Hotels in Greece

Hotels in Greece vary in price depending on the location and the season with rates spiking at Easter and in the high season of July and August. While they are slowly introducing a star rating system, most hotels are categorized under a letter grade – L standing for luxury and the rest denoted from A-E. However, it should be noted that the letter doesn’t always reflect the quality of the accommodation with many C listed hotels surpassing their B counterparts in terms of cleanliness and comfort.

For a low budget alternative to Greece Hotels check for signs indicating a “Room for Rent”. These can range from a spare bed in someone’s house to relatively upmarket facilities with en-suite bathrooms. Renting a luxurious villa is a cheaper alternative to staying in the best hotels in Greece for those travelers spending a significant length of time in one place.

Whether staying on the islands, a remote village or big city there are hotels in Greece for every pocket and preference.

A modern newcomer with cube-shaped rooms near Karavostasi port.

Set foot on the warm black sands of Vlychada Beach and you’ll see why Santorini, an island formed by underwater calderas, is a favorite Greek island getaway. But escaping the summer crowds is no easy feat.

The best views are of the 76 rooms themselves at this witty and whimsical graffiti-artist-decorated boutique hotel.

Opening amid the challenges of the 2009 Greek financial crisis proved to be a boon for the Diamond Deluxe hotel, which became an immediate hit among travelers with a taste for luxury and a weakness for upscale kitsch.

At Fresh Hotel, color is key: hot pinks, neon oranges, and cherry reds pop up everywhere, from the check-in desk to the bedside vases. The hotel’s 133 rooms follow the standard minimalist guidelines—plastic furniture, Eames chairs, and Artemide bedside lighting.

The Argentikon is not a typical unadorned, whitewashed Mediterranean villa.
