Myself and a colleague stayed here for 10 days during a business trip to the University of Patras. The hotel is within an easy 10 minute drive to the University, howvever the hotel advertises 'free wifi in all rooms' which isn't exactly the case. Yes the wifi is free, but the signal is very weak in the bedrooms to the... More

We travel through Patras frequently, and sometimes stop for the night. This little gem is a short walk from the sea, and fit our family's needs perfectly. The food is good, if you don't feel like going to town, and the staff friendly and accomodating. No one is in a rush, and a lot of helpful information about the area... More

First of all, the location is great! Despite the fact that it's not in the city centre it's next to beach! Now it works also the suburban railway connecting Patras with Rio and there is a stop nearby and it makes it much easier to move. The service and the people are great too! Very helpful and polite every moment... More

Where should i start. Ok, from the beginning. Arrived in Patras from the ferry, found a cab to take us to the hotel. The cabbies looked shady and one quoted me 20 euros... So I shopped around to another guy and he was Australian named Jonathon and he was so great!! He quoted me 15 and said he wouldn't charge... More

The rooms are really old and need rennovation.we used our RCI exchange to stay in the hotel and we... More

The hotel is in Rio, in a quiet location by the sea and with a magnificent view of the amazing Rio-Antirio bridge. It has large clean rooms, huge free car park, free wifi but the whole hotel has a diffuse feeling of decadence. The room decoration is very old-fashioned and the beds are hard and uncomfortable. Staff is polite and... More

I rate the hotel with 4 stars for the politeness of the personnel, the nice lobby and breakfast room, the view to the sea just outside the hotel and the nearby Rio bridge, the spacious enough rooms and the plenty space for parking. However I must stress that the rooms look old and some maintenance or renovation should be scheduled...... More

We had to be in Patras the last weekend in August 2012, and this was literally the only hotel we found available as we looked into it very last minute. I had read the reviews and was absolutely terrified that it would be an awful experience, but we booked it all the same as we just had to go to... More

this hotel has not been renovated in years and it's left to it's misery. No way you could describe it as a 4 star or even a 3 star hotel. The area of Patras does not have 4-5 star hotels, which is a problem.
