This hotel is a gem. If you look for something fancy look somewhere else, but if you need a convenient and modern family-run hotel you will get here everything you need, on top of a very friendly and English speaking staff and a delicious breakfast.

The hotel room itself (has a separate lounge area which is rare), breakfast, service and location were great, however we encountered a problem on check in when we were allocated a room without a balcony. On the booking site hotels.com we specifically booked a room with a balcony (and paid 10 euros extra for this) as the site was showing...

About the problem with the reservation that you mentioned, in the check in we informed you about everything about our facilities as well as the breakfast price (that is 6 euro per person and its optional). Also we informed you that it was the last room that we had available (one of our best rooms) that is without balcony. We...

Very good place to stay while in Nafplio. Great location, very nice staff, comfortable and clean. Two minutes to the bus station, the Palamidi castle stairways and the center. And the breakfast is sooooo yummy. You should taste the orange pie prepared by Sonia :))

We enjoyed 5 days in beautiful Nafplio and could not have chosen a better home for our stay. We were in room 11, which is on the top floor: the lift goes to the third floor where you enter through the door and climb a flight of stairs to reach the accommodation. It consists of a small sitting room (or...

I stayed with my boyfriend for 2 nights in a superior room on the 2nd floor. (+) Clean, enough room for two people, good facilities, nice decoration in general, very good location, sweet external patio on the ground floor, homemade (!) tasty local breakfast. (-) Difficult parking space (but it's noted considering the structure of the town), too small elevator.

The owners and all the staff of Pension Dafni were so welcoming, friendly and particularly accomodating to our 3 teenage children. Our 2 rooms were comfortable, clean and cosy and the makeup service every morning was impeccable. The piece de resistance is their breakfast, which at €5pp is a complete bargain - I would pay that for the freshly squeezed...

Very good location, quiet but near the centre and easy to reach, comfortable room though short on storage space and with unappealing lighting (change to LEDs would sort that out), large balcony with view towards the old town. Pleasant staff. Didn't try the breakfasts.

Well, if you haven't previously visited Nafplio, then you are in for a treat. A great waterfront, tremendous character, good restaurants- and close to some historic sites- Epidavros definitely recommended. Pension Dafni is well positioned to have easy walking access to the old town. We stayed in the upper floor suite with a pleasant balcony and views to the waterfront....

Lovely room with balcony. We found the location perfect. The hosts were so hospitable and justifiably took pride in their rooms and food. You should definitely take the breakfast option; it is a bargain.
