After been recommended the Pepi and reading reviews we thought we wold give them a go. The only problem is that all the reviewers and the people that recommended the place didn't stay in a room that overlooks the street. If you get rooms 7,8 or 9 be prepared for a pretty noisy night. The greeks aren't the quietest talkers and they dont seem to sleep at night either, all through the night they could be heard wandering along then some would stop right outside the building and have a long conversation. We also couldn't believe how much noise the ATM at the bank next door made either. We ended up having to find another place to stay as after 7 near sleepless nights we could not take anymore.
The studios themselves are fine for the money, a bit basic but then we weren't sold them as being 5 star. The gardens and pool are very nice and are a great place to relax. If we had had one of the rooms at the back of the complex my rating would have been higher as we may have had some sleep. According to the useless thomson rep we should have requested a quiet room on our booking, we didnt think we would need to when the brochure states that it is in a quiet part of the old town.
As far as recommending this place goes, if you can guarantee getting one of the back of the complex rooms and are on a budget then go for it. Otherwise go to the La Strada a few streets away.
