"Absolutely terrible!"

Rate:  1 Stars

We read several reviews on other sites before booking this hotel.
We found out from the locals that this hotel is heavily advertised.

We arrived at the hotel at around 9 pm. It looked really nice and the person at the reception was friendly.
The room was small (very small) however the furniture and decoration was traditional. The bathroom was really a converted closet with literally no room to move in the shower.

Despite all this we decided it was not too bad and that this was the price to pay for traditional (on top of our 90 euros per night).

Unfortunately, we immediately made another discovery! We were not the only ones staying in that room. Tens of big flying ants were sharing our bed, cushions and bathroom!

As soon as we walked into the bathroom to have a shower we discovered two(!) leaks from the cistern that caused the whole bathroom floor to be converted into a big (or I guess small since the room is tiny) puddle. It was impossible to walk in and if you dared falling over was inevitable.

We complained to the person at reception who said that he could not do anything for the leak that night (these leaks had obviously tried being repaired before as there was cling film(!) over them). It would have to be fixed the next day.
About the ants, we were told that “It’s this time of the year” and that another customer had an even bigger problem with hundreds of them. I wonder if that was meant to say that we are lucky….There was nothing they could do about it. All other rooms were booked…

We suggested that we go out for a walk and they’d do their best to vacuum the room, at least to get rid of them for the night.
When we returned at after 11.30 pm and absolutely exhausted, we tried to forget about it all and get some sleep. Because the room was next to reception and the front door, which everybody had to knock coming in (for that extra traditional touch) we didn’t manage to get any rest until 3.30 am.

At around 6 am we realised that apart from all the problems, we were given an east facing room with no blinds and no black out curtains!!!

We packed everything up and decided to leave. The owner didn’t care why we were leaving after only 1 night stay when we booked for 4 and when we asked for them to find us alternative accommodation the response was “If you don’t like it, sue me!.”
In fact, he said a lot more, but I’m getting tired of listing all the issues…

If after all that you still want to know about the breakfast, let me tell you it was very poor in choice and quality. Long life juice, dry cake, boiled eggs and 1 piece of cheesepie per person. They made sure of that as it was the only thing brought to the
table instead of sitting at the buffet for the flying ants to consume before us!

"Very expensive, small rooms, old building"

Rate:  2 Stars

We booked a quadre-room to stay with our very young two children. Unfortunately, this was a double room (the one shown in the pictures of the hotel`s site) with two additional beds (don`t know whether this is legal); so, very little room was left for living. The bath was very-very small. The whole room (including the bath) was hardly 25 square meters. And all this for 148 euros a day! According to my experience, this should not cost above 70 euros a day.
The worst was that the room was not heated adequately (central heating), although the inside of the hotel is quite warm; so our youngest child got a cold during the night.

They have a nice "restaurant" in the underground, but they only serve breakfast and wine. In order to have a lunch, we ordered from a local tavern, whereas we got an old bottle wine from the hotel (they have a excellent cellar, the wine was very nice, since 1998, and only 24 euros the bottle).

We decided to leave the second day and this was our worst experience: They asked us to pay the second day without staying, claiming that this is the law. After telling them that the only way to get the extra money is the juridical, they stopped insisting.

Some other details: They have wireless internet for free (quite fast). The breakfast buffet was small but interesting. The view from the rooms is marvellous. The area of the hotel is very nice for walking, although not very close to the downtown. Only two parking places; if you are not lucky, you have to park about 100 meters away (not a flat area).

"A casa di amici"

Rate:  5 Stars

Bellissima esperienza! Non un hotel ma una villa, sembrava di essere ospitati in casa d`amici! Arredi e stanze bellissimi e curati, un buon odore di pulito e di cera per il legno..... una vista bellissima sul lago! Unico neo i bagni molto piccoli. La colazione, ottima ed abbondate, viene servita al piano interrato in salette molto carine e particolari. Il personale molto gentile e disponibile. Se dovessi ripassare da Kastoria senz`altro tornerei in questo hotel.

"That is traditional!"

Rate:  5 Stars

Except of the fine place we found, the view was great.
Reception and room service was always friendly and we didnt meet at all the problems others mentioned in their reviews.
Perfect wine! We felt like beeing in another century as owners of a classy mansion in the Lake Kastoria.
