“Feels like a dream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

What a marvellous place. My husband and I just felt in love with this hotel. Our room was decorated with very good taste. It was clean and the bed very comfortable. It is located in the small town of Chora, 10 minutes drive from the port. It is a 12 euro cab ride from Katapola. If you rent a car or a scooter, you will find parking close to the hotel without any problem. The owners are also more then welcome to pick you up from and to the port if necessary. We enjoy are stay very much and promise ourselves to come back next year.

We stayed 10 nights at the Emprostiada Traditional Guesthouse and it was an amazing place to stay. The room was perfect in terms of furnishings, cleaniness and service. The guest house owners are wonderful people, and so accommodating in terms of helping the guests with whatever needs they might have. I can't say enough good about this hotel and would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Any room is fantastic!

We found this to be an extremely well run hotel by very helpful and pleasant staff and ownership. The rooms (we occupied two) spotless and charming, the grounds nicely landscaped with some very nice features and the location private while also convenient to shops and restaurants. The value for money was very very good.

We arrived out of season with plans to hike some island trails. We discovered upon arrival that island bus service was limited to the school bus which didn't run when we needed it to return us to Chora from one of our hikes. No problem. The owner, upon learning of our plans said that she would pick us up at the end of our hike and return us to the hotel. She wouldn't hear of us paying for it.

Beautiful guest house with stunning rooms - very traditional greek decor, don't bother staying anywhere eles in Chora, this is THE place to be.

The accommodation was amazing (have a look at the pictures) and expertly cleaned, it felt like I was staying somewhere truly special. The location is also excellent as you can walk down one of the many small stepped alley streets into the heart of chora with lots of little street-side cafe's and restaurants as well as being easily accessible to the road if you rent a car (recommended) to visit the rest of this breath taking island. Parking on the street within 3-5 mins walk from the guest house is easy to find and safe.

The host was also very helpful, booking us a room in another pension at the port of Katapola for one night and recommended places to go to rent a car, etc...

A stay at paradise.
a castle in the castle of Chora of Amorgos.
Rooms so clean specious with the smell of Aegian islands, gives you the feeling like you are so special.
The same makes you feel Eva and Stamatis the two owners, so friendly and helpful.
It has a large yard in the front full of green and flowers.
They treat you with a breakfast homemade so delicious that you can not forget.
Transfer for and to the port is free from Stamatis.
We will visit you again for sure.
Thanks Amorgos for having such an amazing place.

Fantastic small guest house.
Top quality, perfectly designed rooms. Comfortable bed. the cleanliness of the rooms were fantastic.

And not least, the service from the owners. Everything I needed was taken care off. If I wanted to rent a scooter they made sure someone came with on to the room. When I asked to change the scooter to a car a couple of days later it was handled within a hour. barely finished breakfast.

To get back to the room and find the rose leaves formed as a heart was just heart-warming.

If you visit Amorgos stay here. You will not regret it!

Room Tip: The view from one of the balcony rooms is priceless.

Tradition, comfort, authentic, charming atmosphere, exceptional personal service are all traits perfectly assembled in THE place to stay in Chora, Amorgos, which, as a village also shares these traits. The outdoor, vine-covered pergola in the open, stone barbecue area is also perfect for group or intimate gatherings. Make your reservations asap; it has been "discovered" by those who search out special places. My compliments!

Room Tip: Just specify how many in your party.
