We stayed here for 2 nights and fell in love with Hotel Familia and Ithaka. We loved the building and the history, the original features infused with modern designer furniture, the modern bathroom, the lovely bed, tasty breakfast and lastly the family who run the B&B. It is a special place which we hope to return to soon and would... More

A converted olive press, the building has been rennovated into a small number of beautiful guest rooms. The hotel is conveniently located in the centre of Vathy, Ithaki's main town and it offers free bikes for rides on the waterfront. Breakfast was one of the best we've had in Greece, with fresh eggs cooked in a different way every day,... More

There are words in all languages that are difficult to be translated. One of the them is the Greek word "Meraki": it's definition includes the elements of caring, attention to detail, service, wholeheartedness, consistency, fun. And all these elements are present in their highest form at the Familia hotel in Ithaca. Staying in this hotel is a unique experience. Its... More

A very nice hotel with excellent design in Ithaka very reasonable price and good breakfast. Owner and staff are very hospitable and friendly and they are worth the hotel name 'Familia' When i'll have the chance I'll visit it again.

One week in here and I didnt want to leave. This hotel has been so welcoming and warm towards myself and my family. The staff is very friendly; excellent breakfast; extremely clean rooms; perfect location (right in the center). When I decide to come again next year I will be sure to book this months ahead.

It is a short walk from the seafront in Vathy which has a number a excellent restaurants serving fresh fish. Vathy makes a good base to explore the... More

Spent a night at Hotel Familia as a treat to ourselves whilst touring Ithaka and it proved to be one of the best 'treats' we've ever had! The old olive press building has been converted so sympathetically and the result is beautiful to behold and lovely to stay in. Christina and Makis were both extremely welcoming and their recommendation of... More

I stayed at Hotel Familia for a week in June and had a wonderful time. The location is very central - just a few minutes walk to the main square with everything you need close to hand, restaurants, bars and shops all within a stones throw. The hotel itself is lovely, a nice boutique B&B with very comfy beds and... More

During my 3 week vacation in Greece, I had the occasion to spend a week in Ithaki, the greater part of which saw me accommodated in the Hotel Familia, Vathy’s historic Olive Press, most extraordinarily converted into a boutique hotel. What a beautiful experience! Not only has the conversion of this 19th Century building been done with care and consideration,... More
