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.
