“AMAZING”
Reviewed October 29, 2009

Myself and partner stayed at this hotel in both June and september 2009..Can i just say that I can't believe some of the reviews i have just read. I am very hard to please when it comes to hotels and holidays, i have stayed many places, but this has been the best by far. we first stayed at this hotel in June this year and could not believe how friendly the staff were,, they go above and beyond their job,,and cannot do enough for you. It's just a lovely atmosphere to be in. The hotel is clean and cared for and nothing is a trouble. We stayed Bed and Breakfast and could'nt fault the food,,you had the option of a full english breakfast or cereals, pastries etc etc. The hotel is centrally located for access into skiathos town, it's about a 5 minute walk into the main harbour area which is lovely. Skiathos is a lovely place with friendly people which always makes the holiday. I visited many other hotels on my visit but we were glad that we stayed at La Piscine because it offered so much more. I have noticed that Thomsons holidays also advertise this hotel in their 'Chic n Unique' brochure and i can see why. We have already booked up for next year.

WE HAVE JUST RETURNED FROM A VERY POOR STAY AT LA PISCINE,WE ALWAYS USE TRIP ADVISOR SO FELT WE SHOULD MAKE AN ENTRY REGARDING THIS HOTEL !
We were happier when we were not at the hotel we felt very ill at ease about being around it.
room 201 along with 203 205 301 303 305 401 are very bad for noise from the bar which went on after midnight most nights of the week and the pool has loud music during the day and there is poor seating if you are trying to avoid it.The air conditioning rule is like being treated as if YOU WERE SAY ABOUT 5 YEARS OLD ?It seams to speak for its self that people are on their second or third visit to the hotel, one couple were on the 9th!!"BUT DO THEY SEE WHAT ITS LIKE NOW ?Our room was facing the back "THE GARDEN" which IS A TRIANGLE SHAPE OF ABOUT 5 METERS WITH A ROAD AND QUARRY BEHIND IT !
SO A 2 STAR B & B WITH GOOD STAFF I THINK AND THESE DAYS CUSTOMER SERVICE SHOULD BE EXPECTED NOT GREAT FULL FOR !!

Encouraged to go here by many positive comments on Trip Advisor. Very disappointed as did not come up to Brochure. Basically, a 1960's/1970's hotel with pool in centre and done up. Art is not to everyone's taste. Specifically, beds incredibly hard; room very small with poky bathroom. Promised balcony but had walkway outside. Breakfasts poor, particularly English cooked prepared in advance and kept in hot tray, but cold bacon and steamed tomatoes. No proper toast and generally very poor. Loud music from 8.30 a.m. until almost midnight. Redeeming features were the staff who were excellent and we had brilliant weather. Would not stay here again.

..........possibly best on the island. Small, clean, ideally situated. Staff all good. Breakfast had something for everyone and even decent coffee. Lunches by the pool were excellent. One point, six of the thirty or so rooms have a connected open corridor in front of them that my tour operator called a "balcony or terrace" which offered no privacy. Upgrade to a superior room to be safe. Overall, well worthy of its four stars.

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Skiathos and stayed at the superb La Piscine Art Hotel, the hotel really is set in a wonderful location, 10 minutes if that from the centre of town & local bus stops. I can recommend this hotel highly enough, the rooms were perfect and the staff fantastic, especially Olga, Andreas and Lauren who couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. We ate at the hotel a few times and the food was fab, we didn't eat there every night as there are so many fantastic restaurants to eat in that we were spoilt for choice. The bus stop was close by and we travelled to quite a few of the beaches although Koukanares at the end of the bus line was our favourite. We also watched Mama Mia at the open air cinema, what again was my husbands comment but hey when in Greece!
Having read the other reviews about breakfast and the noise from the bar I would disagree, yes there was some noise from the bar but guess its how it affects you, I slept thought it, as for breakfast there was more than enough choice including fresh fruit when we were there. Not a bad word to say and would most certainly return, in fact where are those 1010 brochures!

Just returned from the very lovely La Piscine Art Hotel,it is as clean and elegant as other reviews say and the majority of staff were friendly.The cleaners were in everyday keeping rooms spotless,breakfast was okay-don't know what everyone is moaning at.My favourite thing about the hotel was the time I spent away from it!Unfortunately I happened to be there when a fellow guest (i liked to think of him as me,myself,I as this was his favourite subject)and cling-ons ruined it for me, completely ignorant as to noise they created or what time the noise went on until 3.30-4amish one morning-staf seemed unable to do anything about this.Think his wine bill may have had something to do with this.Felt very uncomforfortable on all aspects being around the hotel not very pleasant being discussed at breakfast-must have been the school bully and obviously never grown out of the habbit-needless to say won't be returning.

All of the previous reviews are absolutely spot on this is a really gem in terms of Greek accommodation. We purposely went for the best that was availabe in Skiathos town having stayed in alternative accommodation on 2 previous occasions over the last 15 years. The hotel staff were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble for them; Olga is a star and sets the standard in terms of customer service. Lauren and the twins were great keeping us supplied in drinks when needed. What was disappointing as a previous reviewer commented (room 201) was that noise from the bar did go on after midnight most nights of the week that we were there and that the owner allowed it to. On one night this went on till about 06:30 hours. Clearly the bar bill for the group that monpolised the bar area every night was more attractive to the owner, who was drinking with them , than consideration for the remainder of the guests!!!

The comments by previous reviewers about the breakfast seem a little injust (I agree with the tinned fruit comments) as this is, from my experience of most european destinations typical and is repeated in most of the Greek hotels I have stayed in previously - what do these people have at home every day, probably a bowl of cereal or a slice of toast? If you want UK 4 star breakfast choices stay in a UK hotel and even then quality is not always 4 star!!

The air con is a pain but it is easy to plan and put your request in to the reception staff who will switch it on or off when you want it and prevent it being left on all day consuming huge amounts of power in these time of global warming and caring for the planet?

The unsung heroes of this hotel are the cleaning staff, our room was always spotless and all of the public areas around the hotel were always immaculate.

We will return to Skiathos next year as it is our favourite destination however it may not be La Piscine sadly due to the noise from the bar every evening, unless there are some guarantees that management prevent this happening again?

PS - the kittens were a great source of amusement all week!!
