Τhe hotel was great! It was elegantly decorated and ideally situated in the heart of Vathi, Ithaca. There was a combination of iron and stone with gave away its origin, as it was an old oil refinery transformed into a boutique hotel. The facilities were good enough. There were even bikes to be used for free! However, if the lovely owners would like to improve something ,that would be their breakfast which was of poor quality compared to the other facilities of that hotel.

Hotel Familia provided us with the perfect holiday getaway. Friendly and helpful staff, delicious breakfast, clean and tasteful rooms. The hotel has a very unique atmosphere with the fusion of old and new. We had a very nice time. I recommend the rooms in the roof! We loved the family-atmosphere.

Room Tip: All are nice, but the rooms in the roof have more light

We stayed here for 2 nights and fell in love with Hotel Familia and Ithaka. We loved the building and the history, the original features infused with modern designer furniture, the modern bathroom, the lovely bed, tasty breakfast and lastly the family who run the B&B. It is a special place which we hope to return to soon and would recommend it to everyone! it is located just behind the restaurants and the harbour so great location. There is no view but the harbour is a 2 minute walk so not a problem in our opinion.

Room Tip: We stayed in the courtyard room - it was nice to have a little area outside to relax in.

A converted olive press, the building has been rennovated into a small number of beautiful guest rooms. The hotel is conveniently located in the centre of Vathy, Ithaki's main town and it offers free bikes for rides on the waterfront. Breakfast was one of the best we've had in Greece, with fresh eggs cooked in a different way every day, homemade pies and rice pudding, and so much more. Best thing about the hotel? The hospitality and great attitude of the family owners ties up all points mentioned above, making it a really memorable stay.

There are words in all languages that are difficult to be translated. One of the them is the Greek word "Meraki": it's definition includes the elements of caring, attention to detail, service, wholeheartedness, consistency, fun. And all these elements are present in their highest form at the Familia hotel in Ithaca. Staying in this hotel is a unique experience. Its lack of a view and perhaps an expected pool is totally outweighed by the sophisticated design, the homey touch, the character rooms, the impeccable service, the finishing touches, and of course the exceptional team who is running it. The name Familia, while initially sounded to me touché, really encapsules the essence of the what the owners had in mind: making you part of a great family. This small hotel has been able to blend naturally and reflect the character of one of greece's most beautiful islands. In practical terms, rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean, the breakfast is a ritual, and the location very convenient. Moreover, it's it is worth every penny, and the penny is really affordable.
