I stayed in this hotel for business purposes. Although not located directly downtown, (which may not be seen as a plus for visiting tourists,) the hotel was within easy walking distance, with most places taking only 5-15 minutes. The rooms were fairly modern, however were exceptionally cleaned daily by cheerful chamber maids who always greated me. Breakfasts are a continental style with ample coffees, teas, sweets and included eggs, bacon and sausage. Greece's famous yogurt could be had each morning! What stood this hotel apart from most was the exceptional staff. The staff are mostly young but highly knowledgeable and very warm and friendly. The made a point to know me by my first name and made me feel very welcome. Staff with only moments notice, were able to locate a watch repair shop just off their memory recall alone with easy directions provided. The shop was located ten minutes away by walking and my watch was repaired while I waited - free of charge too! Staff were keen on assisting with planning my running routes for my daily fitness routine, encouraging me often with a few friendly comments each day. Laundry can be sent for dry cleaning at a premium on site, yet staff were able to recommend laundry services nearby for my extended stay. Room changes were easily made and accomodated by their staff in order to locate me closer to my work colleagues. Great service makes for a great stay and I know they would likely remember me by name next business trip. Over all, a very good hotel if you're looking to rest and relax after a long work day, but close enough to downtown to take in the city's evening charm.
