“Bliss!”
Reviewed 30 October 2013 via mobile

What a one-in-a-million place...
We felt like coming home although we had never visited before. The owner Nikos made it his personal concern to make sure we enjoy every aspect of our trip: from the obvious (VERY comfy beds, great views, beautiful spaces designed with great attention to detail) to the unexpected (offerings of tasty treats and drinks, interesting conversations, the most abundant and nicely served breakfast, meticulous cleanliness, musical discoveries) all our expectations were exceeded. The serenity and beauty of the surroundings made the experience complete.
We will definitely be back.

Stayed September 2013

It is not so common to be in a hotel and sit in the lobby feeling so relaxed like you 're in your own living room. The connection also with the rest customers was amazing.
We stayed at Kastanea for 4 days just before Christmas. Nikos the owner (and also the rest personel) makes you feel very comfortable and helps you a lot proposing plans as he knows well the secrets of the area.
Room had 2 separate areas with contemporary minimal design. Very clean very warm and very comfortable.
Lobby was even better than the pictures in the web. It has a modern design with a bar in one corner and fireplace to the opposite side. Very warm with Wifi available..
Parking space helped a lot as it is in the basement of the hotel with an internal stairway to the lobby. If weather is bad (as it was for us for a couple of days), it was very convenient to use it especially when you have small kids and a baby carriage.
Some minor remarks:
- No internet was available in the room as wifi could not reach that far.
- Agios Nikolaos has almost nothing to do but you have many other places in the area to visit.

Boutique hotel with minimal design and arty decoration.

- The suite was spacious (having even a second double bed on a second level) and everything was brand new, shinny clean and unpretentiously luxurious.
- The standard tailor-made breakfast was rich enough on its own, and was further improved by several a la carte delicacies at an extra charge.
- Service and personal interest by Nikos the owner and staff was excellent!
- The location is in a village with practically nothing to do, but it's only a 5' drive (6km) from Karpenisi so this was never an issue.

Definitely worth staying here, and worth returning again and again.

For sure one of the best hotels of the area. Been visiting Karpenissi for several years. After discovering Kastanea I have one more reason to visit. Niko, the owner, makes you feel like home from the very first minute. The rooms are excellent and the location is perfect.

It is our second day in Kastanea Hotel in Agios Nikolaos Karpenisi. Nikos , the owner is a great person who is behind everything in a so discreet way that your stay here becomes a unique experience.The place is situated in the middle of the forest and surrounded from little villages close to Karpenisi.The decoration and styling of the hotel is so original and the carefully selected music makes you feel really comfortable.

I have visited Karpenisi many times but the recent years I have discovered a new small hotel where I stay everytime since, as a matter of fact I do not go at Karpenisi if Kastanea has no availability. Every time I stayed at Kastanea, both in the snowy winter and in the cool (there) summer too, I have spend the most romantic and magical weekends. It is the most cosy, silent but yet with excellent selections of music, with spacious, design suites, with great brekfast and great hospitality, luxurius small hotel I have visited in Greece. And if you get lucky, you can taste a home made soup by Nikos (the kind owner). Kastanea is situated in a wood of firs so if you go there you feel like a fairy of the woods..!

I just read the previous review and I cannot add anything more as it is very detailed and honestly I could not describe it any better. It was my first time visiting Eurytania and it is certainly not my last. I would like to go back and enjoy Kastanea resort as often as possible! Nikos - the owner- made us feel very welcome and the quality of the service and the accommodation facilties were excellent. I would like to comment on Nikos cooking abilities as well as we had Easter dinner at the resort where Nikos cooked a great after Easter supper- For the Greek people who know - one of the best "Mageiritsa's" that you can taste. Great backgound music and a place cosy with personality and character- great place for couples and groups of friends!!
Than you Niko and his team ( Meni) for your hospitality and service and wishing you all the Best!!!
