I visited here on a geography field trip in October 2007. The fact that I remember the owners, location and some of the decor is testament to them. My memory is awful sometimes. I couldn't remember the name though so I'm delighted to come on here and find it. Can't wait to go back!

Arrived here by ferry with a group of ten people. Coming from Canada, this hotel met my expectations of what an isolated Greek island getaway would look like. The owner is a wonderful genuine woman who greeted us with open arms and made us all feel special. The hotel has a waterfront cafe style restaurant where our breakfast was served....

Very welcoming owner and great dinning area perched over the water. Great breakfast. In terms of value for money, ten out of ten. Brilliant base for treking. Would stay again in a heartbeat...and I...

I've never tried other hotels in Loutro, just Sofis Hotel for 2 nights last May 2015. Our room was not so special but comfortable with one of the best balcony that offers the best angle or view (I believe) of Loutro. I've enjoyed eating breakfast in its Cafe with Wi-fi. Nice people. Just had problem with the warm water in...

As others have said, this a very simple (and inexpensive) little hotel, and yes the rooms are quite basic but very clean. The owners are really helpful and friendly, especially Christina and her son who runs the bar. The terrace is lovely and the decking extends right over the water. Breakfast suited us fine, just fresh juice, lots of toast...

Before our visit to Loutro, we spent a few days in Rethymon Old Town, and afterwards in Chania Old Town. In both of these we stayed in restored Venetian Town Houses. Beautiful restorations offering lovely rooms in very well run establishments. Greece really moving to offer top notch standards at nice prices. Loutro was like going back to the Greece...
