Once we had found the hotel (which was not easy in the dark and using google maps), we were delighted - the staff could not have been more helpful and the views from the breakfast terrace are magnificent. The room (Pegasus) was great, with a raised bed, since the hotel is built into the rock face of the castle above and some of the rocks could not be moved. We only stayed two nights but will be heading back. The breakfasts gave a great selection of pastries, yoghurt, fruit, etc, as well as a special extra each morning - for example jelly & fruit.
The hotel is set above Nafplio with views across the old town rooftops - the first time you climb up it seems a lot of steps, but actually it is not that bad and you get used to it ( and you would not have the view without the steps).
The key tip for finding the hotel is to drive up to the castle of Akronafplia and then take the old (venetian?) castle gate into the town from the castle - park by the abandoned large hotel at the top of the hill and then go down through the gate - the hotel is just off to the right as you come through the gate.
The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was that the bathroom, though generally very good, had some mildew and flaking paint on the ceiling above the shower - not a big issue though.
I look forward to coming back soon!
