“A nice surprise”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

I stayed here out of season and was impressed by the friendliness and the quirky but wholesome character of this hotel. It's seen as the budget option in Monemvassia as it isn't inside the Byzantine city, but anywhere else in the Med it wouldn't suffer from this rather unfair disadvantage; the view over the tint harbour and port is what many people will be looking for on the Greek mainland, unspoilt, pretty, quinessentially Greek. Other rooms overlook the peninsular fortress. There is a delightful garden and interesting local art in the clean rooms. The owner drove me to the castle to save me a walk, although the walk is in fact short and pleasant, and a minibus anyway runs in summer. Great if you're geeting the bus, as it's right next to the stop.

We spent one night in this hotel with our grandchildren in a family room which was clean and spacious with two balconies and views of Monemvasia and the harbour.We arrived before the official checkin time but were made welcome.Although listed as a one star we have stayed in higher rated hotels that were not of this standard. Breakfast was standard except for facilities for making ham and cheese toasties! Pleasant cafe bar for drinks and ice creams.Bus to monemvasia on the doorstep. Would certainly use it again.

First time we arrived in Monemvasia it was too late and we were too tired to look for something in the castle, so we stopped here. The hotel is quite clean and acceptable for the price (45 euro), we had a room with sea view, the hotel was recently renovated, the breakfast was quite poor but acceptable. For this money you can gen a room at Malvasia, in the castle, but without sea view. Aktaion is ok for a low budget trip.
