“Friendly, great views but noisy road”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2009

I stayed for 9 nights in these studios, the owner Yiannis picked me up from the Ferry - at no charge - the studio was reasonably spacious, the kitchen had a two ring burner and a kettle with a balcony overlooking the bay, which was fabulous. These studios form part of three buildings all under the same ownership and are definitely the most disadvataged of the 3. The main road in and out of Batsi is metres from your balcony and the traffic is non-stop, the buses hoot their horns everytime they go past due to the bad bend in the road. If you're used to sleeping in a quiet environment this is not the place for you. There is double glazing to the balcony doors but this means keeping the A/C on all the time.

At first glance the studios appear clean, but look harder and there is room for improvement. In the shower room teh plastic mat put down to prevent slipping on the tiles is filthy underneath. It hadn't been lifted and washed for months - possibly years, the lavatory brush was absolutely beyond description! The kitchen was a little tired and again needed a good clean.

The beach in the bay directly below the studios is very quiet there are no facilities there at all, and is not easy to get to if you are physically challenged. The other beaches in the nearby town of Batsi do have facilities for showers, sun beds. local bars etc. These are approx. a 20 minute walk from the studios, down a winding, and sometimes narrow road, which at night is hazardous and care should be taken.

The nearest barsor restaurants are a 10 minute walk away down the same road, other bars, restaurants, shops and a bank are further along the same road.

The people in the twon were friendly, the prices not bad in comparison to Mykonos and although touristy, there are no huge groups of teenagers roaming about.

Whilst the owner of the studios was friendly and helpful I would not stay there again due to the noisy road, haphazard cleaning and the road into the town, I would stay nearer to the main facilities and not risk the walk uphill at night!
