The Vrahos Hotel is absolutely the worst place we stayed during our fourteen days in Greece. Like many commenters have noted their website is the product of good camera work and tricky lightening. We booked a room only to show up and have the manager tell us it wasn't ready. They told us to wait in the bar, the bar had a good view so that wasn't such a big deal. After waiting ten minutes a waitress (who was pouring out of her bra and seemingly very pissed off) slammed down some menus. We pointed to what we wanted and since it seemed lost in translation we repeated it twice. She took our order. When she returned she brought wrong order, after we told her this, she actually snapped at us that now she would have remake the coffees! After waiting for half-an-hour in the bar upstairs, we went back down and inquired about our room. They told us to wait ten more minutes and were not apologetic at all. We waited ten minutes and then went back downstairs to ask again. The two women at the reception jumped up and said, "Oh, yes, it is now ready, It was very dirty and they needed more time to clean. We meant to look for you but you disappeared." Strange, because we were in the bar where they told us to wait. When we finally got to our room, not only was it not the room we reserved, it stunk of ammonia cleaner, the private balcony was not private at all (it overlooked a pay per use jacuzzi), the bathroom products were clearly taken from various other hotels, there was no internet in the room. The whole place place looked like it was quickly dusted-up as opposed to cleaned. It was so gross we didn't want to stay there. When we asked to change rooms or be refunded, the manager, Demetria, went from zero to sixty and not only refused but said we cld go talk to the police if we wanted our money back. We ended up canceling the charge and moving to the Hotel Aria which was lovely and very close to the beautiful Chora and not the port like Vrahos.
