This is a lovely hotel, fantastic breakfast and the owner, Fani, is very welcoming and helpful. It's very tastefully decorated and the rooms are beautiful. there's also a lovely shared terrace with fantastic views. We had trouble with the wifi, but only stayed for 1 night, so it wasn't a disaster.

Gorgeous sea view from the room and beautifully decorated, the big suite is worth splurging on! It is a bit hard to find, but if you follow the signs eventually you get there. Owner is the nicest lady and was helpful with recommendations. The only negative was that we couldn't get the free wi-fi to work.. But everything else was... More

Shame we only had one night to enjoy this unique and memorable hotel which has been designed with such care and attention to detail. The breakfast was a wonderful experience consisting of local treats.

Beautiful hotel in the heart of Monemvasia. Very friendly hostess/owner welcomed us with a drink and some olives. Our room had a balcony with views of the town and the sea. Also close to where you can go and have a swim. Be aware - you cannot park in Monemvasia - you park outside the village and walk to the... More

Very nice and friendly owner, Fani. Reliable on cancellation and late arrival. Homemade breakfast. As compared to other hotels in the castle, Theophano is closer to the main square and the Mediterranean see, excellent view.

After a long, long walk through the castle, I managed to find the reception area. This hotel is right in the castle and the place is a maze and hard to walk on the stone type path and tons and tons of steps everywhere. I was out of breath as I went on the wrong and LONG side of the... More

Thank you very much for writting a long and detailed review. I understand that you had a hard time arriving and finding the hotel. Like you say yourself, these problems are completely out of our control and are inherent to unconventional locations like Monemvasia Castle. Its unique status as a walled-in medieval village is both very charming and a little... More

This hotel is located in a BEAUTIFUL old historic town. The hotel is actually a small piece of the ancient castle that has been remodeled/reworked. It faces the ocean with a terrific view. The woman that owns the hotel is an attorney from Athens. She has decorated the shared space with lovely artwork and collectors pieces, and is very interesting... More

It was quite an experience staying 3 nights inside the castle of monemvasia. The charming hotel had been beautifully restored. The rooms were very comfortable and well decorated. I had fond memories of waking up to the sound of birds and the view of the sea. Theophano has been very welcoming and even made me vegan friendly breakfast that was... More

During our recent visit to Monemvassia my girlfriend and I spent a couple of days staying in this charismatic family run hotel. From the moment we entered the hotel we were welcomed with a cold drink by the hotel owner. She was kind to provide us with maps and expert advice on what is worth visiting in kastro as well...

We chose this hotel for our 2 night stay in Monevasia because of the lovely images on their website. We were so happy to find not only was the website a true likeness to the hotel but it surpassed our expectations in every way! We own a small hotel ourselves on the island of Santorini and so we appreciated the... More
