Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Thanks for Everything"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The two nights we stayed here at Hotel Blue was great. The room was very clean including the towels and all of the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was also very good. We had a great time, enjoyed staying here. Next time we will stay again for sure, close to everything we wanted to see. Thanks to the lady that works in the dinning area she was very good in checking that everything was there for breakfast and very friendly. It is nice so to stay in a hotel where everyone treats you nicely. Also, thanks to the front desk staff.
