I just left this hotel .. even though my booking was non refundable. I preferred to leave than stay in this horrid place. Perhaps first is to ask how it possible got the rating of a 4* "boutique" hotel.. it's a 2* hostel at best.
Lumpy mattresses, hard pillows, tiny rooms, no wifi, small windows, (changed two rooms) and in both showers didn't work nor did the drain. When I asked for another change - the unfriendly, unprofessional staff suggested I change hotels .. and then got a bogus (Greek) booking.com customer service to call me and tell me that he is there to protect me from the hotel "throwing me out into the street."
The area is not "hip" as advertised. It's more of rundown area where local Greeks will tell you to take care at night.
If you are looking for a 4* hotel then this definitely is not the place for you. Steer clear and far - pay a bit more and go to real hotel. There are no facilities, absolutely nothing that would qualify this hotel more than a 2* hostel.
