I can believe there are nicer places to stay in Geece, but this would take a lot of beating. It was especially refreshing after 3 days in an adequate but mediocre hotel in Athens, which cost more.
I would describe Pitho Rooms as more a very good quality B and B than a hotel, which is fine by me. You get all the facilities of a hotel ( free WiFi, en suite bathroom, etc) but the attention you receive is much more personal and you quickly feel almost part of the family!
The room I had was nicely furnished, very clean, with an attractive bathroom. What really made it for me, though, was the small balcony over looking a tiny terraced garden at the back of the house, which is built into the hillside. At night the plants were lit with fairy lights, and by day, water trickled through the plants with a soothing,cooling sound.
On a more practical note, if you arrive by public transport from Athens, Pitho rooms are a short,level walk from the bus stop and very easy to find.
