Elsa is a wonderful host. Her tuesday bbq"s are a must. Antonios keeps the food and drink flowing. Lovely setting and pool area. Typical Greek self catering. Supermarkets nearby. I've been visiting Elsa Hotel over 9 years. It's 10 minutes stroll into The centre of Skiathos town. I will be returning. Highly recommended.

Typical older style Greek rooms.. Updated with double(?) glazing in the rooms , helps make it pretty quiet at night even though it's next to the main road and probably makes the air con more efficient.I didn't find it noisy even sitting on the balcony though. I stayed in room 10 on the 1st floor overlooking the pool/bar with a...

We found the studio to be very basic and in desperate need of an overhaul, ie broken toilet seat, bulbs not replaced and intermittent hot water. Having said this overall the room was cleaned daily and owners seemed friendly enough. You get what you pay for and this was a cheap holiday but I would definitely not come back.

Brilliant hotel and pool bar. Very welcome and homely. Never want to go home. Great location. Lots of lovely restaurants and bars. Lots to see if you hire a quad or bike. Monasteries and lovely views fro the mountains. We come twice a year and met lots of friends. Everyone friendly.

We booked for 2 nights, then had to change it to 1 night. We spoke to & emailed bookings.com to inform them & they told us to take it up with the owner which we did on arrival. She refused to refund us a night, nowhere on b.com or her website did it mention a minimum 2 night stay !...

The hotel is in a great location, only around 10/15 minute walk into town. The pool area was lovely however the rooms where lacking. We got 2 single beds despite asking for a double bed. The kitchen was tiny and there was no space to prepare food- could really do with a toaster aswell. The rooms where basic as expected...

Sentiments expressed by the numerous returnees to Elsa's studios!! As a testament to Elsa, her family and her staff - when we stayed for the ninth time in June, only a couple of the studios were occupied by 'first timers' - the rest were regulars, several of whom are returning in September along with two 'newbies' who became hooked -...

On our arrival, we were immediately shown to our room by a lovely old lady. Our room was on the ground floor, facing the pool which was really nice. I would recommend trying to get a room facing this direction. The rooms are basic, but this is exactly what we expecting considering we paid a really good price for nine...
