The photo's of the hotel look good and so I booked to stay here. The rooms are very clean and spacious and the bathroom is fairly clean along with the lobby and resturant area - the beds are very comfy. The reception staff are polite but not very helpful.

There are many nearby bars and cafes that are open... More

My husband and I originally booked a two night stay here and as soon as we entered the room I started crying! The room was completely outdated and it was dirty. The beds were hard as a rock and the blankets had holes in them. We immediately went out searching for a new hotel to stay in. We returned a... More

Comfortable rooms but next year we'll be asking for a room at the back of the building away from the throbbing music of the nearby bar which went on to the early hours of the morning......or maybe...

Stayed here en route to Sifnos, it is 5 mins from Syntagma and less than 10 to Monistiraki when travelling to Piraeus to catch a midmorning or later ferry. Breakfast was fine and the room we had, on the front, was enormous, almost a suite (family room I guess). Unfortunately there is a very noisy bar across the road -... More
