The neoclassical building that houses Rex hotel is standing downtown Kalamata city on a pedestrian area with many shops and cafes. The location is extremely convenient since the visitor is in walking distance from the Archeological Museum and temple of Agioi Apostoloi and of course if someone feels like walking a bit more the harbor is not very far.

Very good, comfortable hotel which is located in the centre of the Kalamata. Ideal for the new part of the city as well as the old & just a short walk to the sites and the twice weekly market. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room was nice a spacious. Bathroom was larger than other hotels I had stayed. Bed was firm and sheets were very clean. Wifi worked well. Air conditioning could have been better. Took long time to cool room. Staff were very pleasant and willing to accommodate any of our requests.

Hotel REX is a little hotel, very closely located to the historical center with all its restaurant and bars. Don't expect an international 4star hotel with all the shine and glimmer... Hotel REX is still very much retro, but not in a bad but rather charming way. The elevator takes ages to close its old doors, the keys are still... More

OK - back on the road exploring Greece. A couple of things to point out before we start - Greece is busting at the seams this summer with plenty of hotels showing above 90% occupancy, something which, over many years we have not seen. Part of the reason we feel is the unrest in the Middle East which has caused... More

I was so excited to see a stunning building in Kalamata and had high hopes as it was 4* rated... I booked on the spot and went to my room feeling like a queen.... Oh so disappointed! The room is reminiscent from 1970s on a good day. The curtains thin and old, the mattress hard as rocks ( how do... More

I went to Kalamata on a business trip and on arrival saw this hotel. It is located in the center of the city; the rooms are spacious, very clean and quiet. The breakfast buffet is incredible. I loved the fact that there was a very large variety plus local delicacies. One morning I had to leave at 5am and upon... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night in June 2013. Its position within walkable distance of the bus station was a plus for us. It's close to the shops and the old town but it is quite a hike to the marina. Whilst a little old-fashioned the room was clean if not spacious. The air-conditioning was ineffective. We had... More

Hotel was good, but no refrigerator in the room. Window sight is good. Room was small, but neat. Meteora is wonderful. The breakfast was poor, untasty olives, bad coffee. Local shops do not accept credit cards.
