This was not my favorite place, but some of the reasons were out of the owner's control. Google maps has an inaccurate location for this hotel. Apple maps doesn't have it at all. Other websites do not actually have an address for it (apparently that's common on Hydra). We wandered around on the correct street for quite a while, thinking... More

On arrival we were greeted by the lovely owner Antonio , who made us feel so at home. All our facilities were spotless, Antonio and his wife made quite sure we were comfortable and assisted us with everything we needed to know. The Guest House is conveniently close to the waterfront in a clean and friendly neighbourhood. When we left,... More

Myself and my friend arrived on the island on an afternoon ferry, we had not been told someone would meet us off the ferry so we swiftly moved past all the people asking if we had accommodation (big mistake) It turns out that someone from Botsis was there waiting for us to help with our luggage and we basically told...

Hydra is a great place to stay and the Botsis is very good choice of accommodation. The guesthouse is located on a characteristic street, close to the harborfront, restaurants and shopping. Ηelpful and friendly owner. The room was clean and comfortable with a balcony and an excellent view. Free internet and beach towels. I suggest that guesthouse.

We loved this place! Only about 1 block from harbor, easy walk in a no-vehicles town (hire a donkey to carry your luggage!), helpful and friendly owner on site, super-clean rooms and shared kitchen, and a tiny balcony with view of the sea across to the Pelponese - don't hesitate to stay here. Oh yeah, and GO TO HYDRA, the... More

The guesthouse is located on a characteristic street, close to the harborfront, restaurants and shopping. Our room was spacious, comfortable, spotlessly clean and had a view balcony overlooking the town and sea. There was a kitchen for guest use and free Internet access and beach towels available in the lobby. The owners, Anthony and his lovely wife, were friendly, helpful... More

Hydra is a great place to stay and the Botsis is very good choice of accommodation. The rooms are basic but very clean, and the attached balcony to our room was a very nice touch. The best part is the central location of the guest house - it is so easy to find and so central to the main port.... More

Our good experience started before we even got there, when Mr. Botsis emailed us the link to buy ferry tickets online ahead of time. So helpful! Then, when we got off the ferry he was right there and helped take our luggage up to the hotel. The building is very close to the dock but we would never have found... More

Mr Botsis and his wife were very friendly and helpful. Room with patio was great, beds were firm and comfy, small fridge in room. Rooms are off the main square so quiet, but yet close to everything. Absolutely loved Hydra and the solitude...no cars...walking around village is great for one's soul. Mr Botsis very friendly, as is his wife...sweet couple...restaurants... More
