This hotel is simple, unfussy and charming. The staff are a delight, the rooms are comfortable with some quirky charm and the location is a dream! We have been very happy to use his as our base for the week and would recommend to anyone. Just one word of warning, if you don't like lots of stairs to your room make sure you get a room on the first or second floor. This was not an issue for us but for older or less mobile individuals its worth asking ahead of time.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our Hotel, an imposing, tall, 600 year old building, has gathered a rich history over the passing of the centuries. During the days of Turkish Rule, the building housed members of high ranking Turkish military who made many changes to the buildings architecture - even built a Hamam.In the garden and next to that, a room to secure their slaves (where you can still see the metallic rings nailed to the walls). In the beginning of the 19th Century, the building was used as a French embassy and later was inhabited by the great Greek political figure, Eleftherios Venizelos, who also used it as his political offices until his move to Athens, when he took power as Prime Minister of Greece. The Hotel has 10 beautiful rooms - the 2 of which are maisonettes - fully restored and traditionally decorated to provide our guests with an especially warm and welcome feeling. All rooms have modern conveniences (WC, telephone, TV, mini-bar, air-conditioning and Central Heating in winter) ensuring our guests have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. ... more less
