Hotels in Greece

Near Mykonos’ iconic windmills on the west coast, this hilltop hotel maintains 22 whiter-than-white rooms and suites across five villas accented with light touches of pastel fabrics, wrought-iron beds, and wood furniture.

Stay in a stone-turreted fortress, once used to fend off Turks, Venetians, and pirates, on the shore of a private bay. Athenians make the 3 1/2-hour drive to this castle by the sea, drawn by the oceanfront pool and unparalleled views of the Mediterranean sunset from the terrace.

The 12-room whitewashed Melenos Lindos is a quiet refuge in the popular town of Lindos, on the Grecian island of Rhodes. Designer Michalis Melenos drew from the area’s mixed artistic heritage—Greek, Byzantine, Arabic, Ottoman—in creating the hotel.

Centrally located beside Omonia Square, the Alassia hotel provides affordable accommodations within walking distance of Plaka (old town) and tourist attractions like the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.

This simple but charming B&B with an excellent location inside the city’s historic walls sits opposite an antiques store and below the Byzantine Museum.

There’s a nautical theme at Anemomilos Apartments, on a cliff with easy access to the village of Hora. Whitewashed walls, private patios, and vistas of the Aegean more than make up for the sparsely decorated rooms. The real draw, however, is the lovely stone-terraced pool and pergola lounge.

Once the home of a sea captain, La Maltese Estate Hotel is now an impeccable six-room Relais & Châteaux boutique hotel in the village of Imerovigli, a quiet area sandwiched between the two main tourist towns of Fira and Oia on Santorini’s steep western edge.

You may think that every square inch of Mykonos has been overdeveloped one way or another, but head to the secluded area of Ftelia at the southern end of Panormos Bay, and you’ll finally find the spacious views of the isle and ocean that the postcards promise.

Neoclassical hotel with 102 individually decorated rooms, in the center of Athens, just off Constitution Square.

This huge complex on a private peninsula jutting out into the Saronic Gulf is a legendary resort (look for its bungalows in classic Greek films of the 1960s) that has had a major makeover in the last few years.
