Arhitektoniki Studios
Ranked #10 of 14 Hotels in Astipalea
Reviewed August 14, 2011

We spent 6 days at Arhitektoniki Studios in July 2011 and this was really a great stay. The studio (Studio 6) we stayed in was nice. You really feel as if it is a place you could stay for months because it is really built as if it were a real studio and not a holiday studio. The view from the balcony is also wonderfull (the Aegan sea, little islands, the Hora, etc).
The swimming pool is also great. Officially you can swim until 8pm (which is already later than most places we went to) but we swam at midnight several times and it was really magic to have this swimming pool with the magnificent view on the Hora.
Also, the owner Evangelia is a real plus to the stay. She is always there to give you very good advice about where to eat, where to go, etc.; to help you calling somewhere for a car or whatever but at the same time she is not intrusive at all, which might sometimes be the case when owners want to advice or help you. She came to pick up us at the port and wanted to drive us back the day of departure, which was very helpful.

The breakfast was also very good with local cheese and honey, and homemade jam. I asked for hot chocolate every day and it is probably one of the best hot chocolate I had in a hotel so far.
As we are still young, it was a bit expensive stay, of course, but really it was more than worth it. If you want to treat yourself a bit during holidays, I would strongly recommend it.

We spent 5 days at Livadi Astypalaia staying at Arhitekoniki (means Architect in English) and enjoyed every minute of our stay.
The hotel is situated high on a hill looking down onto the small town of Livadi with a beautiful view over looking the the bay and the Chora on the opposite side of the bay
The studio we had was quite large and comfortable with a balcony and over looked the pool , town and bay.
The studios are about a 10 minute walk to Livadi where there are 3 or 4 restaurants on the beachfront a small supermarket and a couple of bars. The walk is on an unmade road and is a bit up hill on the way back to the studios but good excercise after a meal.
There is a local bus going from Livadi to the charming Chora with its windmills and castle at the top of the Chora..
There a quite a few steps from the road up to the studios, again good excercise , but stop on the way up to rest and take in the sunset over the bay.
The new ferry port is about a 20 minute drive to Livadi and as there are only 2 taxis on the Island and if needed then book a taxi the day before. The studio manager will arrange this for you ( you may need some sign language) or speak to Nicholas the owner who will be able to help.
In all we loved Astypalaia and were very happy with our accomodation.

Not least because we loved the island of Astypalaia, our stay in Arhitektoniki Studios was flawless. We were (unexpectedly) picked up at the airport by Kyria Evangelia (the hotel manager) and were upgraded because of a recent cancellation. Our studio was on the highest aspect of the property, with superb views over the sea and across to the old town that had a medieval castle on its hill-top. The studio was spotless, spacious and very quiet. Had a comfortable bed on a mezzanine level, self-contained kitchen, shower with excellent water-pressure, balcony with the divine views already mentioned, and a lovely shared swimming pool. Only draw-back is that the property is located on outskirts of Livadi town, but this encouraged much physical activity walking to and from the towns and beaches (prob 2 km and hilly - easy if you enjoy walking; otherwise hire a car/moped). Wonderful place.
