Great views of Meteora, but some inconveniences!

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 Aug 2021
Stayed in Room 301, a Triple Room.

PROS: The hotel has a convenient location on the east side of the main street. The staff member who checked us in was very helpful in orienting us with how to get between the different monasteries. From our room, we had amazing views of St. Stephen’s Monastery! The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The elevator was spacious as well. The hotel offers breakfast for €5 per person, which we did not try.

CONS: The wifi was horrible in the room and lobby. In fact, we frequently walked five doors down the block to Cafe Briki in order to send an iMessage or check email. The refrigerator did not work, and when we informed the front desk, the woman said there was nothing they could do about it. The air conditioning was quite weak. In the bathroom, there was no mounted shower head holder so it was impossible to rinse your hair with both hands.

We decided to book here after the hotel we had originally chosen cancelled our reservations. Because we were one of few guests, we were given an excellent, modern room with a balcony directly looking at the Meteora cliffs. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Charlies at reception made us an appointment for a PCR test in Kalambaka (since we wouldn't have had time to do the test at Athens airport), and also offered us advise about the monasteries and town. Good breakfast and Wi-Fi.

This hotel is promoted as a four stars hotel but it gives you the impression that is lower. We stayed there for two nights as a big group with children. The decoration is something your either love or hate using ancient Greek style statues etc Some rooms had roll-away beds even for adults while others had regular beds. The doors still have locks with keys and not electronic locks. Our room had a cracked sink (not leaking) and the bathroom door case had damages from the shower water. Breakfast had limited options but it was adequate. Staff during first night's dinner tried to cope with all the people and so it wasn't so friendly. Location of the hotel is very good, being on the central Kalampaka road.

The Kosta Famissi Hotel is a "pleasant" choice to visit Kalambaka, offering some facilities like any 3-star hotel in Greece ..., the hotel rooms offer air conditioning and a fridge, and the online access is easy, with free but weak WiFi and many interruptions .... the rooms are small unsightly and the walls require more care ... compared to the outside appearance and the reception ... they can say that the proverb can be applied: "outside painted the fence and inside. .. "so ... leave it to be desired ...
The bathroom is small and the facilities "facilities" for 3 stars ... poorly positioned ...
breakfast is quite varied ... maybe fruit improvements wouldn't ruin it ...

Room tip: ...or where the rooms are noisy ...

Ideally situated for visiting the Monasteries on the Meteora rocks the hotel Famissi was an ideal choice. Rooms were very spacious and well appointed. Nice bathroom. Balcony. Staff very friendly. On a very interesting street with lots of little bars, restaurants and shops. A good stay.

We spent 1 night in this hotel, very clean, the parking is very close to the hotel. The breakfast is great and rich. There is an A/C in the room, TV and a little refrigerator. The location is also good, a few minutes from the center.
