Miranda Hotel Review

Antique-lovers might feel right at home among the 18th- and 19th-century furniture and decor (Oriental rugs, wooden chests, nautical engravings, ceilings painted in detailed Venetian motifs) decorating this traditional Hydriot home, built around 1810 for a Captain Danavasis and now classified by the Ministry of Culture as a national monument—for a change of pace they can head to the main salon, whose walls are hung with giant black and white photographs, or go outside to a garden lush with pink and red blossoms. The hotel recently celebrated its 50-year anniversary with a special book about its rich history. The two suites on the top floor, Nos. 2 and 3, have balconies, sea views, and graceful ceiling frescoes done by Venetian painters. The continental breakfast is served in the interior courtyard.
