We spent several days in the Blue Suite of the hotel, which is quite new (opened late last summer), dressed in luxury and offers the most beautiful sea views. The suite has two floors with a huge bed downstairs, full bath with a gorgeous jacuzzi. The upstairs has a roomy kitchen with stainless steel sink, stovetop, and good counter space. There is a brand new kettle, Philips drip coffee maker, toasted cheese sandwich maker (panini press) and blender for Greek frappes or cocktails. The fridge is of the half-sized variety but quiet and spacious enough. The kitchen has a complete set of nice china and cooking utensils. The upstairs bath has a roomy shower, toilet and sink area with plenty of room for cosmetics, toiletries, etc. The towels, bathrobes and bath products are top grade. There is satellite TV, CD music stereo and air conditioning. And there is room for a third person to sleep upstairs. The decor in all the rooms (the owner let me have a look) is stunning and based on traditional Astypalian homes. Design buffs will love it. But the best part of staying here was the incredible hospitality of Katerina and Michelis, the owners. Very genuine people who are determined to make their guests happy, happy, happy. They succeeded with us. Our suite cost 100 euros per night at the end of May/beginning of June and we felt it was worth every cent. They even arranged a rental car to be brought to us at the hotel and gave us tips on good restaurants in the town which is a five minute walk away. There is a good supermarket there and a greengrocer next to that which has some fabulous fresh produce. We spent a lot of time on our balcony, eating meals, sipping wine and taking in the view. The owners have created something truly unique for the Greek islands. While some of the rooms sleep more than two, this hotel is ideal for honeymoons/romantic getaways.
