“Simple, good value place”
Reviewed 25 September 2013 via mobile

This place is nothing flashy but was a great place for me and my girlfriend to use as a base for our holiday. It's within walking distance (5-6 mins) of the beach and is close to a supermarket. The local tavernas and bars are nice and authentic and the bus stop to go to Corfu and paleokastritsa is 50m from the hotel.

The pool is pretty standard but a bit noisy to relax next to as it is next to the road.

Overall: A good friendly experience and good price for what it is.

PS: 'Pirate' the hotel cat was v friendly!

These studios were small but beautifully clean and the whole place was immaculate. The pool was great and there was plenty of space to lie about. The hotel staff were helpful and delightful. Paleokastritska is very pretty and eating out is so cheap compared to other European destinations. If you want a cheap base that has everything you need then you cannot go wrong booking these studios.

Room Tip: book directly with Andreas and get a good deal!

Just came back from a ten day holiday here, ok this is a true representation of this place, i know the reviews are ok but please read on as I've no axe to grind:-

The good:
The place is clean for its star rating . But it is a 1/2 star remember,

The bad:
had to move rooms due to getting electrocuted in shower, the main boss thought I was making this up, which didn't bode well. The so called manager is really just a bar man .and also the son, and is more interested in making friends with Italians then managing. It's an ok place but I wouldn't return , as soon as we checked out they couldn't care less really and even blanked us on getting our bags! It's a fair distance from the beach, the so called 50 metered away from the beach must of been measured by a blind fellow, as its a good 200/250 meters, and not a beach as such.
If you don't like noisy after dark places I wouldn't bother going as a few nights it was like an Italian night spot with shouting and horn blowing etc. the pool on site is right next to the busy road and needs a good clean along with new pool furniture, as the existing stuff had rips in it and heavily faded. Plus I don't think I ever saw the pool cleaned all the time I was there.
Just remember you get what you pay for, the Paleo down the road is a much better place with great pool.id go there again no probs.

This place in its day, yeah may have been a good spot , but I feel now its simply a money making business. These are just may opinions but I've just left there ........ All I'm saying is for £50 a week more you'd get twice the luxury......have a think

This might be a 1 star hotel but I had better service there than in many 5 star hotels I stayed. Small flats but with the essential, very clean and nice view over the garden and mountain from the balcony. Pool area also nice and clean.
Very friendly and welcoming place, we didn't feel like guests but part of their friends. Very good cocktails by Athimos who also gave good advices of what to visit on the island.
Paleokastritsa is a very charming village with beautiful beaches but not too touristic. Monastery well worth a visit.
Spiros next door is a very good restaurant, as friendly as this hotel.
Will definitely come back and also recommend to friends and family.
Thanks for a perfect holidays!

Very clean, traditionally Greek family run accommodation. Andreas & family very friendly & welcoming also Petros in the bar could not do enough to make our stay a very happy one. Well stocked bar and plenty choice on snack menu. Very pleasant garden and pool area, apartments all overlooking garden. Ample parking for anyone hiring a car. Bus to Corfu town only 50 metres away outside supermarket. 3 or 4 restaurants closeby. Will definitely be back.

My wife and I recently returned from a beautiful place called Paleokastritsa and stayed at the Phivos Studios. The owner Andreas and his son's friend Petras were so friendly and helpful during our stay and made us so welcome. Also our rooms were kept spotlessly clean by I think it was Katrina who was also very friendly and helpful. Would not hesitate in returning in due course and would recommend Phivos Studios to anyone who wishes to have a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Also there are several tavernas very close by who serve excellent food and you are made to feel most welcome.

The rooms themselves are basic, but have all the essentials and are cleaned everyday. We have stayed in nicer places but this by far was our favourite in greece due to the incredible location and staff. Andreas, the owner, was amazingly kind and helpful and went out of his way to help with whatever needed. The same can be said for his son, Stathis, who runs the bar sometimes. He was incredibly helpful offering advice on what to do and see as invited us to a traditional Greek BBQ, at their other family business, paleo inn, which was one of our favourite nights. Recommend this place highly.
