The room was clean and fit three (for the most part, the room door did bump one of the twin beds). The staff was moderately friendly. The breakfast (not included with the price of the room) was completely subpar, but was offset by the redeeming value found in cold air conditioning. My main complaint was the sad food and the...

We stayed two nights and enjoyed our stay very much. Easy to find & in a very quiet area, 5 mins walk to the waterfront. Unfortunately there was a ferry strike the day after we arrived but the owners did all in their power to organise our trip back to Athens for our next flight - we would have never... More

Very friendly, helpful and funny owner, stunning courtyard, a lovely, quiet property set back from the harbour among the alleys, very comfortable room and bed, an excellent breakfast, efficient Wi-Fi, very reasonable price. Highly recommended!

We stayed at this pension in August and took the family room with 3 single beds and a double. As accommodations in hydra are quite expansive, Achilleas Pension was an affordable choice. The room does not provide much intimacy but beds are OK and you have a small fridge if you wish to store some foods for a small lunch.... More

Ok, I'll start with the Ups. Compared to most other "Pensions"/Guest Houses/Hotels in Hydra, this one is close to the main center of the Island. Being near, and not in the central harbour, means less noise and that's a plus for me. Their wifi connection was really good. Meaning steady, 16mbps and 2.something upload, which is better than the connection... More

I usually never go with someone I meet on the street for a hotel. But this lady got us to go to her pension. Turns out it was one I had read about. Got a good room. Even had t.v.with English and German Channel. Wonderful Greek style breakfast which we could not finish but kept in our refrigerator for later.... More

The owners were delightful and really worked hard to communicate, despite not knowing a lot of English. Their adult son helped run the place and knew English well. When we arrived, he showed us several different apartments to fit our family of 5 and let us pick which one we wanted. The views were great of hillside homes- a far... More

I could have done with a chair, a mosquito net and a better shower. The place is not new but they do their best to keep it they clean and tidy. Probably one of the few cheap options in Hydra , so if you don't have very high expectations it's fine.

Going to Hydra is a must for Athens visitors. Cause it's a 2 hours on a boat and you will find yourself in an entire different place, a small paradise! 2-3 days there is enough time to get you completely relaxed! The reason why? It's a striclty pedestrian island, no vehicles are allowed! But where to stay? As the place... More

Cozy Greek guesthouse with family atmosphere Excellent base for visiting hydra city. The son of the family personally welcomes you upon arrival at the harbour and makes sure you don’t get lost in the narrow ancient streets. Just a short walk from the port. The family does its best to make you feel at home. The pension is a beautiful... More
