Kostas and Mary hotel: "Small and friendly" Skiathos Hotel Tip by David-M

Skiathos Hotels: 18 reviews and 38 photos

The Kostas and Mary hotel in Skiathos town is the archetypal small and friendly hotel. Many of the 22 rooms are booked via tour operators and many of the guests (at least when we were there in Sep) were middle age British couples on repeat visits. And its easy to see why they return.

Tucked away in a walled garden 5 mins walk from the harbour front, the hotel is ideally situated. Whilst the hotel has few facilities by large, modern hotel standards, it is spotlessly clean and the rooms all have tv's and balconies. The pool, the pool area and pool bar are equally clean and welcoming and even though the hotel was fully booked, there were always enough sunbeds and parasols for all. The food, typically Greek, was good.

And Kostas and Mary were great hosts as were the staff - sometimes noisy (with laughter) , sometimes wacky (the waitress sang whilst she worked most breakfast times) but always good fun. Perhaps we were lucky with a lively group of guests but my guess is its often like that.

Thoroughly recommended

Address: Behind the Alkyon Hotel
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: From the bus terminal, head for the Alkyon hotel. Turn left and continue across the staggered crossroads leaving the fire station on your left. Its on your left - an archway with a small sign on the wall (its not easy to find)
