Reviewed July 21, 2014

We spent three nights here, using Nafplion as a base for the historic sites. We have been trying to rank the places we stayed at in Greece, without much success, but this is right up there. The location in the very centre is perfect, and the people could not be more welcoming, helpful, or concerned for their guests' comfort. We had one of the rooftop rooms, with our own little terrace, and views. Breakfast was enough to feed an army, and the many little extras we were offered singled this place out - starting with the detailed Nafplion briefing - we still have the marked-up map. One of the best places we have ever stayed in, across the world.

From the lovely hosts who treat you like family from the moment you step in to the well done rooms to the over the top breakfast - this place is simply unbeatable. I was a little sick with some indigestion when we arrived and they immediately provided me with herbal teas to soothe and got me a tea kettle in the room so I could brew my tea as and when I wanted. They gave us tips on places to see and eat based on our interests. The breakfast in the morning was just over the top - with all kinds of fresh baked goodies from a local bakery to eggs made to order, coffee/tea/juice/yogurt etc. There was no way we could do justice to the wonderful spread and to top it off our wonderful hostess packed up the rest of the breakfast pies etc as a picnic for us.
Just fantastic - nothing like staying with a local family and feeling like you are in a five star hotel. If only we could find places like this everywhere we visited!

Aikas personally welcomed us to the hotel when we arrived. He sat down with us and gave us a wonderful guide to the city, dinner and walk recommendations which were fantastic. We only had a day in Nafplio but he definitely helped us maximize our time.
Both Aikas and his mother were so welcoming it felt like you were staying with a family, not a hotel. In the morning his mom prepared a huge and delicious breakfast, and because we had to head out onto the road, she packed us some cake to go.

Would definitely stay here again. Wonderful people, beautiful restored house. Very comfortable.

Our highest recommendation. A B&B of the highest caliber. Located several streets back from the harbor and main square of the tourist part of town, Aetoma was very quiet. The owner was very helpful. He sat down with us to give us an orientation to the area and the sights. We were given help with luggage and parking. The breakfast was large, included many selections and was delicious. The room was large, the beds very comfortable and the bathroom shower was very modern with a skytop. Internet, cable and temperature control worked well. If you go, ask if the room on the top floor, with the outside sitting area, is available. Not recommended for the disabled as there is no elevator.

The ratings don't lie! This delightful B&B in the heart of downtown Nafplio ranked in the top 1 or 2 of all accommodations during our 16-day trip to Greece. Set just one or two short blocks from the main town square, which has many restaurants, shops & nightlife, this prime property also offers a stunning view of the nearby Palamidi Fortress, which is beautifully lit at night. The proprietors - a mother and her adult son - are gracious and efficient. When we arrived, they spent at least 1/2 hour with us, offering information and directions, so we could make the most of our time there. This proved the perfect location for sightseeing in nearby Epidauros, Mycenae and Argos. The breakfast provided each day was a delicious combination of hot & cold selections and homemade pastries. A truly fantastic stay!

Room Tip: If you can take stairs, choose the top floor. The balconies are a delight and the view amazing.

Family run, warm and personal welcome. The family were helpful, and took an interest in our activities and seemed genuinely concerned that we should enjoy our stay. Room well appointed and clean, with good air conditioning which was very quiet. Breakfast generous and good.

We had a room at the front of the hotel, overlooking a small square, which was quiet, but rooms at the back overlooked a busier and noisier part of town. You might wish to choose the best to suit you.

All rooms were up at least one flight of stairs. My limited mobility made this a manageable challenge, but if stairs are a problem for you beware. The owners were helpful to me, escorting me on the stairs and carrying things to keep my hands free.

Overall, an excellent choice which I would recommend

From the moment we arrived to the minute we left we were made to feel at home. You have to realise that this is someones house and is not a hotel; it is a beautifully judged B+B. Here you get the personal touch, advice about where to visit and where to eat. We were able to park our car outside every day, but were also shown where else we could park is there were no spaces.

The room was big and very airy. The bathroom only has a shower, but this wasn't a problem. The bed was comfortable and extra pillows were provided when requested. The breakfasts are vast and the choice was excellent. Each day we were given either a fruit bag or sandwiches, such a nice touch.

There is a church immediately outside the hotel and although the bells did ring a couple of times it didn't bother us. The old town is small enough to explore but big enough to keep you occupied.
