“Great rooms, but with lack of the parking, pricey though...”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

Nicely placed hotel, not with a great view (only from some rooms), and approx. within a 10 minutes drive from Makrinitsa village and 15 minutes from Portaria village.

Nicely set rooms apart, very well operating heat, fireplace and comfortable bed. Huge bathroom.
They have a two-level balcony accessible to the visitors, which is excellent - but during only summer as during winter you cannot stand for a long time time out there - very cold in the mountain.

The only negatives? Two actually - there is NO parking space, so if you are lucky enough, you can park on the road ~ 100 meters lower and you sleep on your prayers that no drunk drivers runs onto your car during the nighty (you will find your car after, approx. 200meters down the clif) and the lack of information that the hotel is situated about 3-5 minutes walk into a rock-paved "pavement" which is actually not accessible by elderly, people with disabilities, or even people holding big luggage.

Please let me also take special note to the others' reviews. There is NO way you can stand up for a room within the village of Makrinitsa or Portaria. The villages are so full with people during holidays, winter-breaks and national-bank holidays that once (and if) you manage to park your car into the village area, you CANNOT un-park it until the day you leave. It will be either blocked, crashed, smashed, or, in the best case senario, when you come back, you will not be able to park it again at the same space. Someone else will have taken it.
Therefore, in terms of location it is better to live just outside the village area.

Although it was a quiet hotel, and quite clean, the owners don't know what hospitality means. For example, the owner argued on the telephone in front of the customers, whithout going somewhere else where we couldn't hear; she didn't care.
Also, the hotel is not easily accesible and has no parking.
The money is too much for what it offers. Don't worth it.

Although the rooms are clean and in good condition, the service is the worst I have ever experienced. The people who run this family owned hotel have teribble manners and no idea regarding proper hospitality. They are rude and not helpfull at all. Just a small example; when we kindly asked them whether they could help us with our luggage they were hesitant and replayed that they will help only because they did not have another choice!!

In addition, the hotel is outside the village. Therefore if the weather is bad you may find yourself isolated there.

In general I would strongly recommend you to avoid this property and prefer staying somewhere else!!
