I found this place through visitmeteora.com and I loved it. The room I had was small and basic but that's all i needed. The little taverna attached to it, where meals are served, was always full (I had the best grilled lamb chops ever) and the breakfast included with the room was hearty (eggs, ham, cheese, fruit, bread, coffee).

I had called ahead to let them know we would be checking in late and asked if they could wait for us. We finally made it around10:30PM. As soon as we stopped the car, Nikos was there to welcome us, he had stepped away from his restaurant to greet us, take our luggage and check us in. We even had... More

We are actually here now and are so impressed we wanted to get a review on now. The cleanest most comfortable rooms, air con included. The friendliest hosts who are so helpful. We ate at the taverna attached, The Gardenia this evening and were treated to the most excellent meal with so many free extras we rolled out hardly able... More

The hotel is in the middle of this samll village.We had a quadruple bedroom that was clean but a bit small. We could see the monasteries from the balcony. It was quiet but close to the church and thus to the bells... The restaurant serves very tasteful typical greek plates. The breakfast is very copious. The owner and the personnel... More

Meteora is wonderful, and this was the perfect place to stay. The proprietor is wonderfully nice, helpful, and speaks excellent english. The hotel is squeaky clean. Their restaurant was spectacular. Would love to go again.

If you are looking for Greek hospitality & friendliness in one of the most magical places in the country then Guest House Plakias is where you should head. Opposite the church & looked down upon by the monastries that tower above, this is the best place to enjoy your stay in Meteora. On my arrival I was immediately welcomed into... More

We have stayed in Kastraki for one night and it was an excellent experience. Meteora are the natural wonder, and the Giesthouse is in the great location. The owner speaks excellent English and he also runs a tavern with delicious Greek food. Rooms are spacious, clean and with a great view to Meteora. But, who wants a good night sleep,... More

We had an amazing time during our 2 night stay at Guest House Plakias! The owner and staff truly knew what hospitality was. The included breakfast was excellent and we loved sitting on their outdoor patio in the mornings. The restaurant also had amazing food for lunch/dinner and we ate there for almost every meal. The owner gave us all... More

We had a glitch in our itinerary as our flight into Athens was canceled, so we called Guest House Plakias to change our check in date. Owner Nikos spoke excellent English. He was extremely warm and friendly. He gave us a room on the ground floor with discount (all the rooms upstairs with view of meteora were taken.) Their main... More

Can't say more how impressed we were with the place. Large cozy room. Nice bath, clean and nice view of the imposing meteora. Most importantly, cordial and attentive owner who also manage a nice taverna below. Perfect for holidays. The breakfast is included and try their egg cooked more like asian fried egg than european scrambled one. Delicious !
