“Wonderful potential but a disappointing results!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2011

I chose Goulas based on reviews at tripadvisor. The locale was easy because it was at the very beginning of the town. As expected, it was a very traditional building and rooms. Our room was simple and had a marvelous stone balcony with chairs to sit and soak up the water & scenery. But the next day we realized there was a problem with the bedding/bed! We were covered with bites... and it was not mosquitos!!! No one was arround to talk to so we left, releived to be out! I immediately contacted Goulas by email when we arrived at our next destination, and they gave a cursory "sorry we will correct it " but it felt empty. I would NOT recommend this as a place to stay. There are many other places..probably a bit more expensive, but do not risk saving $$$ at this wonderful town in exchange for days of pain!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2010

Lovely simple room with AMAZING water views and relatively easy to get to - take the first street down as soon as you get through the castle gate. The room was very simple, and no breakfast included but there was a kettle and some fruit and cakes left out and also a refrigerator (which did not work). The mattress was incredibly hard, so don't expect a good nights sleep! Monemvasia is an extraordinary place and you absolutely need to stay in the castle to get the full effect of this little Byzantine town. The upper city took 4-5 hours to explore properly and the views are excellent if a bit vertiginous. If I go again I will try to get something a little larger, but this simple clean and picturesque hotel is a good choice.

Goulas offers you the chance to live inside a castle and feel like a real king and queen. My best holiday ever.

We enjoyed our stay in Goulas hotel! We rented the suite-apartment No 4 which was very beatiful decorated and very clean. It has a fantastic view of the sea from the terrace, We still used the kitchen facilities, and we thoroughly enjoyed eating our meals on the terrace looking at the full moon !"

We stayed in room 3 with huge a terrace. Although the room was small, the terrace made the whole stay unbelievable. We loved the location. it is just down from the main street which means that you do not have to climb with your suitcases. I think they have bigger rooms there with terraces as well and i would highly recommend that. it is good to tell them the time of arrival as the door are close sometimes! we loved our stay there

this is a small hotel inside the castle of Monemvasia witch makes the location good.
Some of the rooms have a nice view on the sea, some others no.
Rooms are small with low ceiling. No breakfast , but you can make your own coffee and tea, refrigerator is provided.
The value for money is good if you can hear your neighbors even breathing!
