HOTELS AND PENSIONS - OUR FAVOURITES
Perfectly located, that’s Hotel Agamemnon, the only hotel at the pedestrianized seafront and with stunning views. Bathrooms are fairly newly renovated, otherwise the rooms are quite standard. Nice breakfast in the dining room.
Well-run Hotel Marianna is located high up in the old town, with lovely rooms on different levels of a house that somehow has “grown” gradually in the slope. Not all rooms have a balcony or patio, but an outdoor breakfast area / cafe offers great views.
If you want your own kitchen, Pension Dafni in the Old Town, can offer a few rooms at street level of that kind. Stay at the higher floors, and you can have a little sea view and balcony, if you ask for it whn you order. Located in a peaceful street down in the old town.
Lately, several of our friends have been staying in Pension Isabo, smack in the middle of the old town, and loved it. No reception, no elevator, but steep stairs, and only four rooms, but cute and quirky and friendly.
More recommendations from friends: The friendly Hotel Kapodistrias in a quiet staircase in the old town, and with with a breakfast that's both very tasty and plentiful. Make sure you get a room with balcony! The second recommendation is Pension Omorfi Poli, in a pink, well-maintained, old villa in a pedestrian street in the lower part of the old town. Clean, cozy and with a delicious breakfast buffet.
Park Hotel, a budget hotel with nice rooms less than five minutes walk from the old town. Prices include a standard breakfast, if you want something more than that, plenty of cafés nearby serve breakfast from early morning.
Amfitriti Palazzo is more luxurious than the rest of these hotels, but worth it. Almost a neighbor to Hotel Marianna, with the same great views, homemade breakfast with a wide variety of diffrent dishes to be had at the balcony you see at the photo below. Beautifully designed rooms and friendly owners and staff.
Amymone Guesthouse is the place to chose if you want a cozy room and homemade breakfast with (possibly) everything your heart desires. Located on the flat part of the old town, in a quiet street. Nearby, Hotel Adiandi is in a slightly higher price range, has a little more luxury feel and the same delicious breakfast. Both are decorated with style and charm in old, neoclassical houses.
The only (small) swimming pool in the old town, you will find at Hotel Ippoliti. Nafplia Palace is for those with a thick wallet, and there is also a swimming pool there. Guests at Amphitryon Hotel can also use this pool, or so we have heard. Since neither us, nor anyone we know, have stayed at any of these three hotels, we're just mentioning it for those who want a pool when they are in Nafplio.
If you prefer camping, there are an abundance of campsites in Tolo and further southeast
