“AMAZING!!!”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

We have now bought this property, to be renovated into a private home. I must say, I was/am AMAZED that this property operated as a "hotel", and that people spent money to stay there!! Of course, I realized that it was cheap, but as the saying goes, "You get what you pay for"!! There are beautiful hotels in Athens, in all price ranges. Shame you had an unlucky experience. Next time you're in Athens, stop by again. We'll complete our renovation, and have a drink on the terrace, looking at the Acropolis.

I was in Athens Plaka and was extremely sleepy that night.
Unluckily I went to hotel Kouros in Plaka area Athens
It was expensive but my husband and I were super tired
so my husband told me we just go up and sleep <can not be that bad>
we payed and then we were going up stairs to the room.
then I realised something was strange, we open the door,<<TERRIBLE >>
but we didnt have any other choice we were super tired and we had paid already.
Next day at 12:00 the owner came up to our room and nocked the door very loud.
He screamed at us saying "You have to pay me for 2 days,
one for the night <we had already payed> and the other, because he said that we had to check out at 11:30 when the official hotel check out time says 12:00.
My husband told the owner that we were not gonna pay anything
then he asked me the receipt from the night before! He didnt not give us any receipt of payment.
He then said that in case we would not pay him for 2 days he was going to call the police!!
We were afraid and we paid him.
He is a real crazy.
We love Greece. The people are nice I go there every summer
never had something like this before. Very upsetting.
Just make sure you will not go to this hotel, then you will have a great time in Greece.

  • Disliked — I'm so angry and want people to know The Crazy Owner's behavior, the Dirtiness and the tiny Beds!!

I and my friend stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. When we checked-in, we were asked to pay for one night and pay the rest on the next day.

On the next morning, I went to the reception to ask them there was a refrigerator we can use as there was no refridge in the room. There was an old guy at the reception and when I asked him about the refridge, he said 'Money!' with no smile. I was confused and asked again, but he just repeated saying 'Money! Pay now!'. He didn't understand English and was getting irritated. I explained again, but he didn't listened to me.

For 3 days after that, he was so rude to us and when we asked him about something, he was not helpful at all.
While we were arguing, there was a Greek man and he told us that he was the owner of this hotel.

Even we tried to explain again and again, he was just shouting in Greek and finally shouted 'No English!!'.

I think he should not sit at the reception if he can't speak English.
He was also so angry all the time and totally crazy.

I don't reccomend this hotel at all.
He was so rude, so bossy and so annoying.
