Convenient location is the only positive feature
Posted Aug 19, 2015 on Hotels
Akti Hotel is very conveniently situated by the new Harbor of Skiathos, but beyond its location, it is very basic hotel.
We would not stay there again based on the following:
- The wifi was abysmal. We had to stand at the reception area on the first floor to get any connectivity.
- There weren't any outlets in the room to charge our phones / devices. (Had to unplug a lamp for one.)
- Bathroom issues: tiny shower, with low water pressure, and without a hook for the shower head, making for very inconvenient and uncomfortable showers. Also, there were no toiletries beyond bar soap, and when we requested some, the manager, Demetris, begrudgingly gave us some complimentary shampoo and body wash and directed us to the nearby supermarket to purchase our own.
- As you may gather from the above, the manager was not particularly kind or accommodating. He seemed to be primarily concerned with the travel agency running from the ground floor of the Hotel, and could be heard yelling on the phone.
