“Small rooms, no private/free parking whatsoever”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

The two greatest advantages of the hotel is its strategic location -you can walk anywhere in town- and the politeness of its staff -except from the night shift guy. Other than that it's all average. The rooms are quite small and inconvenient. You cant open the clause unless you are ON the bed, or unless you push the bed away. The toilet is RIGHT next to the bed -reminded me of London hotels. It's pretty noisy, no sound-proof and the doors to the balconies are SO tricky to open -as they are probably 40-50 years old.

The super lie is that there is free parking... implying that the hotel has a free parking garage. There is NO parking garage. You can park in the surrounding streets, which are pretty crowded however, especially during the weekends, holidays, Mardi Gras etc. So, it goes without saying that the parking is free... but it's NOT guaranteed. I just wish that some hotel owners would stop lying about stuff like that. So OK, you are going to mislead people once... but never again. Breakfast OK.

We stayed just one night at the Rex Hotel but would have been happy to stay longer. The staff were very helpful with advice on where to eat; the room was adequate size and very clean; bathroom was a good size and well laid out; and the tariff was quite reasonable (although we did enjoy the winter discount). Overall, we're happy to recommend this hotel, although the air conditioning was set too hot and we had to turn it off.

Room Tip: Greek hotel rooms tend to be have the air conditioning set to hot! In the Rex Hotel, the air conditi...

The hotel is in a great location just outside the old town within walking distance of the harbour, restaurants, town centre and the fortress. There was also a very decent supermarket a couple of blocks away. We had a good but quite small room with a balcony. The WiFi was excellent but we couldn't get the a/c to do anything but blow hot air - lucky it was autumn so we just did without. The breakfast was pretty good with bacon and omelette offered as the hot options but the coffee tasted like instant coffee (even though the sign said filter coffee) and the "fresh" fruit on offer was past its best.

Stayed here for one night as part of a Cosmos tour of Greece. The hotel is situated in an excellent location for exploring Nafplio and is within walking distance of the harbour and the main sites. The hotel itself is very basic - Our room was clean however the beds were uncomfortable, our shower head was broken and our air con was not working properly throughout our stay. The room also faced an inner courtyard which left it very dark and dingy. It was an okay stay for one night, but I wouldn't have wanted to stay here any longer.

Stayed here as part of a Cosmos tour so it was basically in and out but impressions were rather old rooms with ineffective air conditioning but a good free WiFi. It's in the scruffy end of town but easy walking distance to the very attractive town centre and waterfront.

Spacious room with shutters overlooking internal courtyard. Our beds were comfortable despite other reviews. Big supermarket adjacent that was open until 9pm. Short walk along the street direct to the port area or turn off to enter the old town. The hill-top fortress is also a short walk away, plus 999 steps if you are keen to get all the way to the top. (After 300, you have a great view for pictures though!). Breakfast OK.
