First thing first: when visiting Monemvasia do stay in the fortress. You might have to pay a bit higher rates but it is worth it.
The hotel offers excellent views and has the most calm and relaxing terrace.
The rooms have a wooden ceiling and some of them have sea view. The photos on the hotel's website are pretty accurate.
If I were the management of the hotel I would replace the beds or at least their mattresses to offer a better sleep quality.
Breakfast is OK but the breakfast room is quite small so it gets noisy when it is crowded.
The key advantage of this hotel is that it is at the end of the main pedestrian street of the fortress hence it is quiet and on on top of that there is no other building in front of it so the view is not blocked.
