Very very nice place!! Very close to the sea and to main village Chora. The owner is very kind and attentive. the room is clean, spaciuos and pretty with a little terrace. Breakfast is spectacular, fresh fruit, honey and jam,greek yoghurt, toasted bread, cakes, and a lot of kindness. Great base for touring the island with a quad or scooter (but quad is preferable).
Highly recommended for everyone. you will not regret

This was a one-night-stop before travelling further on our boattrip. We met a "mother-like" woman who was so kind to us and made a breakfest like it was home at her house. The rooms had nothing to complain about, just clean and fresh. It is close to the harbour, just 50 metres and that is a good reason to stay here!

Basic and clean accomm, friendly landlord, conveniently located in the harbour. Bus to the town centre was nearby, as were the many steps up the hill if you wanted to walk. quite a few restaurants in the harbour if you didnt want to make the trek into town.
