We stayed here for one night, and would have stayed two but a tour group was coming through so there were no rooms available. Our room had a fantastic view of the rocks of Meteora, and it was very conveniently located. The man at the desk helpfully found us a fridge for our stay, and made sure we could park right in front of the hotel. The room was fairly basic, but clean, tidy and the water pressure in the hand held shower was great. There was free wireless which worked well on the evening, but i couldn't connect in the morning. A fridge in the lobby sold beer, wine and soft drinks for reasonable prices too. Value for money and we'd go back.

I stayed in this hotel yesterday for a night. Location wise, it is fine. The hotel locates in a small town near to restaurants, mini markets, tourist centre and etc. The hotel is about 3 stars graded. The room is big and we have a hill view room too. The staff, Yanis is very friendly and helpful. He gave us very sufficient information about Meteora. Overall, I am satisfy with this hotel with this price.

I went to Kalambaka in July 2013 - I had great expectations and unfortunately I was disappointed. First of all if you are lucky you can have a view over the Meteora, if not you have a view of an old scruffy building just next to your balcony! The second thing - the bathroom was in a horrible state - everything was old and something which seemed to be a window turned out to be a cable cupboard! The next point - in the photos you can see a wonderful restaurant on the top of the building - sorry it's closed ( I read in one of the reviews from 2010 that it was closed as well then because of renovation) - it takes them a lot of time! However, it wouldn't be fair if I didn't mention the staff - they were helful and very friendly, breakfast was fine and Kalambaka itself definitely worth visiting.

I was few days ago in Kalambaka and I stayed for two nights at this hotel. It is a good hotel, the personal was very nice, the room was clean and had a good landscape to the meteora rock towers.The room also contains a cooler (per request) and air conditioner.The breakfast was the same every morning, nothing changed in the menu so if you are hungry do not rely on it! Regarding the silence, this is a city hotel so the street where the hotel is located is very throughput so it is some noise generated by the vehicles, specialy by the mopeds and motorcycles.The parking place was ok, even if there are not so much space to park in front of the hotel the personal helped me to park to another street near the hotel.
Overall for one or two night this hotel is a good choice in Kalambaka city.

The location at the end of town was very nice with good views of the Meteora. The room layout was very comfortable, but needs to be updated. The balcony was nice size.
The breakfast had very limited choices and what was available wasn't very tasty.
A good value place to stay if you are not looking to be "wowed" by your room.
As a side note, this hotel as well as the other two we were in, all have two twin beds pushed together to make one makeshift double bed. So, Mind the Gap!

Room Tip: Get a third floor room with a balcony and a view of the Meteora.

We just stayed here 1 night with a group of students. They were very accommodating. It was the 1st day of the season but they handled the group well. There was a shortage of hot water in the shower thanks to everyone getting up at the same time. It is a cute little town with lots of little bakeries.

It is a very nice family run hotel. The perfect spot to visit nearby Meteora. The rooms were big and well furnished, clean and warm. There was free WI-FI service in all the hotel. They served a good breakfast and the fireplace in the center of the main hall was a great spot to sip a coffee. The hotel is situated on the main road of Kalambaka, with an amazing view of the Meteora rocks. Meteora is only five minuted by car. There is guaranteed free parking in front of the hotel.
The price we paid for the room was quite low, considering the quality of services. I would suggest this hotel to everyone.

Room Tip: All rooms were good, any one of them would do.
