“DECENT hotel.PERFECT location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Hotel is perfectly located near the sea. If you insist or just have a luck, your room terrace will overview beautiful port.
Since I had chance to spend five days in back room, and another five in front rooms, I can say that they are really clean, small but cozy and nice. They all are small, but not too small. Also, back terraces are smaller than the one on the front facade.
of course, when your room looks onto the street you have to be ready to wake up with first inhabitants of Skiathos town or to close the terrace window doors and use air condition.
The bus station is nearby - less than 2 minutes by foot.

Visited the hotel in August 2013. Its central location, the cleanliness and the magnificent harbor view are the hotel's highlights. Nevertheless, there are many things to be done so that the hotel offers a good experience: First of all the rooms are not decorated and all the equipment is merely basic. Its east balcony's with the curtains that do not shut the light out will mean an early waking up. On top, for what it offers, it is overpriced.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same.

We stayed for 7 days at the penthouse apartment.It was big enough for the 4 of us with an excellent view to the port and the main road.It was very clean and whatever we asked from the staff was done!The apartment has two bedrooms enough for 2 persons,a large kitchen-living room and a toilet.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

The hotel is in an excellent location in the new port (right on the main pedestrian walk). Even though we were slightly worried when we first arrived that the rooms will be extremely noisy, this was surprisingly not the case! On the plus side, the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, the view is great and the price is relatively reasonable (we paid 65euro per night). On the minus side, the rooms are average sized, the balconies are small and the price did not include breakfast. Also the reception is not manned, but if you want to ask any questions you can just pop down to the travel agency below (I think it is owned by the same person). I would recommend it.

The hotel has been renovated and is simple and clean. Centrally located with lovely views over the harbour. Having your own key means it is a little like having a lovely apartment to use and having a supermarket next door and the bus stop just over the road means you have everything you need to enjoy what is a beautiful island. Rooms cleaned every day - aircon - balcony with tables and chairs - clean bathroom - no hassle from staff or receptions to bother will. I would say it is ideal if that is what you are looking for too.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for a balcony

Just returned from a week in Skiathos. Booked the Akti Hotel because i wanted somewhere central and at a reasonable price. The hotel has been recently renovated and looks great in comparison with the other tired looking hotels around. Was however disappointed with the size of the triple room. Its was a double with an extra bed squeezed in which left not much room to move around. The room is equipped with a flat screen TV, nice modern furniture and frames. The fridge is tiny and there is not much room to prepare any food. Would have been nice if there was a kitchenette, The bathroom was clean but the shower only had a curtain so we forever had a pool of water to deal with after each shower. The room has a nice clean feel about it and has nice crisp sheets changed once during our week stay, towels were changed every few days. Beds are very comfortable. I paid the extra for a sea view room but was disappointed that there was a tree blocking the view and a wall on the other side. If you have a choice get a higher level room. A must is to sleep with the window closed as you hear all the clubbers leaving in the early hours making a terrible noise followed by the road cleaners sweeping the roads of bottles etc. Had a very noisy first night. Location great, right opposite the bus station, supermarket next door and all restaurants, shops, cafes and clubs.

Room Tip: Higher floors will have a better view

Stayed here 20th/27th June 2012. Had a great comfortable clean double room with bathroom and stunning view. Immaculately cleaned every day. Very friendly owner who is always available on site during the day if you need any help. Would recommend this hotel for its location as it is right on the new port, near the Bus terminal for access to all beaches and the harbour for boat trips and boat taxis, and most of all for the superb bars and restaurants in Skiathos Town.

Room Tip: ask for seaview rooms....not all will have one!
