The four stars given to this hotel do not originate from the hotel, but the agencies collecting hotel reservations on behalf of the hotel. The Greek classification is also different than the International hotel classification system. It really should be defined as a hostel with perhaps two stars.
Its merits lie with the beautiful old building, its location in the midst of the old town, next to the church and the charming people running it. We completely agree with that people with movement disabilities and families with small children should look elsewhere. The route from the town centre has many steps, even if the distance is just a few hundred meters. There are tree stories, a steep staircase and there is no elevator, because of building limitations. Even if my wife and I are senior citizens, we adjusted surprisingly well to climb up and down the stairs several times a day. There is no service except some morning hours. Therefore you really should announce your arrival in advance so that there is somebody at the door opening up and helping with the luggage.
We fully enjoyed our 10 day stay in the two room suite, with a balcony having a beautiful view over the town. Parking is difficult, but we always found some space on the extension of Omirou up the hill, passing the hotel. We spent a lot of time on the beach of Galissas, which found to be the best on the island, beach services included.
Some earlier comments suggested the rooms to be dirty and bathrooms awful. It makes us wonder, did we actually stay at the same hotel? All our special wishes were rapidly addressed and even the breakfast was tailored to our liking, thanks Chris and Marisina.
