We spent a long-awaited weekend at the Aristoteles Hotel in Halkidiki, Greece. A request for clean towels was ignored, although we waited in the room for the towels for 3 hours. The room was not cleaned or made up, nor was the garbage removed. Then we were told we had to change to "an apartment, with no extra charge" due to an administrative mistake. After a further waste of time we were sent to the room, which in fact was a smaller, older, shabbier version of the first room. The t.v. was not working properly, giving a jumpy, hazy image, and had only 4 channels, all in Greek. The second bedroom was a dark, dingy dungeon with twin beds, no chair and only one bedside table and reading lamp. There was no cupboard or drawer space for clothes. In the main room there were three clothes hangers in the cupboard and the reading lamps had such weak bulbs that it was impossible to read. The bathroom had a filthy, stained, shabby shower curtain, and there was a large rusty crack in the tub, as well as a big rusty patch and rust marks around the drainage outlet. In the room there was a faded, worn armchair and one of the other chairs was falling apart and unsafe to use. Our second day started with a breakfast served by a most surly man. There was no "rich buffet breakfast" as advertised. His selection of two items was dumped on our table - no cereals, fruit, juices, yogurt, croissants, breadrolls, sausages, etc. My fried eggs were watery and runny - inedible, and the tepid coffee was served in a small jug, along with icy, chilled milk. By no means is this a four-star hotel!
