we loved this hotel. It was spotlessly clean, great service with a smile.
lovely views from the generous balcony over the pretty little town of skopelos.
a great base for exploring the rest of the island.

Room Tip: on a steep hill out of the port so everyone will get a great view. maybe the less mobile will want a...

We have just returned from 11 nights at the Hotel Denise and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Denise with it's super elevated location and fantastic views over Skopelos town and the harbour.

The hotel is small, well-appointed and one of the cleanest we have stayed in. The lobby/lounge and dining area sparkle and yet have a very welcoming feel to them. The bedrooms similarly were cleaned daily with fresh sheets and towels everyday. The bedrooms are well-equipped with plenty of storage and a fridge which was a bonus and quite possibly one of best views from any balcony in the Sporadic Islands - you will never tire of waking up or coming back to the view.

There are 3 great tavernas very close by, Alexanders Garden Taverna (1 min by foot down the steps) which we ate at 3 times, Peparithos (30 secs down the ring road by foot) at which we ate once and Odlos which is just down from Alexanders. The nearest supermarket is two mins down the ring road by foot - don't be put of by ring road - it's just a normal road that skirts the maze of wonderful alleyways that make up the bulk of Skopelos town.

The hotel is situated towards the top of the town and therefore the walk down to the harbour front does involve steps for the first minute or so, after that it's gently sloping down through the passages, passing quite up-market shops. From Hotel to harbour front is 5 mins at most, possibly allowing for double that on the way back depending on quantities of Wine/Ouzo/Metaxa required to refresh oneself.

What really makes the Hotel Denise a cut above the rest is the warmth, friendliness and professionalism of the lovely owners, sister and brother, Mary and Spiros. Always ready with a smile, a laugh and advice and they really do want to ensure that you enjoy your stay and get the most out their lovely island. Mary (always smiling), Spiros (fitness fanatic/scooter expert) and the two lovely ladies serving breakfast and servicing the rooms make this the friendliest and most welcoming of hotels.

We will return to Skopelos and will definately be booking in to stay at the Hotel Denise as it was almost like being a family guest in a large Greek home, than staying in a souless large hotel.

John & Caroline.

Room Tip: For the best views request rooms on 03rd or 04th floor.

Nice littel hotel with friendly service. The rooms are very small though and the hotel is placed uphill and is not advised for people with walking disabilities.
The view from some of the rooms is very beautiful.

me and my husband stayed here for one week in June.The view from the balcony is just brilliant. A couple of evenings we just got a take-away meal and sat on the balcony with our food and wine, just admiring the view.The walk down to the town was very enjoyable, we got lost a few times going down the lovely cobbly streets it's like a maze! The hotel room was a fair size, basic but very clean and was tidied every day. We had clean bedding and towels every day. The air-con was a godsend! Breakfast was a bit unimaginative we had the exact same thing every day, they could have varied it a bit!! The walk back up to the hotel from the town really got your heart pumping!! Would definitely stay in the same hotel if we ever go to Slopelos again.

My wife and I stayed 2 weeks at this lovely hotel located above the Scopelos city centre with a marvelous balcony view over the town, harbor and bay and well away from the town noise.

The hotel is run by a family, which are very dedicated to help and ensure a nice stay. We experienced a very fexible service level.

The rooms are equipped with aircon, satelite tv with original english sound with greek subtitles, refridge, lockable safebox (at a small extra price), plenty of closet space.

The only two negative points were, that the bathrook floor sink were the highest point in the bachroom floor (the hotel staff were generous with extra floor towels) and the standard breakfast is good quality but limited.

All in all the hotel Denise is a very pleasant place to stay at the price.
