We stayed at Hotel Rena for 5 days with family and friends. The rooms were a comfortable size, not too squashy. The bathroom was old looking and definitely need a makeover.
Using the shower caused water to go everywhere, flooding the bathroom.
Kitchen equipment was almost non existent. Hardy enough to claim it is self catering. Crockery was minimal as was cutlery. No sponge or kitchen towel provided.
Refrigerator was tiny and extremely noisy. We complained about the noise and were told it would be looked at/or replaced. Nothing was done about the fridge. It was extremely loud and annoying and caused us to stay awake at night. This was mentioned to the owner several times in person, by phone, and I even sent him an email. Each time I was told there's nothing wrong with the fridge.
On a brighter note Hotel Rena was close to everything. Bus services to everywhere were within walking distance, as were shops, restaurants and the beach.
Breakfast was ok. Could have had more variety. There was the option of walking to Marios restaurant and having breakfast there with no extra charge. We took this option on one of our days and were not disappointed.
Rooms were serviced daily which was a bonus.
Mama Rena was lovely and welcoming. Vassili at the bar was great to chat to and always answered our travel related questions. Nothing was too much trouble for him. He is a credit to Hotel Rena and a genuine all round nice person.
During our stay we lost our ferry tickets for our ongoing travel to Rhodos. These tickets are non replaceable, but the owner quickly swung into action and made contact with several people and our tickets were found and returned to us.
We also forgot our phone on the bus and Vassili helped us to contact the bus driver to see if it was handed in.
