I arrived in Kalambaka on the 5:00 pm train, checked into this hotel, checked out in the morning and went on the Meteora tour. The front desk clerk allowed me to leave my luggage in the office after checking out, and said it was okay if I stayed on the property after my tour while I waited for the 5:00 pm train. The hotel is located about 2-1/2 blocks from the main street but it is all uphill. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, and so are the public areas of the hotel. Unfortunately, the pool was closed for maintenance so I didn't get to try it out. Because I went as a single, I was given a small room, with little space to move around the furniture. I was able to peek into other rooms as I walked down the corridor and saw that they were more spacious. The washroom was also small. The room included tea and coffee making facilities. There is one restaurant on the main floor. Buffet breakfast is included with the room. The breakfast had a wide variety of choices which attempted to appeal to all European cultures. The restaurant also serves a fixed price dinner for 14 Euros which included soup, meal sized salad, main dish with potatoes, rice and vegetables, and a dessert. They offer two choices to select from for each course. There are two bars - one in the main dining room, and one on the outdoor patio. The outdoor one wasn't open while I was there. There is a lounge in the lobby which has a piano, and another one on the outdoor patio. All the staff worked hard and tried to make me happy.
Located close to the suspended monasteries of Meteora in Kalambaka,magnifecent views,the room was very comfortable even though the bathroom and the air conditioner leave to be desired The breakfast excellent All things considered the hotel is a good option for a couple of nights
This was my favorite hotel on my Top Deck trip. The rooms were amazing, the location was excellent, the facilities including pool/reception areas was amazing, the restaurant was good. This hotel is quality for the money with a very relaxing ambience. A Lidel supermarket is a short walk away. Plenty of parking. Clean and nice mountainous views.
When we pulled up to the hotel we thought wow. A lovely outdoor and the exterior was well kept. The reception area is grand but that's where it ends. We were shown our room which is basically a travel lodge quality and like with most places stank of cigarettes. We got changed and headed down to the pool. After a two hour drive the kids aged 9 and 12 wanted to let of steam. They were laughing and joking and we were asked to keep them quiet. As other users were there to relax. The other users were not hotel guests but locals. This did annoy me a bit as if you let children into a hotel then expect children to act like children. The pool bar was expensive €5 per beer and €4.50 for a kids juice. So €19 for a drink each. Up to the room and the air con was so loud we had to switch it off. The beds were awful. Two mattresses on each bed. Felt completely unbalanced. Felt like we were going to bounce of each time we moved. In the end hot and bothered hubby went and slept in the car. I had patio door open all night but then did not sleep as was worried somebody might come in. Breakfast was ok. Nothing special not for a 4 star hotel. And £70 per night. Great for convenience but not anything special.
Even if it is true that the rooms are outdated and the sound insulation should be improved as well as the mattresses, for me it was compensated by the very nice pool, the views and the even nicer service. On our first night we decided to have dinner at the hotel as it was rather late and they could not have been nicer in spite of the late hour. Both the person in charge of the restaurant and the girl with him (also helping in the mornings) were the perfect example of what makes Greece such a nice country: it's not just its history, its landscape and its food... among all it's its wonderful people. Back to the hotel description, it is true that it is not in the center of the city, but Kalambaka is small. The breakfast was good with a lot of options (I would improve the coffee though, which was rather "watery"). All in all, I would definitely repeat in this hotel should I return to Kalambaka.
This was a really nice hotel we found after a long drive. The receptionist was lovely and we thought we had found a great hotel at a fair price for our family of three. We decided to stay in the evening we arrived and eat the set menu, which was: spaghetti, cabbage salad, roasted chicken and dessert. It was a great value for the money, but when I asked if they had chicken breast instead of leg, the waiter quite rudely gave me a very stern answer of, "OXI" (NO). Then we packed up to bed. When we checked in we didn't notice that the room had a very narrow double bed (probably no wider than 140cm) and a single bed. My husband and I are over 6' (182cm) and our 12 year old daughter is 5'10" (178cm). Needless ts say, I slept with my daughter in the double. All would have been alright, had the air conditioning worked in the room. We turned on the air conditioning when we went to sleep. I woke at about 12:30 am boiling. I fiddled with the A/C, but as it was late and my family were sleeping, didn't call for help. My husband woke at about 1:00 am, and again, as it was late and we were sleeping, didn't call the front desk. This went on all night. Even our daughter who sleeps through anything was restless all night in a squashed bed and no air conditioning. It is a nice hotel, but check the bed size and double check the A/C. Nice pool and a very good breakfast.
Ok, so after staying in some fairly crappy places in other parts of Greece, this was a refreshing place to stay. It has a beautiful pool and, while the facilities are a little dated, everything seems to be in very good shape. It kinda felt like we were staying at a ski lodge with pretty good Wifi access!
Situated at the basis of one of the celebrated Meteora mountains and a few hundred metres form the town centre, it makes a comfortable place to stay. Food is also good. Rooms at the back have balconies with a lovely view.
The weather wasn't the greatest but than it usually isn't in early March. The hotel though was clean, staff helpful, and breakfast was plenteous. The region needs to be explored as what we saw in the fog and rain was magnificent.
The room was average for Greece, the bed was typically hard for Greece, although the lobby area was attractive. They advertise free wi-fi, but it is only accessible in the lobby; there is NO wi-fi in the rooms. What really sticks out in my mind, is the fact that I booked (and paid for) a 3-bed room with a view of the Meteora monestaries, but the reservation ended up saying there would be two adults. Since there were only two adults, they gave away my room. I believe that if I pay for a 3-bed room, it doesn't matter how many people will sleep there; I should get what I pay for. To make it up to me, they gave me an extra 2-bed room and none of the rooms had a view.
