The room was a good value for money but it could have been a little more modern. The room was clean but it didn't have a good air flow. We were with the balcony door always open to have some fresh air. We didn't have any view from our room and I am not sure if the hotel has rooms... More

Popped in here a few times during our visit to Kalamaki from some very good and exceptionally cheap cocktails :). The choice is huge and they are nice and strong! Definitely worth a stop whilst you're there.

The hotel is in a great location on the main strip. The room was basic but dated, it was spacious and very clean.

The pool area did not have one spot that you... More

If you travelled to Greece in the 70's then you will know what to expect here at the Vanessa. The room layout, the furnishings, flooring, bathroom and mini kitchen are all newer versions of that 70's theme with added air con, microwave and a TV (with no English channels). The basic rooms style is perfect as a base for a... More

We thank you for your review, and we're sorry you did not have a nice stay with us. The photos online of our rooms were taken here at the hotel in our rooms, but each room is different so you may have booked a room that you did not see online. Also, since you searched the room online you would... More

Been to Kalamaki lots of times. Always visit the Vanessa Hotel. The staff are so welcome and caring. Brilliant with the children. Always made to feel so welcome whether its for a drink, snack or just to use the pool.
