/ Kalymnos accommodation recommendation please
It would depend on what kind of accommodation you need , whether you will be hiring a scooter or car , if you want to have a swimming pool , breakfast etc. I would recommend something in Armeos . Its quieter than Massouri and closer to much more crags compare to Massouri and Myrties.Saying that Massouri is just round the corner from Armeos.
Am writing this from the balcony of an Aegean Homes apartment in Masouri. Lovely view of Telendos, and super handy for all the bars and restaurants whilst being just off the end of the strip, so peaceful when you want to sleep. Stavros the owner is lovely and helpful, and the rooms are clean and although basic, perfectly good - fridge, coffee machine and wifi, so can't complain as all my needs are met. At E10 per person per night it's excellent value. As the previous poster said though, it's further from the crags than some places, but a good walk/bike warms you up nicely!
Eleni's studios are also decent and simple clean rooms in massouri centre but up on the hill a bit so a bit quieter tha the rooms that are placed just off the main road.you can it through kalymnosbookings.
Just returned from my 3rd visit this morning!
Cannot recommend Hotel Philoxenia highly enough.
It is located at the foot of Grande Grotta, so location could not be more perfect. Cuts out the need for a scooter, as so many crags are walkable from there.
Nikolas (owner) was born and raised in the hotel, so knows everything about the island and the area and can sort out any problems for you. He is also unusually high-tech for a Greek, so has access to web info other proprietors may not.
Views are spectacular both sides and the hotel is clean and cool and has 24 hour hot water (which is actually unusual on Kalymnos).
Only downside is that Wi-Fi is only available in the lobby/bar area, but not in the rooms.
Also - Neil Gresham has been staying there every year for the last ten years, so that says a lot!! :o)
Another recommendation for Tina's studios - stayed there last year, very happy with the accommodation, price and great views.
Thank you all very much.
