Lovely, friendly helpful staff. Great place, roof terrace, garden, building. The Pillows need burning...very smelly. Otherwise rooms were ok but in need of a good clean and some diy. I would definitely stay again.

Poor 2,0
awful, illegal, and also full of crooks!
AVOID!!!! dodgy hotel. We have booked it ages in advance, and they informed us no rooms were left. They gave us one night only and changed us to a 'private' apartment the next morning. They said we can only pay them cash, which we did and no receipts were given. In the apartment there was no hot water, so no shower for a day and no curtains and it was by the tramline. horrible. Again they asked us pay in cash, and no receipts. I wrote to and they said hotel told them no guests were registered under that name, hotel was full and no one checked in last night. as I do not have receipts they did not believe me. Disgrace to and of course this hotel. I had a child on my hand, sleeping, as we arrived late, and the next day they caused us so much inconvenience. We did not want to ruin the holiday and make a fuss, but hot water, noisy apartment, dodgy money handling and also no curtains, just seem to be a cowboy place. Avoid if you can. I never write reviews usually, not my thing. But this time I want to warn anyone who might be choosing this hotel. It is full of crooks who is trying to make money illegally. I am not sure if the owner knows what is happening behind his back.

Magdalena, us7 night romance trip
Fair 4,0
The WORST shuttle bus service ever!!! strongly DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!!!! VERY ANGRY!!!!!! it costs 5 euro for the shuttle bus, which is the same price as other hotels which provided private cars (Ocean's 7 hotel provides clean,polite,PRIVATE and ON-TIME car). the shuttle bus in this hotel get customers from more than 2 other hotels, one of the timetable in this hotel is 9am, while in the next hotel is 9:30am (not even the last pick up stop). the problem is, if i take the taxi to the airport, it only costs 30mins, which means I risk myself more than 30mins waiting for other customers while I'm not notified before! one of the passenger's flight is 11am, while at 9:40 he is still in the car and waiting for the super slow people from another hotel and he don't even know whether he can catch the flight! When the shuttle arrive the airport it's already 10:15. the hotel staff won't tell you they will waste your time to wait for others while they based on the situation that you're sent to the airport directly, which means I would expect I'll arrive the airport at 9:30 since I take the 9am. If you want to LOSE your FLIGHT, then GO AHEAD and book their shuttle bus :) The room is ok but there are workers in the same building doing instructions, though I thought it would be private. if you want to eat breakfast, you need to go to another building which is very INCONVENIENT. the food is very limited. and the sea view is just so-so, not as shown in the pictures. Overall the environment is ok.
