We arrived early in the morning at 7 am by plane on a brilliant sunny May day and wandered around the harbour and everything was still shut, it looked like the whole village was still asleep. We were booked out on next evening’s flight to Rhodes so we were looking for one night’s accommodation, but having seen the beauty of the harbour view, we were determined to get a room with harbour view, whatever the cost! Two of the three hotels on the harbour foreshore looked shut or still asleep, but the owner of Kastellorizo Hotel was up, organizing breakfast, and was willing to show us a room with a view, and what a view! Top floor, front balcony, brilliant sunshine, a suite of sorts, with a small sitting room and a large bathroom and the bedroom up front with that great balcony with the magic view.
The place was furnished with a lot of old traditional furniture and decorations, there is a bar and sitting room downstairs, and in the evening we were lucky to enjoy a piano recital by the owner playing old movie themes. We sat outside and listened at the music drifting in the night, really unforgettable. Breakfast in the morning was served outside in the paved yards between the two buildings; beautiful preserves, good coffee, professionally presented and served.
Just an overnight stay in Kastellorizo, and this great hotel, did not do justice to the place. One day we hope that we will come back again for a bit longer this time!
