“Fabulous place!”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the Kastro for a long weekend.

The hotel is situated within the castle walls and an ideal position for getting out and about. It is a short walk from the boat station where for just €2 you can take a trip to Ali Pasha's Island - a must visit.

The hotel is spotlessly clean. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast is huge and sets you up for the day. They provide a parking permit which allows you to park within the castle walls.

Highly recommended!

We stayed for one night and found Hotel Kastro was excellent for its category. It is a traditional property tastefully converted to a charming guesthouse. The rooms are clean and comfortable and lovingly renovated with attention paid to keeping the character of the building. Its location serves as an ideal base for exploring the city, the sights within the castle and the lake, especially as it offers free parking. The staff was very helpful and courteous, always smiling! The breakfast was fresh, home made (hard boiled eggs, toasted sandwiches, greek traditional pies, jam and bread, greek sweet (halvas)), tasty and filling. The bathroom products supplied are Korres. The free WiFi signal was strong and available everywhere in the property. The only minus is that the no smoking policy is not strictly adhered to in the rooms. I would highly recommend this guesthouse and would definitely return should we visit Ioannina again.

In the centre of Ioannina, in the old city. You can feel the vibe of the Ottoman times. Very nicely decorated rooms, very clean, helpful staff, basic breakfast. When I visit Ioannina I prefer staying in this part of the city in small hotels like this. I stayed in the big room of the second floor, that is very spacious. The other ones are smaller.

I spend a night there with my wife and really liked it. It is a old style hotel right inside the castle. The rooms where very clean and the hosts were very polite. If I visit again Ioannina i will go bak to this hotel. The hotel is near the Byzantine museum and you dont need a car to visit the old sity. The price was ok.

We spent 5 nights in Ioannina over Xmas. Kastro is located within the old walled town. It has plenty of parking both in front of the Hotel and nearby, which is unusual in the walled district. This meant we could forget about our car and walk pretty much everywhere we wanted to go. The room was one of their Superior ones, which was a good size and nicely furnished. The breakfast was served in a a small area off the receiption and was a little small for the number of guests being catered for. It was not buffet , and the same every morning, which after 5 nights was not too good, they could do with vary it a bit, and having bigger tables. But their was a fire lit in this room during the day, and our room was always warm.

I have spent with my wife a night in this hotel this August and we were very satisfied. The location is excellent if you are planning to spend time in the castle and the surrounding museums or the lake, all of which are reachable on foot.
The room was small, but nicely decorated. Since we were spending only one night the size was not an issue but for more nights you should ask for a bigger room. The stuff was very friendly and serviced us whenever we required.
There was only one minor annoyance, the fridge was too noisy, but I am sure that the hotel will service this.
