Skopelos has a fair number of hotels, Skiathos a huge number, and Skyros has relatively few. Most hotels close from October or November to April or May. Reservations are a good idea, though you may learn about rooms in pensions and private homes when you arrive at the airport or ferry landing. The best bet, especially for those on a budget, is to rent a room in a private house—look for the Greek National Tourism Organization (EOT or GNTO) license displayed in windows. Owners meet incoming ferries to tout their location, offer rooms, and negotiate the price. In Skyros most people take lodgings in town or along the beach at Magazia and Molos; accommodations are basic, and not generally equipped with TVs. Always negotiate rates off-season.
