An indifferent welcome from the desk, one lift out of order...not a good start.The rooms were quite small , but plenty of hot water for the shower and the plumbing all worked. Draw back the curtains, the Mediterranean. What a view. The laundry arrived early the next afternoon, DRY, and it was cheap.
Unique Quality: Placed on a point on the Corniche the mecca has geat views for the money.
All of the rooms in the hotel have sea view on the Mediterranean sea. The balconies of the rooms not facing direclty the sea, face the sea in an angle, thus You can see the top of the neighbouring houses as well, which are not the most beautiful view...
Our room was clean, decent, the bed was comfortable, but the furniture is not new, and the bathroom was nothing extra. There was no curtain around the shower, and the toilet paper roll is half the size of the European standard (in length) so probably if we had any stomach problems, we would have run out of it. But we were OK on that front. Hot water was not really hot, it was warm allright, but not hot.
Count at least a minimum of 30 minutes for breakfast, as they prepare it slowly. The breadsticks and the cheese we got were tasty. The view from the restaurant is very nice, overlooking the sea.
Directions: Right on the Corniche, but not downtown. Count about 5 minutes to catch a free taxi, and another 10 to get to the center.
