This is a bit awkward to me. That is the type of place you don't want to reveal to others cause you still want to be able to find a room anytime and make sure you will be finding the same spirit everytime you go. In other words, a place you don't want anything to change because it was a huge part of a fantastic holiday. However, I need to give credits to the owners Vasso & Alex for Kouitou cause I know they will not blow their own horn themselves.
To elaborate, this is not a place for everyone. It has no AC and it is not next to the sea (but it is 8 min walk away from it) so families and people who can't live without AC will find hard to get along. Also it is a real art hotel. By that I mean, it is not a glossy boutique hotel similar to those in Mykonos or London, but a place reflecting the eye and the talent of Alex and it works and compliments the hotel and its spirit - it's not there to make it look pretty for your eyes only. It is part of its entity.
As another reviewer said, this feels more like you are hosted by friends rather than a hotel or B&B. There is a focal point in from of the kitchen where everyone gets to know everyone and have fun and serious discussions with fiery Vasso, drink probably the best coffee I've ever had, have some breakfast (you HAVE to try the yogurt with fruits and nuts), or try the have-to-eat-to-believe dishes of Vasso's mom. What surprised me is that with so little personnel, nothing is a big deal for the owners. Vasso arranged us kite surf instructor, yoga, tarot, among others. I guess the trick is if we feel free to ask and get anything (within reason of course), we will chill, the whole place will be chilled, the owners will be chilled and therefore we will all operate as a big group of friends. It worked like a charm and all 8 of us admitted that this was probably the best place we have ever stayed.
With regards to practicalities, as I said there is no AC but the fan on the ceiling does the job and keeps the air fresh - I personally prefer it that way. Rooms are of very reasonable size and definitely bigger than many B&Bs on the Greek Islands or Paris and Asia and WiFi is totally free. It is located at the edge of Skala Eressos and it’s calm and secluded. The beach and restaurants are 8min walk from Kouitou. There is a bar at the roof and a small chill terrace to switch off and also where the yoga classes are every once in a while.
I have stayed in so many hotels so far but i fell head over hills for Kouitou. I hope Vasso puts me on her plan for next year.

Hotel Kouitou - I love it!
Owner Vaso and her team makes staying at Kouituou Hotel an extraordinary experience for visitors to Scala Eressos thanks to this most beautifull and soul-full art-hotel! This great place is far more than a hotel - it heightens your stay in the village. The energy of the staff is great, the rooms are beautifull thanx to Alex, the food, maaan is georgeous thanx to mamma Sofia, and the spirit of Kouitou is SO wonderfull thanx to Vaso!
I can strongly recomend this place to any visitor who wants to get the best out of a visit to Scala Eressos.

We stayed in Kouitou hotel for two nights with friends. It is a nice, clean, quiet hotel, about 5-10 min walking distance from the beach bars. Each room is differently decorated and the walls are painted by the owner himself in different theme (eg. bubble room, chinese room etc) which makes the hotel really special. When we visited the hotel (2010), there was no A/C in the rooms we stayed, just fans. The owners were very kind and friendly.

Kouitou is a small and beautiful hotel with 15 rooms, each of them different decorated by the artist and co-owner Alex. He has painted the whole hotel with warm delicate colours that makes you believe you are in a fairytale, a mix between Mexico and Greece. The coffees that Vaso, co-owner, Alex’s girlfriend,and a professional barista, makes - are for sure the best in Skala Eressos. (The beans are imported from the Zapatistas in Chiapas.) Vasos mother, Sofia, makes tasty and homemade food if you want to eat at the hotel. The rooms are clean, the breakfast simlple - and very fresh, the service is warm and friendly. The arty atmosphere is extraordinary nice. I’ll come back!
