Charming hotel
Really lovely hotel in a beautiful location, with exceptional views. Daily breakfast was great too. Only down side was the lack of air conditioning, although we did stay during the recent heatwave.

Quiet neighborhood in a small town. Right next to the lake, the room was spacious. It was a pleasant stay.

2/10 Poor

Awful experience!
The missing Air-conditioning was the main deal breaker . The beds were very uncomfortable ;I left with a back pain. The wifi was really bad , unstable. The pool is open from 10:00am to 07:00pm .All good until you realize that during the day you cannot use it too much and by the evening the staff tells you off at 07:00 sharp in a non polite manner. Durring my stay ( june 20-27 ) I had a surprise of a construction site right next to it . Every morning 07:00 sharp the workers uill cut in iron and wood making a awfully loud noise . No minibar in the room . The rooms are looking awful, everything is old and works like it . On the balcony you get just twoplastic seats over-used and mini table. Overall the worst experience I've ever had.By the end of the holiday I got so pissed that really made me hate this place . The only good parts are: the location and the fact that the cleaning staff did a perfect job considering that the showers were not sealed properly and water will get out all over the bathroom. Nothing more , nothing less.

It was very difficult to get to this hotel, unless you drive, as the town doesn't offer taxis and we were unable to hire a driver. We ended up taking the city bus which wasn't a great option with our luggage and with the bus timetable. The hotel itself was right on the water and five minutes to the beach. The staff was exceptional friendly and helpful. The wifi wasn't great and the hotel didn't have air conditioning so in mid-July we had some hot nights! Overall tho, we were quite pleased. Just ensure you are aware of the lack of taxis and no air conditioning as those things took us by surprise.

Sufficient place to stay for short time, kind ppl!
My friends and I had a pleasant time at this hotel, it is in a quiet area where locals are just across from the lake. It is an older building with very small amenities such as little bathroom space but it was sufficient enough for us for our 2 night stay. Keep In mind they have no air conditioning in the rooms at least none that we saw, however we let the windows open for a breeze and left the fans on and that kept the room cool. The front desk employees were so kind and helpful, they suggested great places for us to eat in the local area and provided us with great service. I would definitely recommend staying here for a short time.
