Aktaion City Hotel Gythion Reviews
Aktaion City Hotel Nov 23, 2012
Aktaion City Hotel is the most beautiful structure in the small seaside and harbor town of Gythio which is the gateway to the wild and remote area of mainland greece - the mani peninsula. it is located in lakonia, peloponessos.
the hotel is located directly at the promenade facing the mediterenean sea, with most of the shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and close to the location of the picturesque lighthouse located in the small island of kranae that is connected by a narrow causeway from the small town.
the hotel staff are very friendly - they even waited for us because we got there very late from athens at almost 11 pm which is unusual for check-in time. they even provided us informations about directions and roads to take to the sites around mani peninsula because we dont have a map with us lol. the service is very warm and friendly.
it is also VERY CHEAP as we booked in the off-season we only paid 90 euros for 2 nights for 2 people! but wifi here is a little strange though - you only have can access at the hotel reception but it disconnects every 5 minutes lol.
the free breakfast is not a buffet though - a simple service of hot drinks - tea/coffee, hard boiled egg, cheese, jam, butter and cookies but you can ask for more if you want to. but it was ok for me coz im used to camping so i dont get this every day lol.
the only thing that put me off is the shower - it was too small surrounded by curtains and sometimes theres no pressure coming out, so the water doenst gush out but it was again - ok for me coz im not really picky - ive had worse.
all in all - i recommend to check in at this hotel if you want to explore - the least explored part of mainland grece - the wild mani peninsula!
