Reviewed 13 November 2013

The hotel is in a great location just outside the old town within walking distance of the harbour, restaurants, town centre and the fortress. There was also a very decent supermarket a couple of blocks away. We had a good but quite small room with a balcony. The WiFi was excellent but we couldn't get the a/c to do anything but blow hot air - lucky it was autumn so we just did without. The breakfast was pretty good with bacon and omelette offered as the hot options but the coffee tasted like instant coffee (even though the sign said filter coffee) and the "fresh" fruit on offer was past its best.

Stayed here for one night as part of a Cosmos tour of Greece. The hotel is situated in an excellent location for exploring Nafplio and is within walking distance of the harbour and the main sites. The hotel itself is very basic - Our room was clean however the beds were uncomfortable, our shower head was broken and our air con was not working properly throughout our stay. The room also faced an inner courtyard which left it very dark and dingy. It was an okay stay for one night, but I wouldn't have wanted to stay here any longer.

Stayed here as part of a Cosmos tour so it was basically in and out but impressions were rather old rooms with ineffective air conditioning but a good free WiFi. It's in the scruffy end of town but easy walking distance to the very attractive town centre and waterfront.

Spacious room with shutters overlooking internal courtyard. Our beds were comfortable despite other reviews. Big supermarket adjacent that was open until 9pm. Short walk along the street direct to the port area or turn off to enter the old town. The hill-top fortress is also a short walk away, plus 999 steps if you are keen to get all the way to the top. (After 300, you have a great view for pictures though!). Breakfast OK.

Stayed her as part of group excellect service. Wi fi worked faster than in any other hotel we had stayed in! Passcode in the room. Bar full of drink to buy. Small old tv spoilt the room. Modern furniture stayed i 216. Had a balcony overlooking a QUIET street. Buffet breakfast was a let down when we got there!But topped it up slowlY! No toast available. Friendly staff

Room Tip: choose a room with a balcony

How I rate hotels. Star ratings for hotels are based upon facilities and services. It is easy to find the star rating for any hotel. I rate hotel based upon the experience. For example, a 2 star hotel may provide a 4 circle experience.

I stayed here as part of a Cosmos tout and really enjoyed this hotel. It was within a block of a really nice supermarket. When I opened the door to my room, I was pleasantly surprised to see the A/C was on which is a big plus in the summer. Most hotels in Greece, the A/C only works when your room key is inserted into a slot in the room. I was in room 106 and had a small balcony which overlooked the street and it was nice to have a couple cups of coff in the morning and watch the sunrise.

I recommend this hotel.
