Take a look at the best places to stay near Meteora in Greece. The top 5 hotels in Kalambaka and Kastraki.
Best Places To Stay Near Meteora
Although Meteora can be reached when taking day trips from Athens, this UNESCO World Heritage Site deserves as much time as you can give it. After visiting Meteora twice now, I would say that spending 2 or even 3 days there is ideal. As you can’t stay in the monasteries themselves, the best places to stay near Meteora are the nearby villages of Kalambaka and Kastraki.
Top 5 Hotels in Kalambaka and Kastraki
The villages of Kalambaka and Kastraki are the best places to stay near Meteora due to their close proximity. Kastraki is a smaller, and perhaps more charming place to stay. Kalambaka is a larger town, with more infrastructure. They both have a range of accommodation to suit all budgets, and I’ve included something for everyone. I’ve also linked to Hotels Combined, which helps you get the best price for booking a hotel near Meteora. Here are my suggestions for the top 5 hotels in Kalambaka and Kastraki.
Meteora Hotel in Kastraki
A luxury 4-5 star hotel in the village of Kastraki, the Meteora Hotel is an ideal place to be based. With a swimming pool and stylish touches it is instantly appealing, but really, it’s the views which make this place a winner.
Divani Meteora Hotel
This place has a similar name to the first hotel, and is also a 4-5 star establishment. The Divani Meteora Hotel is located in the village of Kalambaka, and whilst it doesn’t have a swimming pool, it does have an in-house spa. The sauna and Jacuzzi might be useful after a day spent sightseeing around the monasteries of Meteora!
Kosta Famissi Hotel
If you can get by the rather garish and kitsch front entrance, you will find that this hotel in Kalambaka offers pretty good value for money. It’s a 3 star place with around 50 rooms, so you should find a place to stay even in the very busiest times of year.
The Monastiri Guesthouse gets consistently good reviews, making it one of the best places to stay near Meteora. It has a cosy, intimate feel to it, and the hosts seem to make everyone feel at home. This is a good choice of hotel for couples, especially if they are on a honeymoon in Greece!
Dellas Boutique Hotel
My final choice for one of the best places to stay near Meteora, is the Dellas Boutique Hotel in Kastraki. It is a 3 star hotel, but probably deserves 4. It has a cosy feel to it, with the feel of a modern, elegant mountain lodge. There is both a bar and dining room in the hotel, making it a good place to stay for people who want all the facilities in one hotel.
