    Location directions.

    We had a comfortable sleep. Air conditioning appreciated. Quiet location a short walk from Phillip's Tomb Museum. Restaurants nearby. Quiet little town. We loved it! Be sure to take GPS coordinates for this location and any other in Greece as street addresses, in general, are imprecise or inadequate. Locals were friendly and helpful, especially kind to place a call for us when needed (as we did not have a SIM card or international calling plan.)

    For us it was perfect, but most people would find it very quiet there. There are lots of restaurants but all empty in the evenings as the main thing to go there for is the Royal Tombs which, after 8p.m. no other tourists are there. That suited us fine, however!

    The hotel is beautiful and has a very homely feel. Breakfast is served in a large and very comfortable lounge. The hosts speak excellent English and they were exceptionally helpful - providing beautiful books to read about the local history, environment and sights. Breakfast was nice, with some homemade items, although it is not included in the room rate. I knew this so did not mind. Of course, Phillip's Tomb is magnificent and the museum is superb.

    Location is fantastic, close to Phillip's Tomb Museum and other historic sites, many tavernas and souvenir shops around while very quiet. The house is welcoming, very nicely decorated. The apartment is spacious enough and with all necessary amenities. Bathroom a bit too small but very well appointed otherwise. Good bed. Good breakfast. The lady owner not so smiling nad happy-lloking but very courteus, helpful and efficient. Her husband, very joyful and nice. Absolutely reccommended. We would definitely return as there is so much to visit on a 50km radius around Vergina.

    The air-conditioning was dripping on the balcony and the floor there was always wet.

    This is a charming family ran hotel located just minutes away from the ancient Royal Tomb museum in Vergine. The owners are very polite and helpful and at service for anything. We are a couple with two kids (6 year old and a baby) and we stayed here for one night. We were in a triple room that consisted of one double and one single bed (no baby cot was available) and a bathroom. The room was very clean (our baby was crawling all the time while we were inside and never got dirty) and spacious. It has a small balcony with a view over the street. Maria and her husband are very cordial hosts. They've beautifully decorated ground floor with a cozy living room and formal dining area where Maria serves breakfast. Breakfast is ok, not much variable but enough, and it includes delicious homemade pastries that we absolutely recommend!

    I don't review much, but this accommodation deserves my praise. It's located only 2 minutes on foot from the archeological site, it's a really charming place and the staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful. The room was quite big and had a wonderful breakfast (highly recommended!). Great value for money!
