Liked historic and seaside location, contemporary room furnishings, heating, windows, bed, and staff. Didn’t like “breakfast”, no eggs or protein. No tub. Water temperature not hot enough for me. Bar and restaurant were closed early.

Easy access, right in the center of downtown, fast check-in, friendly staff, we always found parking in front of hotel or a few steps from the hotel, clean, comfortable, super quiet, and there's a restaurant bar right at the entrance of the hotel. Food was good too. We would definitely be visiting again. We strongly recommend this hotel.

The property is very industrial chic, new, clean and cool. Very different from a regular hotel chain. The lounge has a great atmosphere and we had dinner and enjoyed the bar after a show at the Zeiterion Theatre. The food was fantastic and the lication of the hotel was terrific
