“Excellent room, charming owner & lovely breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

We arrived late in the season and late in the afternoon without a booking and Mr Iakovos was on his own. Despite this we got a very warm welcome and a lovely spacious tastefully furnished apartment even though we only stayed one night. Breakfast was outstanding - especially considering we were the only guests - great coffee, omelette and homemade jams. Wish we could have stayed longer!

The hotel is in a quiet area a short drive away from Monemvasia. The owners are very hospitable and welcoming and the hotel rooms are spacious with plenty of parking available. Our children really enjoyed the swimming pool. The grounds and the rooms are spotlessly clean and the buffet breakfast was varied and tasty. The home-made sweets were amazing. A great place to relax and unwind.

Stayed there 2 nights in a very big room.
The host was very kind, always smiling.
A little bit far from the center but there is no problem with a car (about 7 km).
We could enjoy the calm, the wonderful view on the castle, the beach (5 minutes by foot).

We got here for the weekend and were very glad to meet the owners Mr. Iakovos n Mrs. Katerina. The rooms just top!! the facilities excellent, the pool great for our boys - kids part- and long enough for us. The fresh air and silence contributed to the most enjoyable sleep for all the family in those very comfortable beds! The breakfast with home made cakes and Marmelade!! wish we could eat more. We hope to come back soon again.

The hotel is located in Xifias a place near to the castle of Monemvasia.
Actually this has been proved as an advantage, as the temperature is high in Monemvasia town, especially during summer, whereas in Xifoupolis is cooler during the day.
Moreover the beach which is 5 min (maximum) walk from the hotel is the best in the area.
If you like scuba diving then the above beach is a real MUST since the seabed is wonderful and the visibility is extraordinary.
Excellent accommodation with spacious rooms. The breakfast is amazing (you have to taste the homemade Pizza) all homemade and the ingredients all are coming from the garden of the owners.
Rooms are very clean and the view from the rooms is stunning (you can see the Castle of Monemvasia and the sea).
The personnel are very kind and helpful.
Finally you MUST try the restaurant of the hotel. Everything is home-made and the prices are out of this world (20 euro for a full dinner for a couple).

I am suggesting it without any though. You should definitely visit it.

Brilliant holiday accommodation in the magnificent historical area of Monemvasia in Peloponnesus. Rooms clean and very spacious, views from the balcony were stunning, staff very helpful and polite. The evening meals by the beautiful swimming pool were delicious. The visit to the castle of Monemvasia ( 5 km away) a unique experience. Recommended to people who plan to visit this part of Greece.
