Only location was ok, and may be the breakfast. Nothing else. The showers do not work, rooms were so small... in the first floor our friends could'nt sleep at all during the night.we were not seeking luxury, but sleep and shower.

Very good hotel for the price. Great location. Beautiful city of Kalambaka and near the city of Trikala (18 km). We stayed one night for the Christmas Theme Park of Trikala. Meteora are only ten minutes away and there is public road to park your car immediately.

Very friendly helpful staff, great location at the top of the town near the " Rocks" Nice hearty breakfast and good rental rates too. Perfect for visiting Meteora. The town has lots of great shops bars and restaurants, so a few nights stay here is ideal as theres lots to see and do

Nice beds, clean white bedspreads, heat, great sized hot shower, decent breakfast, and centrally located. Good value, one of the nicer cheap hotels in Greece. Did I mention almost comfy beds, this is a big plus for Greece.

The photos shown by the management is somewhat dated and does not really show the real condition of the rooms and lobby area. U are better judging it by traveler photos. We are a couple staying here with two luggages. We can't even find place to lay down ONE of our luggage let alone two. In the end we had...

We booked on line and the rooms on display were not fancy but looked adequate. When we were shown to our room it was squalid and definitely bore no resemblance to what they had online. So watch out for the horrid little rooms at the back and make sure they don't book those for you as they also have no...

Isn't it just nice to find a good hotel right on the road up to the Meteora monastaries? - you can park almost right outside the hotel, and further more we were very surprised to hear how cheap a room in this hotel actually was, considering the central location close to one of Greece's most visited areas. It's simply great...

Stayed at this hotel recently had a great time, breakfast fantastic, staff amazing, free wifi. 10 minute walk from station even with luggage.
