We arrived in the Meteora area of Greece which is breath-taking in itself. The hotel facility came up suddenly and we made a sharp turn to enter, there were entrance signs well in advance but to enter the facility it is quite a sudden turn. Parking was close and plentiful. The hotel itself is exquisite in a quiet beautiful setting. Staff was very solicitous and polite. Our room was beutiful and had complimentary fruit and wine from the manager. The room is clean and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was plentiful as was dinner the night before. We paid a nominal fee for dinner but breakfast was included in the cost of the hotel. The hostess at the front desk booked our tour to the monasteries of Meteora, a half-day trip that was well worth the cost. Excellent guides and also a tour of the Theopetra caves. Not to be missed.The hotel allowed us to check out late because of the half day tour. The property is beautifully landscaped and has a seasonal pool. Snack bar inside and full bar available.Furnishings thruout the hotel echo the sacredness of the monastery area, icons and ancient statuary. Another beautiful Amalia property, so peaceful and serene.

I enjoyed my stay at Hotel King. I could see the cliffs of Meteora from my hotel room window. Dan, the proprietor, and his wife are always around to provide information of the area. Since I had shown an interest in hiking up to the monasteries from town, Dan showed me on the map the more preferable trails. He also pointed out some of the trails leading to ruins that were less frequented by tourists.

We are a couple with 3 children and had planed for a long time a trip without the children to celebrate an anniversary. We had booked a 1 night at the Epavlis Boutique Hotel, Kalambaka about a month in advance and guess what... when we arrived the owner/manager told us without any noticed in advance (he had our Mobile numbers) that "unfortunately" he cant host us. Why? - well, the first excuse was a wedding or something like this... and later on he said there are problems with the water or whatever. It doesn't really matter, it was so frustrating... he took us to a different, lower rated "guesthouse" and since we planed to stay in Mateora just for one night we did not had a real chance/time to look for other alternatives.... to summarize - we had an extremely frustrating experience with the Epavlis Boutique Hotel.
The hotel was large and comfortable. The dining area was good for a buffet breakfast lots of choice. The rooms were comfortable and clean. No fridge in room or bath plug to fill the bath up to soak feet after the walking up and down to Meteora.
Very central to all the restaurants and to get the bus back to trikala.
