Me and my girlfriend spent one night at this nice hotel which is located about 10 minutes driving time from Kalamata downtown. It is not ideally located if you want to be next to the city center but it pays off with the magnificent views.
We chose the specific hotel because we were attending a wedding reception held at the hotel.
The public spaces are very nicely maintained and although the building is not new it does not give away its age easily. The room we had was on the second floor, it was very clean but it could be more spacious - not that we had a problem with space - just saying. The bathroom amenities were nice but nothing to brag about. Also there can be an issue with foot steps noise as the corridors are not carpeted and you can sometimes listen to the people walking outside your room. The major advantage of this hotel is the amazing view it offers from almost every room and all public spaces, it is rather elevated from the sea level and it offers breathtaking views of the Kalamata gulf. The 2 pools looked very refreshing and inviting but we didnt get a chance to use them. One of the pools was set up for the wedding reception we attended and i must say that i was impressed by the quality and quantity of food and the service, we really enjoyed ourselves staying up dancing and singing until almost 5 AM.
The biggest dissapointment to me was the breakfast - both in quality and variety. I could really expect something better, it is something that the hotel should look at, it was included in our rate but i wouldnt mind paying a little extra for breakfast alone if the quality and the variety would be better.
I would recommend this hotel if being close to the city centre is not your priority and you want a nice view from your room.
