Reasonable stay for pre-cruise night

We stayed here for one night. It is clean and reasonable stay for the price. The free breakfast was decent. We didn't eat in the hotel restaurant. It took us 15 minutes walk to find a reasonable restaurant. Looks like they close early in Greece. Overall, it was value for the money. We did come across a lot of Cruise line customers in this hotel. If you get a chance, don't miss the sunset from the terrace.

nice stay but the room smells smoky even

the first room i was given left me almost choked with strong cigarette smell so that i asked a change. the new one with 3 beds seemed a bit better bearable, wondering why the hotel still allows smoke inside. the staff are all nice and helpful. the hotel is close to the subway station. 2 blocks away there're restaurants and grocery stores. I came across 3 pocket pickings in a single day but it's nothing to do with the hotel.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

there's no subway service until 6 something am, if your flight is earlier, you need one hour drive to the airport. taxi costs you about 50 euro but bus x95 from the centre only 5. you still need a taxi from hotel to the center station, which costs you from 6 to 10

Unbeatable location for the price

Nothing elaborate, but we got more than enough for the money. Instead of taking the main street from the hotel; turn left when you leave the building and you will find nice restaurants and grocery stores. Breakfast is always the same. Free internet is never a hassle and always works well in the room regardless the floor you're on. Oh and the bathroom had a small tub rather than just a shower. That was good. Pleased for the price.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Left when you leave the hotel. Go a few blocks and then search in that area. The BEST was a brick face storefront with square sconce lighting attached outside. All steaks and meats were top quality.

You get what you pay for

This hotel is close distance to the metro station but in a sketchy area. It is super hot in the summer and the air flow is not good. The breakfast is the same everyday.

Hotel was adequate for our needs.

The hotel was fine and adequate to our needs, but the unpredictable strikes of taxis, buses and trains were very inconvenient during our stay. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and sent a driver to the airport after midnight to pick us up.
