Absolute perfect location. Short stroll to beach, stadium and great selection of restaurants. Walk to shopping centre. Very clean but decor old. No lifts so must use stairs to rooms. Hard to sleep with outside lights shining through kitchen and therefore entire room, so pack an eye mask if you like ...
