Double named hotel Fira Calm / Blue Horizon

Posted Jun 1, 2014
Pros: It was cheap? Nothing particularly bad.
Cons: Advertise the dual names Fira Calm/Blue Horizon. It was quite scary to arrive & think that no one knows where the hotel is, and the website map wrong
Location: Folk museum a minute's walk away. A good landmark for finding the hotel! The location is not particularly convenient for town.
I flew in to airport to find that the taxi drivers had never heard of the hotel. I showed them the map of the hotel from the accommodation provider website - it was wrong. The Google map was wrong, too. It placed the hotel in the sea! Now I understand the confusion. After 20 minutes of the lovely taxi-drivers at the taxi rank all making phone calls they discovered that my hotel also goes by the name of the Blue Horizon Hotel. I arrived at 11.40pm. It cost me $18EUR. I chose this hotel because it advertised late check-in. No one was there to greet me but a note was displayed on reception door with my name and room number on display. I went to room to find it unlocked with key awaiting me. I was expecting plastic card to operate electrics. I did not realise the metal key-ring acted in the same way - i thought that i would electrocute myself trying to insert it in the slot - so I did without electricity until I spoke to owner next day. Poor guy thinks I'm an idiot. Hotel is a good 15 minute walk uphill to scenic old town. It is a good 15 minute walk to bus terminal, too. Breakfast cost $5 EUR. It consisted of two cheese and ham toasties and drinks. Bedding and towels clean. Shower/bath stained but clean. Bed comfy. Noisy rooster, though, woke me up in early hours of the morning each day.

Pros: It was really close to the Fira center
Location: The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the town center where there are alot of restaurants, shops, and bars.
My friend and I had booked a stay at Fira Caml Hotel for 4 nights. Here is a recap of our experience • There was no 24 hour reception as descried • Nobody was there to check us in - a note with our name and room number was posted on the reception door instead • Wifi was none existant in the rooms - always switching on and off • The hotel located right next to a chicken coup - these ROOSTERS would wake us up at 4am every morning • The shower was horrible - water would get everywhere • The hotel itself is located down a steep hill where no cab will find you • Having paid online, the staff would come to your room unannounced asking you to pay them cash instead Overall our stay was quite miserable!
