    • 4.0.Fair

      In order to be fair I can comment on the positive and negative points. The cleaners were lovely and friendly and the breakfast very good. The pool bar facilities and staff were great. The rooms were a great disappointment. We did not get the room booked and had to request to move, we had a serious problem when drains were blocked resulting in us being stuck inside our appartement unable to use the facilities for most of one day. There were then serious concerns about sewage contamination and lack of cleaning.

      We enjoyed our stay at Rigas hotel. The rooms are basic but clean. The hotel pool area is nice even though the pool is smallish (fine for kids to play in). There was a wide selection of food for breakfast and a different dish made fresh every say (crepes, donuts, fried eggs). The staff were really friendly and helpful. The hotel location is perfect: 5-6 minute walk to the port and all Skopelos town bars and restaurants, and there is a bus stop right by it for the bus that takes you to all the beaches. The Skopelos town beach is 4 minutes walk away.

      Lovely setting and peaceful round the pool. We supposedly were upgraded but the room was sweltering the air con Dutton’s g the night flicked off every 20 mins it was a lift space kind of room which was lovely but unbearably hot.

      The most amazing was the people of this hotel. Always eager, cordial, smiling, they explained everything about the island and make your vacation delighful. The rooms are comfortable, clean and decent for a 3 star hotel. Very good breakfast and internet. Highly reccommended.

      It was difficult to find an open hotel in Skopelos in February. Fortunately, the Rigas Hotel is open year round. They gave me a spacious studio with very good internet and quite good sleeping.The bed is very warm, because of the electric mattress pad. Very clean and decent for 3-star accommodation. Employees are gentle and helpful. I had a very pleasant stay and I will definitely return for a summer vacation.

    • 6.0.Good

      Great promise, but disappointing in the delivery.

      The hotel has some lovely areas and some very tired areas. We booked a room with rainfall shower, spacious balcony/terrace and blackout curtains and we were allocated a very tired room, with a very narrow walkway for a terrace, a handheld shower over a half bath and definitely not blackout curtains. The bed was not as promised, and didn't have premium bedding as promised. The pool area was not inviting, or friendly to English guests. It seems to be geared up for Greek guests only, which was disappointing, given it's potential. On a positive, the breakfast was very good.

      Mug på værelset

      Selvom vi ankom to timer efter check-in startede, var der ikke noget værelse klar. Vi blev guidet ud for at vente ved poolen, vi vi fik en velkomstdrink. Værelset vi fik en halv time senere havde så meget mug, at vi var ved at blive kvalt, da vi trådte ind ad døren. Vi lod dør og vinduer stå åbne mens vi var ude og se byen og derfor klarede vi os lige gennem den ene nat på hotellet.

      Υπέροχο, φιλικό, άψογη εξυπηρέτηση

      Μείναμε πολύ ευχαριστημένοι από τη διαμονή μας. Το δωμάτιο (διαμέρισμα με ιδιωτική πισίνα) ήταν όπως ακριβώς στις φωτογραφίες και το πρωινό ήταν πολύ καλό. Αυτό που μας άρεσε πιο πολύ ήταν το πολύ εξυπηρετικό προσωπικό, που σε έκανε να νιώθεις πολύ ευπρόσδεκτος, από τη ρεσεψιόν, μέχρι το προσωπικό στην πισίνα και το προσωπικό καθαριότητας. Επίσης, πολύ σημαντικό για εμάς, το ξενοδοχείο είναι πραγματικά pet friendly, σε αντίθεση με άλλα ξενοδοχεία που δέχονται σκυλιά, αλλά σε κοιτούν "με μισό μάτι", εδώ όλοι λάτρεψαν τη μικρή μου σκυλίτσα (και τους λάτρεψε κι αυτή!). Ακόμη εντύπωση μου έκανε πως κατά το check in, ένας υπάλληλος έρχεται να σε βοηθήσει με τις αποσκευές από το αυτοκίνητο, που ούτε σε 5στερα ξενοδοχεία δεν το έχω δει και σε συνοδεύει στο δωμάτιό σου. Τέλος, το ξενοδοχείο είναι πάρα πολύ κοντά στο κέντρο της Χώρας, σε 5-7 λεπτά με τα πόδια, αλλά σε ένα ήσυχο σημείο και μέσα σε υπέροχους καταπράσινους κήπους, ιδανικό για χαλάρωση. Νομίζω πως είναι από τις καλύτερες επιλογές στη Σκόπελο και value for money και θα είναι η επιλογή μου αν /όταν ξαναεπισκεφθώ το νησί.
