Basic but fine

Review of Hotel Rex
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 28 Aug 2019via mobile
Rooms were fine and clean. Good location for going to see Meteora (though you would need a car or to be part of a tour regardless).Breakfast was fine too. Lobby smelled of smoke constantly which was a downside.

Was booked a night's stay in this hotel through a Meteora tour package. Basic hotel with all the usual amenities, located in the heart of Kalambaka along the Main Street, walking distance from the train station. We requested a room with a view of Meteora but was told that no Meteora facing rooms were available that night due to some maintenance work they were carrying out. Breakfast was a simple affair of coffee, toast, greek yoghurt and some cold cuts, but it did the job.

We did a morning hike on our last morning in Meteora. Since our hike ended past check out timing, we were asked to check out before, which was of no issue to us. On our return, we asked if it was possible for us to use just their showers to freshen up but our request was denied. We wound up spending the rest of the day travelling back to Athens in our post-hike state.

Apart from that slight blight, it was a no frills stay without much to complain about. The front desk staff was very friendly, and we'd highly recommend having a meal at the tavern directly across the street from the hotel.

We stopped over for a couple of nights to visit Meteora. Rooms are comfortable great location right in town opposite a fantastic taverna with greek musicians playing each night and the imposing rocks as the backdrop. The staff gave us some fabulous recommendations for our onward journey like visiting Parga a beautiful coastal town only a few hours on and also metsovo in the pintos mountains and we loved both

Some rooms of this hotel have been renovated. However, we opted for an older room since it wasn't facing the main street and was more quiet. We slept like baby! The rooms are the from offer a view of Meteora and some of them have been renovated. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was tiny and the shower even tinier! Some parts of the room, especially the desk, could have been cleaner, but overall it was clean enough. The buffet breakfast was included and it was perfect to start the day. There are several coffee shops and restaurants close by. The staff at the front desk is nice and helpful.

Room tip: The rooms situated at the back of the hotel are quieter

We stayed at hotel Rex for a night to take the tour of Meteora. When we got here we found out that the tour had already begun because of the magnificent view from the balcony. The hotel was nice, clean and it had everything we needed. It's directly in the middle of everything happening in kalambaka. We enjoyed our stay and we recommend it to everyone. The staff is very helpful for all your needs.
