5-star price,3-star service,1-star food=NOT AGAIN
Posted Dec 16, 2016
We are world travelers and our terrible experience at Bohome was memorable enough for us to take the time to write a review.
First and the worst - it seemed apparent to us that the management at Boheme has designed a service system to cease as many tip opportunities for their personnel. For example, we could have easily rolled our luggage five feet from our room to the luggage area. It was an overkill for the porter to do that on our behalf (when we declined the help) and stared at us, waiting for a tip. We are generous people, but when tipping is expected regardless of service level and it is obvious that they only care about money and not guest satisfaction at a 5-star hotel, especially in a country where tipping is not a custom, it is not a pleasant experience.
Second, their breakfast was not edible - the coffee tasted like mud and for "breakfast sausage", they gave us a hot dog. We could have done better getting McDonald's breakfast. Again, unacceptable from a 5-star hotel with 5-star rates.
Third, the service was a hit and miss. One front desk person was all smiles and eager to help, while the other barely bothered answering our questions as it was clear from her facial expression that she did not want to be there.
The location - in order to walk to Mykonos town, you will need to walk up and down an inclined road, breathing in a fair amount of carbon monoxide.
The good - we did enjoy our room and the beautiful view from the balcony.
