I remembered as soon as I checked in that I stayed there before.... lovely place, nice staff (rare to find in Peloponnese that usually people are rude especially in restaurants - try for instance ALL of them at the seafront)...good breakfast..... every time I need to get ove there I will definitely stay in Pharae...

We loved this hotel. There is a some traffic noise but I do not mind this, air conditioning was quiet, balcony lovely and reception staff very helpful. Bus to town is just nearby and car hire around the corner. Beach with loungers which are free as attached to tavernas, therefore offering beach service of drinks, is a short walk and sea ideal slope for swimming not out of your depth. Wonderful sea view.

The rooms are just gross, to put it plainly. The rugs are old, dirty and stained. The bathroom "shower curtain" could have been replaced---it was a simple, white liner, not even a shower cutrain, and it was stained yellow and brown. The rooms were cleaned, the bathroom was cleaned, however, it never looked cleaned because it was so outdated and used. I understand that it's costly to update a room, but simple things like changing the shower liner would have been a great way to start. The downstairs lobby is nice, but it's not what you get in the room. Also, the sheets are like sandpaper. The only plus, the locataion. We stayed here because it was near family and the person who booked the room didn't know what they were like; she booked it because it was so close. And it was pricey for the room, for what we had--80 Euro a night for what we had above. It was not worth it at all. Spend more money or stay elsewhere because the room was not worth 80 Euro a night at all.

We had no idea which hotel to select because booking.com only gave us a few options on the iPhone and we were already in Kalamata. We chose this one for no specific reason and we were rewarded.

We were given a choice of staying at one of the recently renovated rooms for 98 euros a night, or one of the old rooms on the first floor for 82 euros (prices include breakfast for two). We chose the latter.

With free WORKING wifi in the rooms, spacious rooms and clean beds, I don't know what else I could have asked.
