The hotel opened in 1996 and immediately received a 4 star rating. Several refurbishments have taken place over the years, as is standard practice in any hotel of this category. It has 6 floors and 76 rooms, each with the amenities that are the norm in an apartment hotel, such as the equipped kitchen. Another detail, which you'll find in nearly all the rooms, is a large terrace. Some even include a table, some chairs, a line to hang your laundry, and 2 deckchairs for a tanning session. Some of the communal areas are decorated in the manner of a sultan's palace, with wall and ceiling frescoes depicting beautifully trimmed gardens. The numerous paintings of Moorish scenes and jalousie windows add to the refined atmosphere. You will also be pleasantly surprised by the welcoming entrance hall. It's a vast space divided into 2 parts, with comfortable sofas and free newspapers (local, English, and Italian press). Don't forget to visit the Sultan Club spa one level below the entrance hall where you can enjoy many services, such as manicures, pedicures, a sauna, UVA rays, hair removal, massages, a Vichy shower, a water circuit, and Pilates sessions. The layout of the hotel has been carefully thought out: a narrow garden surrounds the building and becomes a bit wider around the outdoor swimming pools (one for adults, the other for children). During high season, things tend get a bit crowded (in terms of space and number of deckchairs).
