I was booked into this hotel for 4 nights while on a business trip. I only stayed 1 night before finding another hotel. The room I was given, was at the back of the building overlooked by the opposite building. There was a flat roof outside and the air con units were covered in pigeon faeces and cigarette ends. Disgusting is the only way to describe it!! The room it’s self was dingy and in desperate need of gutting and a refit. Curtains thin letting in daylight in the morning. Noisy air con units and pigeons made it impossible to sleep beyond 6am. The bathroom had mould around the bath. A completely ineffective shower curtain which allowed the whole bathroom to be flooded when I showered. No slip mat for bath. No plugs. Step up to bathroom not marked. Thin, worn out towels. No safe for valuables. Absolutely no resemblance to the photos on the website!! I did complain but got no reaction. I was only offered a room change when I left. Would not recommend hotel or stay there again. One night was more than enough.
They advertise and show photos only of the restaurant and not of the other parts, but inside rooms the bathroom tiles are cracked no plugs in bath basin has just a hole for a drain with no grill or plug, where one can just drop their expensive ring in which will vanish into the sewerage, the lift it tichy and outside is in need of a facelift and paint Job is crumbling the hotel is crumbling around itself.
On the positive side: 1. The location is good. Central, next to "Ladadika", for an easy 2-minutes distance from nightlife. 2. Decent beds/mattresses from coco-mat. Although I have to say both our beds were tilting... 3. An acceptable breakfast buffet (big variety sub-par quality) 4. Okay prices BUT: The place is really worn down (see photos). As we entered our 4th floor rooms an appalling odour of old pipes and sewage drains hit us. The walls were discoloured with stains from humidity. You have to be very brave to step out on the balcony, which seems ready to fall off. The entrance/lobby is narrow, utterly depressing and you when a group arrives, you cannot go through unless you push your way violently through the crowd. The service depends on the employees' mood, ranging from friendly to rude. The toilets didn't flush properly and the showers were marginally acceptable (having served in the military helps overcome the "hygienically challenging" conditions and actually decide to take a shower). Would we stay again? Well, I'd rather stay than spend the night in the street, but it would most likely be one of my last choices for the city centre.
Very central, Conversation area on the 1st floor Abundant continental breakfast with a real espresso coffee if needed and also rich of jams and cakes but also of fresh yogurt and savoury dishes. Bedrooms not the last hype of furniture but clean and quite comfortable Being in march the heating was on not too warm fine for me. Very helpful and kind reception staff All in all to be recommended. One only spot , main gate a but anonymous, sometimes we missed it!
I came here on a friends recommendation only to be disappointed. *Hello smoking* Specifically, they allow smoking in the rooms (and if not, they don’t do anything about it). I would feel the smoke every time someone was smoking on the floor. Opening the window did almost nothing - we only had one in the corner and the smoke would still have to go through us. When we asked for the possibility of a room change (for reasons of bathroom circumstances), I refused on the basis of the guests that had just checked out had left cigarette butts and the smoke could still be smelled in the bathroom. No, thank you. #thirdhandsmokers *Breakfast* The breakfast buffet is definitely rich - but the quality and freshness of some items (like delicatessen) is questionable. Best to lead with the egg choices (omelette in oven, scrambled eggs with olive oil, fried egg, boiled egg) and with the fresh fruit if available. The bugatsa is too sweet - and in general the cakes are very syrupy. Spinach pie is just weird - you can have a lot better ones at any other bakery nearby. *Coco-mat* Their mattresses and pillows are meant to be coco-Mat, an eco friendly solution that also promises comfort. They claim to be experts, but when asked they didn’t know that it actually contained goose feathers (found it later on on their website) and that it’s not really hypoallergenic. Overall, I don’t feel comfortable with the price for the service that’s offered. I do have to say though, the cleaning ladies and most of the staff are very welcoming and friendly.
-Located in center of the town, 2-3 minutes walking distances from all attractions. -Outdated hotel, beed much investments, hard beds. Cleaning a lot to be desired. -Asked for two double bed rooms, when checked in found out we wwre given two twin rooms. They changed the rooms tommorow, and moved us in doible bed rooms. Twin rooms were disastwr, with beds very small, very small rooms and bathrooms, and cigarette smelling. Double rooms were bigger, and beds were more confoetable. -Great breakfast, literally everytbing you'd wish for great start of the day. 5/5 for the breakfast. -No lobby at all, just a small reception at very small and narrow entry.
This is a nice friendly hotel. All the staff are very pleasant and helpful. The hotel is well situated for visiting the sights and within a stone's throw from the wonderful waterfront, which itself is quite impressive. It is also near enough to walk to the restaurants and bars in Ladadika. If you don't have the stamina to walk up to Ano Poli then Bus 23, just round the corner from the hotel, will get you there!
Quite honestly, chose the place on price and location but we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room, the comfort of the bed and furnishings generally and, especially, by the lovely breakfast in a delightful restaurant. There is also a "salon" on the first floor that looked very welcoming with its comfortable chairs and huge TV. Our room looked over Tsimiskis and was on the second floor but really had no problem at all with sleeping...double-glazing and heavy curtains seem to do their job. Maybe the bathroom could have been modernised somewhat but it was clean and everything worked! We had no problem finding the parking (after dropping off wife and cases!) which is quite nearby and reasonably priced for hotel guests. All in all, recommended highly.
This hotel"s location is really great.We walked to many of the city attractions and enjoyed especially the port,the promanade near the sea and the main square and markets.The hotel is pleasant but in a very simple way.It is very basic but the staff are very nice and ready to help.Breakfast was good and the dinning room was lovely.The price was good especially when we stayed there and it was difficult to get a room.I was surprised that there was not even a single seat in the "lobby";although it was small,but a bench would have been designed somewere.The room was on the small size,and so was the t.v,I missed having an armchair so when you are in the room one can sit and not lie in bed.To sum up a very positive stay in apleasant hotel.
We were so happy to find this delightful and very reasonably priced hotel! The location is ideal, an easy walk to the bay, sightseeing around Aristotelous Square and restaurants in Ladadika. Rooms were comfortable with balconies, but a/c is not too cool. Breakfast is the best I have ever seen- an incredible array of treats, plus smoothies and coffee to order. Staff were courteous and helpful, Lia at the desk with tours and recipes and Rita with her big smile at breakfast, plus all the others who helped make our stay so memorable.
