Atheaton Traditional Guesthouse
Ranked #34 of 53 Nafplio B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 May 2013

We walked in without having any reservation. The manager showed us two rooms and let us choose the one we preferred.
Friendly service. We were given a map and a lot of tourist information about the town.
Excellent location : in the heart of the historical center, but still in a quiet corner and within a stone's throw from a big public parking place.
The rooms, although small, are clean and nicely decorated.

Room Tip: Choose one of the two rooms with balcony and view on the church.

We had originally asked for the triple room when we booked online, and on arrival were given a choice of the triple (room 4 I think) or a double (room 2), both in the building over the reception. It turned out that the triple's only window opened onto the communal awning-covered terrace, so we opted for the double, which at least had a tiny balcony with a pleasant outlook onto the pedestrian street. It was quiet at night, so sleep was OK.
The website describes these rooms as 'cosy'. This is a euphemism - read tiny. We struggled to make space to open our two small bags, a situation made worse by the choice of furniture including an antique suit-stand, which just got in the way. Eventually we relegated the chair onto the communal terrace outside. There was nowhere to hang anything (except the suit-stand), and the balcony was so small that you had to move the chairs in order to open the shutters.
The bed was hard.
The bathroom floor got soaked by the shower curtain (normal in inexpensive hotels), and also when using the sink. There was a used towel in the bathroom when we arrived.
Yes, the reception and garden stink. Fortunately not the rooms.
Having read previous reviews we weren't expecting a great breakfast. There was jam and 'butter' in the fridge, and a few sachets of tea/coffee/milk/sugar. When I asked about bread, the older gentleman who showed us in said 'No bread. Rusks.' There were no rusks either. To heat water there was a miniature electric ring, and a miniature coffee pan, big enough for one cup. Now I know that at the price we paid we shouldn't expect too much, but it would be nice to receive at least what was promised.
Before we left we also saw one of the rooms in the neo-classical building next door. This was quite different, spacious, nicely furnished, decent bathroom with a shower screen, even rusks! But no balcony.
We only met the young proprietoress on out last evening, when she passed on a message to us from a friend and was very pleasant.

Room Tip: Go for one of the rooms in the neo-classical building. The ones over the reception are tiny, and o...

Tricky to get to as it is the old part of town that looks like you can't drive into, but you can with a small car. The lobby was in building, the room around the corner on another street - kind of fun! We had a large room, included coffee but no breakfast. From the other reviews, just be sure to see the room first - we were very happy with ours.

It was a very nice hotel in a great location in the Old Town. Friendly staff who you could find when you needed them. The rooms are very nice with an antique vibe, lots of space too. There was a slight drainage problem with the shower but it was cleaned each day so it wasn't too much of an issue.

Right in the middle of the old town, this is a great little place to stay. Rooms have an old-town feel about them and mine was nice and spacious. You get your own keys to the building so you can come and go which is a real bonus. Staff were excellent and helpful; willing to go the extra mile. Hard to meet fellow travelers in Nafplio as there aren't any hostels. Wi-fi in the room was a bit patchy but did the job. The fridge in the room was a great addition. Really enjoyed my stay & would recommend!

The ladies hotel's owners are excellent examples of Greek welcoming spirit. Anything we needed was there, before even asking. We loved our room, so cute, dressed with warm, ancient style, wooden furniture. Internet, air conditioned, of course. And the very center of Nafplio just few steps from the door...wonderful!
