We stayed here as we arrived quite late in the evening. It was definitely a no frills hotel but for the price it was very good. Street parking available outside the hotel, ~20 min walk into town and breakfast available in the morning for €5
We were told that parking was available as a part of the hotel booking however there was no private parking, only street parking. This was fine for us as there was space available just outside the hotel however if there wasn’t we would’ve had to have walked a fair way. Would’ve been good to know this in advance.
Friendly staff, clean room
We needed a place to stay close to the port as we were leaving early in the morning to go to Santorini. The hotel was clean, within walking distance to town center and good restaurants, and easy parking on the street. The staff gave good recommendations on food and things to do in town and allowed us to park right outside their hotel.
The Reception was super friendly. They gave me a map and explained me my two constant questions when I travel - "Where is the best pizza in town and where is the best Gyros place?" And they were right !! It's also the first time in my travels, that I got a corner room and that the Wi-Fi was so good. The TV was working, it had some radio stations on and a lot of international programs as well. The toilet was clean, the room had a good A/C (with a heating option for the winter period), a safe in the big wardrobe and there was some water in the fridge. The balcony was huge - with some chairs, the windows had nice thick curtains and the light and electricity plugs were usefully rearranged. The room was not noisy, it had comfortable beds and it could be easy to sleep in. Nice breakfast, with a lot of cereals, many different types of full-grain bread, some cold-cut, croissants, dry berries juices, coffee/tea and appels. Lovely quiet lobby and breakfast area. Nice location - ten minutes away from the main square area and museums. I came with a car and found a lot of parking places in the little streets behind the Hotel thank to "Google Maps" :) The initial Email of the Hotel, that I got two days before my stay, did warned me about it, so I was prepared to do some "parking place looking" - and I am thankful for that.
To park the car in front of the hotel is not possible, so it takes some ingenuity to find your way on the narrow streets behind the hotel. Maybe would be a good idea to send a map of the street-area behind the hotel, with the initial email of "Greetings". I also had about three sets of towels in the toilet, that were not necessary. I think it was so, because the room is set for three persons by default. Well, better safe than sorry, I guess! :) I missed some more vegetables with the breakfast. But all and all - a really nice place, for a small price.
There is so convenient go to port & old town,remains.
The road is Hill , sidewalk too narrow.
