I have recently returned from two weks in Skopelos staying at the Ionia Hotel. The location of the hotel is central and it affords easy access to the harbour frontage. It has a series of inter connecting balconies that feature areas you can sit outside and enjoy a quiet drink , this is apart from each room featuring its own balcony.
The rooms themselves are quite spacious and ours was cleaned to a very high standard every day. We asked to be moved to a room with a better view of the harbour and this was accomodated with quicly and efficiently. I must say that I was suprised just what a good hotel this was. In comparison I stayed at the excellent 4 star Crithonis Palace on LEROS last year and whilst this hotel is not as luxurious or well appointed in most respects its almost as good.
Breakfasts were of good quality with plenty of choice ( better than I anticpated ) and the breakfast area was well appointed . The pool area was also very clean and inviting. The general atmosphere was one of relaxation and it was quietly efficiently and positively managed. The hotel had a mix of nationalities , which I personally prefer , and everyone got on well. Having been all over the Greek Islands in the past thirty years and stayed in some dubious places , on occasion , I feel that 2 stars is an under assessment for the place and everyone deserves a pat on the back. I will not venture into a wider review of Skopelos here but just want to advise people that the hotel desrves its reputation. I would not hesitate to use it again.
