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.

The rooms are located all over the old centre. We had Room 1 which was absolutely great. The view from the room and balcony was breathtaking overlooking the old centre square and ocean. Nice bed in a very spacious antique room. The bathroom + toilet were clean but the winner was the balcony! Loved our stay there.

The hotel has rooms scattered around near the Main Street. Ours was a short walk from the square where the lovely breakfast was served. We enjoyed our balcony and the views it gave us, what a fantastic collection of buildings. Our room was spacious with a small bathroom which was ingeniously squeezed into this historic building, I treasure the low... More

Dear Annepaull, thank you for your review. I'm very glad that you've enjoyed the views, the breakfast and your overall stay and that you've left with fond memories of Monemvasia. I also liked your genuine comments about the small "inconveniences" of the life in a medieval castle. We will be waiting for you next time you will visit Monemvasia. More

My family ( 2 adults and 3 children) stayed at Hotel Byzantino in August of 2014. We rented a little traditional house. As it was truly traditional, there was not much luxury. A very small patio with a bistro table, a very small common room and bathroom, and two spacious bedrooms upstairs. A nice touch was that upon arrival, they... More

We are just back from a fairy-tale visit to Monemvasia. The hospitality at Byzantinon was second to none. Obviously, staying within the walls of a medieval city has some limitations so that wifi and cell phone communications are limited. However, the rooms have all the imaginable comforts, including crisp linens, high quality toiletries, and a spacious kitchenette. Our balcony overlooked... More
