I have stayed in countless hotels, and it is very rare to find a hotel that has everything that this one has to offer. First and foremost, the staff were outstanding - all of them (Mrs. Dellas, Apostolia, and Olympia). They welcomed us warmly from the minute we stepped inside and I literally felt as though I was among family. It wasn't just about being helpful; they were genuinely interested to spend time with us and just talk.
Having previously left a tiny hotel room in Athens, the large and clean room at Dellas was outstanding, and the balcony was welcomed. Breakfast deserves a big mention also! Eggs, bacon, sausages, breads, cakes, jams in every flavor, spreads, juices, coffee, tea, and dolmades... And that's only what I can remember. There was more but I'm drawing a blank.
The location of the hotel is ideal in my opinion. It is halfway between Kalambaka and Kastraki, both of which are nice towns with shops and scenery. The shops do close early though (seemed most were closed around 3). Anyway, we had no car and simply walked. It was 5-10 minutes tops, and we were casually strolling, but there is a bus if you need one. And I should mention Dellas is literally across the street from some of the stunning rock formations, so there were times we simply sat outside staring at the rocks and talking the night away.
Anyway, this post has been long enough. Just know that I am not the kind of person who gushes over people and places, but this hotel (and, of course, the Meteora as well) was absolutely amazing and deserves praise. I offer the highest recommendations.
