5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The property was superbly postioned... Just steps from the sea... The owners were very welcoming to me which was reassuring as i was staying alone. My room was airy and spacious. The decor and furnishing was slightly dated but did not bother me as it was very clean. The bathroom was small and could do with modernising the shower but it was adequate. I think they should advertise the cost of the air conditioning as for some €7 a night may eat into their spending money if on a budget. I would recommend the accommodation and stay here again.

Dueño malcarado, burlón y faltón

El dueño del dicho establecimiento de Apartamentos, nos atendió y trató de la peor forma posible que nos han tratado en cualquier local, hotel, apartamento o lugar al que hemos ido. Burlándose en todo momento y faltando al respeto (hablaba con su mujer con la que regenta el local) alegando que éramos españoles y seguramente obvió que quizá pudiésemos entender algo de griego, se dedicaron a soltar comentarios soeces indignos y que en más de una ocasión me vinieron ganas de coger las cosas e irnos. Pero una vez estás ahí y para evitar tener que cancelar y que seguramente no te devuelvan el dinero, decidimos seguir alojándonos en el apartahotel. Le dimos la reserva que habíamos realizado, nos da una habitación (no la que habíamos pedido, porque nosotros reservamos la habitación con la terraza, no con el balcón que fue la que nos dió), se lo explicamos y nos dice que es lo que hay, no puede hacer nada. Miramos la habitación que nos dan, y no nos quería incluir la placa de cocina, tal y como ponía explícitamente en la reserva. Pretendía cobrarnos 7€ por día para tener una placa de cocina en miniatura de dos fogones. Al final nos dio la placa de cocina de mala gana, no sin seguir hablando mal con su pareja de nosotros. Como evidentemente esa habitación no estaba preparada para tener cocina, no había utensilios de cocina, cuando fuimos a decírselo, entre risas nos dijo que usáramos un tenedor y que con eso nos apañáramos. Al final su mujer nos dio una espátula. Horrible.

Η διαμονή μου στο Rania studios ήταν εξαιρετική. Είχα καθαρό δωμάτιο με όλες τις ανέσεις που θα επιζητούσε κάποιος. Ησυχία και απόλαυση ύπνου! Οι ιδιοκτήτες τόσο φιλικοί αλλά ταυτόχρονα και διακριτικοί! Εξυπηρέτηση ΑΑ! Πολύ φθηνό σε σχέση με άλλα στη γύρο περιοχή! Γενικά είχα μιας βδομάδας εξαιρετικά ευχάριστη διαμονή!! Το συστήνω ανεπιφύλακτα!
