Hotel Kastro

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 28, 2012

We stayed at the Kastro for 2 nights in September. The hotel is located in the heart of the old castle and it might be a little bit tricky to find it but you can always ask around (or use your GPS). The rooms are fairly large for Europe, shower is modern and new and overall the room was clean and nicely decorated. They also had free wi-fi that worked perfectly. The only downside: our reservation said that they have private parking but that's far from being true. The parking is just on the public streets around the hotel and it's not a problem to find a space but you should the ask hotel to print you a permission note or you might get a ticket for driving or parking inside the old castle.

Some years ago, visiting Ioannina, while exploring the castle area and the museums therein, we came across a beautifully renovated traditional house, turned into a hotel. Since we were leaving the area that very day, staying at this charming hotel nested as a desire in our minds.
Fortunately, as we were touring around Greece this summer, we managed to modify our itinerary and stay for just one night in Ioannina. Staying at "Hotel Kastro", made a dream come true, and was really worth it.
The rooms are painted and decorated in pale charming colours,creating a romantic feeling. Bathrooms are modern and cozy (in our bathroom though, there was a mistake in the positioning of the heating element, which resulted in the shower glassdoor to remain open - easily fixable).
Breakfast was of a very good quality, with home made products and local ingredients.
The location is excellent, being inside the city walls and giving the feeling of travelling back in time. It is also very close to all intresting places worth visiting without having to move your car.
This hotel is realy an excellent choice for really appreciating Ioannina.

We stayed in this hotel in June 2012 and of all the hotels we have stayed in whilst travelling through Greece we found nothing amiss in the Kastro. Clean, tidy and attractive room, reasonably spacious. Super, fully functioning shower room. Generous breakfast, and attentive and friendly service. Good price for a hotel in an excellent location, with a small sitting out area and free wi-fi to boot. We cannot recommend this highly enough.

Room Tip: All rooms are good but upstairs are a little bigger and probably quieter. They cost a bit more, but...

The Kastro is a small 19th century pension inside the castle walls at Ioannina, in northern Greece. Recently rennovated with an eye for maintaining the antique charm of the place, each room is equipped with comfortable beds, small refridgerators, newly remodeled bathroom facilites and adequate storage and closet space. The breakfast is fresh and simple, with fresh juices, toast and tea or coffee prepared to order. We have been here before - the first time in 2010 - and found the place such an improvement over anything else in town that we try to stay here whenever we come to Ioannina. George Zannis is the proprietor and his son Kostas and other staff members contribute to making a guest of their hotel feel at ease. The location is wonderful; close to everything at the heart of Ioannina, including the fantastic archaeological museum, the launches to the small island in the lake, and, of course, the inner castle, literally only steps away from the hotel.

After along flight from Sydney to Ioannina we arrived at the Hotel Kastro and our stresses fell away as received a very warm welcome from the staff at the Hotel Kastro. This charming hotel is in the quiet walled part of the city, very near the town centre and gorgeous lakeside. As a family of four (2 adults and 2 teenage boys) this hotel suited us down to the ground. The breakfast was lovely and the Greek yoghurt with local honey was superb. We highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed for 1 night at the Hotel Kastro and found the hotel to be excellent. The hotel is located inside the old kastro of Ioannina in a quiet area, but just a short walk from a bustling area full of cafes, restaurants and shops, as well as the lake of course.
The hotel provides that pleasant experience of staying in an old mansion that was refurbished. The room was clean, well furnished and had all the necessary modern amenities.
To top it off, the staff were very friendly and helpful, even loaning us umbrellas for our walk around town due to a chance of rain.
We highly recommend this place as it answered all of our needs during our brief stay in Ioannina.

Charming hotel in the oldest, and for me, the most atmospheric part of the city with all amenities updated. Helpful staff and good breakfast. You can easily walk to the Byzantine, Municipal and Archaeological Museum and to the harbor for the boat to Nissi Island.
