Reasons for trip


Bedding and towels clean and fresh; Instant hot water for morning shower; air-con/heater; Staff (reception and dining) pleasant and attentive; free WiFi (which worked well in my room). Most rooms have a balcony. Breakfast – extensive cold buffet including good (Greek, of course) yoghurt; mixed fruit salad (tinned – with prunes also on offer); croissants and bread rolls; selection of cereals; cakes; whole fruit; cheese and cold meats; tea and (filter) coffee. Small ‘hot’ selection. Central location – good for shops and the cruise/ferry port; and museums (Maritime and Archaeological). Was a 3-night working visit late November so didn’t get a chance to test those places. Noted also that they advertise ‘free parking’ in the basement which – looking at the traffic and street parking – must be a bonus a town-centre hotel! Rooms are somewhat dated – but well cleaned and freshened-up daily. Being in centre of town, there’s a level of traffic noise late at night – especially for the front rooms. Got used to it after the first night, as you do, and other hotels will be no different on that point, I expect. Evening meal selection limited, but mostly good, and very reasonably priced. My filet steak on the first night was nice and tender. The preceding (minestrone) soup was thin and watery. Wine selection limited. Spaghetti Carbonara on second night (too cold to go out!) was tasty and a good helping with plenty of ham. Made the mistake of ordering ‘grilled shrimps’ on the third night – not realising that I’d be getting langoustines that I’d have to finger peel … I’m a lazy eater and don’t like fighting for my food! A ‘Greece’ thing not specific to this building – a notice in bathroom asking that we don’t flush toilet paper down the bowl – has to go into a small bin (ok – so I’m queasy about that type of thing – still cringe at the thought of dunking babies nappies from years gone by!) Maybe it’s time Europe went the Japanese route – with toilets that have a ‘bum wash and blow-dry’ device? Summary: I haven’t stayed in this town (nor anywhere else on mainland Greece) before, so have nothing to compare with. The hotel suited me for this short working visit – being in walking-distance port area where I was delivering a training course ‘onboard’ and, if coming again for more of the same, I’d be happy to stay in this hotel – it isn’t their fault that their choice of bedcovers didn’t appeal to me!
