“Good hotel, Good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

Hotel Minoa is situated just a few yards from the port at Katapola. For us it was a perfect location and the stay was excellent. The service was also very nice and the owner brought us fresh figs from his garden one morning for breakfast-yum.
Rooms are very pleasant indeed and we would certainly stay again.

This is a very nice hotel to stay. It is in the centre of the port, should you are interested in something like that, which people may find a bit noisy.
Regarding room, it was very clean, with fresh towels and sheets on a daily basis. free wifi provided too.
Owners are really polite and willing to help you or guide you.
Katapola, the port is really nice place, much better that Aigiali, the second port, but i wouldnt stay there next time i visited Amorgos. Instead i would recomend renting a room in Chora of Amorgos'.

Finally, i found it really expensive, as i paid 85€ per night during 15 of August (greek holiday-high season).

Fabulous welcome and well thought out information chat on the island greeted our arrival at this gorgeous little hotel. Our room was spacious with the kind of balcony you can only dream of when you have booked a room over looking a harbour. The staff could not do enough for us, including retrieving various items of washing that blew off our balcony. Following the advice of the welcome chat we found some total gems on the island that the usual tourist trail would have missed. If I had one criticism it would be that the shower was a bit of a challenge since it was tiny and the shower head had to be hand held since not attached to the wall. Not a big drama except for girlies on summer holiday, it made the whole leg shaving etc a bit of a challenge! This did not however detract from a stunning room, an ideally located hotel and hosts who made you feel like family! We were very sad to leave!

Husband writes....if you go to Greek Island make it Amorgos!

Due to poor planning on our side, we only managed to find a room for one night in Katapoula, at the Minoa. Located right on the ferry landing, it is very conveniently situated. The room was very nice, with a balcony (no view to speak of, though) and a fridge. The price was perhaps a bit stiff (85 € for a double), although that might be expected in august. The service, however, is what made us want to review favourably. The hostess was extremely helpful in helping us locate our next stay, and made calls to all nearby hotels until she found an availability. The next morning, she sat down with us and gave us excellent information on the island over complimentary coffee. Stay at the Minoa, but book ahead!

We stayed for 6 nights, enjoying a view over the Port. Our ferry docked about 60 metres from the Hotel. Choice of supermarkets, shops and restaurants within 2 minutes and the bus stop is 5 minutes away. Good island for walking. Fresh fish is not cheap, but good quality.
Owner ever present and staff excellent.
There is no swimming pool, but plenty of beaches.

Room Tip: One with a port/ sea view.

Nice little hotel, with great staff. Excellent breakfast for 7 euros ! Rooms are simple but very clean and spacious, with view on the port or on gardens. Very good value for money. Wi fi connection. Excellent location to explore Amorgos.

We had a very long detour to get to Amorgos and I had emailed Stamatis at Hotel Minoa that we would be arriving in the wee hours of the morning. He very kindly organized a taxi for us.
After travelling from Santorini via Naxos then taking the 11 pm ferry, we finally arrived at 2.45 am. at Aegeli but our Hotel was a 20 minute taxi ride to the Katapola port as I had thought we were taking the fast ferry that landed at Katapola....but it was cancelled from Santorini. It had been windy so the ferry was slower and took ages. Poppy was there at the Hotel to greet us. What a breath of fresh air. After apologizing for keeping her up so late, we finally settled into to our room which was up one level and to the front of the Hotel with a lovely balcony overlooking the front cafe and it had sea views.

The room was very spacious and had another single bed in it as well. It was lovely to sit on the balcony for drinkies in the afternoon, however it was even nicer to go down stairs to the sweet shop and sit in the cafe and try to decide which lovely greek and other type of sweet you wanted to try. We met some other lovely guests here as well. This is the area where they served a lovely home style breakfast in the mornings.
This family run Hotel was very convenient to everthing in Katapola especially if you are taking the ferry as we did at 6 am as the Hotel is right there. The Hotel was very quiet and we did not hear any noise from the port at all...as it is a few metres away.
All the staff were so friendly and very helpful with hints and tips about exploring the Island. They made us feel at home and treated us as part of the family. Thank you so much.
