“A welcoming, friendly and nice hotel!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

Astir Notos is a quiet and small hotel located somewhere in the outskirts of Potos village or better said at a reasonable close distance from the main street, in the vicinity of other small resorts that are all immersed in an olive garden.
The hotel impress by the kindness of its stuff and their interest of providing the best possible service accompanied by a welcoming smile every time when they are interfering with their guests. From the moment you’re entering the reception and until your departure you’ll be accompanied by professional advices about spending your time in the island and the best recommendations about the things that is worth to be seen there.
The rooms are not very big but spotlessly clean and the only things that maybe can be commented about are:
- the beds which are pretty small if comparing to the standards of other four star hotels;
- the wi-fi which is functioning only in the lobby.
Even if the hotel is not situated immediately across the sea and there’s no direct access to it, its main advantage is the quietness provided comparing with the bustle from the main street of the village. The usual package that the hovel provides it’s the half-board with tasty and varied dishes both for breakfast and dinner.
If staying in Potos, Astir Notos is the best option!

Just back from a week at this lovely small hotel, only wishing we could have stayed for longer.
The rooms are modern, the pool area lovely, the food plentiful, well cooked and varied, We were there for a week with different choice of mains each night. Although all these things are great, it is the Staff who make this hotel such a pleasure to stay at. Sofia, Anastasia and Effie are really warm, welcoming, and just a pleasure to holiday with. I think it is a measure of the quality of the Astir Notos that we met such lovely fellow guests there! Thank you again to all the Staff, Manager included. The surprise birthday cake for my husband was delicious! Hope we can stay again.!

My fiance and I visited the Astir Notos hotel in May 2013, right at the beginning of the holiday season so found the resort very quiet and peaceful - just what we were looking for! The hotel is small and quiet making it a great spot for relaxing. The staff were all friendly and helpful, service was always top notch. The food in particular was excellent - always plenty of variety and a chance to sample genuinely local cuisine.

The pool area is quite small, but we never had a problem getting a sun lounger and the pool itself is big and deep. The local town of Potos is a short walk away and worth a visit. We had lunch in a different restaurant every day and food the food to be good quality. It was a bit more expensive than we were expecting - not dissimilar to prices back here in London, but very large portions. We didn't spend any time on the beach because we were happy back at the pool, but there were plenty of loungers which were available for free if you ordered a drink from one of the bars along the beach.

The ferry trip to Thassos is an added bonus and a nice way to arrive.

This is a small 4 star hotel, run by a family. It is a very coquette hotel.The only problem si that I would never recommend it to family with children, especially with small children. The only place for the kids to run and play is around the pool.They have a playground inside, but this is just a room with some broken toys. In rest, the hotel is wonderful. Very well situated, close to the center of the resort and close to the beach, unfortunatelly the resort and the beach are not beautiful, so you should consider a car if you want to see nice places in Thassos.The staff is wonderful, they all speak English and they are very nice and willing to help you.Thank you APOSTOLOS, Efi, Sofia and Anastasia. It is really a 4 star hotel and the food is quite good, taking into account that it is a buffet.The fact that they offer half board is very good, otherwise food and drink in Thassos is very expensive.For those with children I would recommend House Elsa, which belongs to this hotel. It is 300 m from the hotel, it is cheaper and you can use the restaurant and the pool from Astir Notos. Please change the pillows! They are small and hard!

I have been to quite a few hotels in Greece and this is the most disappointing by far. It's in the middle of nowhere and the dinner hours are surprising for Greece: 6.30 to 9 pm! Works great if you like going to bed early, or the alternative is what they call "entertainment" here, namely poor live performance of otherwise good Sinatra songs. Taking a shower is an unique experience: the water changes from tap cold to boiling hot as it pleases and you can't establish any control over its temperature. And they seem very keen to charge extra for anything they could think about: using a pool towel is a good example. Instead of staying for the 6 nights we had booked, we could not bear more than 2 and moved to a more relaxing place, although it cost us more than 250 euros in cancellation fees. I wouldn't say we were happy to pay that, but we were most definitely relieved to get out of the place! What a mistake it was to rely on the rating we saw on booking.com!! To be fair to the hotel, it's probably a decent 2-star, but very VERY far from what you normally get in a 4-star one in Greece.

astirnotos, Front Office Manager at Astir Notos Hotel, responded to this review, 2 August 2013
We are very sorry to read this review for our place , and still wonder how people can become offensive , trying to get out in the internet and take revenge just because they were charged some CANCELLATION FEES . This guest made a reservation for 6 nights , stayed 2 nights without expressing any complaint in our reception desk or service sector . The end of the 2nd day they informed RECEPTION that they should depart the next day because they face some problems with their work. Our RECEPTION following exactly the terms under which the reservation is made through booking.com informed the guests that they should pay the cancellation fees equal to 238.5 euros. This was in their reservation factsheet so the guests couldnt doubt for that at all. From that point and then , the behaviour of the guest (lady) changed thoroughly , all her friendliness disappeared as she was hardly speaking to any of our staff. We truly believe that in case NO CANCELLATIONS FEES were charged the lady would still be happy as she was the first 2 days in which she passed a lot of time in the bar & restaurant of our hotel. At least , we hope that this guest is proud that after 6 years of successful operation and hundreds of positive reviews and ratings in all the appropriate websites , she was the first person that gave us a " terrible review" . About our dinner time she referred to , we can just say that in all the 4* places in the area the dinner hours are similar and end round 9pm. If somebody is used to have dinner from 21:00-23:00 or even later , there are many tavernas in the region that can satisfy this custom. About the MUSIC night we organised we can only say that it is optional for somebody to attend , there is no entrance fee and is organised after the wish of the majority of our guests. Somebody that does not like this type of music or this band has also the possibility to go to the town center and not attend. Finally , to the statement that our hotel is in the middle of nowhere we have to declare that actually our position is our big advantage as it is the only 4* hotel in the region which is only 3min walk from the center and 250m from the beach. As the end of this statement , we have to propose to the guest that the next time they perform a reservation through booking.com or any other organisation or directly with a hotel , they should be carefully read their reservation terms which are clearly settled on their reservation form. Otherwise , they will again be surprised by a bad hotel with bad staff like us that simply tried to apply the reservation policy ! ZACHAROPOULOS APOSTOLOS - ASTIR NOTOS HOTEL - OPERATIONAL MANAGER

From the moment we arrived at the Astir Notos ( southern star ) hotel I knew we had made the right choice. A family run hotel we were warmly greeted on arrival and soon settled into a very relaxed and chilled out week in the sun. The hotel is spotlessly clean ( really really clean) and great credit has to go to the two ladies who work tirelessly to keep things sparkling. The food and ambience of the dining room was excellent and there was always something there to cater for everyone's needs. Anastasia, Effie, Sofia were always on hands to help with our needs in the dining area, the pool bar with a smile on their face. The hotel is in a peaceful setting and is a short walking distance for the beach and Potos - I would recommend you get out and visit these areas which are within short walking distance to the hotel. Room 105 was excellent in every way, good quality bed and the balcony caught the late afternoon sun which rounded our day off before dinner.

The trip on the ferry to and from the mainland to Thassos was an added bonus in our view - something different to what we have experienced from other holidays.

The hotel is a must return for us - a real gem of a place - not to be missed

Room Tip: Rooms are spacious and well equipped but if you like a bit of extra sun early morning or late evenin...

We booked this hotel as a package holiday with Thomson, transfer was very well organised and the rep Anne was always nice and helpful.
The hotel is ideally located in a quiet area of Potos. (Walk across the car park by following the path and you are in town in two minutes. Or go to the main road, turn right and you are in town within a few minutes, and/or cross over and on the left you will find a path which will take you to the beach)
The hotel has a relaxed atmosphere and we found the pool area to be nice and enjoyable. We were very satisfied about the cleanliness of our room, all areas of the hotel were kept cleaned. Our room was comfortable and modern. The hotel is small, spacious and modern- and not a "little Britain" therefore do not expect a bingo night, which was fantastic! The staff (mainly the ladies at meal time) were helpful and friendly.
The hotel has a spacious fitness area ( fairly adequate). The price of drinks is expensive with a family (e.g. 2 euros for a bottle of 1L water - 80p for 2L in town) and we were fairly satisfied with the quality of the meals (I would not say, in my opinion, that the food is the strength of this hotel but the selection was good)
Overall a great holiday, a nice hotel, a beautiful part of Greece, good place to enjoy with a family, good services at the hotel and from Thomson.
