Firstly let me state that this hotel is in a good location, if your taxi driver can find it. The rooms are clean and large. The staff are very friendly and it's cheap. All that said. I paid for two nights but only stayed one. I arrived by taxi from the airport we went up and down the street 3...

Location OK: in a quiet (by local standards) side street, not too far from the main attractions and shopping areas. Helpful staff at the reception desk (particulary Mina). We have been offered an early check in at no extra cost. Room (201) was spacious and clean, with a view over the courtyard of the St.Catherine school just across the street....

We stayed in one of the apartments around the corner from the main hotel. Booking.com had over booked them for the hotel rooms, but they were kind to allow us to stay with them for the same price in the apartments. The staff was friendly, helpful, and always available. Room was clean and comfortable and they brought us fresh towels...

A very little hotel but....When you arrive it seems a fake from outside one would think is the usual touristic bad cheap place but the staff very nice, rooms nice, clean, comfortable, nice services, nice location. In your room can make on your own coffee or tea. And it is absolutely cheap.

Looking for a 5 stars hotel, you are at the wrong place. Otherwise you may want to try as it has been for us a great discovery We spent 10 days. Our room was clean. We did not check the others. Bed was new. Breakfast was ok. If fruits can be added it would be great Clean towels every day....

Not easy for taxi drivers to find, I discovered, it lies opposite Saint Catherine School and adjacent to the Greek Orthodox Church. A five minute walk to the shops and Corniche, the small hotel occupies the first and second floors of what was, once, a large family house and resembles a spacious two-floor apartment giving a homely atmosphere. Each room...

The hotel is inside a residential building. Our room was clean but there was always a smell. There was a broken tile which always produced noise whenever we pass over it. The breakfast was not good with poor variety of food. I wont stay there again. Still i can pay a little bit more and be better satisfied.
