Me and my wife stayed here in sept 14, the hotel is in a great location, near everything , good little beach nearby, but would recommend a 20 min walk along the coast road to almyros beach , lovely, plus walk a few hundred metres to the far end and dip in the icy stream going out to the sea,...

We have just returned from a week's stay at this hotel. Great location next to the beach and still in the centre of town. The hotel staff are exceptionally friendly and polite especially Petros in the restaurant - always smiling and friendly and Nicos, Vasilis and Andreas in the bar couldn't do enough to make our stay pleasant. The hotel... More

Wonderful hotel just 30 yards from the beach and harbour entrance yet in the middle of town. Other fussy people are faulting this hotel because of trivialities like 'no vodka' or 'stained shower curtain'. What a load of rubbish!, there's unlimited beer, wine and LOCAL spirits for 12 hours a day, superb service from the restaurant staff, bar-staff, cleaning ladies... More

Didn't start off too great as after getting to the hotel at 5.30am we were put into a tiny roomed hotel a couple of minutes walk away where we had to stay for two nights. Couldn't unpack... When we eventually got into our room we were a bit disappointed with the tiniest of balconies-you would have thought that they would... More

Room overlooks a noisy side road with dustcarts emptying bins at 5am! The room is small with a concrete pillar in the middle which you have to squeeze round! The room is dirty and shabby and the shower curtain is white tinged with orange dirt! The toilet doesn't flush so we won't go there! No hot water, air con is... More

This hotel is ok if you are not going to be in your hotel room much, the rooms are below basic, cheap cheap - it reminded of my first holiday when I was 18 and me and my friends stayed in a bog standard hotel but we were never in the room! Do not stay here with young children, it... More
