“Very spacious and great hospitality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Located in the middle of Diakofto, it is halfway between the beach and the cog railway station (Odontotos). It is frequented by Greek families who stay for long-ish summer hols, hence the rooms are huge. We had a double appartment, which had a good size bedroom and a very large sitting area with well equiped open plan kitchen and a large balcony. The AC was very efficient. The bathroom was the usual Greek standard, i.e. adequate with a tiny shower cubible (at least it was better than a curtain!). The pool was on the small side. The family who own and run it are very friendly and welcoming. We got a great restaurant recomendation from them, too!

THINGS TO DO IN DIAKOFTO:
1. The cog railway from Diakofto to Kalavrita: this has to be one of the best short railway trips in the whole of Europe ( visit the "odontotos" website for info). This is Greece as you have never seen it.
2. Go to Trapeza village (5 minute car trip) for an evening meal and enjoy great views of the gulf of Corinth.

Located perfectly between beach and railway this is a modern but charming family run hotel with pool. There are several choices in this small town but I feel this one was the best of the bunch. Do ask the hotel to reserve rail tickets for you. Its worth the trip up! Just in case you don't realise it there are three restaurants on the beach as well as the ones in the town.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

very generously proportioned apartments in 3, 2storey,landscaped buildings + pool. air-con,TV, balcony towards the mountains or gardens if downstairs. open plan sitting room/kitchen with sofa beds for children/adults. spacious bedroom and shower room. E65 incl. huge and varied brekkie. For just the 2 of us it was huge.
2mins walk to the small boat harbour, 3 to the beach and 4 to the town centre and railway to the mountains. The mainline is in pieces (June 2012) so can't help with trains from Patra to Corinth. Must be another route??
Hospitable owner, had booked ahead via internet and were expected. Owner reserved train tickets to mountain village of Kalavrita which turned out to be very helpful.

Room Tip: views from upstairs only

The facility: Comfortable, modern, well maintained. Spacious well-equipped apartments with very nice rooms. Kitchen, balconies and all.

Location: Not far from the beach and the small local marina.

The team: Most welcoming and ready to assist with any request including laundry, iPhone charger, trustworthy restaurant recommendations and more.

We used this as a base for day-hikes in the nearby mountains and were very sorry when we had to leave.

My wife, my 2y boy and I, stayed at this hotel during August of 2010. It has apartments with own kitchen and balconies, nice furniture and on top of these it’s very clean. Apart from these it has also a nice small swimming pool that kids will love. The hotel is near the sea and the small harbour of Diakofto. Don’t miss to go to the Pounta beach which has very clean water.

This was a real find. This is a modern, very clean and comfortable place to stay. We had a large room with comfy bed and kitchen facilities, a large modern bathroom and a balcony (though they could have used chairs and tables out there). The staff (family-owned) were very pleasant.
