6/10 Good

More hype than substance
The double rooms are a bit small. I ordered coffee for breakfast and the staff provided me with caps that were rinsed with water (I didn’t see them use soap) and my cop had sugar crust from the prior guest stuck to the bottom. The rest of the staff were very helpful. The vibe is great, but the actual facilities don’t warrant the price.

Perfect Escape in Pana
Selina was a perfect place to stay in Pana! It was right in the heart of the town so walking everywhere was very easy! The staff was very fun and helpful and the entire place was designed to make you feel welcome! This is more of a co-working, nomad style place rather than a traditional hotel which makes it great for solo travelers or those wanting to meet other people in the common area. Both the hotel and town have tons of activities so it is easy to come for a few days and want to stay for more! when in doubt... book that extra night in this amazing place!

I had a lovely stay a gorgeous room, but the breakfast was awful. It was not cooked properly. I had both offerings and they were both completely undercooked. Other than that I had a great time.

2/10 Poor

Facilities were good, but the staff was not helpful at all. During my whole stay, the guest next to me played loud music (all night and early morning). I could not sleep at all. I talked directly to reception and they did nothing, they were completely indifferent.
