Hotel Astir is a solid, serviceable hotel. The first floor lobby and bar areas are pretty spiffy, tasteful and contemporary. (WiFi is available in the lobby bar.) On the other hand, the room was boring and very 1970s, though here was nothing really wrong with it. There’s a roof top pool and restaurant, however there was a private party going on and it was off limits. A courteous front desk clerk gave me some good advice about getting to Athens. Breakfast wasn’t anything special and service was non-existent. It wasn’t served on the roof, as I hoped, but just off the lobby in a room that reminded me of hotels in China. I had to walk over to the server with my cup to get coffee.
Departure was unfortunate because on my bill were two phone calls (about 50 euros) to the U.S. that I didn’t make. Oddly, given how hotel phone systems work, the lady at the desk wasn’t able to confirm that the calls were placed before I checked in at pm, so she wouldn’t remove them from the bill. I had to catch a bus and couldn’t hang out to press my case. Rooms on higher floors would have better views of the harbor. This hotel is fine for one night on the way through Patras, but not for a getaway or a special occasion.
