This hotel, as well as many other buildings on the island, was at one time a mansion (archontikon) that belonged to a wealthy ship owner. Once inside the high walls that surround the hotel, you can't tell that you are at a hotel. It still looks and feels like someone's home. In the front is a courtyard with a few trees, and wrapping around the side of the house is a patio with furniture. The exterior white walls look like they are freshly painted, and the windows are dressed in curtains and shutters.

Walking across the courtyard and up a few steps, you enter the hotel through the leathery wooden double doors. Even inside, the feeling of someone's home is still with you. On the walls are sea faring relics, period fixtures light the air, and faded Persian carpets do their best to protect the wide-planked wooden floors. The only fixture that belies the identity of the building was a low counter on the left hand side of the receiving room that acts as the front desk. Just beyond the receiving room is a great wooden staircase that leads up to the guest rooms.

My room (a single) was small, but so cool. There was a double bed up against a thick, thick outside wall with a huge shuttered window, a great view uphill of homes and trees in nearby villages, an antique nightstand and table, and a design painted on each plank of the ceiling.

Unique Quality: The basement is an art gallery.

It's located far enough back from the port to ensure a quiet stay.

Directions: Turn on the street where the clock tower in the main harbor is located, and walk a couple of short blocks.

You can't miss the hotel - there's an anchor resting against the hotel's front gate.
