“Excellent value”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Very friendly staff. Spotlessly clean. Great breakfast - all you can eat. Overall, excellent value for money. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.

The only negative point was the absence of tea and coffee making facilities in the room.

Recently stayed here on trip in June. Great location, able to walk to restaurants. The staff was very friendly, courteous. Rooms are clean, bathrooms good size. Breakfast was always a treat...yogurt, preserves, breads, juice, boiled eggs, etc. served in a sunny room. I liked that every room has its own balcony, and enjoyed sitting out in evening watching the lights on the waterfront and people walking by. However if you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs. Traffic sounds can keep you awake. The one main complaint I had was that the bed was like sleeping on a rock. The positives outweigh this, and I would stay there again.

Room Tip: All rooms face the water!

If you're looking for a simple room to sleep in Gythio, the Aktaion Hotel on the waterfront should fulfill many folks' requirements. Our family had two rooms, including room 203 on the second floor at 50 euro's per night per room. While the rooms have a small balcony overlooking the beautiful water with a great view, it's not much for sitting as it's right over the sidewalk and street. Forget about sleeping with the balcony doors open, the road noise from below will keep you awake; but when the door is closed the room is fairly quiet. The hotel is on the main road, an easy and short walk to waterfront restaurants. While the rooms were clean, there appeared to be few travelers staying while we were there ... probably due to the poor economy is Greece and the strains of $9 per gallon gasoline to make the long drive from Athens to the southern shore of Gythio. A good place for an overnight stay while passing through.

Our room cost 50 euros which is very good value nowadays. Room on front overlooking harbour with small balcony. Clean but not much room for luggage. decent shower. Very good for a one night stop. Helpful reception.
It is a pleasant town

Comfortable mid-range hotel with all rooms having balcony views over the harbour. Bright breakfast room with good service. No traffic noise problems in May but it will be much busier in the summer. Just two minutes' walk to the first of dozens of waterfront restaurants but for more traditional taverna cuisine try these two recommendations: Poulikakos on the right just before the harbour square - e.g. oven-baked chicken and potatoes €5.50, and at the other end of the promenade the beach grillhouse Barba where a huge plate of meltingly-tender spit-roasted pork will also cost just €5.50. Gythio is a great touring centre for must-see sights including Monemvasia, the Mani peninsula and the spectacular Caves of Diros.

The hotel interior was a bit dated, but kept clean. The hotel staff nice, but not overly friendly. Rooms were average all around in terms of size and quality of bed.
The location was excellent, right on the main strip on the harbour. All rooms had balconies looking out over the harbour. Lots of parking on the road in front of the hotel and a quick walk anywhere in town.
Price was good, and included breakfast (egg & toast).
