The village is surrounded by mountains and a long beach, no through road. However, this hotel is at a corner of two country roads. Don’t understand why so many trucks (at least sound like for the loudness) ran by all night long. The first night was sleepless even with earplugs. Be warned if you are not an exceptionally sound sleeper. The beds are very difficult to sleep on, at least in my room. It’s almost a box spring with no mattress. One of the metal rings was even broken and the tip stuck out. Luckily I was alone and could sleep on the other side of the bed. I had a sheet and a very heavy blanket, nothing in between, so difficult for the September weather. I had to use my beach towel and jacket, etc. The sheets and towels are very old, but I didn’t expect much more for the price. I was even surprised to have a frig.
A beautiful and quiet village by a huge (largest on the island?) black beach, which is very beautiful and exotic. Hotel is 5’ walk from the beach. Impressed by the bus system on the island, running to/from popular towns past midnight, and major tourist sites including red beach during day. A bus stop is right in front of this hotel. The transportation to the hotel on the first day was convenient. A 24 hr bakery and a good size grocery market are across the street. Hotel provided a frig, an electric burner and a few utensils for you to survive if on low budget. But there are so many restaurants in the village and along the beach, some are very good, that you may not want to miss. The hotel accepted credit card, which is not always the case everywhere in Greece.
