“Wonderful place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

It was a wonderful place. The owners take care a lot of us! They prepare for us very big breakfast and all the food was handmade and one of the more delicious that I tasted in Greece!!! Also, the room was perfect: very clean and with beautiful views to the sea. If you go to the Monemvasia, you must go to this beautiful and really cheep hostal!

We went for the second time to Xifoupolis and were really amazed by the hotel and the hospitality of the owners. The hotel is at few minues walk from the beach and a few minutes drive to the city of Monemvasia. The staff is extremely helpful, and you really feel like at home. The appartments are clean with an amazing view on the sea (you are not in front of the Monemvasia Rock but you have the view of the entire bay) and the big pool just downstairs is a great thing when you want to have a jump unto fresh water.
Breakfest is all made from home grown ingredients, and every single morning you have a selection of freshly home cooked cakes and greek specialities.
If you are looking for a quiet and beatiful holiday in Greece this is definitely the place to go!

Room Tip: Best rooms are on the floor with little more shadow on the balcony

Although a little bit further from the rock than I'd imagined (my fault), there was an excellent view of the sea and rock from the balcony, albeit the view was unfortunately obscured by a partly built building. The rooms were better than serviceable (probably very good for a self catering holiday) and reminiscent of a beach location. Rooms were clean, though the showers were cramped and could be better. Aside from the value (excellent) the real highlight was the extraordinary hospitality of the owners who really couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful (not to mention the delicious and mostly home-made breakfast). If you don't want to stay on the rock (we didn't) you could do worse.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the rock

On our way from Nafplio to Githion, we stayed one night in this nice little hotel.
We were welcomed by the owners and shown our room, which ended up being a spacious 1 bedroom apartment. They made sure we had everything we need and provided advice on pharmacies & doctors when we needed it.
The apartment was simple but big and clean, and the surroundings were very quiet. It is a 5-10 mins drive to Monemavasia, so you will need a car to explore the area.
The highlight was the breakfast: home made biscuits and cake, and the owner gave us good to pack for the trip.
We were the only guests of the hotel, and we really felt like part of the family.

One thing though - there is wifi available but it doesn't work on iPhone/iPad: we had to change the router settings first (which they let us do) to get it to work.

We went completely out of season, and apparently the only guests in more than a week.
The place is several kilometres outside of Monemvasia.
The rooms are spacious but simple. The breakfast includes some home-made cooking.
The WiFi password gives a clue to the age of mum and pop - warm and friendly with enough English to communicate - pop is well travelled, having worked on the ships. It is mum and pop that make this place, and at very cheap prices compared with other places we stopped in Greece.
