Nice beds, clean white bedspreads, heat, great sized hot shower, decent breakfast, and centrally located. Good value, one of the nicer cheap hotels in Greece. Did I mention almost comfy beds, this is a big plus for Greece.

The photos shown by the management is somewhat dated and does not really show the real condition of the rooms and lobby area. U are better judging it by traveler photos. We are a couple staying here with two luggages. We can't even find place to lay down ONE of our luggage let alone two. In the end we had...

We booked on line and the rooms on display were not fancy but looked adequate. When we were shown to our room it was squalid and definitely bore no resemblance to what they had online. So watch out for the horrid little rooms at the back and make sure they don't book those for you as they also have no...

Isn't it just nice to find a good hotel right on the road up to the Meteora monastaries? - you can park almost right outside the hotel, and further more we were very surprised to hear how cheap a room in this hotel actually was, considering the central location close to one of Greece's most visited areas. It's simply great...

Average place to stay one night in Kalambaka. Advantages: location right in the city center, very good view on Meteora rock from terrace, convenient bed, good breakfast. They can definitely improve lightning. E.g. in the bathroom one additional lamp would improve the situation. The same with the bedroom there were just two lamp-brackets and no central lamp or lamps over...

The room view was amazing (Meteora rocks in front of the balcony), good location (fairly close to various stores and restaurants), good value for money, clean and nice room. Breakfast was decent (fresh vegies, fruits, juice, coffee, dairy products, olives, butter&jam, biscuits). Friendly stuff. Lovely fireplace in the reception.Loved it!
