Hotels near the Port

If you need to overnight near the port to continue your journey following morning, the most convenient places to overnight are right near the port. You will find numerous places that offer rooms and apartments in the near vicinity. The best option is to check the hotel booking availability here and choose the best available offer. All hotels listed are situated up to 10 minutes walk from the port. My favourite is the Hotel Petka, it has all the facilities I need, including aircon, breakfast, ala carte restaurant and rooms with sea views. Although I tent to choose garden views for summers as, facing north, rooms are cooler and quieter.
