“This is not a 4* Hotel”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

When arrived late night, the first impression is unfriendly hard to talk to reception staff! The room was decent but the quality of bed was very poor, we woke up with back pains! The breakfast was simple with unfriendly staff again. In general I don't recommend this hotel.

I stayed with my brother here for a short break the end of March/beginning of April 2014. I would recommend the hotel for the brilliant location across the road from the beach and within a short distance to lots of shops and restaurants and a beautiful square. One of the receptionist staff was very nice, Rosa, and she went the extra mile to ensure we had a good time. Upon arrival, Rosa gave us a free upgrade to a sea view room because the hotel wasn't very busy at this time of the year. The restaurant at the hotel was nice but the one dinner we had there comprised of starters that didn't fit the description on the menu! (This also happened when we ate out at a different restaurant one night, both of our main courses were not as described on the menu!!) The rooms were similar in quality to other 4*hotels I have been to in recent years so no complaints there. My brother and I got a real bargain booking with Easyjet for this short break but ended up paying a lot for meals out and taxis. Do watch out for being over charged by the taxi drivers. We were ripped off!!! If I ever visit the island again then I will ask for all taxi journeys to go on a meter!!

Room Tip: Sea view is what you ideally want!

Stayed for just a night there, after deciding to prolong my holidays for one more day! The hotel is peacefully located in just a few minutes from the center. Rooms were tidy and clean and the decoration was really nice. All in all a worthwhile choice. I would stay again if I visit the city of Zakinthos in the future!

We stayed here for 4 nights and I have no complain about this hotel. Wide and clean rooms, comforable beds, bathroom and room with everything you need, a balcony. Quality and price are ok, and you have all services there if you ask in reception. As a example we had a car rental booking just 30 minutes after requesting it.

Upon arriving, check-in seemed okay. The receptionist wasn't overly enthused to help, however was polite. We chose the adjoining rooms & proceeded up the elevator with our luggage, with no assistance offered.
Firstly, the rooms were tiny, almost claustrophobic, extremely dark & dingy, with little to no natural light. The balconies could barely fit one person & were uncomfortably close to each other.
The bathroom floor appeared to have not been properly cleaned, as various sizes of hair were present in both bathrooms. Along with this, the bathroom AND the room smelt horrible, almost to the point of vomit.
Worst of all, apart from no variety at breakfast, one of the wait staff was handling food (specifically, cheese and cold meats) with her bare hands. No gloves or utensils, just her bare hands which may or may not have been washed.
Overall, a ridiculously unpleasant experience and a major rip off. When you are paying 95 euros a night, you expect some level of quality and professionalism. These people have no sense of cleanliness or pride in their establishment. Would not recommend this hotel to my worst enemy.

Room Tip: Do not stay here

It's important to keep ones expectations in check when booking island hotels under 150 / night.

Location, room size, cleanliness and service all very good value.

I will stay there again when in Zakinthos

Everything was perfect....the rooms, the reception area, the staff, the view to the sea, the wifi, the dining area, the food. Everything was clean. There is a public beach right behind the hotel. The water was very clean and the beach very organised with sunbeds and snak bar. We booked a trip to the Shipwreck and we also rent a car through the reception. Thanks everybody for a lovely time in Zakynthos. We will be back at Palatino for sure!!!!
