“The pool and the rooms are great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011

We stayed in Mystras two nights. Our room had a balcony, with a nice view over the main street. The room was big and comfortable, had wonderful sleep. The bathroom was big and clean. Breakfast was delicious. Acces to internet was easy. We asked for laundry services, and despite the fact that they don't offer it, we were provided with it at a very fair price.
The pool in the middle of the hot summer was a blessing. It is surrounded by a very beautiful garden. We spent both our afternoons there.
The site is within walking distance.
The hotel doesn't look nice from the outside, as it is just plain.. However as soon as you enter you find very friendly staff and big rooms with couches and books. The elevator was a plus (specially after coming back from the site!).

Having arrived after a 3 hour drive it was a relief to arrive at the Byzantion Hotel. My room had a lovely balcony which over looked the castle and there was a swimming pool within the hotel, which you need after visiting the ancient site. I received a nice continental breakfast and the staff were all very friendly. The hotel is in a central position in Mystras with parking.

We stumbled across the Byzantion by chance and were so delighted with the location, accommodations, friendly staff and unbelievably low rates that we added days to our stay. Magnificent, charming location, steps from the archaeological site (and beautiful view of it from most rooms). Hint: Sparta, only 10 minutes away by car, is a monotonous town of no interest or charm. If you have to visit Sparta, stay at the Byzantion and drive into Sparta each day. Don't miss the sweet local marmelade as a topping for your breakfast yogurt.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a balcony view of the archaeological site

The pool of the hotel, in an old garden is fantastically romantic, next to old orange trees. Similar: taking yours breakfast on a balcony-terras viewing over the garden, what more can one want? The owner had some nice books about Mistras etc in the lobby. In the mrorning one can see ancient Mistras from the room's balcony.

The hotel building itself is far from nice when viewed from the outside.

Our rooms were very nice, quiet with stunning views. The common area is excellent with good WiFi (also computers available for free use). Staff was most helpful.

We books via orbitz and the hotel had no record of our reservation. I had a printout so it was no problem. Hotel was overbooked - as we heard later from heated discussions in the lobby. So you might want to send email directly to confirm reservation. We had a room on top floor overlooking the square. Swallows nesting in the eves. Nice view of castle which opens early and closes early so, with a good breakfast offered, plan to get up early. April, so did not try pool.

Room Tip: confirm reservation with the hotel directly

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2009

This hotel was fine but had a dated, slightly cluttered feel to it. Nothing special at all but nothing particularly wrong with it either. The location was great - near a lovely bakery and restaurant. The pool outside was nice, but not heated, so a bit chilly in May! If you are looking at places to stay in this area the restaurant had rooms above it. I don't know what these were like, but I'd try them if I stayed in this area again.
