We chose this hotel many months ahead of our wedding anniversary holiday. We booked and confirmed by email and phone to avoid confusion and looked forward to use of the hotel's suite as the last piece in the travel jigsaw. It didn't happen. The reception clerk spoke great English, but only to say 'ah yes. The suite. It is already taken. But you can have the room over there,' bear in mind the suite occupied the whole top floor with a big balcony overlooking the harbour. The room he offered us was just above a busy bar, shoebox sized, and had no balcony! It took only a few seconds to decide it wasn't for us, and all we got was a shrug of the shoulders and a resigned, been there bore look from the reception clerk. So at 11 at night we had nowhere to stay. DON'T GET CAUGHT LIKE THIS YOURSELVES, avoid the Manessi. Thankfully the people in the bar and travel agency below the hotel saved our day by getting us a room at what turned out to be a fantastic hotel, the POROS IMAGE, which we WOULD recommend.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Manessi, after a complete renovation re-opened again in March 2008. It's a wonderful neoclassic building in the port of Poros. From the balcony of your room, you will greatly enjoy the sun setting to the armful of "Kimomeni" (the mountain looking like a sleeping woman). The 13 totally new rooms and it's suite cover all the needs and offer all modern facilities. ... more less
