The Astron Hotel is ideally located at the harbour of Kos which gives you a great view whilst having breakfast in the morning or a drink in the afternoon or evening.
However, it could do with an update of the rooms!
Furniture is old, somewhat worn, beds and the 1 chair in de room are very low. For elderly people this will cause a problem when getting up. Beds are VERY hard.
Bathroom is really sad.... dark brown/orange tiles, bath with repairs in another color, grouting had seen better days too. Shower gave only 3 tiny beams of water, took me ages to wash my hair. Toilet is really a disaster - your "produce" doesn't flush but stays in the bottom of the bowl. Sometimes I just emptied a bucket of water into it to make sure that it would go, otherwise you could still smell it.
I was first put into room 111 but this had a VERY tiny balcony (I first had to pull back the chair into the room, step onto the balcony and grap back the chair to sit on) and more importantly, I couldn't feel any wind coming into the room since it was located in a corner of the building. It faces the elimentary school so you are woken every morning at 07:45 by children playing there - and they are just as loud as children here! :-)
Bathroom there was light and airy and with a large washbasin area - had a much better feeling about it than the room (27) into which I was transferred after 3 nights. However, room 111 still has (blue) carpet on the floor whilst the new room had white tiles, that gave a cleaner impression.
Breakfast area is small which causes a queue almost every morning. Routing is not to the best of the possibilities so that sometimes you are just "stuck" between other guests.
Assortment is okay for Greek standards. However the scrambled eggs are a bit rubbery, the fried eggs are cooked in oil, the boiled eggs are always cold and green. Mushrooms, bacon and sausages are not crispy but just swimming in oil. A little bit more love and attention wouldn't do any harm. Everything is always replenished quickly.
If you accept all this and just want a well located hotel for a holiday where you spent most of your time outside it's okay but the hotel could definitely do with an upgrade. As soon as that's done, I'll be back.
3 positive "points" I should mention: Tony, Joanna and Adam at the reception are wonderful people that will help you with any questions you may have and make you feel welcome! Thnk you for being so kind to me!!
