We stayed in this place when we were in Meteora. Lovely place, great location, beautiful view and great service.

Owners Nico and Alberta were hospitable and helpful. Their tips on where to go and where to eat was very helpful.

The room we had was spacious and clean. The bathroom size was okay, the water pressure strong and hot water always available. The bed was big and comfortable.

Our stay in this place was very nice. I highly recommend this place.

This B&B is situated right amongst the Meteora Rocks, providing a spot of color to the stark, awesome landscape with its red and yellow building, its green lawn and its owner’s lovely flowers. We enjoyed our spacious apartments with comfortable beds, ensuite bathrooms and kitchenettes. Our suite had a small balcony but you don’t need one as the garden, with seats and tables have the best view. The host family is friendly and hospitable, we really enjoyed their good services and delicious breakfast. We got this accommodation through VisitMeteora but it can be booked independently or through Booking.com. Also recommend a walk up from Kalambaka town as the views are astounding, although the walk is steep.

We stayed two nights on our trip to Meteora and it was perfect. The smaller village of Kastraki is much more "in the rocks" than the larger town of Kalambaka but still has a few places to eat, so it was perfect for our stay. The hotel has four or five rooms and ours had a large separate bedroom and living area as well as a big bathroom. It also has a large outdoor grassy area for sitting with a ink. It's right by some of the larges most interesting rocks and looks picture perfect. The owners were very friendly and helpful when planning our rout for a walk and where to go at sunset. Breakfast was perfect, cheese, eggs, and amazing yoghurt and jam. Wifi worked fine and there was coffee and tea in the room. A wonderful stay.

Hi! We are a couple that recently stayed with Alberta at Archontiko Mesohori Suites & Apartments. We are from the states and travel abroad often. We were so pleasantly greeted by Alberta, and this picturesque hotel is jaw dropping. I mean, it’s fairy tale like. The colors and the mountains behind with the monasteries just beyond make you pull out your camera the minute you arrive. The breakfast was GREAT! It really felt like we were staying at a distant relatives home, and we were really given all of the information we could need to enjoy an amazing day in this wondrous town. Alberta… Thank you so much. We will always remember this wonderful place of yours. Have the best life, and thank you for sharing time with us. Anyone looking to book here, what are you waiting for?? Seriously, go book before the rooms are gone.

This place is magical! The hotel was in a perfect location to explore Meteora. The owners were oh so helpful in giving us tips on how best to spend our time including helping to arrange electric bikes delivered and picked up right at the hotel. Our room was like a mini suite with a little living room area. The outdoor space was delightful and we simply felt like we were staying in a very special place.

It is a small hotel, without an elevator but lots of stairs. It is full of charm, and just a short walk down to the center of the little town. Try the Gardenia taverna. Thet setup a group tour up to the monestaries, which was easier than driving ourselves.

What a memorable stay we had. A beautiful B&B in the most picturesque, as well as wonderful location with great views that one could imagine. the family run place is so clean, rustic and beautifully decorated. The family so welcoming and always ready to offer any help we needed. My husband and I could not fault anything. We highly recommend a stay here if visiting the Meteora Monasteries.

The Archontiko Mesohori is a wonderful recently renovated traditional guesthouse located in the Old Kastraki area of Kalampaka, the gateway town to spectacular Meteora, famous for its six major remote mountain monasteries founded by Orthodox priests seeking safe refuge from Ottoman invaders. The A.M. has six two-room suites with separate bathroom and entryway. My suite (and I assume all of them) had its own individually-controlled air conditioning unit (thank god because it was over 100 degrees outside). The bathroom is a good size with a roomy shower (no tub - shampoo, bath gel, soap, and shower cap all provided) and fluffy cotton towels. Each suite is individually furnished, though all with wood floors and dark wood furniture and area rugs, that evokes a certain comfortable, romantic ambiance. In the bedroom, the linens covering the sleigh bed were very good quality and there was a flat screen TV. (Apparently some of the bedrooms have canopy beds.) The living room had a small kitchenette (two burner stovetop suitable for simple self-catering, don't know that a gourmet three-course meal would be possible), fridge, sink, dishes and cutlery for four, table for two, fireplace, fold-out sofa (double), and flat-screen TV. The fireplace, candles, and general decor hinted at a perfect place for a romatic getaway. I did notice that the rooms seemed to be fitted out for winter, because in addition to the fireplace (wood is provided for the first burn, subsequent fires are 5 euros each, though if you bring your own wood, I suppose there would be no reason to charge for the additional fires), there was a thermostat, radiators, and the A/C unit seemed to have heat settings also. Would be very romantic and cozy in winter. There is an antique phone in the bedroom and a more modern version in the bathroom. The suite, and all the public areas, are very well-kept and clean. I paid 80 euros for my suite and thought it was worth every euro.

A modest continental breakfast is provided in the charming breakfast area, and I found it quite adequate. It featured muesli and cereals, bread and pastry, sliced cold cuts and cheese, fresh fruits, greek yogurt, fried egg, butter, marmalades, honey, and orange juice. They even had filtered coffee, though it also looked like they had a cappucino machine for espressos and the like. There's a TV, fireplace, and sitting areas in the breakfast area and the bar has bottles of liquor, so even if the A.M. doesn't serve dinner, it does look like they sell drinks.

The A.M. is a family-owned and run property, and the same family owns the Hotel Oydesseon in Kalampaka center (though they spend their time in the A.M.). The A.M. has a website, but you have to book by calling directly. (If calling in Europe but outside of Greece, add 00-30 before the number.) The A.M. is located mid-way between Kalampaka center and the village of Kastraki, about 2-4 minutes by car and an easy walk to both (if it isn't 100+ degrees outside!). It's not in the center of the nightlife (such as it is), but its slightly off-the-beaten track location makes it an accessible retreat from the tourist huste and bustle. To get to the A.M., follow the main street through Kalampaka to the end. You'll see the Hotel Oydesseon. Better to stop here and get directions from the hotel staff. But you can also just follow the road to the left as it curves around the hotel. Take the first right that you can. Continue to follow the road but slow down. You'll see a taverna on your left (Taverna Xarama) and a little road directly across from it (on your right) that goes up. Turn right onto the road. Follow this road (don't veer off) for a few minutes. You'll see A.M. on your left. The owners are friendly and will help you chart out your monastery sightseeing plan.

The six monasteries of Meteora are really amazing! The first one is only about 8 minutes by car from the A.M. and the furthest is about 15 minutes. For most of the monasteries, men must wear long pants. For all of the monasteries, no tanks or sleeveless tops for men and women, and all women and girls must wear a skirt, no shorts or pants, no exceptions. And wear sturdy shoes or sandals as there are lots of steps hewn into the mountainside one must traverse to access the monasteries. The monasteries all open at 9 AM but close at different times, the latest being 6 PM. And each monastery is closed one day of the week, although all are open Saturday and Sunday. Entrance fees are 2 euros for each monastery. If you go during the summer, bring drinking water.
