Gythion Hotel is located on the waterfront half way between the ferry dock and the KTEL bus "station". Ideal for those of us traveling by ferry, bus and foot. The hotel has only 7 rooms, really 5 rooms and 2 apartments.
Our room, 24, was quite large with a small balcony where we could sit and enjoy the view over the sea. Although it was right over the street, it was quiet enough when we closed the balcony door.
The breakfast and reception areas are very lovely, no view, but very pleasant, cozy and interesting. Breakfast was fresh orange juice, bread and homemade jam, coffee or tea, cake and cookies.
The best part of our stay were the two ladies who took care of use while we were there. They are both very enthusiastic and outgoing, willing to help or just chat. We found this hotel to be a good base for our visit to the Mani area and would stay again.
P.S. Try the Mani Sausage while you are in Gythion, cooked with orange juice and bits of oranges it is quite different than any sausage we'd ever had. We liked it grilled at Gonia, opposite the end of the ferry pier.
The KTEL bus "station" is a counter inside a cafeteria beside the Alpha Bank (just before the bank if you are walking from Gythion Hotel) and opposite the taxi stand. We walked past it several times and almost missed our bus!
