“Old-world hotel charm in need of a little varnish”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

The Astir must once have been quite something. Everything in the hotel speaks of grandeur and lavishness. Just a pity that this hotel has clearly seen better days and although everything is neat and clean, there's evidence of this hotel's need of maintenance and refurbishment everywhere you look. Still, spectacular view of the harbour and proximity to the bustle of the town centre helps to make it a pleasant stay. Rather opt for a breakfast in town though, as the one the hotel serves is overpriced and quite lacking.

This is our second stay here, on our long drive back to the UK. Some may think this Hotel needs upgrading but it is a very Grand Hotel spacious and luxurious in some respects, large bedrooms I think bedroom furniture could do with updating maybe new TV's flat screen, I love the bathrooms. We didn't eat at the hotel this time but they do have a great restaurant on the roof with great views out to the gulf of Corinth, very helpful friendly staff! I would try and get a room on a higher floor as the hotel is on a very busy road..

We had a large and well equipped room in the 6th floor, therefore relatively quiet. As our car was completely full, we ordered in advance a place in the garage (which was offered!); but the garage door was broken, and the hotel did not write us a mail before. The telephone in the room was out of order, therefore we had no contact with the reception; the door of the room could not be closed quietly, there was only one electric socket in the room, non in the bathroom, air-condition loud and not reducible.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the 6th floor with the very nice mountain view (therefore cheaper!)

A really well decorated but old building...objects in the rooms are antiques too,not in a bad meaning...Stayed there for a night,in a really great price for what it offers...Clean rooms and a damn awesome view if you stay in on the sea-front rooms...Best part is the roof garden on the 7th floor,the view is stunning,the swimming pool up there does so...

Room Tip: Choose a room with sea-view!

We stayed here for 1 night in August. If you are looking for a value for money hotel in the centre of Patras then the Astir is for you.The roof garden is very good and the staff very friendly and the prices are very good.

The place is located close to downtown, of the Patras. Right opposite to rail station and close to bus station. In safe area.
Value for money for lodging, nice breakfast. The prices for all day meals are rather cheap for a 4 star hotel.
The hotel may be 4-star, I would rate European 3-star.
