We had booked for three nights at the start of our holiday and found the hotel very comfortable and suitable for our needs. We had a fairly large onsuite room with shower with a small veranda with a table and chairs which was nice to sit in the evenings. Reception , the dining room and lounge sitting area had very...

Clean Hotel at centre with things you need. Off the plane after 2200, so I got a taxi at 10 Euro only. Room is spacious and clean, staff is friendly. It's a cool hotel giving you a little funny surprise when you turn off the lights at night. Look at the ceiling! A normal size supermarket is just few stoned... More

Kastro Hotel is lovely! Comfortable, cheerful, helpful, and great location. Parking your car free of charge can be a challenge though as the narrow streets around it are crowded! But there are pay car parks around. Quite reasonable.

Concerning value for money, the service of the reception was medium, some stuff was reluctant to help, whike other not.Should have slippers in the room, the light for reading in the singe bedroom was disturding powerfull with no choice otherwise.But despite that generally yo relax and...

I stayed in Kastro two years ago, and honestly it was not memorable. However, this time I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel has been redone elegantly and aiming to please travellers. The rooms are comfortable with brand new beds and duvets and options of pillows. The bathroom are well lit (great mirror for makeup) and modern, The only thing I... More

This conveniently located hotel has steep entry steps and should be avoided by anyone handicapped or elderly. The surrounding sidewalks (such as they are) are truly impossible and dangerous by night or in the rain. The rooms are comfortable and pleasant enough. Elevator access available. Our room had no view at all so kept the window shuttered. Missing was an... More
