Quiet, Nice, and Close to the Sights!
Posted Sep 24, 2016 on Hotels
The owners of Papasthatis were so lovely and do a great job of maintaining their beautiful little hotel. It's at the very end of the road before you hit the actual monasteries, so it is quiet and provides gorgeous views from your room. The breakfast is nice, with the fresh yogurt and honey being especially delicious. The biggest selling point for me was the hotel's close proximity to the best views of Meteora, hiking trails, and several of the monasteries—you can get to four of them within 30 minutes from the hotel door. There were several people starting rock climbing just a few kilometers from the hotel as well. Busses also stop at Papasthatis and pick up any visitors who may want to ride around the mountains to visit all of the sights in one go.
From Guesthouse Papasthatis it's an easy walk to the village center of Kastraki (10 min) for dinner, or down to Kalabaka (about 30 min). Taxis are about 5 eur. from the center of Kalabaka, and run until 11PM. The villages are both great for delicious food, sights, and some shops. We really loved our stay in the Meteora region, and in large part because of this lovely hotel!
