Booking.com guest review guidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full, as quickly as possible, after being moderated to comply with Booking.com guidelines. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
Once a review has been submitted, you can modify it by contacting Booking.com customer service.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
Guidelines and standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.
By default, reviews are sorted based on the date of the review and on additional criteria to display the most relevant reviews, including but not limited to: your language, reviews with text, and non-anonymous reviews. Additional sorting options may be available (by type of traveller, by score, etc...).

눉Absolutely nothing wrong with it!
눇Charmingly appointed units with comfortable beds, furniture. Every unit has great views of village and mountains. Loved it so much last year, returned again this year. Would love to come in winter to cozy up around the fireplace! Aphrodite is a sweet host. Very romantic place but also nice for the whole family.

눇The studio was just like we had hoped for, with a comfortable bed and beautiful view of the forests and mountains. Aphrodite did everything she could to make us feel at home. The village was nice and quiet with friendly people and a good local taverna. There are plenty of nice hikes in the area. It's a good, less touristic alternative to Dimitsana (which is where we initially wanted to go).

눉The village has only one small grocery store, so I've learned to buy food and drink before I arrive. But this is the natural price of being in a remote unspoiled village.
눇All of the apartments are wonderfully appointed and have the same beautiful view. The air is visibly and strikingly clear. Aphrodite is a wonderful hostess.

눉Everything super. Would like to return!
눇Very spacious rooms. Well kept and very clean. Overall good atmosphere. Lady of the house was very hospitable and lovely. We felt ourselves not as regular tourists but as visiting a good friend. We found the village itself very authentic. As there were no (foreign) tourists during our stay (beginning of July 2017) it was a great experience to have a meal in the restaurant together with the local families.

눉Not a thing wrong.
눇Can't say enough good about this place. It's a super cute, well appointed (almost luxury boutique) in a beautiful mountain village at 3,700 feet. The proprietor, Aphrodite, was super friendly and helpful. The rooms are large; the beds are comfortable; the bathrooms are modern and very clean. It has a well equipped kitchen with dining area and tastefully appointed living room. I'd LOVE to come here for a week, summer or winter! I should also mention the great mountain views.

눉Not that we didnt like it, but the village is a bit issolated, with only two restaurants. But Dimitsana, Vythina and other sites are about 20 minutes driving.
눇Afroditi the owner made us feel like this is our home. We could make our own breakfast with her grocary. We cooked also food for ourselves in the very well equiped kitchen. The place is very beautiful and peaceful. It is close to the vilage center by 8 minutes walk. It is excelent base for the trip.

눇Valtessiniko is a beautiful unspoiled Greek village in the mountains of Peloponnesus visited mostly by Greeks, but the people would love to have you come and stay, even if they struggle a bit to know what you need. There's a small food shop for bread, cheeses and other food items, but it would be wise to bring in any specialty supplies from one of the larger towns or cities nearby, and be prepared for parking in a mountain village that predates cars. Valtessiniko Studios are excellent, as pleasant as anything I’ve had in a lifetime of business travel. My flat was a single bedroom duplex with a beautiful bedroom terrace, and what a view.

눉The booking site indicated hotel was 6.2 miles away from our intended destination, we were actually 15. Rooms were small with uncomfortable beds and a dangerous steep staircasefor my parents to get to the bedroom. We killed 2 scorpions during our one night stay and saw cockroaches by entry door.

눉Nothing bad to say about the property. The village itself is so small that you'll need to bring some groceries if you plan to cook in.
눇Tucked away up in the mountains in a very small residential village, this is a nice retreat and a chance to experience the beauty of the Arcadia region. The host is wonderful - she prepared a great breakfast each morning, including honey from the many local beehives. Nearby hiking to monasteries in the Louisos Gorge was amazing, too.

눉Just a word of warning. Spiral staircase to bedroom would be difficult for some people. And one nitpick - a little bit more cutlery/crockery would be good.
눇Traditional village in fabulous location, which doesn't see many foreigners. We were asked several times how/why we'd come here. Just lucky! The apartment was immaculate, very comfortable, with nice terrace and mountain views. Lots of choice of excellent breakfast provided by Afrodit and helper and a very sociable atmosphere with other guests. We really would love to have stayed longer. So glad we ended up here instead of the rather more popular/commercial villages.
