What can I say?

First impressions can some times be misleading. In our case, the photos we saw on the internet, the raving reviews of the food we came across set the bar really high, and we are from Singapore, a place where food comes easily to us and we have some of the best street food of the world!

We are a company of four and Kritsa delivered not just good food, but fantastic hospitality.

We are a fan of the breakfast spread and all the food on the menu. We must have stuffed our face so full, we must have consumed more than we burned off walking to Makrinitsa, and the Centaur's Path.

We are appreciative of the lovely hostess, Eleni who seamlessly arranged our horse-back riding adventure and to the very helpful Μελετιος who helped us get settled in.

Thank you for making Pelion so wonderfully memorable.

Room Tip: Make sure to call in earlier and make reservations for lunch especially if you are there on a weeken...

I am just back from a weeks stay at this wonderful little hotel in the centre of Portaria. Prior to going I look at the pictures never expecting it to be exactly as it was portrayed.
My room on the 2nd floor had great views and contained everything I needed. Cleaned every day and news towels for use.
I cannot compliment the owner Eleni and her boys enough but also All the staff who could not have been more friendly or helpful. Nothing was to much trouble for them including bringing me up a teapot of hot water and cup every night.
The breakfast was a delight, fresh oranges to squeeze yourself, and fresh cake !! . We ate in the restaurant ever night and were never disappointed. I would go back tomorrow.

Room Tip: I had a top floor room that was perfect and my sister and brother in law had a first floor room that...

We picked the Hotel Kritsa in Portaria after reading the favourable reviews on Trip Advisor. It lived up to the billing and exceeded it. The town square of Portaria where the hotel is located was beguilingly beautiful in the autumn sunlight. The hotel gave us a very warm welcome. The staff were friendly and eager to help with any questions we had. Basically, we just followed their advice and had a series of delightful excursions - up and down the windy roads through the glorious forests of chestnut and maple, to the beaches, to Volos and to the not too distant magnificence of Meteora with its extraordinary collection of monasteries, perched in accessibly on thousand foot high rock pillars. Just a wonderful experience.

The bad of the hotel is 2
1. I dont have internet in my room, i tell the problem to the manager she tells me to fix the problem, bat the problem never fix it.
2. The sound proof of the room its not very good.

All other thinks its very good, and most off all the restaurant she haves very good food.

We picked this place because it got great recommendations. well....
- very far from the beach (10km - but you can drive at 20km/hr so do the math...)
- we had to walk up 3 floors (40+ stairs, no elevator)
- the rooms were so small - we had two joint rooms (2 adults, 2 teenagers), but with one TINY bathroom (you need to stand in the shower to close the door). Very small and stuffy.

The team is really nice and trying - but we had to get away after one night, we just couldn't stand it...
