I cannot accept that as a full fare paying family of guests in this hotel we had to have our air conditioning frequently switched off remotely by the owner whose best attempt at an apology was that "it was very expensive to run". We visited Athens in the height of summer, only to wake up feeling hot and uncomfortable because the air-conditioning had been switched off by the owner in the early hours of the morning. Having to go down to reception and keep asking for the air conditioning to our room to be switched back on doesn't make for good hospitality.
