“Lovely hotel, understaffed”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Newly renovated, the Hotel Dimitra has very nice rooms, many with views of the sea. And everyone has access to the roof deck, with its beautiful panoramic views of the very picturesque village of Poros and the sea. The shower in our room was the best I've ever experienced, worth the price of the room in itself! Rooms are small, and most have a very small deck (with a fold-down table) attached. Very comfortable beds. Not much staff--apparently only two--and one has no English at all (to go along with our lack of modern Greek...). Zoe, the manager, is delightful, however.

Room Tip: Note that rooms with even numbers have views of the sea. Odd numbered rooms have views of almost no...

Renovated in 2013. The reviews before the year 2013 are dated and these reviews do not reflect what the hotel is now! It has become a nice little hotel. The renovation did the hotel well, although it seems that not everything has neatly finished yet. Friendly staff. Be sure you choose a room with a sea view. This view is really fantastic!

Room Tip: Choose for a sea view!

The hotel is close to the ferry btween the beach and town. The view is great and the room ok. My wife got sick and the staff helped getting a doctor within the hour.

I made a booking for this hotel for one night (2 adults, 2 kids). We arrived on Poros at around 7pm and went to the hotel. No-one there except a concierge(?) who spoke no English; in sign language she told us we had to go to the "hotel office" to get a room number. After wandering the nearby streets we found a friendly Greek who told us where the office was, a few hundred metres away. We walked there; it was closed; no information either at hotel or office on how to get a room number. We tried the advertised phone numbers; not in use or no answer. We were forced to find another room for the night and left early the next morning for Athens. Now the hotel has charged us a no-show fee. I am furious.

When we first reach at the hotel, it seemed a good trade value for money. The room was very small but the price we paid was good, we thought it's a small but clean room. The problems appeared in the evening when we sat on the bed and we saw some small bugs. We saw one, we saw 2, and we saw many. In the morning we woke up with bites and all our bodies were itching.

We wanted to have a shower but the shower area was very small and the curtain not clean.

We'll definitely not go there again.

Reviewed 3 October 2009

We were hi-jacked/kidnapped straight off the Seacat by the little old lady who owns Hotel Dimitra. She took us to the building by car and when we saw the room, we weren't that impressed but as we had only just arrived on Poros and it was for only one night, it seemed OK. However, the view from the small balcony was obscured by outside blinds which were permanently drawn, the mini kitchen was very poorly equipped (no kettle and filthy cups/glasses/plates) and the tiny bathroom, particularly the shower area, close to squalid. No way did either of us want the shower curtain anywhere near us! In addition, having been assured how quiet the area was, we were awoken just after 3.00 a.m. by motorcycles revving up outside, followed by the sound of someone being very sick and then a noisy, family row (the old lady and her family lived upstairs) which carried on for around half an hour. The only positive thing I can think of to say is that the bedding was clean. Avoid Hotel Dimitra and old ladies in black who promise you "very good room, very cheap room" like the plague!

My first time in Poros was way back in 1975. In those days I used to sleep on a flat grassy area (big enough for two) by a rock, down a slope just after the Petros taverna at Neorion (it was run by his brother then ~ it's where we had breakfast & washed!)
Ah .... the wonderful times we had under the beautiful stars ... "Ena Para Me" & Tina Charles "I Love to Love" drifting across the bay from a taverna juke box.
Anyway ~ I have been back to Poros about 12 times since then ~ it has changed little, apart from more (tasteful) buildings in Neo Poro / Canali. I've have stayed at the Dimitra for the last 4 times. Their office was right smack-bang infront of where the boats came in, lucky eh? This year they have moved their office further along & are now responsible for other accommodation too. Zoe is really nice & friendly, as is Dimitra herself.
The Dimitra is in a fantastic location ~ slightly away from the busy tavernas (which, I guess, might be noisy in the evening or night.). It's up a couple of slopes (or steps if you wish) and very quiet.
It looks like Poros is building a new "harbour" for passenger ferries further along the front. It's about time ~ the car congestion around the front tavernas when the ferries come in has been a problem for years. The new harbour will be visible from the Hotel.
The Dimitra is clean, quiet, comfortable & very friendly. I would deffo go back there again or recommend it to friends.
The best rooms I have had have been the ones with a town & sea-view ~ with unbeatable unsurpassed views. Room 9 is great ~ larger than others ~ & apart from a dim light in the bathroom (I'm sure you'll do something about that), it was great.
