“Well hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

It's a worrying adventure finding this place as it is located in the old part of town in a very narrow street with some nearby buildings looking shabby from the outside. Hold your nerve and continue on as it is worth it!
The decor is superb, done in antique furnishings and fabrics. The overall tone is dark timber and lavish accessories. The owners are more than helpful along with their employees too.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a Deluxe Double Room-Attic. The booking engine states that the room has views over Lake Pamvotida which may overstate your expectations. It has a small view of the lake over rusty rooftops with a power line intersecting it so it's not exactly something to spend a lot of time contemplating.
Breakfast was quite good also, with a heavy accent on sweet Greek breakfast dishes and served downstairs in a charming layout.
I would also caution that the bathroom has sloping beams in it at the very spot where one stands before the basin so if you are more than say 165cm tall your head would be in constant danger. Curiously the bathroom lighting is limited to the sink area so the shower is in dark relief. Perhaps this is so you don't notice that the shower door leaks water on the floor.
Overall the property is still great, one of those memorable adventure properties!

The place is runed by a family that has made an excellent work in every aspect! The hotel is so cozy, so warm and so cute that you'll be amazed from every detail of it!
From the bet which is very comfy, till the location which is central but in a retreat street that will make your walks to the wonderful city of Ioannina very easy and in the same time will make your sleep abrupt!

People at the front desk are very helpful with a smile, ready to help you in every question you might have!

I have the best impressions for the place! I have visited 5 time the past year!!!
Make sure you book head in advance cause the hotel is cute tinny place with a few rooms!!!

Room Tip: Book on the back of the hotel! No noise AT ALL from the street that passing by!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2011

My daughters and me stayed at this very pretty hotel for two days.
Our room was very spacious , with a double bed and a sofa converting to double bed , also .Bathroom was very modern ( I would suggest a bigger selection of toileteries).
The hotel , a 10 room building of the 18th century is totally refurbished , but respecting all the atmosphere of the past . Very luxurious furniture at the lobby and very beautiful abbey style tables at the breakfast area.
Very friendly people and very proud for their achievement , certainly worth it !!
We had a very peaceful night sleep . As far as the breakfast : for my taste it was enough ( home made marmelades , cakes , pies etc ) but perhaps some others would prefer a Four Seasons style breakfast .
Last but not least : the price was a bargain !! 75 euros for a three-bed room , breakfast included !!
Highly recommended !!
