Located in the port of Kea isl., and in the center of the city of Korrisia, Karthea hotel is the best choise to begin your vacation in Kea. Only the front rooms have a good view of the port. The place is rather quiet (in the summer after midnight). There is a problem with the parking as the only closest...

I struggled with giving a star rating for this hotel but it was somewhere between 3 and 4. during our three night stay in June 2016. Upon entering the public areas it appeared to be a homely traditional hotel. I had requested a quiet room on the upper floor with a sea view which was exactly what was allocated when...

Very nice hotel, clean room and beautiful view (we had a sea side room). People complaining about the siz of the balcony probably had a room on the side. But those balconies are also big enough to sit on a chair at a table, what more would you want ? People are friendly, breakfast basic, but sufficient. Nice place to,...

The Hotel Karthea is a wonderful hotel. It is in an excellent location. Close to restaurants. Steps away from the beach. Located in the port. The rooms are lovely. Well appointed and super clean. The staff is outstanding. All of them are super friendly and helpful, especially Maria. She was wonderful. We truly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay...

After my unfortunate experience at Porto Koundouros this hotel was a wonderful surprise. It has a great location overlooking the harbour . My room was spacious and totally soundproof. The staff could not have been nicer and were most helpful given my lack of Greek and their not so great English. A very nice breakfast that could ,perhaps do with...

After a four night stay in this hotel, the only thing I have to say is that the receptionists are the most rude persons I have ever met. Totally unprofessional, when I asked them to change room (since it was too small and I could only sit on the bed, too dark also, the balcony was up to 40cm width...

Dear Aliki L The reservation you made with us was for two rooms; arrival date 17/8 and departure date 21/8 for a twin sea-view room on the third floor and one standard double, garden-view on the first floor. You were aware of these details of your reservation in advance, the day when you did the booking. Furthermore the price for...

The owner is really not pleasant. We were promised a balcony and sea view but the balcony was too narrow , and wasn't possible to sit in at all... We also got village view instead of sea view, and ended up looking at some garbage bins! The air conditioning didn't work well... When we left because of that after 2...

The true story. All triple rooms in our hotel do not have sea view, therefore the reservation which was made through booking .com was inevitably with village view . The initial reservation was for 8 days , then via e mails was reduced to 5 days . The next day of their arrival decided to stay only two days .We...

Stayed 3 nights at Karthea and am very happy with my choice. The staff is very helpful and friendly - eg providing me with a beach bag and towel and cooking additional eggs for me for breakfast. The location couldn't be better, right in front of the sea with all the restaurants and shops all within walking distance. I love...

I have often been disappointed in Greece by 2 & 3 star category hotels, owners are often not suited to the industry etc. However I was pleasantly surprised to find this little gem of a place in Korissia Kea Island. Clean comfortable and lovingly decorated. The proprietors know what hospitality us all about. I would highly recommend this hotel for...
