I will start with the breakfast, worth staying for that alone. Home baked, cakes, pies, flans - non stop Greek food fest. Rooms are engaging, right in the centre of Monevasia, but the Kastro is so compact, everywhere is central.

Everyone was so helpful and the room was wonderful. We even had a small private terrace for sitting to watch the view and for sun bathing. The homemade breakfast is amazing with many special Greek dishes as well as breads and cereals and eggs etc. It is very convenient from entrance gate and we look forward to returning..

The pros were excellent wifi, location, plenty hot water, comfortable bed and a nice large room. The cons were very small bathroom with a handheld shower, a bright light from the lane way the shone directly into the room at night, and a hairdryer which was broken. We read that the breakfasts were amazing; we were disappointed when all we... More

with any hotel in Monemvassia you need to accept that every room will be different, and often radically so, especially for the "diffuse" hotels that are spread over several buildings. After checking several options we got a lovely room with sea view and a small terrace, beautiful furnishings. The staff were wonderfully helpful and welcoming, and the breakfast provided on... More

We were lucky enough to get the last available room the day before arrival. The room was adorable and cozy with a view of the sea. We felt like we were staying in a castle, and, in fact, the rooms are spread all around the castle village of Monemvasia. The breakfast buffet was amazing, all freshly prepared by 2 talented...

Magical location and wonderfully, friendly welcome. Fantastic room with large balcony, sea views and fireplace. Beautifully prepared breakfast including Anna's delicious home made marmalade - so good we brought 4 jars home! Couldn't have had a more idyllic stay on the rock - thank you x

We visited this hotel with friends for a day trip. The personnel was nice and helpful, upon reservation and when we were late to arrive. Upon arrival, we found one bottle of water for each and coffee/tea making facilities. The room was large and full of light, the furniture though were in bad shape, full of scratches and flaws, the...

We stayed here in the summer of 2014. The hotel staff was absolutely wonderful - very helpful & accommodating. The room was perfect - traditional, spacious, with a balcony. Everything was perfectly clean with a little fridge. There are great restaurants within walking distance, particularly Chisovoulo restaurant with the best tsusukakia we have ever tasted. The breakfast is great -... More

This is an amazing hotel inside the castle and Monemvasia is a must see. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated with large bathrooms and an amazing view of the town and sea. The location is very romantic and feels secluded. Our room had a private deck overlooking the old center square and out to the sea. The staff was... More

We booked last minute and got a wonderful room with a sea view and fire place. The owners are kind and hospitable, the location is inside the castle, romantic, secluded. The price is unbelievable. We will definitely be going back.
