Thank you for your nice review!We are pet friendly hotel and all pets are welcome.
Happy New Year!
We spent 3 nights - a couple with 2 teenagers. The hotel is great. Rooms are clean, the staff is very kind and friendly. The breakfast is excellent, simply excellent. The staff was very flexible with us and on the second night we asked to move to the suit instead of 2 rooms and they cooperated with us with no extra charge. Portaria is a great place, the view is breathless. highly recommended.
The place is clean, offers free wifi (the connection is as good as in any other Greek village 2mbps download) , the standard room is small with small toilet.
Individual heating and a small fridge.
Lights in toilet are dimmer than should be.
Curtains are dark enough.
Breakfast has small choice, but good handmade things. Breakfast area is small.
If you get the room at a good price it is a good deal.
Municipal free parking 50 meters away.
We spent five days in this spotless and tastefully refurbished guesthouse. Excellent sumptuous breakfasts, log fires and helpful staff. We stayed in a double room in the old 19th century mansion and despite this everything worked perfectly (heating, wifi, bathroom, gowns and slippers). In the heart of Portaria with restaurants and bars close by one can park and leave the car. The scenery in autumn is breathtaking and suitable for long walks and fantastic photographs. The traditional village of Makrinitsa is only a couple of kilometres away and must not be missed. With a car, there is easy access to Volos and to the rest of the Pelion area. This was our first visit to the region but we will be back.
My husband and I had booked a package Easter holiday to Pelion a few weeks in advance, yet the package did not specify the kind of accommodation we'd paid for. However, all we really wanted was a memorable holiday at Pelion regardless of the type of accommodation. This is why we didn't expect much considering the reasonable price of the package - €549 per person for four nights including air tickets, accommodation, excursions and two festive meals.
To our surprise, we were warmly welcomed to a fine "archontiko" - a mansion - which many 5-star hotels around the world would envy. The mansion dates back to 1839 and has been refurbished respecting the architecture of the famous mansions of Pelion: From the ground floor a wooden staircase leads to the rooms. Naturally, there is no lift!
We had Room 3 on the first floor and say that I was thrilled would be an understatement. The perfectly polished wooden floor, the bed with the iron bars, the wooden ceiling, the window with the old-fashioned curtains, the wooden shelves in the bathroom, the fireplace...all these contributed to great sleep quality. On the other hand, all facilities provided by a standard 5-star hotel were there : bathrobes, towel slippers, soaps and shampoo in the bathroom, fragrant velvety towels not to mention the mini bar. In the mini bar there were two small bottles of mineral water and two small bottles of votka...on the house! As we don't drink Votka, we ordered two more bottles of water but, when we offered to pay, they said they were on the house! I would like to know which standard 5-star hotel has a similar offer!
There is no 5-star hotel lobby. There's a very elegant and cosy living room which was beautifully decorated for Easter. There you can sit back in the comfortable sofas, enjoy a drink or a snack and converse with other guests. It really feels like home!
Breakfast is copious and consists of a wide variety of breads, homemade jam, their divine honey (I recommend it!), croissants and ...yes , we had tsoureki on Easter Day (a kind of Greek brioche). You will also find fresh tomato slices with oregano and feta cheese, greek olives and a wide range of traditional Greek pies and sweets.
If you are looking for the standard 5-star resort hotel , well, this is not the right place for you. This is a guest house, an old mansion which can turn with envy many classy 5-star hotels. I recommend it to anyone who appreciates simplicity combined with elegance and the love for nature, of course.
Σας ευχαριστούμε πάρα πολύ για τα καλά σας λόγια, είστε πολύ ευγενική και θα είναι ιδιαίτερη τιμή για μας να σας έχουμε ξανά κοντά μας!!
The hotel is an old house which is fully renovated.
It is very clean and the personnel are very polite.
We visited the hotel with another family with children.
Most of the residents were couples and we might have been a bit annoying to them, although they never showed that.
The breakfast is excellent and full of handmade traditional food.
It is highly recommended.
