“Rundown "hotel": never again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2011

Apart from its wonderful location, this "hotel" is like a bad quality mountain hut but higlhy priced (small double room at 95 euros a night, without breakfast): old rooms, not clean, with used blankets (really now, what kind of respectable hotel is still using woolen blankets full of stains??), horrible curtains who didn't keep the light out, no electric plugs, a flat TV which always lost the sign, no wifi in the rooms, tiny shower and horrible old fashioned and dirty carpet!!
We felt so weird there, that we cut the stay short of one night, and we were so happy to be back home. Needless to say, they charged the night we didn't sleep there!
More negative points: no elevator, no wheelchair accessible, basic breakfast at 8.50 eur,(no thanks!) and not even a vending maching with snacks or water, given that the hotel is a looooong way walking to any shop in the area.
The hotel needs some serious renovation work, as you could hear everything between the walls, and you had to be constantly careful not to touch the walls, the carpet, the blanket... Of course, I doubt they will renovate, as they already make so much money with the current state, tourists being fooled by the lovely outside photographs in their website. Didn't you find it weird that there were no photos of the rooms? Well, of course not! If you visit that rundown "hotel", you will know why! Never again!

My parents in law have a small apartment in Le Moulleau where we usually spend our holydays. As my sister in law stayed a little longer than expected, we needed a place to sleep for the first 2 nights before moving to our place. So we rented 2 nights in Ttiki Etchea.
We spent our first night in a room that was way too expensive to what it offered: everything looked extremely old and not very clean. As we had our luggage in the apartment, when we left our room the following morning, we just left behind our toothbrushes and pajamas.
You can imagine our surprise when we went back that night to fetch up our key and found out that our room had been rented to someone else! They said that they thought we had left without paying as we didn't leave anything in our room. Not true, as they had our staff with them. They also said they had called us and we didn't answer. Not true again, as no missing calls in our mobiles (and when they did call the day after we received their call). What they did do, of course, was charge BOTH nights on our credit card.
All hotels in the surroundings where full, so after a couple of hours discussing what they would do for us, they finally gave us a room they used for the night watchman (that they prepared in 5 minutes so you can imagine how we felt about taking a shower there).
Of course they didn't offer any apologize nor they had any detail with us. It was almost as it was our fault!. I wasn’t surprised the following morning when I asked for a formal complaint form and they had none...
