Loved this hotel! The location is incredible, just out of meteora, the hotel itself is so beautiful, dinner was lovely and the lobby is amazing. Rooms themselves were fairly average though, but we were only there for one night so that wasnt a huge problem.

The rooms were looking old but were clean and the balcony offered great views.Breakfast offered during the two days we stayed there had everything a more pricey hotel has but i'm not sure if this was happening due to the Christmas morning and the day after we were there. Most of the rooms look to the east with no view to the rocks. Ask for a room in the back of the entrance to have spectacular view of the rocks. Mattresses too stiff for me, WIFI not working in the rooms and bathroom a bit smelly to be honest.

Thw hotel was the second hotel of 8 hotels I stayed while on an escorted tour of Athens and the Balkans.Simple and squeaky clean hotel with helpful staff. The balcony was a nice feature of the room. Appreciate the coffee and tea in the room as the other hotels during the tour do not provide any such service. Breakfast buffet had a good selection of food. Only concern ... no wifi in the rooms.

Wifi was only working in the lobby. The staff at the reception did not understand our concerns, so we had to surf in the lobby. Location is almost perfect and everything was clean. However, the room was still not ready at 16:00 in the evening!!

We choose Kalambaka for its central position to visit the greek-orthodox churches in Meteora area. Moreover from the hotel you have an impressive panorama on the giant and impressive rock formations. The hotel staff is more than friendly and gave us the feeling being at home. The room was very clean, nicely decorated in local, rural stile and we had a balcony with a superb view over the rock formations. After our visit to the monastery (tour of about 5 hours) we could relaxed at the hotel swimming pool, nice and quite. Breakfast was above all expectations, abundant. With compliments

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.
