We stayed for three days during a business trip. Excellent facilities and services from a very hospitable personnel. The location is great at the heart of Pelion allowing you to see a great part of it. Definately recommended.

We stayed in an Executive Twin room last weekend (21-23 October). The room was very clean, its layout is very functional with a plethora of power sockets, surely the decoration is aesthetically pleasing, the bed was very comfortable and of high quality, the linen and pillows were of good quality too. The shower and the whole bathroom is very good...

This is a lovely hotel in the mountains above Volos. The rooms are large. The beds are very comfortable and we had a good nights sleep. The bathroom and shower are also very good. Breakfast was also good with a nice selection of food. There is free Wifi at the hotel. There was one problem- there are no English channels...

The new renovated hotel is situated near the center of Portaria. It has also an underground parking but have to drive on an old stone paved narrow street to get there. The hotel is modern and has all facilities. Its rooms are very nice with wonderful views of Volos and its bay. The breakfast is good. The staff is friendly...

Stayed in a family room, nicely decorated, clean with good bedding but some details overlooked.nice views, but a bit dark. Varied and abundant breakfast but average quality items. Very nice and clean pool with no chlorine smell. Elevator from the parking area straight to the rooms a bonus. By the way the road to the hotel is really rough. No...

I visited the hotel with my wife for the orthodox Easter days. The whole stay was full of unfortunate events: breakfast was fake, room insulation was bad, booking tactics were amateur, pricing was a gambling. I did not wonder when I found out later on, that the owner's main activity is in the business of hygiene products, bath tubes and...

Overall very satisfied with our stay here. The room was great and the view as well. Great cooling/heating system, fast internet, comfortable beds and very clean. The service was a bit slow but then again everything is in Pilion so not a big deal. The breakfast was disappointing especially considering the nightly rate we paid. Extra advantage is the parking...
