We had a lovely week. Hotel clean and staff were fine. This does not disguise the fact that, internally, there is a need to upgrade and paint, replace cracked tiles/ window panes, and soften and upgrade the whole place. As it stands, in it's present state it could be better classed as a Hostel! The location, however, is 5star, overlooking... More

When i booked it i saw a lot of negative feedbacks, but i have to say that hotel is good. It is at the center at the city and sea view rooms are amazing! You are literally in 3 steps from the sea! Conditioner is extra, that's true, but rooms are clean, nice, breakfast is good enough, and the owner... More

First of all, the staff was not helpfull when we asked where to park. The room has been poorly maintained: the refrigerator smelled, the showerhead was broken and the AC remote was absent (which you have to pay for). Breakfast didn't give much options but if you like old bread with salami you will be pleased. Thankfully we only stayed... More

Air conditioning costs 5€ a night which in the summer you really need, the Wi-Fi only works out the reception and even then it depends. The staff were friendly but not particularly professional. The bathroom was covered in mould and rust,... More

This is the second time we have stayed here and were delighted with our sea view studio.Aristea is a little bit tired but very clean with good maid service Al staff are friendly and helpful.The situation of hotel means easy access to village and local buses.There are many restaurants, cafes and bars offering well priced meals of a good quality.
