“My room did not look like the picture at all”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Stayed here overnight between arriving on the ferry and going to the airport. Oops.

The pillows sticking out from the pillowcases were yellow with age (and grime?), the bed was like a rock with springs sticking out of it, and I actually, for the first time, feared that I would get bed bugs from a hotel.

Very noisy, seemed like nothing is between you and the strip club and very busy street even though I was located near the back of the hotel. I love good a/c in a room, but I was freezing and there was no way to adjust the temperature. While the price seems reasonable, the rooms are worth 1/2 of what they are charging.

Woman at the desk was nice and professional, but the night desk clerk (a man) seemed like everything you asked him was burdensome and impossible to resolve (big sighs, etc.).

The only thing that gladdened me was that I was only there for 7 hours. I strongly recommend you find somewhere else.

Room Tip: Don't go.

The hotel smells of mold. The beds were awful, sheets had not been changed, floor not vaumned. Front desk had a "don't bother me" attitude. Before breakfast hours coffee I was told come back later when we are open. On the highway, not the beach. Other guests in lobby were upset that the hotel was overbooked and would not honor their reservation. Just awful.

Although i stayed there like for 4 hours only. The hotel impressed me. Really nice room, clean, friendly staff and the bus stop to the airport was at a 2 minute distance. Love it! Would stay there again. Too bad couldn't see the ocean and use their pool. :(

This is a small friendly hotel ( 30 rooms) , rooms very clean , staff very friendly & helpful, the balcony windows are double doors , which are required, due to the busy main road at the front of the hotel , the beds are firm , safety deposit box is free as is the air conditioning , beach/pool towels are also available free of charge upon request , the breakfast is ok , but no normal (english) tea available, and the coffee was not up to much, we stayed for 2 weeks as a base to explore athens , good bus and tram services nearby , overall good value for the money.

Room Tip: choose a high level (4-5) room at the rear of the hotel for less external noise

It was the second time I unfortunately booked this hotel.the first time I arrived on my own past September and after a long trip they told me that they were overbooked and I had to be transferred in another hotel -lower category still I paid the same money. second time I arrived with my husband after a two day trip from LA to Athens and when we came they had turned the heater off and even after one hour we had called the reception there was still no hot water. Worst experience for the past 9 years I travel not nearly a four star hotel!

It is a very nice place, very helpful staff, good location very clean, although there is obviously a beach bar on the other side of the street so during the night it is a bit louder.
However I really enjoyed the stay and would love to visit again

Pleasant, clean, good value for the money. On-line searches suggest that the hotel is near the airport. It is NOT near the new (current) airport and is a 45 minute (minimal traffic) bus ride from the airport.
