very central in Sea Point if you want to enjoy a variety of very good local cafés & restaurants. Shawn was especially helpful in re-scheduling my flight as he is also a professional travelagent. Thank you Shawn! (btw: I forget my Jack Wolfskin rainjacket - will pick it up next week)

The rooms are fine, some with balconies and the bed was comfortable and the shower room absolutely fine. There were no other facilities but the reception manager was friendly and helpful. We were given an adequate allowance per person to find breakfast locally and there was plenty of choice of bars and restaurants where a good breakfast could be had....

It's a very nice place to stay. When you come outside you're in Main Street but you have the smell of the Sea. For me this is so nice to wake up and have that smell. Very nice room, always clean and more than big enough. Breakfast was also perfect, you could choose what you want, bread - cornflakes -...

I really enjoyed my experience at Casa Elena. I just feel they could do better with upgrading the furniture and flooring. The staff are very friendly and the hotel is very central. The breakfast was quite nice.

The room was clean with TV and WIFI,room price(bed and breakfast) reasonable. Improvement required in some rooms such as room 5 where there is no air con and mirrors. Otherwise the stay was good, breakfast okay. The service was good, friendly staff.

Rooms are okay but can make do of some FRESH room fragrances. Please add more variety for breakfast. Instead of just eggs and bacon daily you can serve eggs with other types of meat eg. pork or chicken sausages, chicken livers etc. overall our stay was exceptional. Excellent location closer to all amenities.

I am so dissapointed ..it was not at all how it was advertised...the bathroom window didn't want to close...the showers don't work either to hot or to cold... It was late at night so we couldn't even find another place.. I booked through booking.com so will NEVER EVER trust it again! We felt unsafe! Please do not stay here!

Thank Michelle M
