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.
