We were looking for something a little different, so we choose the Antica Dimora Suites using the information from the Trip Advisor reviews. Well, we were not disappointed, it was just as everyone had described. The hotel is located in the old town area, which is just a great place with plenty restaurants and shops to explore! The hotel is small with only nine rooms, small, friendly, with that added personal touch. The staff were just great, very friendly and very helpful, they did their upmost to make your stay as best as they could. Hats off to you Vaso & Stella, you made our stay that much more enjoyable, thank you...
The hotel and rooms were presented to a very high standard of decor, an old historic building converted to a high standard with original stone wall features and marble floors. There is a small ‘court yard’ to the rear of the building, nice and peaceful with a very small pool, great for a dip but that would be it (remember it’s in the middle of an old town!). The breakfast was superb, a buffet style with plenty to choose from, served at what time ‘you’ want to have your breakfast!
The hotel building is of three floors, with a small lift to the first two floors. We stayed on the third floor which meant an extra flight of stairs to climb, not a problem to us, but if stairs are not your thing then avoid rooms 107 & 108 (Therpsichore & Thalia). However our room (107) had a nice big balcony to the back of the building nice and peaceful. (There are also more stairs going down to court yard/pool area.)
As the hotel is in the old town there is no access for anything bigger than a moped, so you will have to walk from your taxi, bus or hire car, so make sure you have a map...
