Pros: The female receptionist was very sweet but spoke very little English. The male receptionist was extremely helpful and spoke English well. He helped me find an ATM nearby and looked up the bus schedules for me. He was personable and mentioned that he didn't see me at breakfast my first day, which was nice that he noticed!
The hotel is right on a rocky beach, so if you don't like sand, congrats! It is extremely rocky, however and I would recommend water shoes. I also nearly walked into a colony of sea urchins near the shore so beware! There are plenty of cheap little restaurants along the seaside as well as a supermarket about 1 kilometer away. I had only planned to stay for one night but I ended up staying an extra night.
Cons: The location! It's about 6 miles from the nearest train station and 7 from Corinth, the nearest city. You can get a bus but the station, timetables, and destinations are pretty difficult to figure out. When I finally found a station in Corinth, I had to wait 1 hr. 45 mins. for the next bus. The same happened when I left the hotel. All in all, you could call a taxi, but the location is pretty inconvenient for just a one-night stay. I would suggest planning to stay a couple of nights.
Enjoy your visit to Corinth with a stay at Sea View. You can unwind with a drink at the bar/lounge, and continental breakfast is available daily. Other highlights include a garden, and rooms offer furnished balconies and LED TVs.
