Just wanted to say that if you're looking for a good place to stay in Batsi this is just perfect. The room has air conditioning, TV, good shower and the towels and sheets were changed every other day. The room overlooked the bay at Batsi and you need to be able to walk up steps if you're intending to go... More

Nice apartment with a great view. The host Norma is very kind and helpful. She helped us rent a car in Gavrio. We even got tomtoes from Normas own garden. There is a busstop and a minimarket nearby. The harbor is a short walk away.

The apartments look out over the bay with the most amazing views over the hills and beach and also over a small wooded valley which are the grounds of an old mansion. The apartments have... More

I stayed for 4 nights. Very clean rooms and friendly owner, I constantly felt like I was at home! Lots of stairs to get to the hotel, but the view you get from the room is rewarding! No parking provided. The internet connection was perfect. I would go again!

Dora 1 has a great location in Batsi. Very near the shops & restaurants but peaceful as well. Small, simple rooms but clean and well equiped. A good choice for an economic stay in Andros.
