Pleasant hotel with a flare of stepping a few decades back in time. Management should tackle the water damages, get rid of shower curtains and provide outlets in the room. Situated in the uppermost floor, in my bathroom started "raining" from the ceiling during a heavy storm. The breakfast is dull, but the ground floor restaurant is very nice.

Stayed: September 2018

This is barely a two star hotel. Basic furniture. Dirty carpet and peeling wall paper in hall. Discolored wooden floor in room. Lumpy mattress. Unhelpful front desk. We had to go to several rooms to find even barely-working air conditioning.

We recently spent another night at Hotel Rex and were looking forward to it, as we've stayed there a number of times before and generally found it to be the best hotel in the area, with nice rooms and great staff.

Above all we expect to able to have a good night's sleep in a hotel, especially one that prides itself as being a proper hotel with a distinguished history. We did have a problem with noise on a previous visit, but that was due to other guests and the staff did a great job of sorting that out. However, now the 'management' had decided that they would lay on loud live music outside the hotel restaurant (i.e. directly underneath a good proportion of the hotel's rooms) until 12.30 at night (on a Friday, I don't know about other nights). We complained about this and, as ever, the front of house staff did their best to try and solve it. But the attitude of the restaurant staff was essentially 'We have a license to make noise until 12.30 and that is what we are going to do'! Fine you have a license, does that make it a good idea to annoy your customers? Did any other customers complain? I don't know and I don't care - if you are annoying one set of customers you need to sort it out. Perhaps someone has run the math and decided that the extra restaurant receipts are worth annoying a few guests? Possibly, though I doubt that calculation has been undertaken - or that the need for it even entered anyone's heads there.

How loud was the music? Loud enough to stop us from sleeping four floors up, and my partner has a very considerable tolerance for noise - she could sleep through an earthquake (and given she grew up in Greece probably has!).

Super disappointed with this; this is where we like to stay in Mani at the end of our holidays and we've brought the hotel other customers too. The 'management', if they are to deserve that title, need to get a grip. Don't come on here and give us a load of spiel in response, do your job(s) properly and sort this out.

Room Tip: If they insist on playing loud music outside late at night, try and get a room at the front of the hotel to the left as you are facing it.

The outside is nice. Location is also good. Very old rooms. At least the 4 rooms that we got on the 4th floor. Breakfast was just basic. There are no cleaning (maid) services around the clock.
Friendly staff. Great Greek coffee.

Possibility of guided tours starting or passing through the hotel.
inclusion of a welcome drink or coffee just as you arrive.
Possibility of guided tours also on screen of the room.
TV can be wall-fixed where room area is critical.

Room Tip: bigger refregirators in height at least where room size does not allow bigger frig in all three dimensions. this will allow occupants use refrigeration for their own products,medicines,etc
