Lena was such a great host! She treated us like we were old friends. We had a great time. The pension is very old and interesting, with beautiful antiques. The quaint garden patio was very lovely and peaceful, with pretty flowers. We stayed in the largest room, (triple) which is a teeny bit more, but worth it. I would stay... More

Prime location. Beautiful historical building with charming rooms and squeeky floors with all necessary amenities. The best part: Lena. She is a great host, generous and welcoming. She wants you to feel right at home. She offers the best tourist information in town, her breakfasts are tasty, generous and served in her peaceful garden. What a nice way to start... More

Lena, who runs the hotel, is very sweet and very helpful. Her recommendations on where to eat were spot on! The hotel is in a perfect area close to all historical places, restaurants, and shops. We stayed on the floor and had wifi in the room. We would definitely stay here again, and recommend it for everyone. The only negative... More

Lena, the host of Pension Rigas, makes you feel very welcome. In the middle of the historic centre of Nafplio, Pension Rigas is very well situated. Furthermore, Rigas has beautiful rooms (the building is fantastic and historic) and you can enjoy a perfect Greek breakfast. Lena is a foodie and you will know it :) We enjoyed our stay very,...

A lovely Australian-Greek woman is in charge here. She will help you choose what you do, and is lovely to chat with. The room was nice, with linnen and wool blankets, aircon-heating etc. you can also make tea/coffee in your room. We enjoyed the best breakfast yet in greece. We got a fair price in the low season too. This... More

Lena is a wonderful, cheerful host at Rigas Pension. We felt very welcome, and can now say we have a friend in Greece. The rooms where clean and tidy. The breakfast was perfect. Again, Lena is wonderful to hang around. We can only recommend you to stay at this place!

Breakfast is lovely and was served... More

My daughter and I stayed here for a couple of nights recently and had a wonderful time. Lena was an incredibly gracious and friendly host, and prepared a delicious breakfast each morning for all of the guests. The rooms are fairly small but very cozy and clean with comfortable beds. There is also an electronic kettle in the rooms with... More

The best things about this place are the friendly lady who manages the place (Lina, a Greek who was raised in Australia), the fabulous breakfast she prepares, and the lovely garden she serves it in. (Note: Breakfast is not served until 8:30.). The worst things (at least in our room) were the very uncomfortable mattress and the slippery shower floor... More
