Great place to stay!

Without going into details, all of the positive reviews of Andromeda Pension that you can read are absolutely true. Great location, great service, friendly owners, excellent all-homemade buffet breakfast, great overall value for the price.
Old town Nafplio is wonderful. For those of you in the USA, it is similar to a mini version of the French Quarter in New Orleans, but more refined. It is a beautiful place to walk around, dine and shop. There are many shops with locally handcrafted clothes, shoes, jewelry, etc. (somewhat pricey though). It is a short drive to a Venetian castle, Mycenea, Epidavros and nice clean beaches. Rent a car with GPS and you will have no real problems driving from Athens to here.
One thing to remember when you come to Andromeda Pension- it is on a narrow pedestrian street and you cannot drive to the hotel entrance. You must park at the long parking lot at the port along the harbor. Parking is free and it is an easy 3 minute walk even with luggage. Also, the street sign says Ypsilandrou, not Ipsilandrou.
If I had the chance to do my trip over, I would spend less time in Athens and more time here, it is just more peaceful and beautiful here.
