Orfeas Hotel Kalambaka Reviews
good location, clean rooms and dinner was included May 09, 2009
Our accommodation in this hotel was booked for us by the travel agency that arranged our trip to Kalambaka, Greece. I told them specifically that we are on a budget trip so we don’t mind whether we stay at a 2 star or 3 star hotel. The cheaper, the better!
Hotel Orfeas is a 3-star hotel I believe but at the upper level (attic) of the hotel is like a hostel. That’s where we stayed for overnight.
We had to climb up the stairs from 4th floor. The elevator stops at 4th floor and then we used the stairs to go up into the attic rooms.
The attic room is very nice, clean, and well-ventilated despite of its being an attic.
There are four beds in the open space and a bed in the enclosed room. The enclosed room is good for a couple, while the open space with 4 beds is good for group of back packers. It can also be good for families. There is one common bathroom. Bathroom is equipped with necessities –towels, tissues, shampoos, body soaps, etc.
Dinner was included and was okay.
The hotel lobby is also very charming. The walls are decorated with framed charcoal paintings of the different monasteries nestled above the rocks.
Internet is not included. You have to buy an internet card to use it on the computers in the lobby. The internet is in Greek language though so I was not able to use the card anyway. There should be a way to switch the language but I did not bother to do that anymore.
The location of this hotel is a great plus factor. It is just a few steps away to the town’s plaza where there are pretty water fountains to be enjoyed while people-watching. There are lots of shops and restaurants too.
I highly recommend this place for its location and cleanliness. Please check from their website about current rates.
