Excellent location. Few min walking from the port, where you can take many buses to different parts of the island. Very clean and tidy room (every day was cleaned). The balcony was the highlight of the room, very big and with amazing view to the see.

Visited on August 2021

Spotlessly clean , bright , airy and spacious room, large balcony with great sea view . Good amount of sockets especially by the beds and plenty of lighting alternatives, also good wifi speed . I loved the location as I could easily walk to the port or the Chora and there is a bus stop right outside if needed. It is run by a very friendly family.
