Hollywood, Florida
Reviewed 4 June 2016 via mobile

The hotel is within walking distance to shops, town and the water. Rooms are small but adequate. They actually have a stocked refrigerator, shampoos, lotions, coffee, etc in the rooms. It's like a big city hotel. Rooms are clean. Food was good, not great, but we were part of a group of over 40.

Our room was basic, but warm, clean and had nice bedding and a comfortable bed. Free wifi. Breakfast was included and adequate. Location is very good, central to the town for restaurants and down to the water or up to the church for a nice walk.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for three nights as part of a tour of Iceland. It is a centrally located older property, with small rooms and small showers that probably should be updated as the sliding plastic doors have the tendency to open while you are showering. We were located on the 4th floor on the side...

Older hotel, smaller rooms that some we had during our Iceland Stay, but felt very much like NYC hotel - most importantly was well appointed and spotlessly clean. Hotel is in a great location, breakfast was good, and the bar on site is lovely too.

The rooms are nice but a bit small. Nice showers and bathroom amenities. Very nice lobby and bar area. Great breakfast included in the price. Good value for the money, especially of you are going to spend most of your time in the community. Close to everything, including whale watching tours (down the street). Internet worked fine. Parking was a...

The location and value were both good. The breakfast included with the stay was fantastic. Beds were comfy too and the room was a good size. The room got pretty hot from the sun in the morning but it didn't make the stay less pleasant. I would stay here again.

When we booked Hotel Kea I was really looking forward to the stay. I ended up slightly disappointed. Centrally located, the hotel photos looked great. I will say that the lobby does not disappoint, but the rooms have a dated feel to them that I can't quite put my finger on, but that is a little off putting. Nonetheless, comfortable...

A totally unique place to enjoy, this city is just amazing and the natural beauty of it is just breathtaking, this hotel compliments everything here to such a detail that I am very much impressed. The weather was not very good while I was here so I spent most of my time inside and the staff where amazing.
