“Best balcony view on Skiathos”
Reviewed June 12, 2007

We went to Skiathos for the first time having booked a cheap hotel on a website. That hotel turned out to be horrible. A dark, damp, dirty room with a minimal balcony facing a construction site. But we figured it was OK considering the low price tag of 40€ / night.
While walking the city streets we happened upon Orsa and sort of as a joke went inside wo see how much more expensive a hotel like that would have been. Turned out it cost 60. So for 20€ we would go from a dirty cave to a wonderful hotel room right by the ocean with an amazing corner balcony facing two directions. The owner of the first hotel forced us to pay 5 nights even though we only stayed 2. But even so, the tranfer was worth every penny.
Orsa is by no means a 5-star hotel. There's no internet, spa or pool. But if you're looking for a beautiful, clean, friendly hotel right by the old port and with what might just be the best balcony view on Skiathos, look no further.

  • Liked — Loaction and view.
  • Disliked — Nothing really. Breakfast wasn't great but it's optional anyway.
