We stayed at Kastro for three nights in September. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with balconies and en-suites. They have a refrigerator, hair dryer, safe, tea pot. The room comes with breakfast, a very full buffet. Especially liked the egg dish. Our only problem was that a German group, a large group, was booked during two of our mornings... More

Overall: Great location, friendly staff, basic clean room. Pros: Very friendly staff We stayed in a large room with a terrace Bathroom was clean and modern Breakfast was solid Quiet (we had a room facing the street) Cons: Hotel smelled of smoke Price felt slightly high for value (we paid 69€ for one night with breakfast)

Stopped overnight here before we moved onto our holiday destination...10 mins taxi from airport cost about 15 euros. The hotel is small but very clean and the staff are really helpful and nice. The breakfast was nice and catered for many eating types. The location is superb for exploring the city.

I was disappointed with the negative comments made by other reviewers. This hotel is perfect. Clean, friendly employees, convenient room (with lots of space for couple with two suitcases) and a lovely ambience in the lobby and on the fifth floor garden. We stayed here for 4 nights. The check in was perfect, receptionist was super friendly and gave us... More

Nice hotel with a good breakfast. Fifth floor rooms are the best as you have a rooftop garden right outside your door (although anybody is free to use it). The location is excellent for quick access to both the port and the town center. It has the best air conditioning that I've encountered in Greece! The lack of a laundry... More

We only stayed one night, but I would never stay again. The rooms were clean, but tiny. The room was so small that the bed was jammed up against a wall on two sides, so one of us had to climb out over the foot of the bed to get out. In the bathroom, there is a sliding, tinted glass... More

The hotel is nice and new, room and bathroom are clean and comfortable. It is centrally located, but very quiet. Very good breakfast.. You can park nearby the hotel, or in the city parking (the hotell will give you a discount for it). I have been here twice, then I recommend it!

We were here only for a night and chose this place as it is close to the airport and we had to catch an early morning flight to Santorini. We reached the hotel pretty late (around 10:30 - 11 PM) as we were travelling from Kisamos. The lady at the reception was friendly and booked a cab for us to... More
