Fodor's Review

An 1860 sponge factory was transformed into this charming character hotel (doors made out of old packing crates still bearing the "Piraeus sponge" stamp, etc.), which has a bevy of alluring delights, including guest-room decor accented with framed portraits, old engravings, four-poster ironwork beds, cozy natural wood lofts, and the hotel restaurant—considered one of the island's best (try the frumenty with shrimps in orange sauce)—which is set in the oleander- and bougainvillea-graced courtyard. Hints of the building's rustic past are visible in the Hydriot gray stonework, exposed-timber ceilings, and wide-plank floors. You'll love the bar-restaurant tables which spill out poolside. Not surprsing, regulars return year after year.
