We have been again for holidays in Skopelos island and of course to Stafylos Suites!!!! Everything was better than the last time we have been there. The people who are working there are very friendly, the breakfast was much better that the last time and they have made it much more beautifull than before!!!! Definately recomended the Stafylos Suites!!!! ~from Laura A, Βerlin, Germany. Stayed in September 2017, travelled as a couple.

Meine Tochter und ich waren zwei Wochen in diesem besonders netten kleinen Hotel, das mit viel Liebe ausgestattet und gestaltet ist. Wir hatten ein Appartement mit einem Schlafzimmer und Küchenbereich, Balkon mit Meerblick – wunderbar. Das Bad ist recht klein, aber ausreichend. Ich war ja in den letzten Jahren durchaus in so einigen 4- und 5-Sterne-Bunkern, aber ich habe mich noch nie so wohl in einem Hotel gefühlt! Ein herzlicher Dank an all die wunderbaren Menschen, die uns da willkommen geheißen haben! ~von Egal, Nürnberg. September 2017.

The location was absolutely fantastic, had a beautiful view, the room was cosy and the pool perfect. You can see the sea from the balcony. So, it was clean, quite and comfortable. Best vacation! (Thanks Georgios, Daniel’s friends) ~from Dorina Maria, Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Stayed in July 2017.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Stafylos Suites & Boutique Hotel (Ostria Hotel). The hotel is exactly how it looks on the photos, it really is beautiful. All the staff were very welcoming and attentive, especially Regina, Angel and Max. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

The rooms in the hotel were very nice, spacious, clean and comfortable, and very well equipped with kettle, coffee maker, iron, toast maker, oven, fridge/ freezer, hair dryer etc. I think all have balconies and most with sea and pool view. They had a problem with the water main supply for a few hours on a couple of days whilst we were there, which couldn’t be helped. So they provided us with bottles of water totally 18 litres, which we didn’t really need but it lasted us all week anyway.

The only slight negative about the hotel is the breakfast and the bar food isn’t the best with limited choice. However it didn’t really matter as there are three taverna’s very near by, the one we went to down the hill was lovely. The hotel also provides a free bus service into Skopelos town each night, and they pick you up to bring you back at 22:30.

The location of the hotel is ideal, it’s a short walk down the hill to Stafylos beach, a short drive onto Skopelos town which has a huge choice of restaurants and bars. There is a bus stop just down the road, which takes you into Skopelos town or to the other beaches not too far away. We really liked Limnonari beach, best to drive here though as its a decent walk from where the bus drops you. Skopelos is stunning and we would definitely return.

However you have to be careful with the ferries and try and book in advance, not many run through the day and ours was cancelled at last minute which cause mayhem on our last day trying to sort another. My advice would be to travel back to Skiathos the day before your flight and stay in Skiathos for a night to avoid disappointment. ~from Ted & Clare Tangles, North East UK. Stayed in July 2017.

Great hotel with good and quiet atmosphere… It is clean and tidy, and has a tasteful interior! Nice surroundings and friendly and helpful staff! Very close to the beautiful Stafylos beach! Bus stop just outside the door, plus possibility to go to Skopelos town with shuffle from the hotel. The closest restaurant (3 minutes walk) serves delicious home made Greek meals. A evening drink in the bar at the hotel gives you the perfect relaxing end of the day! We loved it all! ~from Sirimoro, Grimstad, Norway. Stayed in June 2017, travelled with family.

Stafylos is the first beach in Skopelos island about 4 km from the town. Stafylos beach is very nice, very clean, with a small beach bar and after that is also one more beach called Velanio. In Stafylos there are three restaurants with nice food. We stayed in the brand new renovated Stafylos Suites-Ostria Hotel. This hotel is very clean, with lovely view, nice and big rooms and the beds are the best we have ever slept!!!! Definately we will come back in the future! ~by Lazarovbg, Sofia, Bulgaria. Stayed in September 2016, travelled as a couple.

We stay at this hotel for one week. We were very satisfied. The staff was very helpful, especially the lady called Regina. Many times she offered us a lot of extra during our stay there. The rooms are very clean and with very nice decoration. The swimming pool excellent, with a very nice bar. The location is perfect, only 5 minutes with car from the city and just a minute from 2 of the most popular beaches on island. But the view……UNIQUE. ~by Stelios Fikos, Athens, Greece.

  • + Dass von uns gebuchte Studio mit Meerblick erfüllte unsere Erwartungen und auch den angepriesenen Komfort lt. Beschreibung in vollsten Umfang.
  • + Das getrennte Schlafzimmer inkl. eigenen Ausgang auf den terrassenähnlichen Balkon (ca. 25m2) mit 2 Liegen und Essgarnitur ( 6 Personen) vollendete den herrlichen Meerblick.
  • + Die angegebene Vollausstattung der Küche beinhaltete alle Untersilien; Wasserkocher, Filterkaffeemaschine und großräumigen Kühlschrank inkl. Gefrierfach.
  • + Inkludiert sind ebenso 2 Klimageräte (kalt/warm) sowie eine Vielzahl von Kästen.
  • + Als Tipp von uns: sollte eine Zimmerbelegung im Obergeschoss erfolgen, wäre von Vorteil, zuerst einchecken und anschließend sein Gepäck durch den rückwärtigen Zugang fast barrierefrei hineinrollen.
  • + In unmittelbarer Nähe befindet sich eine familienbetriebene Taverne.
  • – Ohne motorbetriebenen Untersatz sollte man ein langjährig trainierter Wandersgeselle sein und mit ausreichender Stückzahl von Schuhwerk anreisen.
  • – Das Vorhandensein von Warmwasser im Duschbereich ist leider von der Verbrauchsmenge der Mitbewohner abhängig.
  • – Die Handbrausewandmontage ist leider nur für kleinwüchsige (110 cm) Personen optimal nützbar.

~von Heinz, Austria. September 2016.

Ostria Hotel-Stafylos Suites (the new name as they have been told us) is one fully renovated boutique hotel, with very nice, lovely view of the Aegean Sea and Evoia. Every day the room was very clean, in the beds you make very comfortable sleep, and the stuff is very polite and smiles all the time!!!! They give you very good suggestions where to go for swimming and etc. Regina and George thank you for every thing and hope to see you in the future! Room Tip: Choose the superior suites. ~by Louisa Chloou, Manchester, United Kingdom. Stayed in September 2016, travelled as a couple.

We had great stay in a studio of Stafylos Suites, formerly known as Ostria hotel. We were with 2 adults and our son of 12. The studio has a lot of cupboard space, we had no dining table (not enough space). There is an equiped kitchenette and we even had a toast maker, did not see a microwave, but I am sure that they can organize this for families with babies. And the staff is extremely helpful. We had an iron board and hairdryer, standard in our room. Lovely firm shower, a hook to hang it on the wall while showering would be convinent. Very comfortabele beds! Very clean too, serviced every, very good.

Outside beautiful swimming pool, plus very large lounge area and lounge music. Only a very few guests were hanging out here, which we thought is a pity. At the entrance of the building is another outside lounge area, beautiful decorated, with Voile curtains waiving in the wind but again hardly any people there. Stafylos Suites Hotel was fully booked though.

All guests have different expectations, but we would have liked the opportunity to mingle with other guests. Possibly a Happy Hour at the bar? Some bits & bites at the pool bar would also be welcome as the nearest supermarket is 4km away and we unfortunately could not get hold of a rental car. The public bus (luxurious with aircon!) that stops at the hotel was a good solution, runs roughly once an hour during peak (beach) hours and stops at all the mayor beaches on west coast. We will defenitely go here again and than prebook our rental car :-) ~by GoSouthAfrica, Aalsmeer.

Hotel molto carino, dotato di tutto quello che serve: piscina, Wi-Fi, bar, reception molto disponibile e sempre pronta ad ogni richiesta. Posizione a 4 km dalla città di Skopelos e vicini alla bella spiaggia di Stafilos. La camera (la suite)era molto spaziosa e divisa in due camere, pulita, dotata di cucina, terrazza molto spaziosa vista mare. Hanno 2 stelle penso perché manca l’ascensore… ma senz’altro ho visto dei 3 o 4 stelle con strutture che non possono nemmeno essere paragonate a questo hotel. Bitta35, Zero Branco, Italia. Ha soggiornato in Agosto 2016, viaggiato in coppia.

  • + Location e comfort della struttura eccellente.
  • + Staff cordiale soprattutto per i preziosi consigli su spiagge e ristoranti.
  • – L’orario della bella piscina.

This hotel is about 4 km out of Skopelos town; whilst there is a regular bus service and quick taxi service (€7 each way) a hire car is recommended if you are planning regular visits to the town or other beaches. The hotel has been completely refurbished and as regular visitors to Greece this is the best place we’ve stayed in. It’s a totally relaxed with great rooms (air con and safe included) with fantastic views of the sea and on most days we had exclusive use of the pool and sun beds – no getting up at 6am to save a sun bed! The staff are great and in particular Regina on the reception desk was really helpful in recommending restaurants and taxis. Great place to stay. ~by Mark538102, Bristol, United Kingdom.

Wir blieben 5 Tage auf Skopelos während einer Inselhopping-Tour. Diese 5 Tage durften wir im Hotel Ostria verbringen. Wir hatten ein Zimmer mit Meerblick. Alles ist sehr sauber, das Personal ist super freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Zimmer werden jeden Tag gereinigt, jeden 2. Tag gibt es neue Bettwäsche und Handtücher. Wir können dieses Hotel nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen. Eins noch, das Hotel ist ausgezeichnet worden für die Matratzenqualität. Hier hat man auch einen fantastischen Schlaf!

Zu Skopelos selbst, eine ruhige Insel mit wenig Trubel und Verkehr. Wir haben uns einen Roller ausgeliehen und so die Insel erkundigt. Neben Strandbesuchen (meist Kiesstrand aber mit wirklich kristalklarem Wasser!) haben wir uns Skopelos-Stadt und die kleinen netten griechischen Dörfer und Restaurants angesehen. Alles sehr traditionell und lecker. Wer also einen erholsamen Urlaub sucht, ist hier sicherlich genau richtig! Zimmertipp: Suite oben links, Raum 305. ~von Oelmannmichael, Köln, Deutschland. Aufenthalt Juli 2016, Paar.

Dette er et bra hotell og kan anbefales på alle måter.

  • Alt er nyoppusset, hotellet var visst stengt i 3 år for oppussing og det synes.
  • Rommet vårt (201) var pent oppusset, praktisk innredet og rent.
  • Vennlig betjening og ekstra imøtekommende.
  • Få minutter til to av de vakreste strendene på øya.


  • Kjedelig frokost. Det skal ikke så mye energi til fra hotellet for at dette skal bli bedre.
  • Selvom hotellet er godt dekket opp med Wifi, opplevde vi det svært ustabilt de 12 dagene vi var her. Heldigvis var det god 4G dekning, selv inne på rommet.

Vi kommer gjerne tilbake til dette hotellet. Hit kan dere trygt reise. ;-) ~fra Vetle K, Norge. Bodde juli 2016, reiste med familie.

J ai séjourné en juin 2016. Accueil chaleureux. Hotel très calme. Refait à neuf. Chambre spacieuse très propre. Un séjour très reposant. A 200 mètres à pied de la plage de Stafylos…. Merci. Par contre il faut mieux être motorisé pour découvrir l’île. ~de Guy92sud, Paris, France. Juin 2016.

Extrem sauber, Personal sehr bemüht, gut ausgestattet, nach meiner Meinung 3 1/2 bis 4 Sterne. Man hat ca 500 m bis zu einer schönen Badebucht, wo ein Restaurant in der Nähe ist (haben beim Abendessen Delfine gesehen). Hotelzimmer ist für die Klasse ungewöhnlich gut ausgestattet: sehr gute Betten, Bad mit einer gemauerten Dusche, Safe im Zimmer, Küchenzeile komplett, schöner Balkon, mit verstellbaren Holzmöbeln. Zimmertipp: Wir hatten eine Küchenzeile, auf jeden Fall Meerblick nehmen. ~von Woladues, Walsrode, Deutschland. Aufenthalt Mai 2016, Paar.

Wir hatten die obere Suite mit herrlichem Blick genießen können. gleich am 1. Morgen wurden wir mit der griechischen Morgenröte geweckt und gingen mit dem goldenen Vollmond vor dem Fenster ins Bett. Hervorragender Service, nettes Personal, 100%ig sauber, alles in Top-Zustand. Es waren noch nur wenige Gäste dar, aber der Aufenthalt zum Frühstück vorm Pool mit Blick aufs Meer ist umwerfend. Das Marmortreppenhaus ist etwas hellhörig. Zwei traumhafte Strände (einer auch für nahtlose Bräune) nur wenige 100 m entfernt. Alles in allem sehr empfehlenswert. Die gezeigten Bilder auf der Webseite sind real!!!  Zimmertipp: Suiten, alle Zimmer haben Süd-West oder Ost-Süd Ausrichtung. ~von Poena1, Köln, Deutschland. Aufenthalt Mai 2016, Paar.

Everything is NEW and clean, big bathrooms, nice furniture, big balconies and anatomic beds… Very polite stuff and owners. Stuning view from the balconies and from the pool. And a big variety of nice plants all over the hotel area… Hopefully I can come back for more days!!! See you again in the future!!! ~by Laoura A, Berlin, Germany. Stayed in October 2015.

Upon arriving late evening at this property, we were warmly welcomed by Olga and shown to our accomodation. This had been upgraded from a studio to a beautiful one bedroom suite with a very large balcony overlooking the pool and sea beyond. This hotel has recently been refurbished, and was certainly NOT a 2 star, more a 4 star. It was not, however, without minor problems in terms of some of the fixtures and fittings not being as robust as one would expect in somewhere so new, but hey, this is Greece! We had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing stay here. The staff cannot do enough for you, and Olga in particular was so helpful throughout our entire stay organising car rental, taxis, and recommending places to eat etc.

During the day, the pool was lovely and quiet to relax around, and the beach at Stafylos is one of the best on Skopelos (although the walk back to the Ostria is not for the faint hearted with it’s steep climb! Why not stop at the beach Taverna with it’s stunning views for a beer on the way back?). There are a few Tavernas within walking distance of the Hotel, and local bus to take you to Skopelos Town, but no supermarket. We would recommend a car rental for a few days to enable you to see the rest of the islands breathtaking coastline. Definitely a place to return to. Thank you Ostria for a lovely stay. Room Tip: Top floors have best views, particularly the one bedroom apartments. ~by Sunshinelover40, Bishops Stortford, United Kingdom.

Consigliatissimo. Camere confortevoli con arredi nuovissimi. Pulizie giornaliere molto accurate. Staff molto disponibile e cordiale. Situato in posizione comoda per raggiungere le spiagge dell’isola e a soli cinque minuti di auto dal centro abitato di Skopelos. Inoltre fermata bus a pochi metri. Bellissima spiaggia di Stafilos raggiungibile a piedi in pochi minuti. ~Gianluca577, Roma, Italia. Luglio 2015.
