Time to renovatePosted Dec 31, 2016 on Hotels
Wifi was spotty and subject to outages due to excessive client capacity. Reserved a double bed plus a single for two adults and child, arrived to find 2 single beds and a cot crammed into small room. No fridge, tiny 80's tv with8 channels. Good water pressure but very dated bathroom.

AwesomePosted May 23, 2016 on Hotels
We arrived after midnight after a long drive and the desk clerk couldn't have been nicer. Our room had the most amazing view of the mountains all lit up from our balcony. Breathtaking

Should be more than 3 stars!Posted Dec 1, 2015 on Hotels
I cannot believe the quality of this hotel. When looking at this hotel I was hesitant to book after reading the comments but decided to give it a go from the great price and pictures online... I am so glad I did! My family and I booked 2 rooms, they were clean and up to date. Our rooms also had a great view of the mountains, which was just breath taking. The beds (each room with 2 twins) were incredibly comfortable, it was difficult for me to get up in the morning for the free breakfast. We went during off season (month of November) and as it seems (because we didn't see/hear anyone else) we had the entire hotel to ourselves. Breakfast was great, you had all the basics, no complaints. The lobby was gorgeous- filled with chandeliers, beautiful well kept furniture and the fireplace brought an added warm touch. I definitely recommend this hotel to future guests and can assure you it is an amazing price for everything it offers.

Try somewhere elsePosted Nov 6, 2015 on Hotels
For the price, Hotel lobby was great. Rooms were okay, but hot. Went to the desk the next morning and asked to change rooms as the air conditioner didn't seem to work. Lady had attitude from the beginning and said Oh, no. First we have to see if there is really a problem. She sent someone up, said it was because we opened the door to the balcony. I explained that I did not open the door until it was so hot that we needed relief. She again said there was nothing wrong with the air. My sister next door said her room was also hot. I called Hotels.com, they spoke to the desk also said lady would not listen to anything, and they would send me to a different hotel, but had to transfer me. New person came on, told her situation, she had to speak to the desk, said they put restrictions on the air at a moderate temperature. She did not move us to another property. The thermostat registered between 89 & 90 degrees F. We went out for the day, and that night, the room was cooler. Another complaint was the breakfast. The milk was lukewarm and had a bug in it. The hot water for the tea was also lukewarm. The whole breakfast was sparse and unappealing.

Famisssi Hotel worth the reasonable price.Posted Apr 21, 2015 on Hotels
The Famissi was a pleasant place to stay.The staff was attentive and spoke English. While not a five star establishmnent it was adequate in every way. The double room was a bit small but handleable.It had an attarctive and amplelobby and the breakfast was very good. I would rcommend this hotel for a stay in Kalambaka

End of townPosted Nov 30, 2014
Pros: priced less
As the town is not so big, the facility is within walk-able distance from station and center of the town. however, it stands on the end and takes 5~6min to center 7~10min to station. My room facing Meteora was really good but the heater was broken and did not function at all. It also needs to be added the wifi is available only in the lobby.

Falling downPosted Nov 5, 2014
Pros: The view out to Meteora rocks, but lots of hotels in Kalambaka (which always have room at short notice) have this.
Cons: Eating facilities. The staff try to be very helpful, but since no-one complains as they only stay 1 night, they don't realise there are problems
The staff were very helpful, but there is a limit to what they can do with a hotel that was badly built in the first place, and has now reached the end of its' shelf-life. The first room I was offered was next to the stone staircase and smelt badly. The next looked good, but turned out to be under the old-fashioned clanking boiler or some such. I was able to sleep between 1.30am and 4.30am only that night, and moved hotel in the morning despite having paid Expedia (non-refundable) for 3 nights in advance: otherwise I would have been dead by the end of the stay. The upper floor is disintegrating. The Famissi Group own several hotels this end of Kalabaka, and the most sensible thing to do - given the Meteora monasteries are fabulous and unique and tourism is bound to increase - is to knock it down and build a good hotel. (The bathrooms are particularly awful). The reason it has survived so long is that it caters for tour groups which stay only one night so don't bother to complain (that's also the reason they don't cater for dinner for independent travellers - beware when it says it has a restaurant).
