I read the reviews of this hotel and they couldn't be more wrong!!!
The front desk staff was wonderful and the location is great, that is where the good things about this hotel end. The breakfast was good as well.
My room: 104, smelled of the bathroom drain. I think this room my have formerly been a janitors closet. I complained about the smell, but there was a Marble Convention in town and no rooms to be had, anywhere. I was stuck. They offered to put something in the drain, which helped very little. The bed was about 50 years old and the stains on the mattress confirm it. The pillows were hard as cement and my room was over and next to a disco. The loud music started at 5pm and continued until at least 2am. Plus there was some sort of work going on during the day and the noise was everywhere. I could even hear the noise from the lobby.
There was NO hot water my 2 days stay and the view was of the fire escape and a wall.
Even as a budget travel place, which $75+ it was NOT worth it. I wouldn't recommend this place, even for budget travelers/backpackers.

... cut I've had in year!
We also paid £1.60 for a bag full of clams from a guy on the street....sounds a bit dodgy right?!? Yeah I thought so as well but it's very popular and sold on every street corner, they are basically pre-cooked with rice in the shell and sold on the streets. How on earth do you tell if they are fresh or not?!? ....well you don't! Life's a risk!

This is where the "Anzac legend" started. The Australians and New Zealanders came together to form an army corps functioning under the leadership of the British army. The British commander was actually giving orders sitting on an island farther out to sea, he wasn’t with ...
... there we thought it seemed alright but after about 5 minutes decided that the fact we would have to wait till morning for a hot shower and the fact that the shower was locked with a padlock was a little ****. So we headed out and found another place to stay that was only 10 lira per night which is super cheap. After that we headed out for some dinner we had some beans in a sauce and then chicken in a broth with potatoes and some bread. We got chi tea and ...
... find a supermarket and buy fruit and ayran (natural drinking youurt) which i'm now addicted to. in fact my diet seems to be breakfast (olives cucumber cheese bread and honey), ayran, bananas, oranges, crisps and beer.
I also get the chance to find out about the actual boat. its a 17 berth vessel (i.e. lots of people) entirely motor driven and doesn't have the power to charge phones etc. I'll be out of touch for four days from Saturday.
... has been playing on my mind for some time. If I go much further I'll have to change my tent which is too roomy for one person and weighs about 4kg. I've not used my cooking kit for a while as I've been eating sandwiches or buying cheap meals but it will come in useful in future. I made my way to Finike. My speedo has broken so I'm having to guess at distances. The wire has snapped after lots of fiddling with different mounting positions. I feel strangely liberated. Before I ...
