The location of this hotel is perfect,being less than a 5 minute walk from the harbour. You enter through a small court yard filled with flowers & plants,you get a wonderful sense of peace,like you were entering a cocoon. The bedrooms are big and comfortable with a small kitchenette,all spotlessly clean.We loved our 3 nights stay here & it was...

I highly recommend Phaedra Hotel. Our room was very comfortable and we had plenty of space. Nicely decorated - understated and lovely. A plentiful breakfast was served to us at our own table outside our room in a little courtyard. Hilda, the owner, is very helpful, even arranging to have a taxi ready to pick us up when we returned...

Our charming room has a balcony with an oblique view of the sea is one of the nicest rooms we have found in Greece. The room is bright and light, simply furnished with a wooden floor and windows on three sides with a pretty wrought iron balcony from which there is a magnificent view over the rooftops to the mountain...

Stayed three nights in Phaedra having booked via booking.com, €140 per night, B&B. Breakfast was delicious - just enough. Nice coffee and fresh fruit + cakes and bread. However accommodation lacked somewhat. Little storage, tired looking, on the ground floor and dingy. A premium price for a not so premium room! Apparently this is the room made available on booking.com...

I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Hydra. It is a perfect location, just far enough away from the harbor to get away from the crowds and to feel like you are part of the local culture without having to hike to far up the hill! We stayed in the Phardra room and was huge for European standards....

Phaedra is well located in beautiful lanes of Hydra Town. Hotel rooms, are excellent. The owner, Hilda, is welcoming and helpful. She really took care of us; offering tips on where to go and what to do. Ideal holiday for our family of 4. Thank you.

Stayed in Athena & Artemis room(s) - which is basically 2 rooms with a door in between. One of the rooms has a private (and good size) roof top terrace, perfect for observing light and sound change as the island wake up or fall asleep. in room wifi drops once in awhile then reconnects immediately. It's not a big deal,...

Really friendly and warm hosts. Could not recommend this place highly enough. Very nice room close enough to the port for easy access and far enough away for some peace and quiet. Very nice breakfast on the terrace, a great way to start the day.
