True Greek hospitality lives on in this hotel!
Posted Sep 22, 2011 on Hotels
If only all hotels could have staff as courteous, acommodating and generous as the that of the Chloe Hotel. Immediately upon my arrival, I was kindly greeted in the typical Greek way. Then, the receptionist processed my check-in without delay. I was also treated to a local sweet made with semolina and ice cream. My room was clean and modern, and was plenty spacious for one person.
Breakfast, which is included in your stay, is fresh and tasty. There were a variety of both English continental items as well as Greek bites.
Though this is not an issue for me, I do want to say that the hotel is approximately 1.5 kilometers (alittle over 1 mile) from the city center. One could easily walk back to the hotel, but I imagine a larger group or those with children may find that challenging. A cab ride was cheap and each can driver I used knew exactly where it was.
The daughter of the owner personally drove me into town and showed me where the sights were before dropping me off at a bike-rental shop. Though it was the low-season when I stayed and such service is not explicitly stated in their list of services, it is an indication of their willingness to please their clients.
The surrounding neighborhood is residential which considering how tightly-packed homes were in the city center was refreshing. The hotel is situated slightly off the main road, and while its facade faces the lake it does not sit on the lake itself - a small price to pay for impeccable hospitality! If your travels take you to Kastoria, I highly recommend this hotel!
