Reviewed December 3, 2012

We booked for 2013 even before we left. This is is the most perfect spot and never disappoints. The whole family are so welcoming and this year Takis running the bar made us even more welcome. Lovely apartemnts, pool with comfy sun loungers, welcoming bar, beach 5 minutes, bus stop 3 minutes, lots of tavernas within 10 minutes and yet quiet and peaceful too.

Room Tip: Upper floor apartments get more sun but ground floor are accessible with level walks to pool, bar an...

The place is 'very clean and equipped with all the confort and' perfectly situated between the city center and main beaches. In addition, there is a very pretty beach 100 meters. Sophia and her sister and her parents are nice people and very helpful. To go back!

More than decent for a two stars hotel. Good location, across the street from the beach and not far from the center of Skiathos (5-6 km). Bus station right in front and pretty easy access by car (bike, atv) to all the best beaches (10-15 minutes). Friendly and helpful staff. Parking. Good little pool. Great large garden (especially for families with kids).
Breakfast could easily be of better quality. As some of the room/bathroom details.

Across the street there is a restaurant serving very good food: Kochyli restaurant.

Skiathos is a pretty and welcoming island, excellent for a small holiday. It's even better if you manage to split... a few days here and a few more days in the nearby Pelion peninsula. You will definitely enjoy both.

We have been going to The Ostria for many years, as have a lot of their other guests which says a lot about a place. The whole place is always spotless, the rooms are cleaned every day & the towels & bed linen changed about 3 times a week. The best thing about the Ostria are the owners & the staff, they really can't do enough for you & genuinely care whether or not you enjoy your holiday.
There is a nice pool which again is kept spotless. You get a buffet breakfast with cereal, yoghurt, fruit which is sometimes from the garden, ham, cheese, boiled eggs, bread, honey, jam, toast & endless tea & coffee & juice. They do snacks in the daytime & also on an evening. There are quite a few tavernas close by, our favourite is Jimmy's , you turn left out of the drive & it's just past the supermarket, they do the best lamb kleftiko we have ever tasted but they only do it as a special so it is worth asking when they are going to have it on special. Metastrato , you come out of the end of the drive & turn right & it is the first taverna on the right is nice & also Orsa which is the next one on the right.The supermarket which is near Jimmy's will have most things that you might need & the staff in there are also very friendly & helpful.
So if you want a relaxing friendly holiday this is the place to go

Our 2 week holiday in June was our 11th visit to the beautiful island of Skiathos but our first time at the Ostria. How we wish we had discovered this little gem many years ago!
The apartments are beautifully maintained - bright and airy, cleaned daily with towel and linen changes 3 times a week. Surrounded by large and peaceful gardens & fruit trees (which sometimes provide part of the breakfast choices) Ostria is a real haven. Breakfast is provided in the bar / restaurant area with a choice of cereals, fruit & Greek yogurt, cold meat & cheese, toast, bread or croissants & cake - something for everyone! The pool was incredibly warm while we were there and with a gentle slope towards the deep end, it is more "friendly" for non-swimmers than some we have experienced.

But what makes the Ostria really outstanding is the people - a family run hotel, nothing is too much trouble. George & Anna or Sophia are on site daily and all speak excellent English - if they are not about, Anna & Sophia's parents are always around and will contact one of their daughters by telephone if anything arises that sign language and our (very) limited Greek couldn't resolve. The staff are unfailingly cheerful, all with a ready smile and Dimitris in the bar was very patient with our questions about Greece - which I'm sure he must hear thousands of times throughout the season! Lunchtime snacks included salads - try the fabulous Ostria salad and club sandwiches with occasional special treats such as Souvlaki.

The location is superb - just couple of minutes walk to bus stop 16 giving easy access to everywhere from Skiathos Town to Koukounaries and beyond, with many bus stops being close to some of the marvellous beaches for which Skiathos is famed. There are many tavernas within a short walk of the Ostria offering good food - try Orsa (right opposite the bus stop) - with a sign saying snack bar, it is often overlooked for evening meals but they provide excellent home cooking and a typically Skiathan friendly welcome.

We shall definitely be returning to Hotel Ostria - it really is something special.

Stayed in the Ostria for a week in August. It's very conveniently located within easy walking distance of tavernas and the beach but is also lovely and peaceful, set in well-tended grounds far enough back from the road. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and very comfortable (including the bed!).
I'm sure you don't need a car but we were glad we had one for convenience and especially for access to the stunningly beautiful and quiet beaches to the north.
We liked the food at the Avli best, especially the souvlaki. The taverna at Slithri is pretty but horrendously expensive (70 euros a kilo for the fish!).
Definitely intend returning to Skiathos and the Ostria.

My family and I stayed at Ostria for about 10 nights during July-August 2011.
The area of Ag. Paraskevi is quite touristic (with a rather busy and dangerous road cutting through it). The garden in Ostria is very pleasant and nice for kids to play and adults to relax.
The apartments are quite OK (although the mattresses are too stiff).
Breakfast was rather poor quality by the Greek standards, both in terms of variety and quality. Surprisingly, the coffee was also poor (frappe, or Greek coffee). Unfortunately, no food was prepared for lunch on the 2 occasions we asked for it.
Overall, the pool bar has potential to be a meeting point, but it is not at all exploited.
Beware of your booking arrangements, since the manager is pretty strict and inflexible.
Some suggestions on places to eat: Skouna and Mpakaliko in Chora (very good quality, a bit expensive), Sklithri (nice fish) and Mesostrato in Ag. Paraskevi (excellent value for money). Great creative cocktails at Casablanca in Chora (although quite pricey).
