Where to stay near Meteora in Greece. Choose from these best 5 hotels in Kalambaka and Kastraki

Where to stay in Meteora Greece

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 three times now, I would say that spending 2 or even 3 days in the Meteora area is ideal if you are exploring mainland Greece on a road trip.

As you can't stay in the monasteries themselves, the best places to stay near Meteora are the nearby villages of Kalambaka and Kastraki. 

Both villages have great hotels and other accommodation to choose from!

Kalambaka and Kastraki near Meteora

The villages of Kalambaka and Kastraki are the best places to stay near Meteora due to their close proximity to the monasteries.

Kastraki is closer to the monasteries and park, and is a smaller, and perhaps more charming place to stay. It's really like a traditional village.

Kalambaka is a larger town, with more infrastructure and modern accommodation. As such there are more Kalambaka hotels than hotels in Kastraki.


Meteora Where To Stay

The majority of the hotels in Kalambaka and Kastraki are smaller, family-run places, although there are a couple of local Greek chain hotels among them.

Both villages have a range of accommodation to suit all budgets, and I've included something for everyone.

I've also linked to Booking 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.

Top Kalambaka Hotels in Meteora Greece

Divani Meteora Hotel in Kalambaka

The Divani Meteora Hotel is located in the village of Kalambaka, and is classed as 4-5 star hotel. 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! A very comfortable place to stay for a night or two.

Kosta Famissi Hotel in Kalambaka

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.

Opposite, there is another hotel with almost the same name. I didn't want to ask if it belonged to the same family, just in case they had fallen out at some time in the past!

  1. Dave—- you are the best! Thanks so much for all of your help, safe travels, advice, patience, humor, recommendations, etc.!


  2. Thank you ever so much Dave!
    I truly find your tips and style of writing the very best that I have seen!!
    Super appreciate your travel pages!!

    I was just wondering, we are coming o Greece for my 60th in Sept. 2023 and will be landing in Athens. My husband and I would like to visit Delphi and Meteora and was wondering if it is easier to go to Meteora first by train? Is it difficult to book this from Athens? Also, can we then go from Meteora to Delphi? We would like to stay in Delphi for two or there nights and then will be heading to Naxos for a week.
    In Gratitude for your advice and time and energy.

    • Hi Natalie,

      You can go directly from Athens by train to Meteora so that part is easy!
      The Greek train website is not very pretty, but you can check tickets here: https://tickets.hellenictrain.gr/dromologia/
      (Note tickets for September travel may or may not be available right now).
      Meteora is worth spending more than one night in if you have time
      Getting by train from Meteora to Delphi is not worth the hassle as it involves changes of trains, taxis and other inconveniences.
      A bus is better – but may not leave every day of the week. Check timetables here: Ktel-Trikala
      Note on the buses – I am not sure if you stay on the bus or have to change buses (I’d like to think you stay in it). Timetables for KTEL companies may be wildly out of date – best to send them an email to confirm their travel times and schedules.
