I stayed three nights at Alsos Hotel in November 2014 and very much enjoyed the ambience and the friendly service. The hotel is managed by Yianos and his nephew and both are doing a good job. The breakfast is quite tasty and filling: eggs, toasts, cereals and pastries. The view of the mountain is quite beautiful and the surrounding is... More

Our room was on the first floor with a balcony an the best view we could have asked for. This family runned hotel was well attended to and very clean. The hotel location is great and just a 5 minute walk from restaurants and coffee shops.

Alsos House was great. It's a bit of a walk from the center of town but its located at the feet of the mountains so you can't ask for a better view. Wifi worked well,light breakfast was included, and the room was clean and spacious. The owner and his nephew were very friendly and helpful in answering all my questions.... More

Apart from the wonderful owners and their joy, the hotel was just ok. The air conditioner didn't have sufficient power to heat the bedroom, so I had a cold night in a not so good bed. Besides, is a little far from the city centre, so getting dinner is having do get a taxi, and the driver will charge you... More

Good choice for a budget hotel. Kalambaka is more built up than you expect, however the Alsos hotel is located a close 500m away from the centre, by the path up to the monestaries. It's a nice rambling old villa with more common space than you normally get. Room was fine and clean, had a good nights sleep, with breakfast... More

Our experience was ok here. Rooms were decent but not great and the location was kinda neat with the meteora rocks right there. It was further from the train station than I expected so keep that in mind if you're traveling by train. The owner didn't really do a great job of making our experience any better as his 20... More

Alsos House is perfect;y located just beneath the Meteora. Tolis was very welcoming and a great guy, very friendly and helped with the maps and everything. The rooms were lovely and the view from the balconies just wonderful. Its a short walk (5-8 min) walk to the city sqaure and the path to meteora starts just from the hotel gate... More

We stayed just one night in Kalambaka and Alsos House satisfied all our needs. Position is just under one of the rock of Meteora, and city center is really close, seen is not more than 10 minutes walking. Balcony is super and owner too. Just a thing, bed are not the best.

We choose this hotel to stay close to the track to Agia Triada which is closest monastery to Kalampaka, Superb views from rooms towards rocks. Owner very helpful sharing all he knows about unmarked paths through Meteora. Breakfasts very basic, not a single slice of meat served let alone fruit of any kind. Rooms clean and well maintained. You can... More

Place is close to Meteora (you could start to hike from the hotel), the owner shares everything he knows about the area and you have a clean simple room. If you travel through Greece and are looking for a good place to sleep - this is it.
