Avoid staying here at all costs. The only thing going for this place is it's location. I stayed here with my mum and sister for about 3 weeks and was absolutely appalled. On arrival we were given a room that smelled like sewerage and completely unsuitable for 3 adults to be living in for an extended period of time. After... More

We received an awful room(check photos). When asked to give us a better room the owner was rude and didn't want to hear it. When booking called they were just hanging up on them. I managed to cancel my reservation through booking at the end of the day. The owner suddenly became nice and offered us a better room. We... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed for almost two weeks. The hotel has a pool and sunbeds. The breakfast was fine and had something for everyone. I like bacon and eggs and such. The room was good. There was a TV, fridge, air conditioning and a balcony with furniture. The batchroom was maybe a little small, but only if you were... More

The only good thing about this hotel is its' location - very close to the old town, to the main beaches (5 minutes to the Aegean, 10 minutes to the Mediterranean) and to the bars-restaurants streets. The hotel itself is quite old but cosy. The bathroom equipment is very poor - after taking a shower all the bathroom floor was... More

The room was clean enough. No bugs or anything like that. The bathroom was in desperate need of renovation. It was cleaned maybe every two days. Towels changed twice in two weeks. Bed sheets once. Wine glasses only when we asked for clean ones. The pool was why we chose the hotel in the first place. Plenty of sun and... More

We were given a room on a floor which had dust bunnies in lift lobby, and a torn couch and when you walked out the lift there was a long corridor which looked like an abandoned unpainted, hospital from the 1950s. the lights didnt work which meant the corridors were always in the dark. The room we were first shown,... More

Stayed here a week, and I'm not very impressed. If you're there to party, I guess the hotel is as good as any other, with a very good location, close to the barstreet, the beach, shopping and restaurants. This also leads me to the fact that it is impossible to fall asleep before 4 am, because of all the parties... More
