If nobody who has stayed at these places gets back to you, have you looked at TripAdvisor reviews? Many comment on Zephyros being up a steep hill. However in the Manos brochure they comment on Marietta being on a "hillside location" although it does not get these comments in the reviews.

We've never stayed at the Zephyros but stayed at the Marietta a few times. I think you will find that the Zephyros is a nicer hotel but it is quite a bit further out than Marietta. We found the Marietta to be quite basic but perfectly adequate. Marietta is about a 10 minute stroll from the main street.

Hope this helps.

Hey Princess!

Never stayed at Maietta but stayed at Zephyros 3 times.

Can not speak highly enough of Zephyros. No negatives at all. It is hillside location, but then you get stunning views, and with taxi's 5 or 6 euro from Scala town, I wouldn't worry. Just walk down the hill and get a taxi back! But you'll prob be hiring a car anyway?

Is this your first time?

I stand corrected, but thought Marietta was further out than Zeph? Zeph is up the side of Nine Muses.

I'm not a destination expert, but have been there 5 times and seen a lot, so anything you want to know.....?

Stayed at Zephyros many many times, wonderful lcation, Andreas, Vula and the family are great hosts making you feel so welcome, and there are many return guests which i think speaks volumes for the hotel

hope this helps

We have booked for Zephyros late August to attend a wedding there, can't wait. We compared the same hotels and Zephyros won for us :) xx

In terms of location I'd say Zephyros too. Marietta may be a bit closer to the centre, but is right on the main road. Zephyros is at a stunning location on the hillside, with amazing views. Yes the hill can be a slog in the height of summer, but taxi's are only 5 euros if that is a problem
