We visited the Library Hotel for our anniversary and chose the hotel because of it's high score on booking.com and the spectacular images listed. With thoughts of a luxury 5* spa retreat, we were quickly disappointed when shown our 'superior' double room. There was nothing superior about it. The floor rugs were dirty, the room itself was average and the A/C didn't work. The bathroom was nice but the towels and gowns were old, faded and hard and there was absolutely no hot water. Outside the pool was dirty and uncared for. The water level was below the whirlpool jets. There was only one member of staff when we arrived and the poor girl was juggling reception,porter and waitressing work all by herself. For a 'wellness retreat' there was minimal information about spa treatments and facilities. Considering the room was such a letdown we weren't prepared to spend €40+ on a massage that we half expected would be performed by the only staff member present. However, the atmosphere in the mountainous village of Kalovassos gave the hotel a tranquil, relaxing feel. The hotel restaurant served us a beautifully presented 3 course meal which, including drinks only cost 36€ for two of us. The food definitely improved our feelings toward the hotel. Overall though, with a bit more TLC the Library Hotel could easily be what it's made out to be online as right now the score of 9.0 is far from the truth.
