The hotel is situated near the beach and the bridge and has a fine view of the sea. It has two swimming pools and a tennis court and of course the Casino. A sense of abandonment is present from the dead palm trees with their hanging dry branches to the rooms where we found the leftovers of the previous occupant... More

Nicely situated right on the beach, very close to the city of Patras. Wonderful view of the bridge. Rooms however need renovation. Very good breakfast. The only problem is the parking since you have to leave the car quite far from the entrance.

Stayed in the hotel for the New Year. We were not expecting the 5 star experience but we wanted something nice for our stay. However, despite numerous complaints, the heat in the room was very low and it was quite cold. In addition, we couldn't believe in this day and age, so-called 4 star hotels still have 14-inch old TV.... More

We went for a weekend to celebrate a wedding in Patras. The hotel is clean while the rooms have a thick carpet that you cannot say how clean it is. The bathroom in the room we were could have been refreshed. While the lobby looks very modern, the furniture in the rooms is pretty old. The breakfast buffet was simple... More

I went for a romantic weekend with my girlfriend and we booked a junior suite. Junior suite they mean just an extra small room which was a study. No idea what purpose this kind of interior design/use services. Therefore the junior suite is just a ordinary room. The bed was all right and the room had a very good view... More

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
