All good!
The hotel was amazing, the staff was very kind. It’s really well located, near everything. It was very clean. The room was small but efficient with an incredible view.

8/10 Very good

Fantastic hotel
We were greeted by very helpful staff on reception who provided us with all the info required. The suite was very spacious with amazing views of the mountains & pool area. Fantastic atmosphere in the bar area with various entertainment throughout the evening. The only negatives were that there was no other mirrors apart from in the bathroom & there is no tv in the bedroom.

2/10 Poor

Hotel booked a party w loud music until 2;00am
It’s 1:20am and a party with loud music is still going on. We have had no sleep! When we called the front desk we were told a private party booked a room above us and are allowed to play their loud dance music until 2;00am and there was nothing they could do about it! I would highly recommend NOT staying in this hote if you plan to sleep.

6/10 Good

The property is in a great location but not worth the money. Our room wasn’t ready at check in time and the staff weren’t very friendly or helpful. The amenities in the room were nonexistent. We paid 500 euro per night for the tiniest room with no coffee maker and barely enough light to see by. I would definitely not recommend this ridiculously overpriced hotel.

4/10 Fair

Very much a hostel-like type of hotel, which could be great but definitely not when priced at EUR 400 per night. A fun and conveniently located place to go, but overall amenities cannot justify that type of price.
