“A small boutique hotel that is big on comfort and hospitality”
Reviewed 16 July 2009

We stayed at Aetoma for 2 nights. The small hotel is located in a fantastic location and our room which faced the interior street was clean and comfortable with an awesome shower. Upon arriving we were warmly greeted and given an introduction of the town and suggestions for restaurants and beaches. The suggested restaurants were fantastic so good we returned for lunch and the pebbled beach which is a 10 minute walk from the hotel was pleasant as they rent lounge chairs and there is a place to get food. Breakfast at the hotel is wonderful with fresh greek pastries, yougurt, cheese and meats. Definitely make sure you visit Antica Gelateria di Roma. The gelato is fantastic and the Italian family who owns it are so charming. If we make it back to Nauplion I would stay at the Aetoma again.

This treasure is your reward for navigating the narrow, crazy streets of old Nafplion! The hotel itself is a gem - an elegantly remodeled classic family home featuring five guest rooms, nestled in an area of great shops and restaurants close to the waterfront. Once settled in your charming, yet modern room, Carrie (the afternoon/evening concierge) is at your service. She speaks English (a welcome relief!) and patiently offers great advice on restaurants and best routes. Each morning, we walked outside our room to find that the reception area had been transformed into a quaint white table-clothed dining room featuring a mouth-watering and beautifully presented Greek breakfast! Panny, the hotel's gracious owner, serves some of her own homemade pastries and treats, along with yogurt, fresh fruit and juice, coffee, rolls, meats and cheeses. To tell you the truth, we didn't want to leave!

AMAZING! The second we walked in, the very helpful staff guy told us everything we needed to now about Napflio - where to eat, drink, take pictures, sights to see, everything - and marked it all on a map for us. There is a gorgeous, fresh breakfast served until noon (big plus) and free wi-fi in your room. There are only 5 rooms, 4 off a central hall where you eat breakfast and then a luxury room on the top floor. The hotel is 3 minutes from the main square by foot (it's a small town). Our room was the KIONOKRANO room - huge, really comfortable bed; sensational power massage shower; nice TV; free water; fold-out couch. It was fantastic. With the staff ultra-helpful and the comfort factor so high, it is highly, highly recommended.

We recently returned from a 3-week vacation in Greece. The excellent reviews of Aetoma by others made this hotel selection an easy one, and it more that lived up to what we expected. The hotel is an mansion that has been in the family for generations. Every inch of the hotel is clean and well-appointed. We stayed in a triple room with a roughly 12-foot ceiling and a terrace overlooking Spyridon Square, a flower-drenched little square surrounded by a couple of small churches, a Turkish fountain, and lots of ambience (like the hotel itself). The owner does everything she can to please. The breakfast is varied, fresh, and very good. The owner's assistant Kelly is always helpful in every way.

As charming as Nafplion and its environs are, this fine hotel enhances the experience many times over. This is only my second Trip Advisor rating after many years of travel. You frequently see 5-star superlative ratings for hotels that do not live up to expectations.
This hotel deserves 5-stars, without exception.

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.

Everything was just as we left it - perfect! We booked the room on the top floor with it's comfortable balcony overlooking Palamidi Castle and great shower room. The room is so bright with all the window and always a nice breeze blows through the room. The breakfast is amazing with way too much food but we tried our best. Yogurt, fruit, pastries, meat, cheese, croissants. We saved some of the cakes in our little fridge as an afternoon snack. The serve breakfast on your balcony until noon, you just call down and they'll bring it up for you. How great is that!! But I have to say that it's Kerry and Mrs. P. that made our stay so welcoming.

Having read the reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided to book the Akrokeramo room at this hotel. The previous time we tried it was already booked and we ended up staying in a place whose owner can learn a lot from Mrs Panagiota ande the way she runs Aetoma. I would only reiterate other positive reviews but to be helpful here are a few things we adored:
spacious room, very bright thanx to large windows, decorated with utmost care including a comfy king bed, a sofa and a desk to work with your lap top- we did use WiFi

spacious terrace with magnificent views over Palamidi and Acronapflia, very romantic to watch as they are both lit up nightime

cosy bathroom with shower and all the essentials provided

impeccable cleanliness both at the room and the rest of the B&B, soundproofing is also very good

the owner, Miss Panagiota is a professional to be admired,she greeted us smiling everytime and offered a huge breakfast including OJ, coffee, ham & cheece, yoghurt, honey, croissants , cereals and pastries, very tasty and served in our room at the time we asked for it- what a treat

the people who work there also helped us carrying our luggages and recommending fine fish restaurants

reasonably priced

we parked our car at the port and you can also try the nearby streets

we only stayed for 1 night and were sorry to leave, a big thank you to Miss Panagiota for being such a hostess, we look forward to meeting her again & again.
