We just loved this hotel. The location could not be better, right in the middle of everything. The romms were basic, but some of us were very lucky to get a small balcony overlooking the garden and pool. It is also nice to be able to sit outside and have continental breakfast in the morning. At the time we were there, there were many pilgrims from Greece at the hotel. We felt it a little strange that we were asked not to use the piano in the bar because the pilgrims should sleep. At 9.20 pm? We found out that the piano was very out of tune, so it did'nt really matter.
We enjoyed the hotel and can recommend it to others.

Spent another two weeks here at the Skala Hotel and it continues to be blissful! The Island, the people and the hotel are all so welcoming. The Hotel successfully continues to seek ways of improving and despite being busy, which is great to see, you never actually feel it. Many of the recent reviews very accurately describe our views. It was a great two weeks to set us up for the winter and we look forward to being able to return next Spring to enjoy your hospitality once again. Thanks Everyone!! Enjoy your Winter!

We spent almost two weeks at Skala Hotel in September 2013, and cannot speak highly enough of our stay there. The Hotel was spotlessly clean, and the service first class in all areas - reception staff, domestic staff, restaurant staff, bar staff and, of course, Theo. As two elderly females travelling alone for the first time, we felt safe and cared for and couldn't have found anywhere more perfect. The atmosphere, the location, the décor, the breakfast and the professional yet friendly way the Hotel is run, couldn't have been better.
Thank you so much to all at Skala for a huge contribution to a wonderful holiday. We miss you.

We have been visiting Skala Hotel for eight consecutive years, and have never been disappointed. By now we feel utterly at home in this place, with Theo at the helm and his wonderful and charming staff looking after their guests in a most hospitable way. They really make you feel welcome going out of their way to fulfill every wish you may have. - We loved the newly refurbished and updated bathroom and the good quality furniture, including beds you really sleep in well - unless you are too excited about the nocturne sounds of Patmos harbour which in our opinion greatly add to the atmosphere of the place. Add the tinkling of the church bells from around seven o'clock in the morning, and the faint noise of the cockerels in the distance, and you may never want to leave again... Such is the location of Skala Hotel between the seafront and a bustling town, yet secluded from the traffic by lush walls of greenery splashed with bright flowers, that it would be hard to imagine a better place to relax and enjoy the beautiful views. If you are indeed looking for a hotel version of paradise, this one comes pretty close!

I stayed at Skala several times already and each time it was just perfect. Excellent location just few steps of the main street and yet calm and quiet in a garden of bougainvilleas; Just short - 6 min.- walk to the port, main square with numerous shops and kafenios and taverns. Beach just across the street and the swimming pool with bar at the hotel - simply everything I could wish for. Rooms are quite spacious with shower, air condition and TV, they are clean and offer mountain or sea view through balcony. Breakfasts offer variety of jams, cheese, ham, juices, coffee, tea, yoghurt, fresh fruits, etc. You can eat inside or outside on the veranda. The team - well the team is what makes Skala "a home away from home" for me. Theo - the Manager, the Reception team as well as the rest of the staff are extremely polite, they will offer help and assistance in organizing your stay. They will greet you with a friendly "Kalimera" or "Kalispera" depending on the time of the day with a warm smile. I truly recommend Skala for your stay and thank the entire Team from my heart for making my visits just perfect each time.

We were initially disappointed to be allocated a 'mountain view' room but loved the tinkling bells of the herd of goats which meandered across the hillside morning and evening. Skala is a lovely hotel beautifully located right in the centre of the main port but reached through a 'tunnel' of jasmine and bougainvillea which creates an atmosphere of quiet and seclusion. Rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and well-equipped. Totally adequate (just slightly uninspiring) buffet breakfast can be taken on the leafy terrace with floor show provided by a family of ginger kittens. Staff are friendly and helpful. Overall a great base for visiting Patmos.

We stayed at the Skala in Patmos for two nights in mid-September 2013, and found it to be a very pleasant place indeed. The hotel is superbly situated -- within very easy walking distance of the ferry port, restaurants, shopping, beach, etc. -- yet set back just a little from the Main Street, which is right on the water. In particular, It is barely a three minute walk to a restaurant where we had a superb dinner. I have regrettably forgotten its name, but coming out of the hotel onto the Main Street, turn left and walk no more than 100 yards or so. There is an Italian restaurant on the ground floor, and the restaurant/taverna in question is upstairs from that, with a terrace looking out over the water.

The rooms at the Skala Hotel are clean and comfortable, and have a fridge (with -- amazingly -- a very reasonably priced minibar), air conditioning in good working order, a balcony, and a very decent bathroom. Our room looked out onto the back of the hotel, so had an uninteresting view, but from what we could tell some of the rooms have a view on the sea or on the hill that houses the monastery of St. John. The hotel also has a very attractive pool (salt water) that appears very well-maintained. Breakfast was included in our rate and consisted of a buffet with a nice range of choices, including cereal, eggs, bread and toast, pastries, ham, and cheese.

The staff and management were very friendly and helpful. The air conditioning in the room we were initially assigned had a terrible squeal, but the manager immediately transferred us to another room. The receptionist (Maria) whom we asked for restaurant suggestions was extremely forthcoming. All in all, I would have no reservation in recommending the hotel.

Room Tip: We got a special -- thus a good rate -- on Expedia, but the room did not have an interesting view...
