An elevator whisks you from the Old Town up to the extensive grounds, spacious rooms, and luxurious suites perched high above Nafplion on the ruins of the Frankish fortification atop Acronafplia—at first glance, the public spaces tend to be cavernous and austere, but the delightful pine-scented terraces and swimming pools seem to hang in midair, high above the city and bay. Rooms in the hotel wing are undergoing some much-needed renovations that include handsome contemporary
furnishings and all sorts of electronic gadgetry to open drapes, dim lighting, and control high-tech showers (insist on a room that's been refurbished, and stay elsewhere if you are unable to obtain one). Suites in the "villas" wing are equipped with sumptuous bathrooms, sliding glass walls, and chic modern furnishings; some have private pools and huge terraces.

Hotel is on a high hill (next to the castle);all rooms face the bay and the lower town; elevator through the rock to the town and the ocean front. Breakfast, with great selections of nice food, on the terrace with the same view; service nice. Dinner - one good, one inedible. Would revisit of we go there again.

We stayed on Set 23 2001. Excellent food, excellent staff, excellent outlook. No telephone jack for internet. An ant's nest in the room. The bathroom was a disgrace. The " renovations" were of an unbelievably shoddy standard. The toilet leaked. The air conditioning controls could not be found. This is a 4 star hotel trying very hard to be a 2 star hotel.
