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

Romantic place, spacious and cosy rooms. Cleaned on daily basis and fruit basket with local wine was offered upon arrival. We had mentioned that we were spending our honeymoon and that was our small surprise. Entered the room and they had lit candles and music. Just amazing!!! Perfect surprise and warm hospitality. Breakfast was different every day and had handmade... More

Nice location, excellent view. The place is awesome. Some tips to make this hotel really perfect: Buy new mattress and slippers. Breakfast is not rich but it is fresh. Above all, it is the hospitality from the two sisters that make you will visit it again...

We had a nice ground level room with vaulted walls my son compared to a hobbit-hole. Large veranda; elegant bathroom. No wifi or serviceable TV, but that's not why you go to Monemvasia. Breakfast fine (continental)--with wonderful juice and quite good coffee in cafe. Superb location in the kastro. Open in the off season (at least over New Year), when... More

Traveling is about the experience, the new, the unexpected and the truly exceptional. I've just read a few of the reviews re the bizantino and maybe I do understand them. When people expect the same wherever they go they may be disappointed with both the bizantino and even monemvasia, it is not the five star hotel experience, how wonderful! This... More

We spent two nights in Room P16 (up a spiral staircase, shared balcony). Although the room was very simple, being able to spend the night in the Monemvasia Castle more than made up for it. Also, watching the sunrise over the sea from the hotel room was really lovely. We had the hotel breakfast which was simple but fine. Not... More

We did not stay at the hotel, but sit down at the bar for a drink after coming down from the "acropolis". Since it was already almost dinner time, I asked if it was possible to have dinner: it was excellent! We had excellent food overall in Greece, but in this restaurant we tasted something new and really rich in... More

I didn't see rooms of any other hotel in the area so it's difficult to compare... In any case I liked my room to which I had to climb a couple of stairs. The price of another room below was slightly lower but I decided to pay 10 euros for the view. The room was big enough with two beds,... More
