Overpriced, but very central

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 22, 2004

Overpriced for what you get. You are paying for the location. Room was spacious and clean with Air-con and balcony.

Standard of cleanliness was high, breakfast was good with lots of choice.

If you are at the front you will have good views of the main square, but even with double glazing it is very noisy.

Roof garden has views over city rooftops, but pool on roof is small. Decor in rooms is a bit garish - needs refurb IMO.

Rooms feature modern digital-combination safes (can get a laptop in them). Minibar is (of course) shockingly expensive (to be fair this is not unique to the Astoria).

Cafe Capsis serves mediocre food (and stops serving that at 10pm - not acceptable for an A class hotel).

Also not acceptable for an A class hotel: lightswitches are not straight (maybe this is a Greek thing in general, but I wouldn't expect it here). Very poor placement of electrical sockets - extension cables required in my room!

Bathroom clean but rather dark - 3 lights above mirror only, chipped bath, dodgy tiling on floor in bathroom (the latter two points may just be my room obviously).

Unique Quality: Bang in the centre of town, on the main square. Taxi rank opposite. Buses stop outside. Cinema next door. Very close to shops and cafes.

Balconies at front overlook main square.

All taxi drivers know immediately where it is.

Right around the corner from the Archaeological museum.
