The best place to relax and drink a “rakomelo” overlooking the sea. The only thing that was missing was some music. Not very suitable for families due to its ambiance. Better to visit it with daylight.

Hotel Bastione Malvasia is furthest in the unique city of Monemvasia. Our room, number 8, was a tower room with a large balcony and an unparalleled view of Monemvasia and across the sea. The room itself was spacious, comfortable and very beautiful. The nice breakfast was served in a nice breakfast room.
At the hotel's entrance there was a terrace with table and chairs where you could take a frappe or a glass of wine and enjoy beautiful views.
To get to the hotel you have to pull out the bags a fairly long stretch of uneven cobblestone streets. It is an advantage if you do not have that heavy packing and you have easy walking.
At the beginning of September my husband surprised me for our wedding anniversary and took me for three days to the beautiful Monemvasia. We stayed at the Bastione Malvasia, which is a magnificent picturesque hotel.
We stayed in a superior double room with a balcony....a balcony with a million dollar view….the balcony was worth the stay for itself.
The hotel is at the end of the castle. The area is calm, quiet, relaxing…ideal for couples! It has a great café overlooking the sea.
The room is more traditional with a fireplace for the winter and wood all around. It was clean and spacious for the rooms in the area.
Breakfast has not a big variety but includes delicious, traditional food from the area of Mani !
I must point out that the place is made for couples that want to relax, not for families especially with small kids (and I know because I have two!!). The parking is difficult because you leave you car far away and have to walk all the way up. But the castle, its beauty and this lovely hotel deserve all the way up !!!
From the beginning the owner of the hotel made us feel welcome into his palace. It was surreal to be atop the tiled balconies and glistening water with such good service at our fingertips. The concierge was available as we needed it and willing to help us in any way we needed him to. I highly recommend the treatment and the care you'll receive here. The rooms are nothing short of making you feel like you're in a fairytale. Enjoy yourself!
We spent 3 nights at this hotel. It was a unique experience. Our room backed up to the trail that ran around back if lower town.
The hotel is the last one on this island/rock so very private & quiet. Our room had a fantastic view of the sea
The hotel staff was personal & very helpful answering our questions concerning things to see & do plus restaurants
The breakfast was superb each morning with freshly made items.
We would recommend this for singles, couples, & families.
Monemvasia is one of the most unique places I’ve ever been and this hotel just makes the experience more amazing.
Friendly staff, big rooms, UNREAL view over the sea, private cocktail bar, and seating area looking over the town and sea.
Words can’t express how much I loved this place and can’t wait to return
