This hotel is a classic Greek 3 star with clean, basic rooms that can appear a bit dated to those that think that they are going to get a 5 star experience. My wife and I spent 2 nights here in September 16 as a small getaway from the family after getting married in Agios Nikolaos. The hotel location is... More

Clean hotel with pleasant & helpful staff. We asked at the front desk for various things eg where to go etc and they always helped us out. Breakfast just right, very close to beach, restaurants & bars. Everything walkable distance.

Good place to stay and very good location. Only issue is the noise coming from the street. AC costs extra but you dont need it. Floors of the rooms are a bit dusty. Breakfast is really good and everything else is spot on.

We had reserved a seaview apartment. When we arrived, they had overbooked, so the first night we were not able to stay in the room we had reserved. The staff was very sorry and gave us free dinner for both of our nights' stay. The second night we were able to move to our room and enjoy the seaview. The... More

The hotel is on a great location, close to the beach, the bars and restaurants, the shopping street and bus station. The staff is very friendly. If your expectations for room exquipment, food and hotel entertainment are not to high, you can spend a very nice holiday here.

The reviews on Booking.com were good with the exception of one turkish fellow who ended being dead on. The furniture was old, the mattress stiff and the room was smelly. I booked a double bed with garden view, I got twin beds with ground floor street view of the police station less than 50m out front. The reviews praised the... More

The staff were always pleasant and tried to help your stay as nice as possible.The food of course was a selection of Greek food every day which suited me fine but did not suit my wife one bit.

I was there 10 nights with my family and everything it's ok. Everyday they clean the rooms, good food with a beautiful garden where you can take your breakfast and dinner, excellent location 10 m from the sea, and 500 m from the Supermarket. The hotel it's situated in the middle of Hersonissos. You have all you want there, friendly... More
