Minerva Premier Hotel4.0 out of 5.0

Where do I start? This hotel was one of the worsts I have ever visited in all these years. Very dirty, the room was full of mosquitos. My fiance and I woke up at 4 am trying to kill the silent mosquitos. The wall Ws full of blood marks (who knows how many people had our same "adventure"? 🤔).The toilet was small! The door of the wardrobe was broken. At the corner of the ceiling there was this big mark of humidity. Did they ever paint those rooms? Still wondering! The sheets had black stains. In the end....the breakfast....nothing in the bufé was eatable!
Beside the good location, aprox. 1km from Aristotelous Square, there is nothing good to mention. Poor cleanlines (beds, sheets, bathrooms, balconies), poor breakfast, small rooms, noisy area (boulevard, bars and pubs).
The hotel must have seen better days, but now it seems poorly run and maintained. The rooms are spacious, with classic furniture, but I would recommend a more thorough cleaning before any guests is checked in. There is dust and grime in every corner. The sheets and the towels were clean though, the bathroom as well. Breakfast was poor and served in an awkward space.
Wotif has this property as 4 star, far from it, the photos must have been taken when it was first built, needs to be downgraded to a 2 star. It's a grand building and in it day would have been lovely. No fridge and no light bulbs in the lampshades which were frayed and dusty. Internet was also very very poor in the rooms and was down in the morning when we were having breakfast. Breakfast was adequate.
terrible !!! stayed there for 2 nights. a room of 16sq.m with 3 beds which was dirty (we moved a side table by the bed and underneath revealed that it was probably not cleaned for ages), all hancooks were ready to drop, dirty bathtub ,wont recommend it especially if there are children involved
Hotel is at the perfect location - there is a bohemian quarter called Ladadika next to the hotel with many restaurants, pubs and bars, as well as the city center few minutes by walking. Entire hotel is in old style with old furniture, but very clean and refurbished. It also has a living room. Air condition is working, bathroom is clean and breakfast is also good. I have to mention that the receptionists are very kind and helpful - I've got sunburn and the girl from reception gave me her medication, asking everyday If I am alright. All in all, very good value for your money.
The problem with Minerva Premier Hotel I think is in the expectation, given that is has a four star rating. When you get there you find it is a very old and once beautiful building in need of a lot love and attention!! Even a few basic improvements and maintenance would make a huge difference. That said we stayed for 5 nights and found lots of plus's! You are in a great location and once you get your bearings you can walk to all the important places, except perhaps the castle but there is bus 50 to take you there for 2euros! There is a wonderful area called Ladadika (walk towards the sea) where you will find numerous restaurants to choose from and while away your evenings. There are very little services available although you do get shampoo/ body wash. We took our own travel kettle so we could have a cup of tea in our room. TV only has world news in English and breakfast is very basic. But if you choose to stay here you know you paid a budget price, and you get what you paid for. I do have to mention the receptionist Daphne. Who met us each day with a lovely smile and who went out of her way to make our stay a pleasure.
The hotel has a very good position if you want to visit the town, but it's on pubs and discos and it's impossible to sleep if you keep the window open. Air conditioning working, but very noisy. The room good for 4 and was clean, old furniture and old style. Staff nice and available. Good for one night if you don't want to spend too much
Me and my family stayed for 2 nights at the hotel, and our opinion is that the hotel position is really good, worthy for everything around, good breakfast, so is good for value you paid. Yes, old building, but they had made refurbish to improve.
This was an awful hotel stay. We smelled mold as soon as we walked into our room, and the smell never left. It was on the ceiling (which was peeling), and in the bathroom. The toilet barely flushed (the one in the restaurant was broken and/or clogged every time I wanted to use it), and the shower head did not attach to the wall. Our air conditioning broke (and got stuck at a very high temperature), and the staff took almost a full day to fix it. I did not sleep through the night once because the bedsprings dug into my bag, and there was so much street noise from the bars in the area. Breakfast was not very good, the wifi did not work as promised, and except for one employee, the staff was extremely rude and unhelpful. The location was fine, but this hotel is really not worth a stay.
