Recent guest reviews

Superb,elegant rooms and very comfortable too! Had a wonderful stay with a fantastic breakfast to start off the day. Was made to feel very welcome and staff were extremely accommodating. Centrally located, beautiful and convenient!

After having read some poor reviews we were very pleased with our stay and had no complaints with what we found. Breakfast was very good, the room was a good size and the staff helpful. The location was perfect for the city and all was easily in walking distance.

A suitable hotel so close to the historic centre and the bars and restaurants but so good if you are interested in being close to the sea. Wonderfully supportive staff but the general decor of the room could do with a facelift

We stayed here for a weekend whilst on holiday in Chrani. It`s not our first time here ( we stayed here a couple of times in 2014) but always wanted to return. A small hotel in a period building, it`s centrally located and near to the historic centre and the bus station. Extensive breakfast and very helpful staff who speak good English

Pleasant hotel with a flare of stepping a few decades back in time. Management should tackle the water damages, get rid of shower curtains and provide outlets in the room. Situated in the uppermost floor, in my bathroom started "raining" from the ceiling during a heavy storm. The breakfast is dull, but the ground floor restaurant is very nice.

This is barely a two star hotel. Basic furniture. Dirty carpet and peeling wall paper in hall. Discolored wooden floor in room. Lumpy mattress. Unhelpful front desk. We had to go to several rooms to find even barely-working air conditioning.

We recently spent another night at Hotel Rex and were looking forward to it, as we've stayed there a number of times before and generally found it to be the best hotel in the area, with nice rooms and great staff. Above all we expect to able to have a good night's sleep in a hotel, especially one that prides itself as being a proper hotel with a distinguished history. We did have a problem with noise on a previous visit, but that was due to other guests and the staff did a great job of sorting that out. However, now the 'management' had decided that they would lay on loud live music outside the hotel restaurant (i.e. directly underneath a good proportion of the hotel's rooms) until 12.30 at night (on a Friday, I don't know about other nights). We complained about this and, as ever, the front of house staff did their best to try and solve it. But the attitude of the restaurant staff was essentially 'We have a license to make noise until 12.30 and that is what we are going to do'! Fine you have a license, does that make it a good idea to annoy your customers? Did any other customers complain? I don't know and I don't care - if you are annoying one set of customers you need to sort it out. Perhaps someone has run the math and decided that the extra restaurant receipts are worth annoying a few guests? Possibly, though I doubt that calculation has been undertaken - or that the need for it even entered anyone's heads there. How loud was the music? Loud enough to stop us from sleeping four floors up, and my partner has a very considerable tolerance for noise - she could sleep through an earthquake (and given she grew up in Greece probably has!). Super disappointed with this; this is where we like to stay in Mani at the end of our holidays and we've brought the hotel other customers too. The 'management', if they are to deserve that title, need to get a grip. Don't come on here and give us a load of spiel in response, do your job(s) properly and sort this out.

The outside is nice. Location is also good. Very old rooms. At least the 4 rooms that we got on the 4th floor. Breakfast was just basic. There are no cleaning (maid) services around the clock. Friendly staff. Great Greek coffee.

Possibility of guided tours starting or passing through the hotel. inclusion of a welcome drink or coffee just as you arrive. Possibility of guided tours also on screen of the room. TV can be wall-fixed where room area is critical.

Was happy to stay in the Rex again this November. I was here to shorten the English winter, as I know that the sea is still warm enough to swim for a good twenty minutes without getting cold. I had hoped to join friends with olive trees for their harvest, but the lack or rain had delayed the cropping. The staff of the Rex were very welcoming. This time I stayed on the third floor in a large room in a corner location with views across the city. The enormous breakfasts of eggs and bacon fuelled me up for my trips down into the Mani and to Koroni. I was able to visit Ancient Messini, now wonderfully excavated and a must for any history lover. At night I was in Platanos Taverna, only a few hundred yards from the Hotel. Cannot wait for my April visit next year !
