Nice pension in the old town of Nafplio, in quiet area, with comfortable bed and bathroom.Breakfast is not something extraordinary but it is nice and big enough to keep you for hours. Very good location near to everything and there is enough of open, free, public space for parking. Very friendly staff/owners, willing to provide with necessary information. I would enjoy it more if the bedroom was a little more spacious and if it was not so hot inside (but still better than being cold!). Very clean as well and traditional enough! I would stay again, it is very nice and the price is really worth it!

Room Tip: Ask which color has your room to see it in the website before booking it...

This really has to be one of the most beautiful 'hotels' i have ever stayed in!!! One of the few hotels that looks exactly as it's advertised on the website. The rooms were so so lovely that i was very reluctant to leave it....but in a town as beautiful as nafplio, the town tends to win out! For the price i paid i thought it was soo very worth it...the decor is simply beautiful and very very cosy. And the bathroom was fantastic....looked like something you would see in a 5 star hotel. Very well stocked as well with amenities. Breakfast was also better than most of the hotels in Athens. Kudos especially to the staff who were very attentive, courteous and friendly. Really made me fee soo at home which was exactly what i was looking for. I honestly felt so sad when it was time to leave.

I will definitely come back to Nafplio if only to stay at Pension Dafni. Seriously don't waste your time with any other hotel or pension.....this place is simply amazing!!!!!!!

Visited, Nov.2012. Nice, clean and comfortable room - pretty establishment (must be nice during summer too). Hot water, fridge, A/C, closet, small safe, hair-dryer all there ! Professional but not impersonal handling by the staff.
Our room although did not have much of a view it was not bad either - just a glimpse of the old city - it didn't matter though since we spent most of our time wandering Nafplio city.
Properly located so that one does not have to walk too much. Within walking distance from everything (sites, good food, coffee, drink...). I was afraid Parking would be an issue but once you find a spot (eventually) you do not need the car until you have to pack & leave.
Given the chance, I would definitely stay at Dafni Pension again.

This place was perfect for our needs. A single mum travelling with 2 small children. Our room was more of an apartment with a kitchenette and private balcony with an orange tree. The breakfast was fabulous and the staff were extremely helpful.

pros: very clean; good location; rather good breakfast; nice and friendly staff; comfortable bed;
Cons: if we really had to think about it the shower is rather small and the pillows weren’t to our liking. But that’s all rather petty. It’s a wonderful place to stay.

We stayed at the hotel during our trip to Greece last year, and this one was absolutely great! The rooms were very nice, spacious and clean, and the staff were really helpful. The city of Nafplio is very beautiful with many interesting sights, and this hotel is a very good option!

It was one of the most beautiful pensions / hotels I have stayed in. The room was new, very clean and tidy and perfectly decorated. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location to the city and the buses / taxis. I absolutely recommend this pension to all travellers

Room Tip: Even the smallest one is suitable for a couple.
