I'll try and cover everything about this place as fairly as possible:
This hotel stay will entirely depend on you as a person and what you want from your holiday.
If you like modern fittings and mod cons, stay clear, you won't enjoy it here. The place was built in the 70s and I don't think it's changed since.
Personally, I've got no problems with it. A hotel for me is a base for your trip and you sleep and wash there. The WIFI is free in case you need that and it works very well.
The rooms are basic rooms with two beds, wardrobe and a mirror, very typical across Greece. There is air con in the rooms @€5 a night. It worked perfectly for us. The 1st floor balconies are long and spacious looking on to road, not sure about poolside. The bathrooms are TERRIBLE, I'll hold nothing back here, they're TINY. Ridicuoulusly so. But the shower was good and toilet flushed etc.
The hotel in General is clean, well kept, staff are good, small restaurant to the front is basic and average food.
If you're staying b&b the food is as follows: bread cut too thick, jams, boiled eggs, cheese, meat and tomatoes. Basic cereal selections and the worst tasting coffee, tea and oj going. We nipped bakers down road most days for big croissants and a latte.
Despite the downsides the place is just what we needed for our trip and is as basic as most budget Greece accommodations and if that's what you're after then it's good, if you want some luxury then it's not.
Some reviews have been unfair IMO and I've tried to be as impartial as possible
