The room view was amazing (Meteora rocks in front of the balcony), good location (fairly close to various stores and restaurants), good value for money, clean and nice room. Breakfast was decent (fresh vegies, fruits, juice, coffee, dairy products, olives, butter&jam, biscuits). Friendly stuff. Lovely fireplace in the reception.Loved it!

Very good value for money, good location, the cliffs can be seen through the window and at the same time situated in the real center of the town . The staff is kind and friendly, there are airconditions in the rooms. The breakfast is pretty poor, but again fir the pric paid-ok.

Very different from the photos in their website. The room was very dirty, we found spots and hair on the sheets, the heating wasn't working and the room was cold, the bathroom had poor lighting and it was smelly. They didn't know how to use credit card.There were no roof garden facilities. Location good, staff friendly.

On these rocks, the James Bond film “For Your Eyes Only” was filmed featuring Roger Moore and Carole Bouquet in 1979. On the west side you can see the very long range of Pindos with the famous Aspropotamos (White River) area and its mountainous villages which provide a unique view for nature-lovers. ... more   less
