The only good point: it's cheap and the cleaning lady is very nice BUT
Our request for a check-in before 3 p.m. and a quiet room was not answered.
The owner even showed up half an hour late and trudged past us without saying a word. The registration was just as friendly as I imagine an interrogation at the KGB. Extremely arrogant and unfriendly this person, I've never seen anything like it in Greece!
The booked room clearly had a view towards the back of the courtyard and church, so it shouldn't be a problem. The room we got, however, instead of a lounge with a couch, had 2 bedrooms and a balcony facing an extremely noisy main street intersection where buses and large trucks drive. That was not the room we booked! On the balcony it was not possible to talk normally without almost having to scream.
After one night and a subsequent complaint, we were offered another room, this was also not the room we had booked. The couch in it was totally worn out, unusable! and it was just as loud on the balcony as this room was facing the street. When asked about the booked room, we were told that this room was occupied.
We were also denied a cancellation. So we left without an agreement and lost the rest of the paid nights.
If you don't care about the noise, you can stay here, but never longer than 1 night.
Better pay a little bit more and look for a hotel where you are welcome as a guest and are treated that way.
By the way, all balcony doors had signs of burglary and had already been pried open from the outside.
Our stay at the fantasia pretty much echoes the other poor reviews of these apartments. The building is in a decent location close to the town and restaurants so getting about is easy, the rooms are basic and tidy and although the bathroom was tiny it was reasonably clean and modern with an enclosed shower. The bedrooms are large and have free air conditioning, the beds however are typical of cheap Greek hotels and very hard, if your used to a soft bed be prepared for sleepless nights and waking up stiff from sleeping on what feels like concrete as the beds do not have sprung bed slats, they are just stiff wooden slats. There is no reception, on arrival we called the owners who turned up about 20 minutes later to let us into our room, which we expected after reading the other reviews, the maid service however was terrible. Our rooms were not cleaned every day, in fact the cleaning stopped after a couple of days and we eventually had to call the owners to send someone to get clean towels and empty the bins, no apologies no explanation. The restaurant below the apartments is no longer there, it's all boarded up and there is a nice skip in its place. The double glazing keeps out most of the traffic noise as you are on a 5 way intersection. On leaving you have to vacate your room at 12.30, we had an night flight so needed somewhere to store our luggage for the afternoon, we asked the owners if there was anywhere, they said no but we could pay extra to keep the rooms until 6pm. So take that into consideration. Overall.... you get what you pay for, ideal if you want a cheap place to stay and are prepared to put up with a few issues.
The main advantage of Fantasia Hotel Apts is its cheapness. Besides, the apartment as such was good - spacious, had a kitchenette, etc.
Unfortunately, all the angry words written by other reviewers proved to be true. (a) It is a noisy place; (b) There is no reception desk in the hotel, and the hostess is elusive. We came (at 22:15) to the hotel, and, seemingly, there was not a single living soul in it. The hostess came in 10 or 15 minutes after, and the story had a good end. Imagine another situation: we have a ferry to another island in an hour and something, so we want to pick up our luggage that we left in the storage of Fantasia. However the hostess is not taking telephone, neither she is returning calls. It was the cleaning woman (who knew three phrases in English) who came to our rescue, and we could take our things. (c) The "hotel" looks like a dead house: the cafeteria in the ground floor (look at the photo) does not exist any more - the ground floor is boarded up, the entrance is from a backside door, and nobody can guess that this building is a hotel.
Our advice to the travelers: prepare to pay three or four euros more per night and book a room in a normal hotel.
