Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed for one whole week, I have found nothing to criticize except Internet connection which was unstable. Located at the city center, actually a very old building that has recently renovated. Staff is friendly and quick, hotel offers excellent breakfast and very comfortable mattresses (something important to me) I'm very satisfied and I can recommend.

The hotel has very nice and sufficient rooms. It has an elevator. The location is great if you want to be at the center without having noises. It has a nice breakfast. The staff is friendly. They will provide you with good advice. It is quietly and convenient in many ways. There is parking either in front of the hotel or close by.

What to make of the Rex? It should be better than it is. Situated in a building with a splendid historic facade, the interior is drab and tired. Our greeting was cordial, our reservation in order, and we were pleased the desk seemed to be staffed 24/7. The elevator worked most of the time. There is much to like, and much that could be improved. If location is everything, the Rex has this in spades with no viable competition anywhere near. The fun bars and small shops of Old Town, such as the amazing spice store, are almost just out the door. The castle is a ten-minute walk, the fabulous farmers market is barely five. Plentiful and inexpensive city parking is available in the lots across the street. My fee for overnight was €4.50. An unexpected off-season bonus was that with so few guests, instead of the buffet you get a table-served breakfast virtually made-to-order. But the room was very clean and totally charmless. Amenities included a safe, a tiny TV, a fridge and an antique hair dryer with a hose like a vacuum cleaner. And that’s it. The wardrobe had excellent drawer space but three hangers as if resigned to only short-term stays. Free wi-fi with a good signal, but a shocking lack of outlets for your devices. The marble bathtub was deep, but the towels were thin. No coffee service. The mattress was the hardest I’ve slept on in a long time; however, surprisingly, I got a good night’s rest. The streets were quiet, the heat worked. The modest room rate reflects all these things, and in the end goes a long way to my rating that the Rex is in fact a good, economical choice. They know what they’re working with and charge fairly for it. Don't expect a luxury stay, but if you want to be downtown, this is an easy place to be.

We have been to Kalamata many times but have always stayed on the seafront though we have walked past this hotel when visiting the old town. This time we had been travelling for a couple of weeks (after staying on the front for the first few nights) and decided to stay at Rex Hotel the night before our flight home.We weren't disappointed.The reception was friendly and efficient and our room on the side of the hotel was clean and quite spacious with a juliet balcony overlooking the side street. The hotel is situated in a great position for visiting the local bars and numerous tavernas. There is also a bar at the hotel itself with an outside seating area which offers waiter service. We were very pleased to discover that for a hotel of this calibre the price of the drinks was reasonable. Breakfast the following morning was excellent with a great selection of hot and cold food and good coffee. When we return to Kalamata Rex would now be our first choice if the price was right.The area is atmospheric and interesting and the hotel comfortable and very tasteful.

After having read some poor reviews we were very pleased with our stay and had no complaints with what we found. Breakfast was very good, the room was a good size and the staff helpful. The location was perfect for the city and all was easily in walking distance.

A suitable hotel so close to the historic centre and the bars and restaurants but so good if you are interested in being close to the sea. Wonderfully supportive staff but the general decor of the room could do with a facelift

We stayed here for a weekend whilst on holiday in Chrani. It`s not our first time here ( we stayed here a couple of times in 2014) but always wanted to return. A small hotel in a period building, it`s centrally located and near to the historic centre and the bus station. Extensive breakfast and very helpful staff who speak good English

Pleasant hotel with a flare of stepping a few decades back in time. Management should tackle the water damages, get rid of shower curtains and provide outlets in the room. Situated in the uppermost floor, in my bathroom started "raining" from the ceiling during a heavy storm. The breakfast is dull, but the ground floor restaurant is very nice.

This is barely a two star hotel. Basic furniture. Dirty carpet and peeling wall paper in hall. Discolored wooden floor in room. Lumpy mattress. Unhelpful front desk. We had to go to several rooms to find even barely-working air conditioning.
