Good Transport Links

Posted Sep 4, 2015 on Hotels
Very quick entry into Greece and a short 7€ taxi ride from the airport to Hotel Atki right on the waterfront. Unfortunately my room was facing the other way onto an alley. Shower only had hand held and no shampoo. Very small so hand held is probably best. At least it had taps so you don't turn off the water every time you turn round. You just jab yourself in the side and spray water all over the bathroom. Still, clean and functional. Very very slow internet first day, none existent there after. TV was terrestrial digital with poor reception. Mainly Greek TV and radio but also BBC News - not that you could really watch it given the reception. Very noisy at night. The cobbled alley behind makes for a full orchestra of scooters and suitcases. Even the neighbours talking and the sound from the bars from the foreshore manage to carry till 6am. With the window closed it is bearable but hot unless you can get the aircon working (another thing to ask the owner about when you go to complain about the lost wifi.). Still, most of the bars and restaurants have wifi and if you are a BT customer who has set up Fon in the UK you can use that here around the shopping street. Look for OTE Wifi Fon and log in with your usual Fon credentials. I booked here as it was handy to the port for my ferry to Alonissos. Also right by the bus stop for day trips up the coast. So spend the night and then get out of there as soon as possible.

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.

Great location

Posted Aug 26, 2014
In one of the best locations on the island- close to everything you need including restaurants and transport options and a great little supermarket next door - just a great spot ! Only issue is the shower which is terrible - small with a shower curtain that spills water everywhere and not even a hook to hold the shower head. Having a shower was painful !!! Apart from the shower we were quite happy and would stay again at Akti

Town Hotel

Posted Jun 20, 2014
Pros: Very clean and pleasant staff. The manager Dimitris Vassalios was very kind and helpful. The air conditioning wass good - very quiet.
Cons: For me personally - a softer mattress.
Location: You can walk along the road and watch the planes come in and out they fly very low over the harbour. Lots of choice for places to eat.
We had previously stayed in Aghia Paraskavi but found ourselves gravitating to the town in the evenings. We therefore decided that this hotel would be good for us. The location is good restaurants, shops etc all withing short walking distance. Plenty to watch from the hotel balcony. Traffic is a little noisy but this is to be expected in a hotel with this location.

Εξαιρετική τοποθεσία

Posted Aug 1, 2013 on Hotels
Μόνο αρνητικό η μη καθημερινή καθαριότητα του δωματίου και η μη αλλαγή στα σεντόνια των κρεβατιών ( 2 από τις 5 μέρες δεν καθαρίστηκε το δωμάτιο). εξαιρετική τιμή για την ποιότητα του ξενοδοχείου. Ίσως η καλύτερη τοποθεσία στο κέντρο της Σκιάθου. Ωραία κλιματιζόμενα δωμάτια με τηλεόραση και καθαρές ντουζιέρες. Πολύ εξυπηρετικοί και ευγενικοί οι υπάλληλοι του ξενοδοχείου.
