This hotel is a very nice place to stay. It's only 5 minutes walk from Skiathos City centre and further more very close to the main road that allows to reach other towns with car. Rooms are essential but excellently cleaned and there are some important comforts, i.e. Air Conditioned and WiFi for guests. Hotel's personnel is above any expectation:...

The hotel is located next to the ring road, which is convenient as there is a bus-stop close by, as well as a number of trailheads leading to the mountains. However, in high season it is recommended to get the bus from the starting point. The hotel is a 10-minute walk to the port and there are a couple of...

My wife and I have just stayed here for 7 days and found it great value for money. Ignore the bad reviews from the two young ladies....they were obviously looking for a different kind of holiday than most of us ! As stated in other reviews, Alex and John were very helpful and welcoming. The apartment was spacious but with...

I really enjoyed my stay here in June 2013. The hotel had a great location, five minutes to the main street, but yet it was peaceful at night, which was a bonus. Very clean rooms, room was cleaned, new towels provided every second day. Owners were so nice and kind, they were very helpful with information about Skiathos, even picked...

This is budget accommodation so my expectations were not high but I was pleasantly surprised. My room was modern, spacious, spotlessly clean with a nice bathroom and air conditioning included. The bed was comfortable. Having a balcony was a bonus (I think all the rooms have one?) It was a lovely sun-trap the mornings and a haven of shade in...

I stayed there in mid July with my friends and the experience was not as pleasant as i thought so!! The people were rude and refused to clean the rooms and change sheets during our 8 day stay there. You are not allowed to invite a friend over, not even in the common space area and one of the owners...

You have to give your key to the reception when you leave the room and when you go back you have to wake up the "24 hours" receptionist to open the front door for you. We had an argument with the owner because they didnt let us invite a friend in our room and from that day they havent cleaned...

We stayed here for 1 week during June, wanting a budget holiday that did not hurt our pockets too much. It is a family run hotel, 2 brothers, Alex and John, and their mother were perfect hosts. They made us feel very welcome and like a part of their family. It is a new building about 5 minutes walk from...

A very warm accueil (two of the owners picked up us at the harbour and get on foot at the hotel, as for our request) a very nice, clean new building, large room with an entrance and a big bathroom. Good breakfast and a smiling presence at every hour.
