Basic Greek accommodation. Beds comfortable. Air con efficient but not overbearing. Rooms cleaned daily and linen etc changed regularly. Good pool area. Handy for town and buses. Don't expect The Ritz cos you're not paying for it. You will get VFM

I stayed in the Hotel Elsa after it was booked by my mother. We wanted somewhere close to Skiathos Town and relatively inexpensive. For the price we paid, it was perfect. We arrived after a short 10 minute taxi ride, up the ramp and through a grapevine. What a lovely way to arrive in Greece! We stayed in the studios... More

We stayed for a week in room 23 and overall had a great holiday in Skiathos. The Elsa Studios are basic, the official price list in the rooms shows it as a 1 star as opposed to the 2 stars in the brochure. Our studio was small but with a good sized terrace leading out towards the pool. The cooking... More

Friendly, clean and comfortable. Great value for money. I would recommend to other couples and families with older kids as location was good but a bit of an uphill walk from the town. we wouldn't hesitate to book again. Thank you to Elsa and her lovely family

Quite literally - whilst we were staying at Elsa's for the umpteenth time, there was a brief, early morning thunder storm resulting in a gorgeous rainbow which appeared to end in Elsa's cosy pool bar!! It says it all really. Still the same excellent basic facilities, comfy, clean rooms, and extremely friendly, helpful family and staff (Sue), but with the... More
