The hotel is small, authentic and totally charming, run by a very caring family. We were looked after by lovely owners and nothing was too much trouble. All very COVID safe too. We had a balcony room that overlooked the beautiful swimming pool and sea beyond, perfect for enjoying a late afternoon sunset drink. The rooms also have have a fridge and kettle for making tea or coffee (although tea or coffee not provided - we had our own tea bags). The ensuite shower is a little on the small side. We arrived 3 days after Storm Ianos which actually was a Hurricaine,unfortunately this had swept over the Ionian islands and Ithaca was affected. The island had no electricity but luckily the hotel had a generator so we were able to have power and Nicki (the owner) was able to cook us a fabulous, tasty meal on our first evening. The hotel is located 8 minutes walk down to Frikes seafront, however the Hurricaine had devastated the tavernas and waterfront here. So sad. We were able to head inland to Stavros and found a couple of tavernas to enjoy our evening meal. Car rental was incredibly easy to arrange from the hotel. We loved this little gem and sincerely hope that Frikes bounces back after the storm damage…
Such a lovely hotel, lovely staff and owners, amazing pool, breakfast and lunch. Great covid restrictions in place. 5 minutes walk to the town. Rooms were so lovely and a very lovely greek style to them.
Several people had recommended Nostos Hotel to me and when I found out that non residents were able to have a drink or meal there, I decided to visit when we stayed in nearby Stavros. When we arrived, we were greeted by Nikki and her husband and we took our drinks on the restaurant terrace overlooking the pool with far reaching views of Frikes. As we were leaving, we mentioned that the hotel had been recommended and asked for some information. The owners then offered to show us one of the rooms which was was spacious and modern and had a balcony overlooking the pool with distant sea views. It was so peaceful and beautiful. The hotel is in a great location, just a 5 minute walk from the small harbourfront which has several restaurants, a bakery and a few shops. Along the Frikes-Kioni coastal road are a series of stunning small, natural beaches which have become my favourite on the island. Nostos is the Greek for ‘homecoming’ and can also mean "Welcome Home" and I can well understand the reason for so many of their repeat guests referring to it as being their ‘home from home’ ... it really is a beautiful little hotel with welcoming, hard working experienced owners in an idyllic location and would definitely love to stay there when we return to Ithaca. …
My return visit to Nostos and the wonderful owners Nicki and Andreas did not disappoint. This small but beautifully appointed hotel is a treasure to be remembered. Nicki can make all the arrangements for travelling to the hotel from Kefalonia with great savings compared with a tour company's 'all inclusive travel'. And what a lovely unspoiled island Ithaki is. Go there, you will not be disappointed.
We have just returned from a fabulous 2 week holiday at the Nostos hotel in Frikes. We booked the hotel directly with the owner (Nicki) who also arranged all our taxi transfers to get us to and from Kefalonia. From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were made to feel very welcome by the owners Nicki, Andreas and their son Loukas. We had booked a top floor room triple room with sea view which was immaculately clean. The room also had a ceiling fan, a/c, fridge and a kettle. The pool area was very spacious with a great sized swimming pool and pool bar serving drinks and excellent lunches. Throughout our stay Nicki was very helpful, giving ideas on places to see, she even arranged our car hire. Frikes is a beautiful little village with a small pebble beach in walking distance, a handful of tavernas and a few small shops.The next village of Stavros ( 5 minutes by car ) is absolutely wonderful and has a number of excellent tavernas/ cafes - we fell in love with this authentic village. Polis beach just outside Stavros was also one of our favourites. This was our first time on Ithaca but will not be our last- it ranks in our top 3 of the many Greek islands we have visited. Thanks again to Nicki and her family, we hope to return soon. …
