Phoenix Hotel
Ranked #6 of 12 Hotels in Zakynthos Town
Reviewed 13 September 2013 via mobile

As we were travelling to the annual St. Dennis' Day festival in Zante town on 24th of August, we decided to pre-book a hotel room in the town for the night, thereby allowing us to soak up the party atmosphere and not worry about queueing for hours for a taxi back to our resort later. Having researched on TripAdvisor prior to our holiday, we shortlisted 2 hotels, the Strada Maris and The Phoenix, both centrally located and overlooking the harbour. In the end we went for The Phoenix and we were so glad we did.

On our arrival we were given a very warm Greek welcome at reception before being shown to our room. Our room, while small, was so cosy with carpet (unusual for Greece), 24" flat screen TV with numerous channels, free air conditioning and one of the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in. It had a private balcony which overlooked the main square in the town, Solomos Square, and the Ionian Sea. We got so comfortable we were nearly ordering room service and had to drag ourselves out to the festival!

After the festival we ordered food and drinks from a great menu in the outdoor bar area at the front of the hotel(they also have tables on the square). Pizza was big, and gorgeous, and they served the nicest strawberry daiquiri around. Despite being their busiest night of the year, the staff were so friendly and engaging and the food did not take too long to arrive. The adjoining St.Mark's Square, with it's restaurants and bars, was abuzz with locals enjoying the festivities.

We were so impressed with the hotel that we enquired about booking a second night but our budget didn't allow it. We'll be better prepared next time!

We found this to be a modern, sophisticated, comfortable, spotlessly clean hotel, set in a wonderful location, serving good food and drink, with attentive, engaging staff.

The Phoenix Hotel's sister hotel, The Phoenix Beach, in nearby Tsilivi (with Anthony, best barman/showman in town!), where we stayed last year, is also highly recommended!

P.s. We had a look in the Strada Maris Hotel. Two words: No way!

Stayed here for 7 nights was meant to stay 4 but stayed an extra 3 as the hotel was amazing. Location is excellent next to solomos square. Rooms are very very clean and the bed is very comfortable. Great bar/restaurant downstairs that make amazing coffee. The guy at reception who works the afternoon shift was very friendly, helpful and made us feel welcome. Will be back next year! Found this hotel by just walking in, first went to strada hotel walked straight out and found this beauty!

Room Tip: Just book you will be very happy

Wanted a two night stay in Zante so chose this hotel from a photo on a map.

The room was ok but the en suite was very cramped, you had to back into it. How I hate those shower curtains, water went everywhere.

Breakfast was a complete disaster. Best advice is to go out and have it.

I have to say the highlight of this hotel was the bar where the best irish coffee I ever had was made!
