The hotel is a typical example of a series of hotels built in the 60s and 70s in Greece with a modernistic style. Despite his age, the place has been renovated completely in a very elegant and classic style. Space is abundant both in the exterior and interior areas, which is a rather rare thing to be found in such... More

Such a unique location for a luxury hotel! Great service and rooms! It was peaceful and quiet so we had a relaxing stay! We would definitely book at Xenia Palace again. Ideal for every season since in the winter it's very cozy and in the summer it has a huge pool!

We visited this hotel for 2 nights at the start and end of a group tour on two consecutive weeks as part of a tour of mainland Greece. The holiday was selected as it included the Pelion peninsula where this hotel is situated. The views across the peninsula, towards Evvia and beyond to a snow capped Mount Parnassus were stunning....

Rooms are nice size, with all the providings for a hotel on this category. I liked the common areas, specially the bar area,... More

This is a very old hotel (I have visited it in the 1970s with my family!) that used to belong to the public owned chain of hotels. It has been bought and renovated by a well known hotel chain. The location is great on the outskirts of Portaria village and with views of Volos and the bay beyond. The rooms... More

We have just returned! Clean, very kind people, spledid view, really nice breakfast, unfortunately the room was small and the extra bed was really uncomfortable, but they changed it immediately as we asked. Nice pool.

Excellent location, helpful people, amazing view and great hospitality! The swimming pool was a little bit cold but it was nice if you consider the high temperature of Volos city. The staff is very helpful. The only dissatisfying was the plumbing of the room. They could renovated also as hotel has been.
