The photos shown by the management is somewhat dated and does not really show the real condition of the rooms and lobby area. U are better judging it by traveler photos.
We are a couple staying here with two luggages. We can't even find place to lay down ONE of our luggage let alone two. In the end we had to lay down one luggage in front of the toilet door which was a hassle for 3 days.
Bed was 2 single bed set side by side and the sheets weren't placed together to make it 1 big bed. The blankets are all single size which makes covering up at night really uncomfortable. But if you can see pass all this then the location and view is fantastic.
Located 3-4 mins walk from the center and on the way to Meteora. It's directly opposite the only car rental place in town. And right opposite is a mini market, bar and a bakery. Cafes and others are all very nearby. There is a TavernParamithi opposite also which serves the best Greek meal I had and service is excellent.
The view of my room is great. Woke up open the balcony and it was the rocks of Meteora every single morning.
It's good value for money too this hotel. Only if u can look past all the negatives.
