The perfect choice for the traveller in search of the essential. Beautifully transformed to a hotel, this old industrial building has kept intact the atmosphere of its past. There is no big garden, no swimming pool, no fancy lobby, no terrace with a view... But once you step in, you feel like home, the rooms are perfect to the detail,...

We stayed at this hotel in June and honestly cant fault it, great location in Vathy (which is an amazing place) and the staff were lovely and extremely helpful. We wanted to rent a scooter and the shop was shut. I just asked if there was another shop at the reception and within five minutes they had a scooter bought...

The hotel is located in the heart of Vathi. It is a nice decorated hotel, very clean with spacious rooms. There is a small yard (used for breakfast room) and there are enough free bicycles you can ride around Vathi! One thing to be aware of is that all rooms are in the ground floor and you can see pedestrians...

We booked in for a week and stayed for 2. Lovely comfortable room with courtyard. Christina and family very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts to die for. Ithaca is the best Greek Island we have been to. Beautiful mountainous scenery,hardly any traffic, lovely empty beaches with crystal clear water. Vathy is very pretty with lots of good tavernas.

We stayed in September 2013 and were glad that we had taken note of the recommendations on here and booked at the Familia. Even before we arrived Mr Gonatas took the trouble to keep us informed by email of the times of the ferries from Sami as the timetable was updated and gave us travel tips. The hotel is lovely...

We have just returned from our first ever holiday in Greece so we tried to choose our destination hotel very carefully. We stayed for 10 days in September 2013. After reading the reviews for Hotel Familia we decided to base our trip to Ithaca there. We were not disappointed! The care, attention and friendliness lavished upon us by Christina and...

From the moment you get in you feel part of the family. Not only that i got to meet some of Christine's(the owner) family members, they all welcome you with open hands and let you feel you are part of the familia. Too bad i am not, cause I wish Christine would prepare me her delicious breakfasts with home made...

My daughter and I stayed here for 8 nights in July - and it was truly lovely. Makis went above and beyond to research our complicated journey and made us feel very welcome when we arrived. Christina's breakfasts are delicious - make sure you're really hungry, take it slow and you'll do it justice. Great having the bikes - though...

Excellent place to stay, very good location, advice and recommendations, the hotel is very nicely decorated and welcoming as were the staff / family, overall beautifully relaxed sophistication. Just set back from the sea everything you need is just a minute or two walk. I would recommend Hotel Familia as a great base to explore Ithaca.
