Extremely helpful staff and decent breakfast. Location was excellent - about a minute's walk to the beach. Hotel Rachel is extremely good value for money.

Nice family run hotel on a small island town.

The owners are very helpful and thoughtful. We would stay here again and would recommend our friends stay here to. Very nice breakfast included in the price.

Great. Writing my only hotel review in 5 years.

Posted Apr 25, 2016
Pros: I liked the detail. They had tvs, bug repellers, and lots of other little touches. They clearly think through every aspect of the hotel. Nice.
Cons: No comments.
Location: a great homebase to explore the island. very close to the temple.
I stay in hotels +300 nights per year. This is my first review. This is a very well-located (20 feet to beach), clean hotel run by two exceptionally friendly owners. They greeted me warmly. Gave me all sorts of information about the island. And left a nice Greek desert in my room while I was out. The next morning they helped me start my dead scooter. And I noticed they greeted me by name every time I saw them (not sure how they can remember names like that). Highest recommendation. This is the hotel to stay at on Aegina.

Wonderful place!

Posted Apr 24, 2016
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Absolutely nothing - I would not change a thing!
Location: Beautiful location, a stones throw from the beach. Plenty of really good tavernas, serving gorgeous traditional Greek dishes. Fabulous people.
We could not have been happier with our stay at Hotel Rachel. It is a very short walk from the bus stop (maybe 2 minutes) and the minute we walked in the door, we were made to feel welcome and special. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the rooms are very comfortable. The beach is 200 steps away (I counted), and it is absolutely beautiful. The room had a hairdryer, fridge, kettle, iron and ironing board and air conditioning. The shower was lovely and hot. The breakfast was perfect - a huge choice of cereals, Greek yoghurt and honey, ham, cheese, eggs and a lovely variety of bread, which was so fresh from the local bakery that it was actually still warm! The hotel owners, Janis and Angelica, were the perfect hosts. The were extremely friendly and welcoming, and after being there for 5 minutes, we felt like old friends, not hotel guests. The lovely lady,ελπίδα, who works hard cleaning the rooms,could not do enough for us and our room was spotless every day. I can honestly say that I shed a tear when we left, as it had been so amazing. The only consolation is that we have already made arrangements to go back in September!

Getaway

Posted Oct 13, 2015 on Hotels
It was a last-minute decision to get away and after a bit of research on Hotels.com I decided on Hotel Rachel and was not disappointed. It is a wonderfully run little gem, the owner's can't be more helpful, the room was perfect for sleeping off a busy day with a lovely view of the bay. The bugs were out in force but the hotel very helpfully supplies a plug-in bug repellent. The fridge is a lifesavernon a hot day, my frozen bottles of water got me through the day. The breakfast buffet is excellent. Highly recommend this hotel!

Great value for money

Posted May 17, 2014
Pros: Giannis and Aggeliki made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived.
Cons: The shower head may have been a little blocked, probably because the island water is hard, not an issue..
Lovely staff made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived. A generous breakfast. A quiet, peaceful location. Accidentally booked in here, meaning to book a hotel on the other side of the island - best mistake we ever made. The local bus was cheap and easy and a great way to see the island.
