I stayed there for the second time recently, the purpose of my visit being skiing in the nearby pistes of Mount Parnassos, but avoid paying the extortionate rates of the "alpine" resort of Arachova.
The hotel has a very promising lobby, with a very welcoming fireplace. The rooms are rather small and basic with outdated decoration. However, they are tidy, clean, well maintained and for all that matters to me, very satisfactory for a 1 or 2 night accomodation. The breakfast was basic but of good quality and, really, it was enough to give me the right boost for a day of skiing: white bread, honey-jam-butter, boiled eggs, cereals, ham&cheese, biscuits, 2 types of cake, 4 types of juice (the long life one of course;not fresh). The staff were very friendly and polite.
The only complaint I have is that the walls are thin as paper. Coming back from a day's skiing I wanted to have a little nap before heading to the apres-ski hotspots, but the ladies next door seemed to have a funny story competition going on and were laughing endlessly. Too bad the walls were not thin enough for me to hear the jokes too...
With the above in mind, my conclusions are:
1. I will definitely return to this hotel for my next skiing trips (as I have already done)
2. I would recommend it to anyone (tourist or skier) who is on a small budget and who needs decent and practical accomodation for a couple of days, but not luxury.
