I spend my holidays at the Hotel Venus Melena , a retro receptioned hotel nearby the centre of Hesonisos. The location is fantastic , because anything you want is near you. The problem was with the turists. Too many Russian tourists , poor , with no manners , education and always full of food or alcohol. At breakfast I remember...

Paper thick walls, old establishment, poor service, wifi only at reception That breakfast was something I'll remember forever. I have stayed to many hotels before, never been served so bad coffee, so ugly omelet, so watery 'juice'. Stay away

To begin with we were notified by our booking agent, Travel Republic, 4 days before our departure date, that the hotel we had booked had been over booked and they were now offering us the Venus Melena as an alternative. We checked the reviews and didn't fancy it but they had us over a barrel and were more or less...

This hotel is centrally located. Walking distance to anything in town. Right on the bus route if you want to take an excursion, or venture out on your own to a neighbouring town. It's clean, and the room was fine. It's not a high end hotel, but it was fine for us as we never spend much time in our...

I was not impressed. Dead mosquitos on the walls, holes in the sheets, not so white towels. Not what I expected. Looking at photos on the net was so much better than the real thing.
