We stayed at this hotel on two separate occasions in September 2012, one stay of 4 nights and the other of 3 nights, in different rooms. During our first stay, we were not over impressed with the room which had a very small bathroom and small balcony. The bathroom was so small that when using the loo I had to have my feet in the shower tray ! When having a shower, the water went everywhere as the shower curtains were inadequate. During our second stay we had a much nicer room with a larger bathroom and a decent sized balcony. So beware, not all rooms are the same and if possible ask to see the room first.
The public areas are spacious and the buffet breakfast typically Greek and more than adequate. The big surprise is the large swimming pool and pool area with sunloungers and its own bar, unusual for a budget hotel of this size.
Thira is within walking distance for the reasonably fit. Otherwise there is a bus stop very close to the hotel.
In summary, a clean,basic hotel and a good choice if you wish to keep a little distance between yourselves and the hordes of cruise passengers that decend every day on Thira.
