“Beautiful property!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We stayed at Lazareto Hotel for one night and we were lucky enough to be given the 'lighthouse' room since that was the only available room when we arrived at 8pm without a reservation.

It was the most beautiful and unique hotel room I have ever stayed at, making our night very special. The lighthouse was turned into a really cute room and it was obvious that the owners paid great attention to detail. From the modern bathroom arrangement to the hidden lighting on the roof beams (colors changing to fit the mood), it all showed that great effort had been put into creating a special experience for guests (something you don't often see in Greece i must say).

On the down side was the breakfast which was a very basic continental breakfast which can definitely be improved upon because it doesn't reflect the overal quality of the hotel, and might ruin the experience for some. For us, the overall experience compensated for the bad breakfast.

We would definitely stay there again and next time we would book the lighthouse room ahead of time!

Room Tip: Lighthouse room is excellent and unique, and very romantic

Thank you for your kind words,

Your advice for improving breakfast has already been settled since we are having a buffet on the weekends filled with local delicacies, home made bread and marmelades.

We are looking forward to be seeing you again in beautuful Monemvasia.

We were lucky to arrive at the end of the season. The hotel was almost empty and very quiet. The view from the room was lovely, and the room itself beautiful and rather comfortable. The breakfast was served outside and was nice. The hotel is quite suitable fot disabled travellers.

Room Tip: You'll need a mosquito repellant

The hotel is newly build with nice rooms great view (however not inside the walls of the old city) and quite modern. However, service is not there... Wifi wasn't working, restaurant was only open for breakfast. Maybe because of the time we visited ...

We stayed here one night and we found our room to be very comfortable. Only problem we had was the bathroom plumbing a bit of a problem after having a shower, water from drain flooded the floor. The room was nice but the breakfast was good but could of been better considering the price of the accommodation. Staff not overally friendly but ok.

Monemvassis is gorgeous old town.

Friends from the U.S. were visiting us in Greece and had reservations at the Lazareto Hotel. Two days before they, and the couple they were traveling with, were to arrive at the Lazareto, the husband died of a heart attack. The death was extremely sudden and, of course, very traumatic for his wife and all of us.
I wrote to the hotel right away telling them what happened in the hopes that they would not charge for the room, given the circumstances, despite a "no refund" policy. They did not respond. I wrote again. No response then or now, a week later. I told them they could verify the death by checking with the local police here in case they thought this was not true.
Needless to say, given the legendary Greek filoxenia, it's hard to believe they would be so uncaring. I cannot imagine staying here next time we go to Monemvasia.

We have stopped at the hotel Lazareto for 2 nights.
The rooms were clean but not very charming. We were quite close from a parking. Som rooms are better situated with direct view on the sea. Be aware to choose them (and forget the room in the tower).
The access to the sea is difficult and the sea not very clean. Tehre is no swimming pool.
The situation of this hotel is nevertheless appropriate to discover the old city and take beenefit from the numlerous taverns in the the new city.
Not appropriate for a long stay.
Very good breakfast.

We stayed at the Lazareto in the tower room for one evening and it was absolutely magical. This hotel is on the island but under the rock away from the noisy groups of tourists. Our room was amazing as were the views and the gardens. Very serene. Breakfast was excellent with ample selections and friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again and would also recommend it to others touring the area.
