We went to the small island for 3 days Friday- Sunday. We stayed in Armata hotel, which is very good located, since you can go everywhere by foot (in Spetses no car is allowed). This small hotel is very clean but not all teh rooms are quite good. We stayed at number 10, first floor. No balcony, small room, no window on the small bathroom. There was no place to hung our swimsuits and towels after the see. No view at all and the price 110euros with breakfast (I think is over priced). Breakfast is nice, hand made, you can have it untill 10:30 but if you go at 10:00 some choices have finished without being replaced. If you go, ask for the rooms with the balkony, with pool view. These are the only ones that worth it, lets say.
Clean, good location
I was invited for a friend's wedding on Spetses Island, and was recommended Armata Hotel, which is at the center of Spetses, only a few meters from the pier. I booked a double room on the second floor with a balcony. It was exactly what I needed. A small, cozy hotel with elegant rooms, amazing atmosphere and fantastic people. The swimming pool was crystal clear and the surrounding area was full of flowers. The hotel itself has a special Spetsiot architecture and along with the simple but very well examined decoration, makes it very intimate. The breakfast was a more like a feast. Traditional Greek desserts and pies, pancakes, muffins, fresh fruit or even some great French recipes I trully enjoyed.
Apart from the fact that it is located ideally at the centre of Spetses Island, it is very quiet. I appreciate peace and quiet during my vacations and I thought that it was really a treasure that there was no noise, as it was well hiden. Additionally, I have to confess that it is a hotel impeccambly clean. You can smell the cleaniness in the air, and also feel that in all the areas of the hotel. Drinking your coffee by the pool is very relaxing, while listening to lounge music by the pool bar. The garden is fantastic, however what makes this accommodation outstanding is the people running the hotel. Very happy, smiley from their heart people who had all the time to talk with you about the island, the history of this place and spend quality time with their guests.
Rooms are basic but clean, bathrooms could use updating but are functional. The location is perfect just off the waterfront in between the old and new harbour. There is a communal roof top deck that has a great view. There is also a communal kitchen that is available for everyone's use. I really think this a great value on fairly expensive island.
Kastro is a beautifully renovated old mansion, constructed in the islands' traditional style and colour. Although in the centre of town, the property is quiet and peaceful, which makes it the perfect holiday choice. Kastro includes studios, apartments and maisonettes accommodating from 2 to 6 people.
I didnt stay there but it is difficult to miss this building. It is old and it looks old, but I think it has a history that makes it attractive.
