I chose the Lato Boutique based upon my travel books recommedation. It was the most expensive hotel I stayed at during my three weeks in the greek island and my least favorite.
We walked into the reception after a long day of traveling by ferry. The receptionist was not very friendly. She asked for our reservation and started working on her computer. We were asking questions about where to find the restaurant, use the wifi and book transportation for the next day. Rather than completing the reservation process with our small group, she asked us to be quiet so she could deal with a walk-in who wanted a room. We had to wait until she finished giving him a new room before she provided us with some basic information. It wasn't a good first impression.
I booked a double room, which ended up being in a separate building on the bottom floor of a busy and noisy street. We didn't get very much sleep that night due to the noise.
The only redeeming virtue of this hotel was the breakfast buffet. It was really yummy with great coffee. Otherwise, I think it is overpriced and not worth the rates.
