“Cool oasis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2012

The Bourtzi is located on a good location in Skiathos-town. Just off the mainstreet and nearby busstops, car rentals, parking (the town is a no go for cars) and ringroad. With its cool, modern design it is a good place to flee to after seeing the masses of shopping, eating and drinking tourists who flock to Skiathos-town. Rooms are spacious, beds are good, airco works fine. Being basically built as a square block of apartments, the swimming pool occupies the centre of the hotel, with all the rooms looking down on the (therefore?) not so many swimmers.
For a 4 star hotel breakfast is a bit average. No fresh honey, jams or marmelades, no fresh orange juice etc..
The Bourtzi obviously doesn't offer access or views to the sea or beach, but these are within easy reach. It also doesn't offer a clear Greek style or atmosphere, being more Philippe-Starckish in design ( a horse as a lamppost in the reception area etc.).
But in general the Bourtzi is a nice experience, a good start to your Sporades holiday and a fine, clean haven after your outings to the hot beaches along the hotelstrip of Skiathos island.

We stayed at Bourtzi last week and although we are not the type of people that keep going back to the same places we will definately return here. Skiathos is stunning and Bourtzi is as far as we are concerned the only place to stay. The hotel is beautifully designed and full of unique and interesting features. Pretty much everything has been really well thought out with the guests comfort and enjoyment being the number one priority. The beds are amazingly comfortable and everywhere is absolutely spotless. Dimitris could not have been more helpful or committed to helping us to enjoy our holiday to the max. He advised us where to visit, where to eat, how to get around and showed a genuine interest in what we had done everyday. He and the rest of his family that own and run the hotel are fantastic. The location is perfect especially for exploring Skiathos town and for being on the doorstep of some fabulous (and reasonably priced) restaurants and Taverna's (Very good Greek food). As I said in the title we had high expectations of the island and the hotel and I would say were comprehensively exceeded. If you look at the details and photographs of the hotel and think it looks like your type of place, then I'm sure it will be. Fantastic holiday can't wait to visit again. PS - we had a quad bike for 4 days to get around all the must see places on the island, Beaches are fantastic, views up in the mountains are amazing and some really interesting history etc especially in Kastro. Finally we had a self drive boat on the last day and went all the way around the island. If you do just one thing this would be 100 Euro (inc fuel) well spent.

Room Tip: Superior rooms top floor best views. Photographs show view from 702.

Just returned from a weeks holiday with my partner, we had a fantastic week and the hotel was
superb well recommend. The hotel manager is very friendly and made our stay very pleasurable, the location is in the heart of the town, we hope to return to the bourtzi hotel in the near future by far the best hotel we have stayed at. Thank you to all the staff and the manager.

Room Tip: Superior room over looking the pool.

We (a couple) stayed here for a week in May and if we were the sort of people who would go to the same place twice we would definitely come back here.

Lovely big room and really comfy bed, great pool. Breakfast was also excellent - even lots of choice for veggies!

Hotel staff were super friendly and helpful - other reviews stated there were no maps and the staff were really unhelpful but this was not true for us, any time we asked a question on where to go we were given a map with recommended sights and places to go to eat, see live music etc. All were great.

Location was also ideal for all the shops and bars and resturants, 10 min walk to the city beach and 10 min walk to the bus stop to access the rest of the island.

Only thing which I will say is that they seemed to want to change our towels everyday (obviously great for cleanliness!). I found this a bit excessive and uneconomical. Should be the option - the usual towels in the bath or on the rack...

Room Tip: Ask for one facing the pool but at the far end for a little more privacy.

Pleasantly surprised, booked superior room as i was there for a week for a friends wedding. Did ask for a room not facing the pool as i dreaded lots of screaming children but the superior rooms all faced the pool, but there was little noise and only two children (which is good). small balcony but pleasant enough to sit after a few drinks in the evening, on our first night we were given a free drink in the hotel bar which was very welcoming. Large room, think it was a family room as there was two extra beds which came in handy for me as i am able to pack every belonging i own when going on holiday. Bed was comfy, shower was very powerful just what you need to wake you up, there is a black out panel on the balcony doors, dont do what my partner and I did and only discover this on the penultimate night. Did not book breakfast but the pleasant, helpful reception staff informed me it was in the price. The food was the usual buffet affair, available until 10.30 which is a little early for us, but coffee was good and you could take it back to your room if desired. Staff didnt really abide by the 'do not disturb' sign as witnessed when having coffee and seeing someone clean our balcony (which a little pet hate of mine). I felt sorry for the one woman who appeared to do everything and didnt have a day off the whole 7 days we stayed. It took a lot of courage to enter the clean pool as it was "freezing" but you earned a sense of achievement when you finally got in. The hotel was in an excellent location and although you were close to the more 'tacky' bars and main street when you entered the courtyard and pool area it was a haven of calm and very pretty at night. Easy walking distance through the back streets to the harbor and beautiful restaurants and quieter bars. The best bit was stroking all the stray kittens which my partner didnt allow me to take back to the hotel (spoil sport). If i was going to return i would book this hotel again.

Room Tip: Book a room on a high floor, felt sorry for the people on the ground floor at the back of reception.
