We booked this B&B based on the excellent reviews.
We booked what was called a "Dependence Double" on Lastminute.com which we thought would be just a standard double room. On arrival it turned out that this was actually a room in what was called "the annex". The Annex was around the corner from the B&B (so wasn't actually in the B&B at all - although breakfast was served there).
It was directly above the local Taverna. The taverna is packed and pumping music from around 12pm to 12 am and you can hear EVERYTHING from the bedroom. From the music, to the people talking right down to people cutting their food.
Not only did this noise keep us up until 12 am but then the room's windows are directly on the alleyway / road and not having double glazing meant that we could hear absolutely everything that went on around us. We were woken every 2 hours or so to "merry" tourists and locals chatting loudly outside our window all night long.
So not a very peaceful setting..
That being said - the room was very spacious, bed comfortable and the room was cleaned on a daily basis.
The location is perfect - very close to the Accadamia (sp?!) boat stop and museums which was very handy.
The breakfast left a bit to be desired. Consisted of 3 cereals, tea/coffee, croissants & Jam and that was it. In other Europe destinations we've stayed there is usually at least some cold meats and fresh cheeses...
I think if you were staying in the main B&B part then this would be a great stay - Just don't book the Dependence double!!!
