Pyrgos Hotel is touch of a bygone era. The Hotel was built as a mansion in 1916 and surrounding this hotel are other mansions of the same era. However, not all of them have been restored to its original grandeur. Your eyes are drawn to building because of its unique style i.e. the tower, in comparison to other mansions in the same vicinity.
You are not disappointed from the sweeping curve stairs leading up to the main entrance of the hotel and entering into the foyer. Once in the foyer your eyes are transfixed by the grandeur of the room and the high ceilings with ornate caricatures of the cornices. The furniture compliments the ground floor rooms perfectly.
The charm continues throughout all the rooms at the hotel. Each room is an experience in itself in style. The rooms are clean and tidy and the service by the staff was excellent. The staff go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your experience staying at this unique hotel. And the buffer style breakfast was very good!
However, there is no lift in the hotel, which is understandable given that the building is nearly 100 years old. So carrying a large bag upstairs is a bit of an effort, but well worth it.
The hotel is 10-15 minute walk from the centre of town and port.
It is definitely worth staying at this old world hotel.
