... a little blob of tomato sauce, then they bought out salad, chicken and veges and watermelon, which I felt wasteful not eating, luckily I was at a table of boys and they cleaned it up for me. We went for a little walk around the hotel at the sun was going down and found these two little buildings which I think they much use as chapels and they lit up while we were there which was really pretty. Everyone hung out outside for a bit since it had cooled down and we went to bed at about ...

We learned a bit about the current political situation in Greece (most resent Germany's control of the European Union and insistence on Greek austerity), the high unemployment in the area (he'd been without a job for over two years), and the hopes for a good outcome for the Greek team in the World Cup. Later, though, Lynn got him to speak about more important long-lasting sentiments regarding the ...

Monastery of Roussanou was the smallest of the three we got to go inside, but I think it was the nicest. It looked the most modern inside, as if they had just renovated it, and the church pictures were so different from anything I’ve seen before. The first room you walked into was all pictures of death and ...

Later on in the day, we went to Vergina to see a museum which turned out to be the Museum of the Royal Tomb. In the tombs were family members of Alexander the Great. There were ornate decorations which filled the tombs. The solid gold boxes made me envious of the lives they ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsDellas Boutique Hotel Kalambaka
Our stay at Dellas was splendid. It was far and away the nicest hotel we stayed in during our nine days in Greece. The rooms are sumptuously appointed with quality linens and furniture, and each room has a large balcony where one can spend her/his time gazing at the incredible Meteora landscape (though not every room has a view of the mountains/karsts). The wifi in the hotel seemed strong and steady and there was plenty of parking in front of the building.
The staff was, without a doubt, exceptional. They truly went above and beyond to ensure that each and every guest felt welcome and valued. Each member was a wealth of information on the area; I am confident our experiences in the area were enhanced by the extra insider bits and pieces they shared with us. Their additional effort was even felt in the decadent breakfast that was laid out with care and happily attended to every morning.
Dellas is located right on the border of Kastraki and Kalambakka, so is quite convenient as both are walkable from it. There are a few restaurants very close to the hotel, and there is also a nice walking path to the old town of Kastraki, making it possible to avoid walking on the busy highway.
