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.

The history of this three-level island hotel goes back into the 19th century: built in 1895, it belonged to historic Symi Island figures like Vangelitsa, and was remodeled in 2000.
The “art” in the hotel’s name may refer to the hotel’s proximity to the famed National Archaeological Museum or the paintings by Greek artists on the walls of the 30 rooms in this converted 1930 mansion. Rooms combine modern and Neoclassical (e.g., gilt-framed mirrors and contemporary bedding).
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.
Kivotos translates to “ark,” and you’ll know why upon your first glance at the funky, three-story Noah’s Villa at the whitewashed Kivotos Hotel.
