We visited this hotel with our 2 children for 3 nights. First bad impression gave the road to this hotel since you have to follow a path which is narrow and very tough. If you dont own an SUV then you will probably harm your vehicle. This is something that the owner smartly avoid to say of course. We arrived... More

A great boutique hotel in the picturesque village of Portaria. Quirky rooms, friendly and helpful staff. Each room has its own character with amazing views we stayed at Kiparissia room. The food in the restaurant is freshly prepared and absolutely yummy. The narrow road leading to the hotel is a bit of a challenge so be prepared for an uphill... More

My wife and I stayed in this hotel with our 1.5-year-old son. We booked to stay for 2 nights in the Pilio suite, but we ended up staying only 1 night. At the time of booking we requesteda baby cot with a proper mattress as well as wireless internet connection in the room (the rooms do not have wi fi... More

We just stayed at this excellent hotel. The views are breath-taking the staff is very helpful and the place is unique. It is very clean and breakfast is individually made. Each room is uniquely made with great taste and allowing to enjoy the views from numerous windows. If I will go to Pillion again I will definitely stay there again... More

A wonderful picturesque hotel in beautiful Pelion. Beautiful rooms. Spotless clean! Truly wonderful homemade breakfast. The hotel has an amazing view and a beautiful garden. It offers a very nice menu. The hotel's owners and staff are very friendly and hospitable and they tend to the guest's every need. The narrow road to the hotel (about 700 metres long) is... More

We stayed for 3 days in what is really a nicely decorated and clean hotel. The food was above average and the view from most places was amazing. A very good idea for a weekend escape from the city. What ruined the good experience was payment time. The owner (at least back in 2012) could not accept credit cards, I... More

Great view on the great mountain of Pelion. Everything else was awful! Many broken parts on the room, expensive and very bad and rude attitude. They do not have pricelist, they give different prices on the phone, they require minimum stay and they give you 10 euros discount if they do not issue invoice! What a thief!

MIKROS BORIAS, (young north wind), is one my favorite places in the world. This, I believe, becomes even more of a value if you take into consideration that I grew up in this mountain, Pelion, this area has been my playground ever since I was a kid. Although I traveled allover the world, despite the fact that I have stayed... More

The view from the restaurant and rooms is unique, panoramic view includes the city of Volos, and the villages of Portaria and Makrinitsa. Τhe staff is willing to serve and to satisfy any request. The internet service is problematic. The WiFi was only available in restaurant - cafe, while the wired connection at the room wasn't successful.

It was the best hotel we had in our two weeks tour in Greece. The place is quiet and very pleasant, quite remote but not too far from the big city of Volos. The room was spacious, convenient and very tastefully decorated. But as good as the hotel is, the best thing in it is the stuff, especially the owner... More
