We were traveling with my 87 year old mother and had to change hotels from one in Monemvasia as her knees did not agree with the streets and steps there (my fault not the place). Some friends had stayed at the Kinsterna so we rang the hotel to ask about suitable rooms for my mother. They were so helpful and... More

My wife Ann and I are just ending a truly memorable five night stay at the Kinsterna. As representatives of the International Travel Writers Alliance we are able to visit a range of hotels worldwide and I must say the Kinsterna is truly unique. The property itself is a lovingly restored Byzantine mansion sitting on a landscaped hillside overlooking the... More

I had wanted to stay at this hotel for a while, and my expectations were surpassed. The hotel is in a beautiful old mansion, which has been tastefully renovated and modernized. The room we were allocated was lovely - the one with the Ottoman fireplace in the photo. The furnishings and fittings in both the bedroom/living room and bathroom were... More

A hotel worth visiting as it combines modern luxuries within a medieval environment. Professional service, excellent rooms with a special decoration. On arrival there was a small mix-up as there is a gate in order to enter and park the car and no-one was there to meet us, but it was a tiny inconvenience. A bit expensive but worth it... More

We searched for a hotel near Monemvasia, Greece to spend New Year's Eve and a couple of extra days. We found this hotel and saw only positive reviews. When we checked in we discovered why. At every step, from booking to checkout, this was a wonderful experience. The facility is amazing. It is a converted old "manor house" with Venetian,... More

The Kinsterna Hotel & Spa is a hidden gem in Monemvasia. The attention to detail in the property, the food, the staff are all exceptional. We spent some days before and including New Year; two adults and our two children aged 12 and 7. Perfect place to relax. You definitely need a car if you want to get out and... More

Spent one night at Kinsterna on the 23rd December. What a special place. Slightly out of season. Probably full Christmas Eve that we were leaving. Really really nice experience. A destination hotel in the middle of nowhere. Very nice hotel room with Korres toiletries (always quality oh the establishment signifies Korres products). Very nice bathroom, exceptional staff. Felt like we... More

One great hotel near the Castle of Monemvasia, surrounded by olive trees and having a gorgeous view to sea, Is a place where you can relax, eat gourmet with local products and hear the sound of silence.

This is now my favourite hotel! Everything about it is lovely. Luxurious and romantic, friendly and attentive service. Oodles of history, lovely views, everything smells nice, the food and wine is fantastic. Great location well away from the busy parts of the country and hidden in the hills with a view of the sea...
