Location and Resort:
Skiathos Town is on the east coast, in a bay scattered with small islets. Away from the waterfront, the narrow streets wind past traditionally whitewashed houses with their picturesque red roofs whilst the waterfront itself is a bustling, lively scene, split in two by a promontory, which has a medieval fort, and holds open-air summer concerts. To one side is the Old Harbour, lined with cafes and restaurants. Boats from here will take you to various beaches around the island. On the other side, the new port is the stopping point for all ferries, and is also the place to catch the hourly buses, or taxis.
Eating and Drinking:
Breakfast is served beneath the vines in the hotel garden overlooking the water.
The property does not have a pool but you can walk through the hotel garden and down some steps that lead to the rocks, where you can sunbathe.
This simple hotel will appeal to couples and families looking for comfortable, centrally positioned accommodation with great views. This is a popular base from which you can enjoy a relaxing holiday in Skiathos. The hotel is not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties as there are lots of steps to reach the hotel and cars / taxis cannot drive to the entrance so some walking is involved.
