Reviewed 11 September 2017

The owners were indifferent from the moment they met us.The owner picked 3 couples from the ferry port and when we arrived at the hotel we were all asked to wait.The owner purposely left us to the very last to check in and we were given a very small,dark room whilst the other 2 couples were shown up stairs.The bathroom only had cheap shampoo and very tiny soap bars.The hot water tank had enough hot water for one person and we would have to wait for 10 minutes for the tank to heat up again..The location of the hotel is at an intersection and there is a constant buzz of traffic all the time.The pool area is extremely noisy with outside traffic.

Breakfast is terrible with no fresh fruit.Just yogurt,canned orange juice,toast and very dry piece of cake.Pathetic!

The owner took us to the ferry an hour and a quarter earlier and we sat around the port in the hot sun as there was little shelter around until the ferry boat arrived.When we asked him how long the wait would be when he dropped us,he nonchalantly said an hour plus!We could have stayed at the hotel relaxing for an hour as the ferry terminal is 10 minutes from the hotel!It was like he did not want us hanging around the hotel!

In our 3 days there,he hardly smiled or gave us proper information about the island.We met other tourists whose hotel provided proper maps,excellent breakfasts,water view and HOSPITALITY.The owner of Kallisti hotel is rude,ungracious and made us feel like we were not welcome.Everywhere in Greece we have encountered lovely ,helpful people.Kalisti's treatment left us disturbed.We would not recommend this place.

The owner and his family made us feel like guests at their house and not like tourists. They helped us with anything we needed ( recommended restaurants& beaches depending on weather) and were very friendly throughout our stay. Breakfast was fulfilling ; we enjoyed thick slices of local bread, tasty pieces of cake, orange juice, freshly brewed coffee and chilly local yogurt along with butter, honey and marmalade.
The room was absolutely beautiful, the hotel very quiet and the cleanest hotel I've even been to! Location was ideal, just a minute walk from the island's popular Chora village.
Their hospitality was a big factor on us having such an amazing time in Folegandros. Thank you for everything, I will be back!

Room Tip: Give them a call and let them know you want to book a room. They will help you with ferry schedules...

A well maintained and very clean hotel. Run by a lovely family who were happy to help make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We all loved our rooms and had a few lazy afternoons by the pool area - also clean and comfortable. The location was great - I liked that we weren't right in the center of town.

We stayed on beautiful Folegandros for 4 days. There are only a few small beaches on this island therefore we, like many other visitors, have chosen a hotel with a swimming pool. The hotel is clean and nice but you cannot enjoy spending your time at the pool. The little pool area is located right next to a main road of the island which leads almost everywhere. Therefore all the noisy buses and the cars of the island actually ride right next to the low wall that separates your chaise longue from the road while you're trying to relax a bit by the pool. For this price there are plenty of others hotels on the island with spectacular views and quiet relaxing pool areas.

This was my second stay at Kalisti Hotel. The location of Kalisti is perfect. Everything about Kalisti was beautiful. It is probably one of the cleanest well kept hotels I have ever stayed at. The people that run this hotel are friendly, kind and very helpful. It has great views, the pool is amazing and the rooms are beautifully kept. I would recommend Kalisti Hotel to anyone visiting the beautiful island of Folegandros. Nada
