Ok, I'll start with the Ups. Compared to most other "Pensions"/Guest Houses/Hotels in Hydra, this one is close to the main center of the Island. Being near, and not in the central harbour, means less noise and that's a plus for me. Their wifi connection was really good. Meaning steady, 16mbps and 2.something upload, which is better than the connection... More

I usually never go with someone I meet on the street for a hotel. But this lady got us to go to her pension. Turns out it was one I had read about. Got a good room. Even had t.v.with English and German Channel. Wonderful Greek style breakfast which we could not finish but kept in our refrigerator for later.... More

The owners were delightful and really worked hard to communicate, despite not knowing a lot of English. Their adult son helped run the place and knew English well. When we arrived, he showed us several different apartments to fit our family of 5 and let us pick which one we wanted. The views were great of hillside homes- a far... More

I could have done with a chair, a mosquito net and a better shower. The place is not new but they do their best to keep it they clean and tidy. Probably one of the few cheap options in Hydra , so if you don't have very high expectations it's fine.

Going to Hydra is a must for Athens visitors. Cause it's a 2 hours on a boat and you will find yourself in an entire different place, a small paradise! 2-3 days there is enough time to get you completely relaxed! The reason why? It's a striclty pedestrian island, no vehicles are allowed! But where to stay? As the place... More

Cozy Greek guesthouse with family atmosphere Excellent base for visiting hydra city. The son of the family personally welcomes you upon arrival at the harbour and makes sure you don’t get lost in the narrow ancient streets. Just a short walk from the port. The family does its best to make you feel at home. The pension is a beautiful... More

We were a party of three friends, and they found us a room that suited us perfectly. Fine small pension with a lovely courtyard, where breakfast is served each day. They treated us like family, offered advice and directions when we needed it, and kept our bags all afternoon on the day we checked out. Nice location easily found via... More

I have been to Europe on several occasions, and always use Rick Steves guidebooks (as well as others). All trips have been wonderful. This hotel is terrible, caution is advised! They practice a misleading billing system from their website using a disingenuous billing company. I have had to activate billing fraud through my credit card against the hotel and Kofitsas... More

Excellent service. The owners were so kind and make us feel like at home.They helped me to get my missing suitcase. They guided from the harbour to the hotel. Lovely courtyard. Look also the roof terrace.

Traditional Hydra architecture , includes apartments that are large, private, and have expansive balcony with views over the old roof tops. Perfect for families and excellent value for money. Owners Achilles and Dina were gracious and kind, sharing homemade cakes and making one feel at home. Lovely courtyard to soak up the atmosphere of this lovely old hydra residence. Would... More
