My 16 year old son and I stayed at the Bratsera for three nights in June of 2012, and could not have been more pleased. The hotel is "kitchy" and beautiful!! It's everything you would think a hotel on a Greek island should be; whitewashed walls, boganvilla, pillars, white curtains, old stone steps. It's a renovated sponge factory, and there are old artifacts everywhere. The sponge press is still in the lobby, along with sponges and nets, etc. There's a real cannon in the courtyard. Also a fountain, a beautiful pool (only one on the island), and lots of chairs, tables and lounges around the pool to just hang-out on. The original handwritten ledgers from the sponge factory are just sitting around in the library for you to look at if you want. There's pictures of the workers and factory during full production on the walls, which we found very interesting. Our room was super! We had one of the "cheepies" on the ground floor with no balcony. We loved all of the solid stone, and the bathroom was adorable. It's all as you would imagine it years ago, except everything has been modernized and it all works flawlessly. Yes, others have stated that the bathrooms are a bit small, and ours was on the small side, but it was wonderful to use a stone sink! And the shower was beautiful with stone and a small window. If you are looking for the Hyatt, stay in the US please. If you want the "real deal" and some amazing memories, come to the Bratsera. The staff could have not been more friendly or helpful. Hydra is stunning, and the Bratsera is the best.
