Where do I begin really?I have booked this hotel a month before our arrival and especially requested a room at the last floor (the 3rd) with a double bed, new windows (not squeaky)and a view!
When we arrived after a 4hour journey at 15.30, the receptionist told us that the room wasn't ready and that we had been given a room on the 2nd floor with two separate beds and no view!
The best of all was that they had no key for this room because the previous couple who stayed there took it with them at the beach and we Had to wait for them to return.HAHAHA first laugh.Of course we made a fass and said that this was ridiculous and asked for the room we had booked.
The booking manager whom I had requsted for then came out and told as that our room had some electrological problems (hahaha second laugh) and as soon as they could they would fix them and put as there.For the time being they gave as another room on the 2nd floor with a double bed and a mere view to calm as down!
The room was awful small, noisy, with old furniture and old windows that were squeaky and the door also was making great noises when u opened it and closed it!These noises came from all the doors and windows of this floor.U can imagine.....!No sleep!
And the hotel claimed to be a 4star hotel HAHAHA(third laugh)
We waited for 4 days for our room on the 3rd floor and everyday we asked they said "as soon as possible".
Finally on a Sunday, which was the last day of our prepayment, they told as that our room hadn't been fixed and what they could only do was a discount of 5 euros per day HAHAHAHA(fourth laugh).
So we laughed and they made us leave and we had to spend our day looking for a new hotel, which fortunately we did that was great and I highly recommend it(Hotel Maistrali!)
So overall don't bother looking it up.It's not what u see in the pictures.It's not a 4 star hotel at all.It has 2 buildings and the bigger building where they put the most of the guests is old and noisy!
Just TERRIBLE

This hotel is very comfortable in natural surroundings. The room is clean and wide.
There are some small restaurants and shops nearby.

The hotel is family-operated. The hostess is an old mother who has warm heart. We talked in English.

The hotel is 2 km from Zante Town and there is no transportation from Zante ferry port or bus terminal. I was able to take a taxi from Zante bus terminal to go to the hotel.
But after check out, I was not able to find a taxi around the hotel and walked for 30 minutes with my luggage to Zante town. It is better to go by car.
