    Location was good for being close to the port, but the walk up a fairly steep hill with luggage has put me off from stying here again. Lack of communication about the breakfast that was included in the room rate, we were advised we could have our breakfast in our room but was then charged full rate for doing so

    The hotel is centrally located, and offers free wifi in the lobby.

    There is no way this is a five star or even four star hotel. Our room was supposed to be non-smoking, but reeked of smoke and the bed was quite uncomfortable. The hotel was generally worn, from the lobby, which at first glance looked stylish, but upon closer inspection was run down. The helpfulness of the staff varied widely, and I did not appreciate the snickers from the woman at the front desk when I, rather than my husband, handed her a credit card to pay.

    Το πρωινό πλούσιο και το προσωπικό πολύ ευγενικό και εξυπηρετικό

    Η πόρτα της εισόδου αν έχεις πρόβλημα στο χέρι δεν μπορείς να την ανοίξεις. Το πάρκινγκ ανεπαρκής αλλά η ρεσεψιόν με καλή διάθεση σε βοηθάεί. Μαξιλάρια λίγο άβολα.

    Για πρώτη φορά στην ζωή μου, έμεινα σε ένα ξενοδοχείο πέντε αστέρων ! Όλα ήταν υπέροχα. Το προσωπικό ήταν εξυπηρετικό, διαθέσιμο και επαγγελματικό, μιλούσαν άπταιστα αγγλικά (ακόμα και αν εγώ μιλούσα μαζί τους μόνο στα ελληνικά). Τεράστιο πρωινό (μπουφές με παρά πολλές επιλογές + 150), ευρύχωρο πεντεκάθαρο δωμάτιο, με μπάνιο πολυτελείας, ξεχωριστή τουαλέτα και βεβαίως εξαιρετική θέρμανση (ήμουν εκεί τον χειμώνα). Είναι η πρώτη φορά που βλέπω τέτοια εξαιρετική σχέση ποιότητας και τιμής. Στο Παρίσι για την ίδια τιμή (80€) θα έβρισκα μόνο ένα 2 αστέρων. For the first time in my life, I went to a 5* hotel. I have only praise for it. the staff was available, competent and very professional, their English was excellent (even though I only spoke Greek), Absolutely huge breakfast (+150 available choices), large room of perfect cleanliness, luxurious bathroom, separate toilets and, of course, excellent heating (I came in the middle of winter). I never saw such an excellent cost/quality ratio! In France, In Paris, I could get only a tiny 2* for that price (€80). Pour la première fois de ma vie j'ai séjournée dans un hôtel 5 étoiles. Tout était fantastique. Le personnel était disponible, compétent et très professionnel. Il parlait un anglais parfait (bien que je n'ai discuté avec eux qu'en grec),. Petit déjeuner gargantuesque (+150 choix). Chambre spacieuse à la propreté irréprochable, salle de bain luxueuse, et toilettes séparées. Bien sûr, bon chauffage (j'y étais en plein hiver). Excellent rapport qualité / prix. A Paris, avec le même prix (80€), j'aurais eu un minable 2 étoiles.

    Έπρεπε να φύγω... I had to leave... J'ai dû partir....

    Το ξενοδοχείο ήταν καταπληκτικό, σε πολύ βολική τοποθεσία στο κέντρο της πόλης, με πολύ ωραίους χώρους για πρωινό και πολύ ωραία, άνετα δωμάτια.

    Το μόνο μειονέκτημα που θα μπορούσα να βρώ είναι ότι ο χώρος για παρκάρισμα είναι μικρός, παρόλο που εγώ προσωπικά δεν δυσκολεύτηκα να αφήσω το αυτοκίνητό μου στους γύρω δρόμους.

    Schönes, sauberes Zimmer, gute Lage zur Altstadt

    Speisesaal/Frühstücksraum für 5 Sterne Hotel ungenügend. Hoteleigene Parkplätze unbefriedigend. Von 5 Sternehotel darf man Valetparking oder zumindest aktive Hilfe bei der Parkplatzsuche erwarten.

    Gute Lage, gut ausgestattetes Superiorzimmer, gutes Frühstücksangebot.

    Zimmer war bei Bezug nicht sauber geputzt. Ausreichend Stehpinkler-Urintropfen auf dem WC-Ring! Das Bett war nach dem Check-Out des vorherigen Gast nicht neu bezogen worden. D.h. die Kopfkissen schon, nicht jedoch die Leintücher...! igitt

    Very good

    Betten sehr gut, zentrale Lage, Frühstück reichhaltig-sehr gut

    keine ausgewiesene Entladezone, keine Hilfe beim Entladen, trotz ersichtlicher Behinderungen meiner Frau keine Assistenz auch auf abschüssigem Gelände gegen 22.00Uhr keine Präsenz des Personals in der Bar, nur auf Zuruf Bestellungen möglich direkte Einflugsschneise des Flughafens mit entsprechender Lärmeinwirkung
