How to describe this 'hotel'?!? Firstly, on getting there our room was invested with bugs, when i said this was not acceptable she told me because i chose the cheaper room (actually it was because i didn't upgrade to a room with a balcony) that i should expect bugs and there was nothing she could do about it. I further complained about the infestation and she told me she would get the cleaners in there to do something about it immediately. In this hotel, immediately means 6 hours later when you remind them again to do something. In fact a cleaner didn't come, she came with a can of bug spray, sprayed down the room and then took the spray with her. the room stunk after that and we had to leave as the fumes were so bad.
The pool was fine and it seemed to be well taken care of. We decided we would give the place a second chance and ate as the hotel restaurant one night well the food was horrible compared to other meals we had in the city and the price was the same. Stale bread, overcooked meats etc. It was obvious they do not have much turnover in the place to keep the food fresh.
I decided to have the breakfast a couple of times there, they do not replenish the vegetables and other choices at the table and most of the time you were stuck with whatever noone else wanted.
As this is a hotel APARTMENT we had a kitchen, fridge etc in our room. When one of the hotel owners saw that i was purchasing food and drinks from the grocery store not 100 meters away she commented that i was too cheap to buy from the hotel bar.
There were a couple of sons working there, they were great, it was the old fat man who i guess owns the place and the wife or older woman whom works with him that were the main problems with respect to something greeks never have heard of 'customer service'.
Another saving grace of the hotel is that it is visited primarily by scandinavians who i guess do not complain when their rooms are infested with bugs and other things go wrong. I am canadian and i dont tolerate this as we have paid for a hotel room and expect a certain minimum standard, if i wanted to sleep with bugs i would have just slept outside.
Further more apparently Canada and USA are the same country to these people as she kept referring to how things are not the same there as they are in the USA even though i had told her i was from Canada several times and she even took my passport the first time. I guess greece and turkey are the same country too!
thankfully we were not at the hotel most of the time, but on speaking with other guests they all reported similar experiences with the staff at the hotel. you can always email me at newton 4 all at hot mail dot com if you want to ask me any questions or learn more about my experience there. I WOULD DEFINTELY NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL TO ANYONE.
