A good, family-run hotel located in the small, quiet village of Monodendri. We stayed in April, which is considered "out of season" and we were offered lovely single rooms both with balconies and en suite bathrooms, for only 25 Euro a night, with a substantial buffet breakfast thrown in. The owners were friendly and helpful. Most people will be visiting to walk the Vikos Gorge, and the best option is to ask the hotel owners to arrange a taxi early in the morning to Vikos, costing 30 Euro, and then spending the day descending into another world (and laboriously clambering out back up to Monodendri at the end of the day). We also asked the hotel owners if they would cook us Kleftiko one night, and to their credit they produced a meal that was certainly authentic and using only very local ingredients. If you're there with a car, I'd recommend driving a few more kilometres up the road beyond the village to see the "Stone Forest" and also Vikos Gorge viewpoint. Both of these are easy to find, and are both stunning to see. I would gladly have stayed at this hotel for several more days, unfortunately we had a plane to catch.
