This hotel looks great on all the booking websites and indeed money has been spent on lobby, bar and pool area as seen in the photos. Its in a great location - right next to the entrance to the Old Town and by the port - you can see ferries from the balcony. The rooms were a good size. separate kitchen, lounge with sofa beds and a double bedroom with a double balcony. My main criticism is the state of the rooms - in dire need of updating. When we got there we were given a room with a manky bathroom and stains all over the place. I went to see the receptionist and we got moved the next day to a better room overlooking the harbour as well.
Once I had made my dissatisfaction clear, the staff were very friendly and keen to please. However, it soured our 3 days a bit.
Another tip, please avoid the restaurants in the old town that have rooftop restaurants - the one with a parrot (New Town?) is a rip off and tried to charge us 115 euros for 2 kids meals, a pizza and skewer. Tried to charge us 10 euros for water, 10 for bread and 10 for tsatsiki. Please ensure you do not order anything without knowing the price. I got it reduced to 60 euros but only after a shouting match. Try and go to the smaller restaurants around the little streets - much better
