Mrs Panagiota and Carrie make you feel immediately at home. They are friendly and caring without being intrusive. The hotel itself is 160 years old and has been in the family of Ms. Pangiota for the past 120 years.
The hotel is located in an ideal setting in old town Nafplion. The rooms are spotless with the best shower in all of Greece. For those with disabilities, there is a flight of stairs up into the hotel. There is no lift or elevator. If you can manage the stairs, someone will help you with your luggage. For those without physical limitations, the Aetoma is "home away from home." This is the perfect location to stay to while you plan side trips to see Mycenae, Epidarius, Tiryns and Corinth. However, don't forget to enjoy Nafplion itself! It is a beautiful and romantic city with much to see and do!
We loved our spacious and impeccably clean room, the "Kionokrano." It included the most comfortable king bed, a sofa and a desk to work with your lap top, love seat, side chair, refridgerator and safe. We also had internet access. Our terrace added ambiance.
The owner, Ms. Panagiota is wonderful. Her smiling, calm and caring demeanor as she served the most delicious, fresh and elaborate breakfast was a treat not to be missed. We were fortunate enough to stay at the Aetoma for two nights. Had time allowed, we would have stayed longer.
To provide a comparison, we also stayed at Katikes in Oia, Santorini. Because of its size, the Aetoma obviously does not provide some of the same ammenities as the Katikes. But it does provide the same quality in service, attention to detail, breakfast and cleanliness as the Katikes. This hotel is beautiful and does provide an escape into a calm romantic charm.
Well done and thank you for a lovely and unforgetable stay! We hope to return one day.
