If you are on a budget, Hotel Meteora is a good choice. Bad points first: The bathroom is small. I’m 190 cm and my head touched the ceiling and knees touched the wall when sitting on the loo. The shower was a hand held type and awkward to use. The mattress was a tad on the hard side. Good points: The staff were friendly. There is parking outside the hotel as it’s at the end of a road. Short walk to the town square. Breakfast was large (photo below) and included in the €50 price tag.
Good hotel, but the very best thing about it are the views from every single window of the rock outcroppings. Room was good, clean, and neat. Good sized room and good shower. Hotel has the look and feel of a lodge Breakfast buffet was plentiful and varied. Surprised that the coffee was instant, but that may just be a prejudice of mine for fresh-brewed. There is a beautiful outdoor pool if you are there in the summer. Very close to the monestaries and hermit caves. There were hikers along the road, but I was glad to be in a tour bus, with INCREDIBLE driver
Have stayed yesterday on the 30th of October for a night. It is just outside Meteora. Keep an eye on the signs. Staff has been very helpful. Room has been very clean We stayed in a triple room with panoramic view for 80 euros per night. View has been stunning. Breakfast had a large variety. During night there is a fireplace, near the bar, were you can seat and enjoy ur drink. Two disadvantages were that maximum heating in the room could go up to 23 degrees. Also, there were no wifi into the rooms. If they settle these two issues it will definitely be one of the best hotels in Meteora.
It is clean, beds are comfortable, shower is good, rooms are ugly, view is great, no internet in the rooms, breakfast is included but is very average. So, I Can't really complain but I also find it hard to recommened.
If you want stunning views of the hills behind Kalambaka and Kastraki and a tranquil stay, then this is your hotel. It is slightly out of town and not really accessible by foot, although it can be done. This effectively means you need to eat dinner at the hotel unless you have a car or don't mind getting a taxi to and from town. The dinner is average, both in terms of quality and price. It could be better. The same goes for the breakfast which was quite large in terms of choice but not great in quality. The staff were extremely helpful and the receptionist both advised us on, and booked, our sunset tour of the Monasteries which was well worth the money. The room and hotel were clean and as long as you are fine with the remote location, then I would recommend staying here as a base for exploring Meteora.
We loved our stay there. We wish we've arrived earlier to enjoy the sun by the pool. View from the pool is great, even from the breakfast/dining room. Hotel clean, spacious, large choice of food at breakfast. Sotiris, at the reception, with his fluent knowledge of Italian language, was very courteous and always helpful
Stayed here for one night and it was a great experience. The hotel grounds are STUNNING, especially the pool with the mountain views, and the amphitheater below. The hotel staff was so kind and helpful and the rooms were clean! My only issue is the tub. There was no shower curtain so when I showered the water went everywhere 😔. But that's my only issue- other than that it was amazing!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
We booked a double room at the price of 180 euros for 2 nights (the price way over the value already). I was a bit concerned about the price but we had good recommendations from locals, especially for the view. Well the view is great, but that's the amazing landscape of Meteora itself, the hotel has nothing to do with that. The first thing you want to know is that the hotel is isolated and you won't be able to find it the first time, guaranteed. The rooms are decently cleaned, I had many better and cleaner stays in Greece, but be advised that the towels won't be changed every day. The TV in our room seemed to have no signal, we did inform the reception about it but nothing was done. Finally and in disbelief that someone had not done it in the first place I found out that I had to adjust the settings, as if the Tv was being used for the first time. The amenities are pretty basic at best. There are no outside shutters so you will wake up pretty easily. Moreover during our stay we found two centipedes but ok let's skip this matter as well since it is the countryside. The breakfast just won't do it. Breads, cakes, croissant etc were stale, they must have been served one or two times before. Omelette was not edible, at least for my taste. Only two employees were occupied in the huge breakfast area so the tables were not being cleaned on time and wasps were having a party. But let's just say that is the small stuff. On the second day, we returned to the hotel close to midnight only to find out that it was packed with cars and and people because of a wedding ceremony. Of course no parking space was reserved for the hotel guests and as a result I had to park about 400 meters from the hotel, in the middle of nowhere since as I have stated already the residence is isolated, and with the threat of it being stolen or damaged. The band in the wedding ceremony was playing local instruments "klarina", in very loud levels. When I expressed my reasonable complaints to the receptionist, his response was in the style of "what do you want me to do? This happens all over Greece (big lie). Do whatever you want, I don't care call the police". Of course he never came to fix the tv when I told him again about it. Well on the upside we found out that the rooms are somewhat soundproof. We did not hear the sound from the klarina, just the crackles from the decibels... Unless you are getting married, do not stay at this place!
The view from the hotel is amazing and the hotel look is really nice. It is obvious that some time in the past this hotel was real luxurious. But really poor maintenance transformed this hotel to max 6 out of 10 rating. The biggest issue is the pool. The water are green (!!) and dirty. The water level is below the pool surface. It simply doesn't look inviting to get in. I've never encountered such poor pool maintenance and I estimate that it is although risky health wise. The poor maintenance is obvious also inside the room. The door that cannot be locked, the bathroom which looks tiered, the bath shower hose that was assembled in the opposite direction. In the public area a WC sink with water tap that is not working (not connected to water). And more. Lastly the breakfast and dinner was mediocre at best. Hotel manager: revamp your maintenance and chef and your hotel will get 9 out of 10 easily!
Finding this hotel on TripAdvisor is confusing: there this one - "Hotel Meteora", there is a "Meteora Hotel", and there is a "Grand Meteora Hotel"! The pictures don't help much either because they may be posted by clients who were also confused. I think I found the right one judging by the pool. This is one of those hotels that thinks it's more than it really is. I encountered this in other hotels, usually in hotels for groups, which I believe is also the case here. It is not a luxury hotel, it's a 4 star hotel with things left to be desired. The hotel is isolated, outside the village, which is great if you want peace and tranquility, but not so great if you don't have car. It's a bit tricky to find by car or to find the village from the hotel, but no big issue. The building and the grounds are OK. Rooms are nothing special. Air conditioner in room was very weak. The main attraction is the view and the pool, although the pool is not large enough and can get very crowded. Wifi is available (sort of) only in the Reception area - as other people mentioned this, it's obviously misleading advertising, despite what they say at the hotel. Breakfast was decidedly among the poorest we had in Greece - even the coffee was undrinkable. The restaurant... We had an interesting experience there: as per advice of earlier waiter, we waited until 9.15 pm to go to dinner (they had a large group at 8.30 pm). Our waiter (a different one) was a bit "breezy". He brought bread (unremarkable) and a bottle of water without being asked (they charge for it). We ordered vegetables soup for both of us, telling him that we'll order the rest afterwards. Half an hour later he shows up with only one soup - he hadn't understood we both wanted soup... Took another 15 minutes for husband to get his, without the stick of toasted and oiled bread that mine came with. The soup was good, but not hot enough. After apologizing for the "misunderstanding" when he brought the second soup, our waiter disappeared and was not to be seen again. By now, we had enough and left. Next day, we came back hot and exhausted from touring monasteries and wanted lunch but were advised that the kitchen was not opened yet - ?! They actually got going much behind schedule. We had an indifferent salad and bread, hardly worth the price.
