How to Get There
We returned to Dimitri this year for a few days either side of a week sailing with Greek Sails. We were greeted by the new manager Alex and found everything just as we recalled. The towelling robes were no longer provided but that didn’t matter- the breakfast was much better than last year and the additional of an evening bar with cocktails is a brilliant idea. The beds are great and shower really good. As we had to catch the 8am ferry back to Athens at the end of our stay I asked if we could have some bread, cheese and fruit for breakfast as we would be leaving before it was laid out on the rooftop. Alex said it would be put in our room fridge between 7-9.30 but when we returned to our room there was nothing - possibly put in the wrong room?? We will definitely be back as it’s such a great location and very quiet.
We wanted a good spot for a cocktail and the terrace offers a panoramic view of the city. We were excited as it looked very promising and the decor was good. We ordered and waited for about 45 mins before we got our drinks. It is a family business with the wife cooking and the mother doing the PR. We sat at a corner to get some quite but they were talking to eacher other from the corners of the terrace not caring that there were customers there. At the end, as we didn't enjoy the atmosphere we asked for the bill for which we had to wait as the wife/owner did not know how to use the cashier and we had to wait for the actual waiter to come.
It is a shame that such a nice place is badly run.
Stayed here after a week of sailing. Wonderful, quiet location. About 6 minutes walk to the ferry pier and the Main Street. Rooftop bar and breakfast areas has amazing views. Sunset especially. Nice comfy and air conditioned room. I had a balcony to the back of the hotel. Very helpful and friendly staff.
