Most Booked Hotels In Greece

Each November, I look at some of the statistics on this website in order to work out better ways to help readers plan their trips to Greece.

One way of doing this, is by looking to see what are the most commonly booked hotels in Greece through the blog.

Sometimes, I find surprising results. For example people booking hotels on Greek islands I haven't even visited myself yet!

Other times, some of the hotel bookings make total sense. A great example of this is when readers are looking for hotels near Athens airport.

Sofitel Athens Airport – The first choice for anyone looking for an Athens Airport Hotel as it is the only one within walking distance of the airport.

Popular Hotels in Rafina, Greece

Not all ferries leave from Piraeus, as some of the closer Cyclades islands to Athens have ferry connections with Rafina Port. Some readers book a hotel in Rafina as an option depending on their ferry schedule.

Avra Hotel – A useful hotel for anyone taking an early ferry from Rafina or arriving late. It may also serve as an Athens Airport hotel, but check they still offer a shuttle service before booking else you'll need a taxi.

Popular Hotels in Santorini, Greece

Oia and Fira are the two most popular places to stay in Santorini with my readers. Personally, I think Fira is better for people staying more than a couple of nights and especially in the off-season. It seems though that more readers booked hotels in Oia than Fira.

Popular Hotels in Kalambaka (Meteora), Greece

While Meteora can be visited from Athens on a day trip, it doesn't allow for much actual sightseeing time. Many of my readers prefer to stay a night or even two in Kalambaka, the nearby town, where they can then explore the landscape and monasteries of Meteora.

Popular Hotels in Paros, Greece

Parikia is the most popular area for my readers to book a hotel in Paros. That's because a lot of my readers are greek island hopping rather than staying in one place for too long. As such, Parikia makes an excellent location to be based, and there's plenty of accommodation to choose from.
