Excelent hotel, near the center of Portaria, with parking,The breakfast very good with local specialities (honey, marmelades of local fruits,)Clean rooms, quiet, the swimming small, the parking is hard to get but you dont need to drive in the village is to explore it on foot, except if you would like to explore Pilio.

We are a couple with a 3 year old and visited Despotiko in September 2014. The hotel is conveniently located a 5 minute walk down a stone pebbled street from the main square, and is both central and quiet at the same time. The hotel has ample underground parking with easy access to the main lobby. The rooms are of... More

A lovely place to stay while visiting Portaria. The road to reach it is very narrow and with stones but you can find it easily as there are signs the whole way. The hotel has a Parking and we always found a space as we were there during weekdays. The room we got was by the pool side, modern, very... More

This hotel would get 5 stars but for the difficulty of finding the location--poor and confusing signage--and poor access road on main road. Our group had a 9-passenger bus and were unable to drive the narrow, rocky road to the hotel parking garage, parking off street off the main road. Once we got to the hotel, the decor, staff, rooms,... More

The rooms in the old refurbished building are rather small. All rooms on the ground level lack any view, try to avoid! the taverna next door is nice, but within 5 minutes range there are dozens others... give it a try!

This way exceeded my expectations. Was staying in Ayios Yiannis and the hotel owner recommended I stay here on my next move. Said 'Trust me, you will like it !!! I will book it for u"...arrived knowing nothing. Blown away by the lavishness of the rooms. Stunning. Beautiful complex. The building I stayed in was huge and I think 150yrs... More

I have been to this hotel during the summer and winter as well and every time i love it more and more. I am Greek and I live abroad and it really gives me an amazing feeling of hospitality. The rooms are renovated carefully and with respect to tradition. It is a unique hotel with lots of history behind it... More

The hotel complex includes 2 new buildings with very large rooms and a nice pool. To access the hotel we had to walk, climbing a small street but the hotel staff took care of our lugage. The view of the Logos gulf from the third floor was gorgeous. The room had all the required luxus for a 41/2 star hotel.... More
