Unfortunately I caught the tail end of a long, cold winter so weather was not on my side for my first visit to Hydra. Maria, Petros and Eva made up for that with a very enjoyable 3 day stay at Hotel Orloff. A beautifully restored, historic building... But with all the comforts needed including a beautifully restored bathroom and comfy... More

Beautifully restored property with rooms decorated in a lovely minimal style and really classy materials. Although not spacious or overly luxurious, accommodation is comfortable for those seeking a glimpse of the old glory of the island. Delicious breakfast with local goods, warm hospitality by the hotel owners. If it was only closer to the waterfront... Never mind, though, the walk... More

My wife and I and her brother and his wife stayed for two nights at this hotel in the beginning of October. We loved everything about the hotel--rooms, fantastic breakfast and wonderful desk service. Elsa was just awesome. I know she'll be leaving so the owners should try to make a clone of her before she leaves. Hydra is a... More

I had stayed in this lovely hotel 26 years ago and could not imagine that it could still be this wonderful to this day --- or, could it possibly be EVEN better today?! Nine lovely nights there in mid October have completely written off any doubts! I have never had a more perfect experience in a hotel. The location is... More

Lovely place with lovely people. Great service and wonderful breakfasts (Eva bakes great cakes). Elsa is amazing- service with a smile! Hydra is a beautiful island with no cars! Soooo quiet! Easy to get around by walking or water taxi to the other side of the island. Superior restaurants close by... all in all a wonderful spot.

I spent two nights at this tasteful, boutique hotel and would highly recommend it. The staff were so welcoming and friendly and the hotel itself is classy and filled with beautiful objects, furniture, antiques etc. The location is also superb and incredibly quiet. If you're looking an oasis, stay here.

Our two night stay at this hotel was delightful. As other reviews state, the staff were really accommodating, the room was beautiful and the walled garden an oasis of calm. On our first night a terrific storm took out the island's elecricity. Our host was there with candles and umbrellas-no probem insurmountable!

we had a very pleasant stay at Orloff, it suits the island well. We absolutely loved Hydra, it was the highlight of our holiday. Eva's orange cake for breakfast was a delight and Elsa could not have been more pleasant.
