“Polite service proffesionalism”
Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

The location of the hotel is excellent with a nice view close to chora
The personnel especially at the reception and restaurants is friendly ,smiling and polite
The room was decorated in a modern way with a nice view a bit small though
The owners son is willing to listen however and is open for suggestions and advice great choice as long as you negotiate the price and discuss with the owner since prices are quite high

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights, being the first to stay in our room since the hotel had just opened. The room was really spacious and with minimally beautiful interior design, nice furniture and comfortable bed. The exterior of the hotel is designed in the same aesthetic direction, offering the chance to relax and enjoy a panoramic view of the Chora.

Regarding the services:
Cleanness: Very nice housekeeping ladies, prompt response to everything requested (towels etc). Only flaw i noticed was the fact that shampoo was not regularly renewed.

Breakfast: The variety was acceptable, maybe slightly poorer than a 4 star hotel should offer.

Pool: Very clean and with a relaxing anbience. Pool sevice (mainly carried out by Stamatina, a very polite and happily serving girl) was excellent.

Reception: The reception guys were very kind and willing to offer any kind of information, not to mention their friendliness.

Price: In general the island hotels are expensive, and so is this one, compared with same level hotels in other islands. However, compared to some other hotels that offer less in the same island, it ranks in medium pricing, officially charging 170 euro per night, which can be though bargained due to its newly opening.

In overall, a very beautiful experience, probably not a real 4 star one in some aspects, but with friendly and relaxing atmosphere. According to my experience, a fair price as high as 120 at maximum should be paid for it in order to enjoy the stay without feeling dissapointed in any way.

We had booked a room for 3 nights. Unfortunately, we left the hotel after the first night for the following main reason. The hotel is still being built and therefore in the morning we woke up as we could hear somebody building the steps just outside the entrance door. During our stay in the daytime there were works taking place at most parts of the hotel. Therefore when we decided to take a swim in the pool we had around us many workers fixing several things. We were informed that the hotel just opened and we were the second clients. From our point of view the hotel is not at all ready to open. Most of the rooms did not even have windows which means that still there is a lot of work to be done.

When we complained and informed the reception that we would leave the hotel they told us to wait in order to find a solution. After a couple of hours waiting in order for the reception to contact their boss they tried to charge us for the rest of the nights we had booked without informing us at all about it, they just wrote down the receipt which of course we asked to cancel. They said that this was the cancellation policy, which was not the case and were just lying trying to take some more money from us.

As it was proved later on, the waiting time we spend in the hotel, was for the reception to contact their boss -the fat guy that the rest of the tripadvisors visitors mentioned in their comments for Chora resort and Vardia hotel as he is the owner of all of them. If you read client comments from these hotels you will read a lot of bad comments for this person and his hotels characteristics which are evident in Aspalathras hotel as well.

Other problems:

The Jacuzzi was not fitted well and all the water leaked out from the bottom and the bathroom and the room flooded.

The breakfast was pretty terrible. The waitress (who was pleasant) simply asked us what do we usually eat for breakfast so she could bring us the same thing. Also coffee provided was only French (No espresso!).

The reception was vfriendly but also very very inexperienced and had no idea how to deal with our problem.

In general the hotel is very expensive and not very nice. We only found the pool nice.

We finally found a room in Aeri hotel for more than half the price and the rooms were much nicer.

So from our point of view we suggest clients to chose other available hotels and not Asplathras.
