At the end of the cobblestone high street that runs through the castle of Monemvasia, and about 300 metres from the castle’s only gate, is to be found the traditional Malvasia Hotel. Built in an enchanting location, it gazes towards the open horizon and the boundless sea. The view is magical. The hotel’s stunning terraces, with their views of the splendid azure of the sea and the majestic rock of Monemvasia, are perfect for endless hours of daydreaming. The traditional Malvasia Hotel, one of the castle’s first lodgings, has 15 rooms and apartments, all of which reflect the special atmosphere of the dwelling, rather than the impersonal feel of a hotel. The hotel also offers a living room, breakfast room, and a very popular bar with a spectacular sea view.The mansion, today featuring 5 apartments, is one of the oldest buildings within the castle of Monemvasia, and is known to have belonged to the town’s important Stellaki family as early as the 18th century. The mansion’s position is unique. It stands above the sea wall among the battlements, gazing out over the endless open sea. Its stone-built parapet balcony rests on the fortress walls and merges with the sea lapping at the rocks below. In times past, the locals used to proudly boast that King George of Greece had stayed at the Stellaki mansion.

This is a charming hotel in the romantic village of Monemavasia. I strongly recommend staying a night in Monemvasia if at all possible. Accessing the hotel (or any property) in the town is most enjoyable if you don't have much luggage to schlep around, as there is no parking

My girlfriend and I stayed here recently and it was a fantastic experience! Check in was smooth, our room was stunning, and breakfast was one of the best we had in Greece. The woman who checked us in was very helpful, and the ambience of this place is very special. If you want

We stayed at Stellaki mansion for three days. The room was fantastic right in front of Malvasia's walls. The hospitality was very warm. Very good breakfast with a variety of regional flavours. In generak it was very relaxing. Wish we could stay more.

Monemvassia is an island and it’s a true get-away. You can stay in a hotel on a town on the mainland for less money, but if you can afford it, stay on the island. The hotel has several grades of rooms, but when I saw the choices, I decided to upgrade and I’m very glad I did. It

Is there anywhere to swim nearby, we love a swim before breakfast.
Definitely - walk from the hotel down through the town to a gate in the city wall opening up on the sea. Easy access to the sea, takes 5 - 10 minutes. (No beach). No fresh water swimming pool, but the sea is better.

Bonjour, peut on garer son véhicule à proximité ? Merci
On peut accéder à la "presqu'île" en voiture, mais on doit se garer le long de la route menant à l'entrée du site. Si vous voyagez en famille, vous pouvez laisser vos passagers (et bagages) à l'entrée du château et redescendre pour trouver un stationnement. Il faut prévoir 10-15 minutes de marche pour remonter jusqu'à l'entrée. Mais je suis d'accord avec le commentaire précédent que l'hôtel (et le site) vaut définitivement l'effort!

"The apartments are stunning. But breakfast is a 10 min walk away!"
"best views"
"The best room is the Stelaki mansion, I think. It offers a terrace overlooking the sea, with unobstructed views."
"We were on the first floor above the cafe and it was still very quiet so it seems like all rooms are great!"
"We loved Room 10 - the Superior Suite - large, comfortable with great views to the sea. Note shared balcony."
