Delicious breakfast with traditional food, the sisters at the reception very polite and keen to help in everything. While we were checking out they offered us homemade marmalade which was very kind of them. The wi-if was ok and rarely slow. Amazing view from the balcony, large room. The only thing that seemed to bother us was the music from... More

What a stay!… Only one who has already slept in a medieval building can describe what that feels like… Being inside a fortress, the hotel has its rooms spread in its original cells, keeping the atmosphere of ancient times. Curved ceiling, rocks on the walls, low doors (watch your head, by the way!), wooden and iron furniture, and other details... More

This beautiful hotel in unique and scenic Monemvasia features typically friendly and helpful Greek hospitality, only taken to the next level. The owners were welcoming, wanted to carry our bags up the steep steps, gave us maps and directions to special places on the island, even upgraded us to a stunning room with a balcony overlooking the Gulf of Laconia....

This place is awesome, like Ayers Rock in Greece. We had a quiet, undisturbed view on the sea as well as on the upper town. Wifi worked, 50m to the small beach. The breakfast is full, rich and fresh. Little cats all around. Just lovely.

Stayed two nights in the extraordinary walled town of Monemvasia. Large, comfortable room with its own balcony looking out to sea. Great welcome, service and breakfasts. Place of great character and charm - strongly recommended.

This place was just okay. The wifi connection was very weak and spotty. We had to stand in just one spot in the front doorway to get a signal. The people were very nice. It's family run. Our rooms location in the heart of every thing. The room was very odd for several reasons. The room was a poorly done... More

Dear tripbuilder, I'm really sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay with us as you expected. After reading carefully your observations, I think that your overall negative experience can be attributed to two major issues: First, Monemvasia is a medieval Castle and most buildings here were built several centuries ago under completely different needs and standards of comfort. You should... More

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
