The worst experience we had while visiting Greece and staying at many wonderful hotels. This hotel is nothing but the front. The photographs on the hotel's website and on booking.com do not give a realistic view of the hotel.
When we arrived at the hotel and came to the reception, we met a very unwelcoming, unhelpful and arrogant front desk employee. We wanted to go to another hotel but were too exhausted after a long travel day to go and find something else.
The room was very dated, surely needs a painting job (you could smell that this was once a smoking room), not clean and horrible beds. It was "a sea view room" which sounded rather nice but it should be called "a room with lots of noise from the traffic". We could have just as easily slept in a tent in front of the hotel, so much was the noise. And we hardly caught any sleep at all. The dirty and dated room made you feel as you could expect a cockroach or bed bugs coming crawling on you while sleeping.
From the first minute we regret staying at this hotel.
