“the best!”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

It's a charming family hotel, room was immaculate, owner was very friendly and helpful, their cute little dog was a plus for my daughter. Breakfast is so good and different everyday, I'd stay there just for the food. we were so glad we chose this hotel, it's not far from harbor and strolling around was such a delight, many restaurants nearby, Hydra stop was definitely the highlight of our trip in Greece.

We were really taken care of. They arranged Taxa from the airport, ferry ... any practical problem. They are so kind, the rooms were clean - and the food was prepared with care and love. I can absolutely recommend this place.

Delightful with unexpected extra touches and personal attention to our needs. How often do you take pictures of your breakfast? We did every morning--and just looked at them again, 5 months later! The owners/managers go above and beyond to help with luggage, connections, and just ensuring that our entire experience exceeded our expectations. If we're ever in Greece again, this is a must-stay.

Jenny and Theo were invaluable in creating a fabulous experience for my daughter and I for our three days in Hydra. They served amazing breakfasts everyday (the best of our three weeks in Greece!), had great suggestions for where to hike, eat, swim, and were extremely accommodating in helping us plan the next piece of our trip. The rooms were spotless, and had a beautiful view of the harbor and town below. We didn't realize we had booked our time during a holiday weekend, when everything was at capacity. They were able to fit us in an extra night, and even helped arrange a car rental for us back on the mainland.

What struck me the most about these two was the work effort they maintained. There was a flow and gracious hospitality to their efforts, even when clearly there was a rush of business and a full hotel to service. Elegant, excellent, gourmet, a perfect location to stay on the island.

Room Tip: Our room was on the top floor and had a harbor view. Waking up to the farm animal noises was part of...

Twenty years ago, we visited Hydra on our honeymoon. We went back to Hydra, our favorite place on earth, for our 20th anniversary in October 2013. The Mistral Hotel made this trip even more wonderful than we could have ever imagined. The setting is a beautiful old building that has been remodeled but kept old charm. The garden courtyard of tables is available for dining or visiting at any time. The lobby is stately, classy and comfy. The decor of the entire hotel is in keeping with Greek art and is beautifully presented everywhere one looks. The hotel is meticulously clean. Our hotel room on the 2nd floor was so very nice. Besides a bathroom with tub and shower, there was a small refrigerator, wardrobe cupboard, dressing table, and louvered doors that opened to a tiny deck with a marvelous view of the garden next door, the roof tops of the village, and a corner of the Aegean Sea and the mountains. Owners Jenny & Theo and all of the Mistral Staff were always friendly and cordial.

The daily breakfasts offered to guests between 8:00 and 10:30 every morning are something to speak about. We were blown away! Theo prepares the meals. It begins with a warm vegetable puree in a little glass. Following that, guests are treated to an amazing parade of varied courses--each a little different each day--such as: fruite juice, egg in an egg cup, tomatoes with olive oil and feta, kalamata olives, dolomathes, a square of cheese pie or spanakopita, bread, fresh fruit such as melon and grapes, a fruity gelatin mold, ham/cheese on toast, followed by a delicious pastry of some kind. Of course tea and coffee are poured non-stop. The music that played during these morning breakfasts was beautiful. The ambiance of this experience made us feel that there could be nothing better in the universe at that moment!

We stayed for four nights. We can't wait to return. What a wonderful experience.

Hotel Mistral is a wonderful guest house. The rooms are beautifully furnished, and the hotel is clean and neat as a pin ! The location is removed from the harbor noise and activity, but a short walk to the harbor. The breakfast every day is outstanding -- truly gourmet, and different every day. The owners and staff are warm and friendly. Hydra is an amazing island to visit ... no cars, no scooters and everything is walk-able. I loved having the donkeys carry my luggage up to the hotel....they are down at the harbor when the ferries arrive.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.

We just returned from our first trip to Greece and stayed at Hotel Mistral in September 2013. If you have the good fortune to be taking holiday on beautiful Hydra, you will be even more fortunate to stay at Hotel Mistral. Simply stated, it is excellent, exceptional, and the perfect compliment to lovely Hydra. This small hotel is a jewel. Beautiful, charming, clean, serene, and ideally located. Hotel Mistral is very comfortable, has air conditioned rooms, and modern amenities. As soon as you walk up to the gate that leads into the sweet garden courtyard and hotel entrance you'll be overwhelmed by it's beauty, the feeling there. And you'll be pleased and relieved that you made the brilliant decision to choose Mistral. Owners and operators Jenny and Theo are the best! The most gracious of hosts. Fun and a joy to be with, they are 100% there for you with great service, helpful assistance, and recommendations that you'll appreciate. (Jenny speaks English perfectly.) And oh, the breakfasts! Delicious! We dream of having breakfast there again or just relaxing in the quiet of Mistral's courtyard. Stay at least four nights. There's so much to see and enjoy on Hydra. Or, do nothing and simply absorb this relaxing hotel and island. Hydra is also the perfect place to launch side trips to the southern Peloponnese. Just take a quick ride on ferry or small boat ride to nearby Ermioni and rent a car. (Thanks to Jenny's advice.) Take the scenic drive to beautiful Nafplio, Kalamata, and the many nearby archeological sites. It's easy, it's perfect! And guess what? Return the car and take the ferry back to Hydra and stay a couple of more days. Checking-out of Mistral seems like a ridiculous thing to do. We can't wait to return! Yassou and efharisto Jenny and Theo! Love and thanks from Nick H. (Nikos) & Nancy L., Greenbrae, California
