#3 of 16 hotels in Kavala
The Imaret is a world apart, a rare jewel, where East meets West in Northern Greece. A historical monument crowning the hillside overlooking the picturesque harbour of Kavala, the hotel combines the grandeur of Greek Roman and Byzantine Style with a scent of the orient, and the elegance of Hellenic hospitality. The building was the gift of Mehmet Ali, modernising ruler of Egypt in the 1800's, to Kavala, his birthplace.

By far the best hotel in the north of Greece in a stunning, historical setting with very minimal architectural changes. Small boutique hotel with very personal service and great attention to detail by the staff making you feel more like living in a large mansion than in a hotel. The staff went out of their way to make our parents and ourselves comfortable — a special call out to Melina (front office) for her support that started a few days before checking-in with our about our needs and offering proposals and solutions and this continued throughout our whole stay. This was one of the best services with attention to guest needs i ever received At a boutique/top hotel. The same goes for the bar/restaurant staff. The hotel is expensive (rates upwards from 500 EUR a night during the season) ...if they want to continue to play in this top-range then i believe they need to start investing into the property again: the major renovation was 20 years ago and you see now the tear-and-wear of 20 years of hotel/guest use. The other thing i did not like is that the owner (investor) lives at the property and uses the property as her own house including at least 5 (if not more) cats and a dog. While this is a very special place I think it is a overpriced for what it offers (with the exception of the service by the staff!) even more taking into aaccount where it is located (far away from any major city or tourist hub).,

Dear Sir, We would like to thank you for your wonderful comments regarding our service and staff. It is always a great pleasure to know we have succeeded in making our guests feel at home and relaxed during their stay in Imaret. We aim for our philosophy to be as close to “a home away from home” as possible! Indeed, Imaret has been operating from 20 years and the maintenance team does it’s best to keep the monument in the best condition possible. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 this task was very difficult and thank you for bringing it to our attention.

It is a very beautiful place built in 1813 by an Egyptian King, and renovated lately. It is completely different than any other hotel. Surrounded by a wall it is isolated and you only enter by one locked gate. It overlooks the harbour, it has a beautiful garden and a lovely swimming pool. Everything is in Egyptian style, simply amazing to the last detail. The food is excellent and the people are very friendly. It has some 22 rooms, and even the less expensive is really beautiful. I believe it offers a unique experience. We stayed 3 nights and we almost did not go out. Really amazing place.

When we planned the trip to Kavala and booked hotel Imaret all I knew about it was the web site pictures. Thus I walked totally unprepared into one unique and amasing experience. When one arrives at Imaret he/she should not look for a grand entrance; in fact one really needs to pay attention to the "Reception" sign and notice the door bell that upon ringing grants you entrance to the inner world of Imaret. The first impression is perhaps underwhelming until you are shown to the first inner court where serenity governs the senses, the sound of swallows combined with the sound of running water and the view of the pool surrounded by citrus trees soothes your eye sight. And then there is the light and the warmth the envelops you telling you to let go of all the anxieties you brought with you through the entrance. All of a sudden you realise you are somewhere special. The building has a long and turbulent history. So make sure you book the free tour; you will learn everything about the history of the building but also the people who were involved throughout its 200+ years of existence. Our guide, Ismene, was simply excellent. Then there is the room. The moment you enter you are greeted with classical music, candle lights and the smell of herbs. Everything is tasteful and observes the nature of the building as an old Islamic educational centre. Please do not look for a TV; it would be out of character to have one; besides if you need to watch TV while at Imaret you are wasting your money. The building is full of hidden court yards, each one with its own character and yet all conspiring to please the eyes and the calm the soul. Take your time to discover but also to enjoy all areas. The breakfast is home made, the wine list is fantastic and the food cooked perfectly. It would be a terrible omission if I did not mention the hotel staff. Pleasant, helpful, knowledgeable, offering a world class service and making the guest feel at home; as a member of the Imaret family. And George, the resident sommelier, knowledgeable and helpful not only in choosing a wine but also discussing wine choosing, which I found very educational. One afternoon, completely accidentally, we ended up having a long discussion with Mrs Anna Missirian, owner of Imaret. We talked about t the history of Imaret but also about history and politics more widely. For me having a chance to participate in an intellectual discussion is always interesting and desirable. It was an afternoon well spent! So, now, please allow me to go back to my statement regarding this visit being "a most amasing" experience. What made the experience amasing was not one thing but the combination of everything I described above. Yes, Imaret is pricey but so are most luxury hotels. Yes, if you need to ask the price Imaret is probably not for you. But if money is not an issue, let me tell you that no other luxurious hotel treats the soul as well as the senses like Imaret does. Looking forward to visiting again!

I followed an inspiring 30-min guided tour that revealed the great history that exists behind this emblematic hotel - the tour was very professional and is highly recommended at a very low cost - it’s a reference point of Kavala city
