We stayed here for a full week, check in was easy as i had printed the conformation and the price off at home we payed £545 for a double room only breakfast was 7 euro extra per person per day.We tried it once ,breads, cereal , croissant very well done, cheese ,ham, jam marmalade and fruit to squeeze your own orange juice on a juicer. There was tea and coffee and a hot water jug but the water was only warm never hot.I do not rate the breakfast at all it's cheaper to eat out.The room was very clean and was cleaned everyday with fresh towels etc.there was only one chair to sit on so had to use the bed when we were both up and about. Two tea bags per day provided one black the other Chamomile kettle and fresh water provided but no coffee or milk they don't provide it.There is a lift to all floors,it can be noisy but only from other guests in the corridors that's not the staffs fault. The staff are friendly and the reception is clean and bright.Our room had no balcony or view we looked on to buildings,air con did work very well. Toiletries provided daily and clean towels, we did enjoy our stay but would go somewhere else next time just to compare facilities and get a balcony for somewhere to sit other than the bed, It was a pleasant stay all in all.

Room Tip: the 4th floor has no view from the room

We stayed in the hotel on Friday 21 of July. The hotel charged us USD$150 per night for a functional and basic double bedroom (price didn't include breakfast at all). The hotel is very noisy, we could hear people talking in the stairs and corridors during the night. The worst happened when at 1:00am somebody when to our room from the connecting room from the room next to us. Husband and I were sleeping but it seems the guy used our toilet, when I saw a light and man in the joining door I was freak out as I thought it was burglar or somebody who want to take our 3yrs old daughter. I called reception the apologize and they lock the door. We were very unhappy and we couldn't sleep after that. I don't trust the security in that hotel at all. Also, I requested a glass of milk and they asked me €7 if it was through the room service. So I went to the reception and I got for free. The only positive thing about the hotel is the location, it's very central.

Loved this hotel, the staff are so friendly and accommodating! The rooms were clean and set well. There was toiletries provided, and has an amazing balcony. Close to town and great place to be based. Breakfast was amazing and lots of different options. Has an espresso machine to make your own. Would recommend.

Stayed here for one night so we could explore Faros Old Town. Cafes, restaurants and nice shops all around. Hotel itself is basic but good value for money. Spotlessly clean, friendly lady at reception. Young employees appear a little lost as to whats going on but that did not impact our stay. Would recommend if looking for nice bed, clean room and close to all the old town has to offer

If everything was like the first impression hotel would be on the list of my favourites. Apart from a clean and very modern lobby and nice looking girl behind the front desk, most of the things turn to be horrible. After check-in, when we entered room 402, we realized that the toilet is almost impossible to use because it was situated in beetween shower cabin on one side and sink on the other. I simply cannot understand how this room was legally approved, because this doesn't meet any known standard. We complained asking for another room but nothing happened. Not only that we couldn't properly use toilet ( thanks to our friends that had a room on the same flor we avoided usage of common hotel toilets or pubic ones) but it also showed that every shower creates a smaller flood - draining system had problems as well. Second day our card key suddenly stopped working and it took me 20 minutes and three wisits of the reception to have it running g again. Of course with the comments of the receptionist - "you did something wrong for sure". Shortly - poore service and a place to erase from the list of decent ones.
