Plakias Guesthouse is a real gem that has a family-owned feeling and great location. The owner Nico is a legend and treats you like a personal guest making you feel welcome and that no request is too much trouble. The location is great as from Kastraki you can walk directly from your hotel to Meteora walking trails and its less... More

We stayed in Kastraki to visit Meteora for two nights. The Plakias guesthouse was a clean accommmodation (we shared a room with four beds) and we especially enjoyed the breakfast and dinner at their taverna, Gardenia. Took a hiking tour with the office across the street, all highly recommendable!

What an excellent place to stay when you are visiting Meteora! Very clean, comfortable en suite accommodation, friendly owners, and best of all, an excellent restaurant where tourists and locals gather at night. We still miss these evenings sitting, observing and enjoying ourselves. Highly recommended!

We stayed three nights in Kastraki, Kalambaka and although we did not stay at the Plakias for accommodation (had already booked something else), we were fortunate enough to dine there. Nikos and his family (and extended family) were fantastic. Mama's home made cooking was sensational, EVERYONE made our meals there unforgettable, especially the extra inches around the waste. A warm... More

we were 2 families with kids, and got 4 rooms to share. the rooms upstairs were very nice with a beautiful view, and the ones downstairs were ok, all very clean and comfortable. Nikos was a great host, and his Taverna is the best we had in 2 weeks of traveling in Greece. We only spent one night on our... More

I spent only two days here and my only complaint is that I wish I had had more time to spend in this very special area. Nikos and his family are just wonderful and the attached taverna is, in my opinion, the best in town. My room was clean and comfy, with a small balcony overlooking the back of the... More

I found this place through visitmeteora.com and I loved it. The room I had was small and basic but that's all i needed. The little taverna attached to it, where meals are served, was always full (I had the best grilled lamb chops ever) and the breakfast included with the room was hearty (eggs, ham, cheese, fruit, bread, coffee). Nikos... More

I had called ahead to let them know we would be checking in late and asked if they could wait for us. We finally made it around10:30PM. As soon as we stopped the car, Nikos was there to welcome us, he had stepped away from his restaurant to greet us, take our luggage and check us in. We even had... More

The hotel is in the middle of this samll village.We had a quadruple bedroom that was clean but a bit small. We could see the monasteries from the balcony. It was quiet but close to the church and thus to the bells... The restaurant serves very tasteful typical greek plates. The breakfast is very copious. The owner and the personnel... More
