite big, but the mattress was saggy and way too soft. Breakfast was minimalistic, dirty tables everywhere, spilled coffee on the flor. But a nice view over the city from the terrace. For all that the price (€ 185,00 for one person and one night) was outrageous!"
