The excellent location with private beach, and the food in both the buffet and a la carte restaurants was brilliant. The room was not quite up to 5 star standard with a few rusty cracks / dents in the bathroom.
It is 4-stars hotel in fact
Great hotel. Enjoyed the beach and the pool, good food, nice room, and the sofa (water sports) was a hit with the kids. We would definitely go back!
The hotel has so much potential, but it needs a serious update. The owner needs to put some money into it and push it to the next level. I understand it was once a "hot" hotel, but it lacks any character and comfort now. Just a standard bed and bathroom. You are literally overlooking the airport so as long as the sound of planes taking off and landing doesn't bother you, then it's fine.
the evening in the hotel bar terrance was nice the bedrooms need modernisation and need to offer more in the rooms
The location was really good, the surroundings was perfect,fresh air, green trees The rooms had not been renovated for years, the air conditioning was really old
the view of the sea. The 1970's decoration, and furniture.
The location is good, the staff are pleasant and helpful. Lots of free parking available (open air and underground). Needs better maintenance. Things that don't work or are broken are not taken care of. At breakfast, items were often missing. The staff were quick to provide whatever is required, but with better training/management the inconvenience wouldn't arise in the first place.
Great food atcthe hotel which was very reasonably priced. Also enjoyed the Greek grill buffet which included Greek music and dancing.
Convenient and cheap stop over prior to catching a flight out of Corfu. 1)Noise from a children's party. 2)Aircon did not work 3)Bedroom window did not open 4) No water in minibar 5)Hotel tired and in need of refurb 5)Staff not very helpful 6) Breakfast pretty revolting - overall definitely not a 5 star hotel
beautiful view, very quiet price of drinks at the bar were outrageous
nice hotel could use some updating beds need to be updated
Location, Location, location. Good breakfast. low quality amenities in the bathroom. Furniture are old and wary.
I really enjoyed the accomodation and the location of the hotel was perfect
All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The Breakfast Buffet was fantastic!
Very accomodating staff, great breakfasts, outstanding view from room.
The staff was very helpfull. The location of the hotel was of easy access. Have coffee, tea available in the room
The hotel is very convenient for the port and staff very freindly and helpful Beds rather hard
Near the ferry
Location close to Ferry port and a short taxi to the airport. Friendly staff and excellent breakfast on the front patio Beds are very firm
The seaview. Very noisy road outside and breakfast overpriced.
We required a hotel near the ferry ports and this was ideal for that purpose. Its clean and basic. It is very basic and is not worth more than 60 euro per night.It is an ideal transit hotel would not recommend as a weeks holiday hotel.
good location for travelers ,excellent view to the sea port ,good service & acceptable prices .also parking availability .
nice place, romantic, restaurant The reception is very polite but unfortunately not fully qualify.
we thought the breakfast wast excellent. The staff very professional and helpful.. The common rooms very elegant and luxurious. the gym could be bigger
The fact that it was very close to the city of Corfu but not in a crowded area There were quite a lot of things that i did not like. Having visited many 5 stars hotels and only these summer another 2 in greek islands (Lindian Village in Rhodes and Saint John's in Mykonos) I can tell that this hotel does not deserve the 5 stars. The reasons are: 1. The facilities and generally the building is very old. The corridors remind oh hospital rather than 5 star hotel. 2. The room although it had a sea view and balcony, could not be used due to the fact that right underneath it was the kitchen and you could not even open the door from the smell. 3. The curtains in the room were not enough to keep the sun in the morning and we had to wake up every day at 7.45 as the room was east oriented. 4. The mini bar was empty 5. The towels
Beautiful location and excellent facilities; plentiful free breakfast buffet. The room was missing towels and an extra blanket (which was needed) when we arrived, but this was fixed quickly when noted to reception (though it should not have happened in the first place). The restaurant choices were limited and surprisingly not Greek. One buffet and one a la carte restaurant; limited alternatives close by outside the property.
Unfortunately the pools are the only things I can say are fabulous at this Hotel. The bed in our room was really uncomfortable. The wasps and the mosquitos are a real problem here. You will need all the anti mozzie and wasp spray to prevent being attached beside the pool or at breakfast in the restaurant. The meals and drinks were really expensive. You can however find alternative restaurants within a 10 - 15 walking distance depending on which turn you make when you come out of the hotel.
Everything was beyond our expectations. Location, breakfast, staff friendliness and of course the price thru booking.com
The place is beautiful, the view is fantastic. Some of the staff was outstanding (special mention for the dinner waiter of the swimming pool restaurant). Some times the room service was really slow.The lunch buffet is too expensive for the quality and variety it (doesn't) provides. The restaurant in the swimming pool has a good quality of food but extremely small portions for the prices!
But we had a problem with our room, it was not enough dark in our room: when the sun rises at 6.30 we were awake, some rooms were situated next to the kitchen so we heard all the kitchennoise every early morning and evening. These are 2 major problems which do not belong in a 5 star resort at all. But after complaining they changed our room, we had something much better, partly because we are member of the privilege club of Grecotel. There are much better 5 star resorts of Grecotel (even 4 stars) than this one. Rooms or more 4 star and service 5 star. Breakfast was poor, if you compare it to the breakfast of Kos Imperial Grecotel! Drinks too expensive!
Good location with beautifull panoramic views. Well maintained hotel. Although not really 5 stars according to European standards. Price of drinks and meals are extraordinary. Rental car is a must, as location is pretty remote. Atmosphere not really charming.
pool, garden,food, services, entertainment program, rooms no
location is very good
The location at the heart of historical Corfu Town would be difficult to beat and the double glazing ensured a decent night's sleep but the hard bed did not make for a comfortable night
Its excellent location at the heart of Corfu Town's social scene, good restaurants and coastal walks No proper lounge/bar (there was one but you could not see the bar!) and no resturant.
The hotel was clean and pleasant and centrally located for the old part of Corfu Town. Everything in the room worked well. The breakfast was excellent. The noise from the motorcyle park outside meant that it was actually difficult to sleep there. In addition piped music was playing outside the room all night so when the motorcyles calmed down there was still music playing.
All the services was perfect while I stay here - view, room, breakfast, staff. Also the location is really good to enjoy Old city and the other. From the room I could see the old fortress and the strada(?) park. Also the breakfast was really good than any other 5star hotel. Coffee was nespresso and had various bread. I really enjoyed. No.
The view from the high floor front corner room, clean, nicely furnitured, central location.
Excellent location. Clean. Quiet, even being in the very city center. Good breakfast. No personal touch in service. Bathroom not too comfortable. Aging room furniture.
The views of Liston and the fortress were breathe taking and location was easy walking distance to anything one might want to see, do or eat. Double bed was two separate twins pushed together and pillows uncomfortable. Also, site said full toiletries which did not include shampoo, conditioner or soap
Location Arrogant morning recepionist and impolite breakfast staff, I believe that there is no way to get a room with balcony via booking. Most of rooms do not have nice view. There is no difference in price or any notification from the bookng site or the hotel. We asked for double bed in upper floor and nice view and we got lower floor, twin bed with the worst view to a narrow corridor. No kettle, bad breakfast. No way to cancel booking via site. Hotel policy needs amendment.
Perfect location, but a little expensive. Very poor breakfast
The cleaniness, the location, pleasant staff
A haven of peace in a very busy town. Everything is done well. Room not quite big enough. Mainly English clientele.
The location is very convenient for the town centre, and the staff are excellent. The rooms are too small, and the breakfast is dull
great staff, good location in the town, pleasant garden attached to sit and have breakfast / drinks.... good, very clean rooms. always a problem to secure parking and even pull over in front of hotel when arriving by car. However, this is the typical problem throughout the center of Corfu Town!
The location was great and the staff was very accomodating. The services and food were exactly as advertised. I would recommend this hotel to others. The bathroom was very small. Although clean and updated, it was a bit challenging for two to use comfortably.
very comfortable and in a good location for exploring the town At times I had to get reception to switch the aircon on as if you opened a window the air con would switch off and could not be put back on in the room
Very nice room with high ceiling and comfortable bed. Well isolated with double glass windows, quiet at night. Breakfast a bit plain.
Attitude of the staff. Without exception, they tried to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Also the delightful garden.
The helpful and friendly staff at the reception desk and in the breakfast room. The excellent buffet breakfast in a charming garden room. The very comfortable bed. The bathroom, especially the shower, in the first room we stayed in was very small indeed - much better in the adjouning room where we stayed on the return visit.
The staff are excellent - extremely friendly and there is nothing they will not do for you. They made me feel most welcome. The hotel is surrounded by excellent restaurants and it may be an idea to offer food delivery to the rooms by one of the neighbouring restaurants.
A lovely family run hotel in an ideal location. The views from the hotel are absolutely stunning. The food is home cooked, delicious and very fairly priced. Overall, I would definately recommend the hotel to friends and family and will definately book to stay again. A wonderful holiday, in a lovely hotel, on the beautiful island of Corfu.
I was made very welcome. The staff were extremely helpful and believe in the personal touch 24/7. The restaurant was flexible and authentic - delicious food cooked fresh to order. Lovely sea view. Easy access to rest of island from regular buses that stopped right outside hotel. The road immediately outside was a slight drawback but it made for brilliant access to buses.
Very nice family run hotel. The staff and the service was excellent. The hotel did not have a swimming pool, and there were no beds on the beach. However, a 5-star hotel 500m away had a very nice swimmingpool.
The Ariti is well located in the Konani peninsula (10 euro taxi drive from the airport) with a pair of very nice local cuisine restaurants, a mini-market, a car rental place, a tourist shop and even a Starbucks within 150m or less. The hotel in front of the Ariti has a Casino and they had no trouble with one showing up. The Ariti itself is clean, spacious and what you would expect from a 3 star hotel. Ok, here is were most reviews focus on. It is really, really close to the airport and some claim that the noise if unbearable. this is not true. Yes you can hear the planes land and leave but we almost did not notice it. The pool was not functional because they were in repairs (and the tourist season was over, they are really serious about the tourist season so if you are planning to go after mid-November do not expect most tourist tours or stores to be open). There is no wifi internet, and the response to when it will be available is always tomorrow (which became the joke of the trip). So if you are in a budget or have to attend an event at the Aquis 5 star hotel and cannot afford it, then definitely stay here (it is literally in front)
a very quiet environnement in winter time no kettles available in the rooms
polite stuff, easy access to the center by car only 10 minutes, clean, comfortable rooms breakfast needs improvement
No comfort, very far from city center, no restaurant
Easy parking, polite staff, good room size, nice balcony with view of pool, spacious restaurant So close to airport that the aircraft noise was too loud and needed windows to be closed but Air con not very efficient. Fridge - black, mouldy and smelly. Toilet brush had never been bleached looked horrible. Pool not working due to too much rain and lack of chemicals
Beliggenheden midt i byen og med udsigt over havet var meget fin Værelserne var lidt slidte
Personalet var meget imødekommende. Jeg synes, at det ville være dejligt, hvis der ikke blev røget på værelserne, når man skal bruge dem til at sove i.
The manager and his wife are lovely persons, all time ready to help and to make you feel good. The hotel is on a green hill and has excellent pool.
The fact that it was a family run business made everything more personnal. Costas and Helen Brentanos were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. The location was perfect for exploring the rest of the island with a hire car and the wonderful swimming pool in the morning was a great place to plan the rest of your day.
Very nice and helpfull staff. Excellent location with magnificent view. Clean rooms. -
Everything is ok, nice, quiet, clean with very friendly owners who can help you any time. Amazing swimming pool.
The hospitality of the owner, Mr Kostas Brentanos is unforgettable.The orange and lemon trees around the apartments are impressive as well as the sea view from the balcony. The beach nearby is not as good as in the other parts of the island.
It is beatiful hotel with friendship athmosphere and good service for money it cost's.
The staff were very welcoming. We like the privacy and space of an apartment. The pool was beautiful and there was a great view of the water from the pool and the suite.
Clean and comfortable room, in a quiet area, helpful staff. Easy access to the city of Corfu by car.
Everything. Family owned. Very nice couple operating. Breathtaking views of the water. It is hard to believe that there are still places like this anymore. A/C works better that that in my car. I took a bunch of business cards to share with my coworkers. I plan on spending holiday there over and over. Only bed sheets. But the weather was perfect. Just opened up the doors on the balcony and let the warmth off the water keep the room at a good temp.
The people of the apartments were very nice. The pool was really beautifull en the view was amazing!!! The sanitary was a bit old.
