From the moment you arrive to be warmly greeted by Alexandra and Vassilis you will realise this hotel is much more than what its website led you to believe.
With their distinct architectural passion, cosmopolitan flair, attention to detail coupled with their desire to make their hotel your home; it is no wonder we had a mind blowing experience from the moment our taxi dropped us off. The hotel rooms are big, modern and well maintained. It being less than a 5 minute walk from the centre of town, yet ever so slightly up the hill, the hotel is well located and provides a great view over the bay, which at sunset (with or without their to die for cocktails) is breathtaking.
Alexandra and Vassilis (and their staff) were extremely attentive, yet genuinely warm. The 'art hotel' theme is clever. The library (more like a drawing room filled with a great mix of art and books) is the perfect oasis to escape to on those days when you've had enough beach.
I have stayed in many different hotels in Greece over many years - Krinos is most definitely my best Greek hotel experience.
Take their advice and let them arrange you a hire car for a day or two.
