Only a one night stay but well worth the experience! The surroundings of the old city /fortress are fantastic and a steady stroll at night makes all the difference! A trip you must make for 1 or 2 nights early summer or fall when its not to hot. The owners are really friendly and go out of their way to... More

Ardamis offers a wonderful experience. The hotel is situated inside the old town surrounded by the castle's walls. The area of Monemvasia is wonderful and there's really no need to go into any more details here. The room (number 19) was a two floor apartment; on the ground level was the bathroom and the living room while the upper floor... More

I had one night. The room was very beautiful and unique. The view from the room is like a postcard to the sea. The thing that was bad is the walking from the car to the room.if you're lucky it's 1 kilometers and with the lagedge heavy it's worse.

If you're thinking about staying at Ardamis you should read this review all the way through first. I find the effusive comments on many Ardamis reviewers here unbalanced. Ardamis is unconventional accommodation, a collection of apartments in houses spread around in Moni Emvassi, a walled village of ancient origins on a rocky island conected by a causeway to the more...

In the heart of the Old Town, this is a lovely hotel with equally lovely owners. The rooms are full of character and features - very comfy. All so clean - there is even a sign under the bed saying that they clean there! The couple who run it are so friendly. Do - take a drink on the terrace!... More

We had a wonderful experience at this hotel. The rooms were charming and I had the best night's sleep there. The bed was so comfortable. The owner was very nice and helpful and I will definitely visit again. If you are a couple or single, I recommend room 19.

Very friendly reception from the couple of owners. We had a very nice suite apartment. Full of amenities. Delicious breakfast over a place with a fantastic view. Either to all houses-monuments of the castle or directly to the sea. While drinking your fresh orange juice, you may watch sailboats passing through. Location quite near to the Gate of the Castle,...

We absolutely loved our visit to the medieval walled castle city of Monemvasia and our stay at the Ardamis Guesthouse! The propietor Bill, welcomed us as if family and provided a porter to get our bags to the little two-bedroom house we stayed in. It was a beautiful and historic place to stay with fantastic views from every window. We... More

We drove here from Kardamyli. Parked and wound our way to the hotel, where the welcome was profuse. Had a bottle of water to relax while arrangements were finalized and then moved into our lovely room. Our room was the center of the Monemvasia experience; but it was also a haven; and it was where we went to sit and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Traditional Guesthouse Ardamis is housed in the most significant building of the Monemvasia castle, whose history goes many centuries back. It was the governor's house during the Venetian rule and a residency during the Ottoman rule, while two Byzantine emperors have also been welcomed there. The building was renovated with respect, without absolutely any alteration of the areas, keeping its particular architectural elements intact, thus highlighting its beauty and history, while at the same time offering all modern luxuries. When the renovation started a Byzantine coin was found in the ruins dated back to 711 A.D. which is now exhibited in the Numismatic Museum of Athens and is unique in its kind. Some of the guest house special elements are the unique Castle tower, 14 meters high with seven windows, an 800 years old marble well, a true copy whereof is exhibited in the Museum of Istanbul and a picture whereof is exhibited in the Castle Museum, and of course the guest house 100 m2 balcony right above the sea which many Greek and foreign magazines and visitors have called . Currently the guest house is an amazing complex of rooms, suites and apartments joining the history with the living present of Monemvasia. Ardamis Traditional Guest Houses is the ideal destination for honeymoon. Quality never suffers a crisis; this is our firm belief which we prove everyday to all our clients. We shall continue to offer state-of-art services so that you may enjoy the comfort, the amenities and the ambience of Ardamis guest houses. Thousands of readers of various magazines have classified us as the best guest house in Greece, for three consecutive times; we are awarded for our efforts but also committed to constantly improve the quality of our services, even in difficult periods as this. In our website you will find various press releases, and awards. One of the voting procedures was held by the "Voyager" magazine which conducted a poll among 60,000 readers; with a percentage of 96.68% our guest house won the first prize across Greece!!!! Selecting your accommodation based on the price is unfair to both us and you. ... more   less
