Cotommatae Hydra 1810
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Hydra Town
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 June 2014

This most be Hydras most beautyful hotell. We have stayed twice at the Cotommatae and both turned out perfectly.
Both times we have been welcommed and served icewater and a traditional dessert from Hydra, cherrys in syrup. A nice gesture, one feels really welcommed.
First time, august 2013, we stayed in the Kalo Domatio. This room has a 180 degree view from the windows and the door. The room is so elegant and cool with the breeze through the windows. Outside, at the terrace, there are sofas and chairs where you can sitt and enjoy the view of the city and relax.
Second time, june 2014, we were offered the Peristeronas Suite, which has a private outdoor terrace and a private jacuzzi. Maybe the best room at the mansion.
All over, there are small spaces with seatings where one can relax and enjoy. The garden where all the lights are lit when it gets dark is simply gorgeous.
Giannis and Illiana and the rest of the staff are so friendly and cheerful and the owner are happy to tell the story of the mansion showing photos from before and after, telling how the builiding was practicly taken apart and rebuilt, with every tile on its right place. Everywhere there are original and genuin paintings and furnitures. They have managed to give the feeling of being a guest in an old mansion rather than a guest in a hotell, without compromising the feeling of luxury and relaxation.

Oh my...not knowing what to expect, my husband and I could not believe how lucky we were choosing the Cotommatae.
Giannis could run for Mayor! He was so knowledgeable and very, very helpful. The updated ammenaties blended beautifully with the many old world treasures found at this unique spot.
We absolutely loved our stay. Do not miss it!

My husband and I had the great pleasure of staying at Cotommatae 1810 during our two night stay on Hydra. The property has been recently restored with modern amenities but holds all it's former charm. It is on the Historic Hotels of Europe list for good reason. The reception staff were so friendly. When we arrived we were given some water and some cherries which were delicious! After checking in we were shown to our room which is the double room right in the front with spectacular 180 degree views from two windows and the open door. The breeze through the room is magical and the sunlight so refreshing. We learned that the bed was original to the house and was over 200 years old with a new mattress of course which was very comfortable. The bathroom had a fantastic rainhead shower and was well appointed. The towels were soft and fluffy and they even gave us bath robes! The breakfast was incredible, such a large variety and eating on the terrace was truly magical. We even got to meet the owner one day while we were having breakfast. We talked to him for quite some time and we taken in by all his stories! The location is perfectly close to the port where there are plenty of restaurants. There is free wifi and it is very fast. I've stayed in many hotels during my travels but I must say this is hands down the best room I've ever been in, pure relaxation. I hope I get to visit Cotommatae again some day!

Room Tip: I loved our double room in the front of the hotel!

We had the pleasure of staying at this beautifully and authentically restored old family mansion for 8 days. This old family home has been restored with all modern conveniences, yet without sacrificing its historical qualities. We could not fault our room in any way. It was cleaned and serviced every day with quality linen and personal items.

The breakfast was buffet style consisting of ample variety to meet most tastes, served on the beautiful terrace until 12:30.
Giannis and Illianna the hotel managers, as well as the household staff. did all they could to make our stay as comfortable and pleasant in a very friendly manner.

During our stay we had the privilege of meeting some of the gracious and charming descendants of the original family who still own the hotel. As we showed interest in their beautiful home, they were happy to go to great lengths to explain in detail the family history which is exceptionally displayed in the huge reception area in the form of paintings, furniture, photographs and antique items.
This hotel is perfectly located only minutes from the port, but far enough away to have total peace and quiet.
If you are looking for an exceptional establishment on the unique island of Hydra then please give Cotommatae 1810 your serious consideration.

Stayed for 3 nights end of May 2014 at the "Peristeronas" suite (the one with the outdoor private jacuzzi). The property is relatively new so everyhting is shiny and bright. Most of all you get the feeling that everything is where it is supposed to be, from the smal fridge to the lamp to the bathroom to the towels and the TV. All in all it was a five-star stay. A tiny-small point for consideration is the breakfast, I would prefer it to be more "up-to-the-level" of the hotel (don't get me wrong, it has great variety and good taste, but not extraordinary as the rest of the facilities and personnel). Ydra is great to relax from cars and noise for 3 days, avoid July and August though. We had good weather and so we were able to swim but also not that hot so that we could hike around.

We - two ladies of a certain age, stayed 3 nights in this magnificent old patrician mansion, decorated in the grand old style, With lots of interesting details and things to look at. Our room was lovely, With a gallery for the huge and comfortable double bed, and another bed downstairs.
All the materials are high class, the bathroom walls very original. All around are terrasses for sunbathing and relaxing, very nicely furnished. The breakfast included in the price was super, served on a sunny terrace. There is even a tortoise in the garden! The location is perfect, just about 5 minutes walk from the busy port, not too steep, and in a calm and peaceful side street.Very friendly and helpful personnel too.
Hydra is the Perfect Place for dong absolutely nothing in great style, with some super restaurants, in the harbour and on the seaside, and some very elegant shops for jewellery and design.
Been there 4 times before, and it has bareley changed since the first time, 30 years ago!
I will come back again - and again ...

Beautiful hotel in the center of town just a short walk from the port. Stayed in the small but very comfortable room on your right as you walk into the reception area. Delicious breakfast. No hot, or at times any, water during our stay (island wide issue supposedly), but that didn't dampen our visit too much. Hydra itself is an absolutely charming car free island filled with cats and spectacular scenery and it is so so close to Athens (only 45 minutes ferry ride away). I definitely recommend Hydra and although I'm sure there is more than one charming hotel on the island, this one has to be near the top of the list.

We traveled there at the beginning of November 2013, had prefect weather, even able to swim, mostly locals and just a handful of tourists on the island.
