Breakfast NOT clear in Travel Republic Description......Unusu al i have to write Neg about TR
Author Name: JD
Advantages: Central to everything
Disadvantages: Pickpockets in Nightclubs & Metro
Nice Central Location, though on walking up ave Libero graffitti on the walls nearby and surrounding buildings was a little off-putting. Staff very friendly and helpful a nice 'Budget' Hotel, clean & tidy and again near to all the shops, restaurants, clubs, pubs. Only negative regards hotel is, and is not Hotels fault but Travel Republic advertised it with Breakfast which i presumed was a Full 'fry-up' type but we had paid for a Continenental, not to bad a selection of Croissants, Toast, Yoghurts, Ham, Cheese but always look forward to a fry-up on my travels. Maybe Travel Republic need to state it clearly, i would of otherwise probably booked elsewhere or without Breakfast. This is no slur on the Hotel itself. Everything nearby, plenty selection of Cafes etc as above, area Sol is very good, shopping excellent.
Nightclubs be aware my son got his 6 week old iphone5 pickpocketed in nightclub, NEAR the Dreamers nightclub in sol area so be aware, door staff were unhelpful and claimed they called the police, but after 40 mins no sign of them, was only 20 odd people in the club at the time so could as my son seems was a set up by the club. so be aware, this was NOT in Dreamers but very close to it, my son could not remember the name of it. Metro is excellent would advise to get what we did a 3 day tourist pass for 17/18 euros unlimited travel inc from Airport, was over for Classico game be aware also of pickpockets on packed Metro especially on Matchdays, very frequent and quick Metro service.
Summary: Overall satisfactory stay, & good location, would of given 4* if TR had CLEARLY stated Breakfast
