We booked a spacious double room with sea view free wi-fi and air conditioning (hotels description not mine)
We got what would have been a small but adequate double had it not been for an extra bed making the room a tiny family room
We had no hot water during are 4 day stay except for the one day the owner turned on the water heater
We had no air conditioning, We had to ask for the remote to operate the air conditioning which was begrudgingly handed over but then did not work anyway.
We had no Wi-fi (which was supposed to be available through out the hotel) at any time any where during are stay
We had no facility to be able to make ourselves a cup of tea or coffee in the morning.
Rooms can be quite noisy into the early hours from the bar below the rooms, shower rooms are dated and poorly constructed though clean linen and towels are provided daily.
The owners description of her hotel and facilities seem to come with a good amount of artistic licence and she has at best a lackadaisical approach to her guests well being has standards that were common place in Greece 30 years ago and for many part of its charm, but in 2013 is no longer acceptable not for me in any case
