Disgusting Mold Stench
Where to begin...wow, this place was bad. This was the worst place we stayed on a 2-month backpacking trip (this includes hostels at a fraction of the price). The room had poor ventilation, resulting in an absolutely rancid smell from the moldy bathroom. The "cave room" was more like a dark, dank basement room with one tiny window. I have a mold allergy, so we asked for a refund and wanted to move to another hotel (as this was obviously a ventilation problem throughout the property) which the staff denied, despite my health and discomfort. We are a young couple who simply could not afford to eat the cost, so we were trapped there. They moved us to a smaller room that smelled slightly better. I never thought a hotel experience would actually make me cry, but this almost ruined our stay in Thira. The waiter just watched as a big dog tried to eat off my plate in the "fine dining" restaurant. I'm not kidding. Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else. We are not picky and this is the first bad review we have ever left about a hotel. It baffles me that this place has a decent rating. Wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy.
