This was an excellent choice for our three days in Molyvos. George is a great host and gave very good directions. This hotel is in the center of the village on the side of a hill and the entrance is tucked away well. It has a fabulous view. This hotel also has common balconies that you can use for a...

Despite being in the centre of the village, the rooms feel very secluded. My room was very clean, simple but with everything I could need for my holidays - a good shower, fridge, wifi, air conditioning and a very good insect screen on the balcony doors. I was looked after extremely well, kindly and unobtrusively, and was made to feel...

Stunning views from our top floor room. A selfservice kitchen. Easy access to all of Molyvos. Lovely vine covered neighborhood with friendly shop keepers. Jorgos and his Mother are sincerely caring people who went out of their way on several occasions to help us out. All at a cost that, to me, seemed astonishingly affordable. We will look forward to...

This is the best hotel in Molyvos, in the historical center of the village next to the markets, 250 meters from the beach, with the BEST view, peaceful and clean. I really felt like home. Everything was great!!!

We had a very nice stay at The Schoolmistress. We rented a room on the top floor which had an absolutely stunning sea view. The location on Kastro Street is very picturesque and central, and in the heat of the summer you really appreciate the fact you're staying on the one totally shaded street in Molyvos. While it looks inaccessible...

It was a good stay here. The room was rather humble and had all the expected amenities. The manager was welcoming and approachable. He suggested a nice place for a meal. The view is magnificent!! It is located up a cobblestone street up a hill. Note: If the locals say it is okay to drive up, it is a bit...

We stayed there for a few days with friends. The pension is quiet although in the middle of Molivos, next to the bakery and to a small market. The rooms were very clean and the view from the upper rooms breathtaking! The price of the room was also very reasonable! The service at the reception was great! Thank you George!...

Really pleasant and appreciated experience, in all respects ... location, management, cost, room, facilities, wifi, proximity to amenities ... and probably more. The Manager was friendly, helpful and a great resource for assisting with relevant tourist-type inquiries. The accommodation was very nicely and conveniently situated in a popular shopping and dining precinct of the delightful town ... literally right outside...

The Shoolmistress With The Golden Eyes is one of the most unique places in Greece I've ever stayed, with one of the most breathtaking views on the island. I would highly recommend this place to any visitors to Molyvos. It is centrally located in the most beautiful village in Lesvos, within the castle fortress. You go back in time as...
