Location: the rooms are located in Otzias, that is only a couple of minutes away from the port (Korissia) and from Vourkari where most of the bars and restaurants are situated. The area is quiet and calm and the access is easy. It is a good spot since you don't need more than 10 minutes by car to go to the supermarket, go to Chora (Ioulida), go out to bars and restaurants and of course to access several beaches.
The rooms: The rooms are actually studios that are part of the house of the owners. The owners live on the first floor and the the ground floor is separated in studios for 2 adults or for families with 1 or 2 children. My advise is not to take a single studio for 4 adults,even if the owner tells you so, since the two extra beds are small. The whole house is at least 20 years old meaning that the furniture is old and that you do not have any facilities that you could find in a more recently constructed building. There is also a big problem with the sound isolation. To be more precise; there isn't any. On a Sunday morning, during my stay, the owners had some friends over for coffee and since the weather was nice they decided to sit on the balcony, just above my room. I could hear everything, from their laughs to children running around and footsteps of people going up the stairs. I understand that this is their home but they should also understand that clients do not pay to get waken up whenever the owners feel like taking a coffee and chatting.
The price: The price, in comparison to the average price of the accommodation on the island, is small but with regards to the quality of stay is high.
I would only recommend this hotel as a last choice for someone who wants to stay near the port and Vourkari but who doesn't mind getting the absolutely minimum in terms of services and comforts.
