There is not really anything positive to say about the hotel, which is an annex of the Hotel California, situated some twenty yards away. You pay for what you get !!
Entrance hall and room were both dour and drab. No soap in toilet. A bit noisy at night when fellow guests returned.
Room was clean.
Room was small, building was very noisy, small bathroom. Windowview on concrete.
It was close to the beach and the many exelent restraunts within the area
It was next door to bars with very loud music from 8pm till 4am and impossible to sleep not a hotel for familys or light sleepers & having to pay a refundable deposit of 100 euros for tv & air conditioning remote controls
The location of hotel is perfect - it is in old town. All shops, bars, restaurants and pubs are here. Almost 5 minutes to go to the beach. If you want to reach the town-centre it will take approximately 30 minutes by foot, or less than 10 minutes by taxi (price 5euro). Rooms are quit modest, but ordered. Breakfast would be more various. I was only one time there, because I prefer to eat somewhere else. Cleaning is everyday, also daily changing towels. The room is provided with air condition and TV, which also broadcast some international channels, as CNN, MTV..
No hairdryer, iron and teapot. Very noisy outside, especially at night, even though you close your windows. I think this hotel is fitted for young people, who like parties and can go sleep in the early morning :))))
Great location - although our room had window to the main shopping/eating/bar street we had no problems getting asleep even though the music was loud till 2am. Very helpful staff, good English. And the best thing - we could use the 6th floor swimming pool of the hotel California that we could reach in 1 min.
might be too loud if you have difficulties to asleep (but not in our case cause after spending all day at the beach we were too tired)
The location is excelent for people that want to stay simultaneously near the beach, nightlife and the centre and the price is very reasonable. The room is very clean. There was no reception at the hotel, the reception was done in hotel california, but it is only 20m from Residencial Polana. The breakfast is good, but is also served in Hotel California. We were also able to use the swiming pool of the other hotel.
The noise at night, especially because in the morning there were men working in construction in the building right in front. But we were already counting the noise, as the residencial is located in the centre.
very nice hotel quality/price
Breakfasts on the terrace by the swimming pool
lack of courtesy of receptionists of hotel california (taking care of guests of hotel Polana)
The breakfast, the swimming pool and the cleanliness. Very handy (too near in fact- see below) for the beaches and evening entertainment. Well isolated for normal street sounds during the day, but high volume music from 2 or 3 establishments at night even had the floor vibrating.
Very loud music from various establishments in the same street, drunken singing and shouting and slamming doors till 4 or 5 in the morning. For people who don't want to go to bed till 4 or 5.
Not much but I needed a very cheap hotel and this was the cheapest I could find. The hotel is bang in the middle of the noisiest part of the old town and it is basic!!!! If you are a couple or family I suggest you do not stay here.
