“short stopover in Samos”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2009

Female owner came to collect us and walk us to pension. She was pleasant enough. It was located up very very steep steps. Room was OK - nothing special. Beds were clean. Hot water in bathroom needs to be turned on half an hour before you need it. Make sure you know where switch is located when you check in, make sure it is switch for your accommodation and not another room. Had freezing cold shower that morning. Later I knocked on owners door to ask about turning on hot water. She must have been out but a man was behind the door. He didn't open the door to me just shouted out what did I want. I said I would like to know how to turn on the hot water. He just shouted back he would turn it on 30 minutes before I needed it. He wanted to know when did I need it. I said tomorrow at 8.00 am. He said he'd turn it on at 7.00. We came to the conclusion that he must have had leprosy and was well ugly. Charges were Euro 35 per night which was OK. Did have TV in bedroom. Would not recommend this place.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2008

Following our flight arrival at Pythagorion airport we took a taxi to Vathi that cost 20 euro. Vathi is a very exciting and vibrant town with some amazing beaches, architecture, and people.
On arrival we somehow stumbled over Pension Dreams (which is also rated in other Guide Books). After viewing a variety of rooms that we later found out were not available (not a practise i am use to) as they were prebooked, we negotiated a price with this rather loud and authoritive owner for 35 euro. The acommodation was small, had a very strange shower setup, but was sufficient to sleep in. We had initially planned to stay for several nights. This all changed when we experienced other odd events that ould be best described as 'Big Brother' who would monitor the use of air-conditioning and tap on the window to remind you to close the windows completly and inforce the rules. In Australia you would describe this as NQR. Following these experiences we were able to locate other accommodation for not much more however promoted the relaxed Greek lifstyle we were longing to experience and breakfast. Although we indepenently changed our accommodation in Vathi, ITSA Travel is a great place to start in the future with plenty of useful advise on where to stay and where not to stay. Unless management changes we are not in any rush to experience any more Pension Dreams.

  • Liked — The compulsary steps workout you endured to get to the facility from the main road
  • Disliked — Feeling like i was staying at my parents house, no offense mum and dad.
  • Stayed September 2008, travelled as a couple
