Very helpful staff! Thank you. But the place was in a poor condition: fungus in the bathroom (a lot; could not believe it!), broken shower door (frame still in place but no glass), broken toilet door (harmonica type that did not want to close/open), to have a TV in your room you have to pick one up from the hall and carry it to your room (big CRT type TVs). No wonder it is a 'one star only' hotel. No option to buy breakfast in a large hotel like this is a pain.

The owner told us everything we needed to know about town, attractions, how to get around, about trips, costs, supermarkets etc. This was the best 'Welcome to...' talk every. We had a place to sit outside our room which was great. There was a strong mustiness in our room, it looked quite old. It was not the cleanest either. We had owner's old folks just behind a single door (their living room) so the was no privacy at all. Felt like they were sitting in our room with us.
They did not have our reservation, but luckily had a free room! Very stressful. Great location, just 2min from the old city. But this also means that it gets extremely noisy at night! There is a restaurant downstairs where they have live music - I thought I will through a brick at them when they kept playing at 2am! We would expect staff to have a loooot better knowledge of main attractions (how to get there, with whom, prices etc). They still tried to be as helpful as possible. So thanks.
We highly recommend this place. Very clean and comfortable place with friendly and helpful owners. We had free bicycles which was great. Cycling on roads is not a good idea but everyone cycles on pavements. It is very easy to get to from the bus station, just walk along the main road away from the city. There is a small shop just outside Idassa, you can get fresh bakery there. The place is very close to coastline and there are a few nice places for sunbathing and swimming, away from the crowds.
