Excellent staff!
Hotel staff were impeccable! Very attentive, friendly, and polite. Had no hesitation in changing our room after we noted a loud air conditioning unit in our original room.

Good 6.0
Rooms are old, small - but nice breakfast
Overall, I would not consider it to the standard of Melia hotels, so don't be influenced by the name. The hotel is partly under renovation, but there is no loud noise in the morning. We arrived late at night and had to change rooms 3 times because the air condition was not working (there was a fan in the room), then we were booked into a room that was already occupied and walked into someone sleeping there. The rooms are very small, old and only the bathroom is renovated (although not exceptionally nice). The carpet floors and furniture are clearly quite old. Location is alright, although it is more residential. Staff was very helpful and nice. Great breakfast!

Poor 2.0
Not good at all. Waited nearly 30 minutes to be checked in. Was then given a room rejected by another guest while I was waiting! Double bed was in fact a pull down syndicate bed meant for temporary use. Mattress was terrible ( reason for other guest rejecting room). Would never stay in this hotel again.
