“very nice hotel but expensive during the high season”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2009

This is a nice business hotel in the center of patra. The night auditor was not so friendly,
The period that we visit it was too noisy but the staff give us the option with a back side room. The rooms are nice decorated.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2008

The hotel is centraly situated opposite the main harbour entrance and railway station, on the most frequented pedestrian street of Patras.
It is fully renovated with very modern and good quality furniture.
The reception area is very small, on the 1st floor there is a small lobby with the dining room, but there's not much to do there.
The rooms are rather standard length and narrow, but are confortable. There is an LCD TV, Fridge and automatic temperature control of the room. Beds are confortable, and very clean. But the room is fully covered with materials, carpets, bed linen and is very hot. In late October in sunny days we had to use the air conditioning in cool setting all night without blankets to feel confortable. In mid-November there was neither need for air continioning/heating nor for blankets.
The room also has free wi-fi access to the internet, ask for the WEP password at the reception.
Also beware! the street downstairs is full of cafes and gets extremely noisy all day from 9 till 3 o'clock after midnight, so the door on the balcony must be always shut, especialy during the summer months. Room view is not bad, facing the crowded street and the port.
Breakfast is served in the dining room, in a small buffet. There are the usual eggs, cheese, ham and bacon, jams etc. but the quality of the ingredients is very low. It seems that the food is bought from a discount supermarket and is of the cheapest quality. The served cake has a fully industrialized taste, plenty of conservatives. Coffee (only french = filtered, greek or espresso is extra) is also of bad quality.
The stuff is polite, yet very discrete, almost inexistant, which is good for a hotel with so little common space available. As the hotel is about 30 meters from the car street, you will need to roll your luggage to the pavement, or ask for a trolley at the reception.
Parking around the hotel is almost impossible on shop hours, during these hours is paid with a max duration of 2 hours, so if you have a car you must stop (in a non stopping zone, but it is ok) to unload the luggage then park it long away the paid parking zone and leave it there. But all of Patras shops are just by the corner of the hotel.
Overall a convenient stay in a clean and central hotel, recommended for business visitors.

  • Liked — Modern clean rooms, centrally located.
  • Disliked — Noisy central location, low quality brakfast
