All was fine. Staff at bar not very speedy. Resteraunt staff were good. Rooms getting a little tired, could use some TLC. No coffee provided in room only tea.

Ruhiges Hotel für Etappenhalt
Das Giritale Hotel, dass schon etwas bejahrt ist, wird von Peronen besucht, die auf der Durchreise in den Osten der Insel sind und die für die Übernachtung nicht allzu viel ausgeben wollen. Hier erhalen sie für wenig Geld, was sie erwarten: angemessener Komfort und Ruhe. Etwas bemühend sind die späten Abendessenszeiten. Es ist dort schon sehr früh dunkel und ich fand es müssig, bis 19.30 zu warten. Andererseits gibt es Frühstück nur bis 09.00.

Hôtel parfait pour un passage de 1 à deux jours. Très confortable avec vue magnifique. Mais au milieu de rien. Chambre propre et très spécieuse.
