Captain's House Hotel
Ranked #3 of 33 Patmos B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We debated whether to stay in Skala town or outside, but were so glad we chose to stay in Captains House. It's tucked away at one end of the harbour, with pretty views and easy walking distance to all the restaurants, bars and shops. Its a family run hotel, and the owner is really helpful and prepares a delicious breakfast buffet with home made croissants, cakes and really good coffee. You can eat your breakfast at tables on the small beach in front of the hotel. It is spotlessly clean and has been recently refurbished with new bathroom fittings, comfy beds and pillows. Undoubtedly the best rooms are those at the front with a small balcony and harbour view. If available it is worth spending Euro 20 a night extra for the suite 23 which has a balcony and is larger ( 4 beds), lighter with a bigger shower and Wifi connectivity. The shower cubicles in the other rooms are a bit cramped, and not all can access Wifi. The rooms at the back do not have a good view and are darker.
Next to the hotel is the old donkey path up to the Chora which is worth the climb for the views (about 1 hour walk).

Room Tip: Undoubtedly the best rooms are those at the front with a small balcony and harbour view. If availabl...

We went to Patmos to spend only 2 or 3 days , but finally we stayed one week to a very quite and relax family hotel, with nice sea view , just in the center . It get a small terass on the sea , nice and clean room with everything working - even if the bathroom is a little small - Wifi connexion, in the quieter place of skala. It has also a swimingpool on the back, excellent breakfeast and even a funny little dog, no bigger that one cat.
The ladie of the Hotel was also smiling and frendly.
And you ate just 3 steps from the old center of skala ,with many stores and bars.
You are also just close to a good tratoria " The mermaids " with a nice service and smiling girl.
We recommend this place.

Special note :
If you go there, after visiting the monastery, don't miss the Hora , a really beautifull and magic old village - like Mykonos but 50 years ago ! - and almost no tourists !

Room Tip: To sleep very well, take a room with balcony on the back. On the front , rooms with sea view can be...

Captain's House is a lovely place to stay! The hotel has everything you need for a nice stay at Patmos: nice and clean rooms, we had one with a balcony with sea view, good breakfast with sea view as well, swimming pool, friendly manager and car rent. Close to the dock and the small little town of Skala (everything in Skala is walking distance). Definitely recommended!

The Captain's House in Patmos is an authentic captain's house right on the water. It is a very quick and easy walk from the ferry slip and it is on the opposite side of the densely crowded destination hotels,It is a short easy stroll from one end of the harbor to the other end. The Captin's House is on the quieter side of the harbor, more where the Patmos locals live. The Captain's House is authentic, spotlessly clean and well maintained. Get a room with a balcony facing the water and enjoy watching people in their day to day activiries. The Captain's House is a wonderful, comfortable place to stay. I recommend it highly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balconey facing the water.
