“Comfort, Class and Top Notch Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Aetoma Hotel for three days while using Nafplion as a base for exploring Corinth, Mycenae and Epidavrus. When we arrived, we were greeted by an amazing staff that assisted us in finding a nearby parking space by returning to the port to retrieve our car and then riding back to the hotel with us. Then the owner gave us his own parking space! This was amazing and a nice touch given the small roads to the interior of the Old City can be confusing and difficult to find parking. After a lovely introduction to our room and an explanation of the city of Nafplion, my husband and I were served with cakes and hot drinks and allowed to simply enjoy the lovely accomodations.
Our room was equipped with all the conveniences you could imagine and had what I can only describe as the fanciest shower I have ever seen (four jets, shower head and mobile shower head - wow)! Yet, since the hotel is a converted home from the 17th Century (I believe this is accurate) you can almost imagine yourself living and breathing in a bygone era. The room had a lovely balcony overlooking an easy going street and the bathroom window looked out directly to the Palamidi Fortress - excellent! The room itself was beautiful - shades of gold, burgundy and dark cherry, with a nice flat panel TV and a hidden refrigerator in the entertainment center. Classy decor with all the touches of modernity we have come to expect. The bed was the most comfortable we slept in during our stay in Greece and definately one of the nicest we've slept in while on our many travels.

Breakfast was OVERWHELMINGLY great! Hot baked breads, delicious Greek yogurt and marmalades, omelettes, bacon, cake, coffee, tea, freshly squeezed juice - a feast! My husband and I filled up on breakfast and were able to plow through our days without another bite to eat until some very late dinners. I don't think I've ever had breakfast at any hotel, inn or B&B that was as good as those we had at Aetoma.

The owner gave us some great tips on area restaurants, including 360, a very swank wine bar that my husband and I really enjoyed. Good Tip!

The second day of our stay we came home from a long day of exploring to find a complimentary bottle of wine waiting for us - lovely!

On our last night in Nafplio we needed to make arrangements for an early check out. We were able to arrange an early breakfast and pay that evening rather than having to finish final details in the morning - again, Top Notch Service!

Nafplion, or Nafplio (among many other spellings) is a lovely little sea side town - lots of nice restaurants, shoppes, a couple of nice museums and some great walks. I would suggest splitting up your days between exploring the city, exploring nearby Archeological sites and simply enjoying the comfort of your room (you'll need it with all the walking you'll do)!

Corinth is approximately 1 hour away, Mycenae is 30 minutes, and Epidavrus is about 25 minutes. This hotel makes a great base for exploring these sites.

I would HIGHLY recommend the Aetoma and hope that when my husband and I find ourselves back in Greece we can visit again. A BIG thank you to this hotel and the staff.

My wife and I and our two daughters, aged 9 and 17, are lucky enough to travel a lot and have stayed in many hotels but every now and then one really takes your breath away, and this time it was Aetoma. Beautifully appointed clean rooms with real attention to detail. Panayota, who was born in the room we stayed in, and her son Akis treated us like family. The breakfasts were amazing, all home made, and so plentiful! She even surprised us with a packed lunch the day we left for the airport. Nothing was too much trouble: a lovely experience that we will have to repeat.

My husband and i stayed at the Aetoma hotel at the end of our journey through Greece and was this the perfect end to our holiday.
The Aetoma hotel is a small family run hotel and while actually staying in one of the five beautifully and tastefully decorated rooms we felt like we were part of the family.
The owner pan (who was actually born in the house) was very kind and served the most wonderful breakfast with all home made pastries and marmalades.
The staff Kerry and Pans son Akis were there to always give any information that was required they also welcomed us every afternoon with tea or coffee and home made cakes after our exploring of the wonderful sites in the area

I coud go on forever about this hotel:rooms beautiful and spacious, shower unbeleivable,location central but lovely and peaceful the list goes on and on.

Oh and when we actually arrived at the hotel Pan gave up her parking space for us to park our car,but even on other occassions parking was not difficult there was plentyful of parking at the harbour or even in the nearby streets.

Who ever decides to visit Nafplion Aetoma hotel is the place to stay
Thankyou all at Aetoma

We really loved our stay. Only five rooms, in the house in which the owner was born! Lovingly remodeled with all modern conveniences, yet oozing in charm and ambience. We have stayed in many different hotels in Nauplion over the past four decades, and this is the best yet. The owners are knowledgable about the town. And they are accommodating but not pushy. So often hotel managers in Greece insist on speaking even if their English is dreadful. Here I was politely asked in Greek which language I preferred. Terrific views, good lighting. Great location. We can't see how you can go wrong.

Room Tip: The superior double room on the top floor is worth it. Treat yourself.

We planned our recent trip to Greece using reviews and recommendations from Tripadvisor. And once again, we loved our choices.

Nafplion is a wonderful small city. It's an ideal base for exploring the surrounding environs. Staying at Aetoma was like visiting family - that is, family that you enjoy visiting. The location was ideal, the staff was very welcoming, and the rooms were charming, yet modern. A perfect combination for a small hotel to have.
