I had a group of adults and kids stay at the Hotel Byron in March of 2018. The rooms were all clean and comfortable. The upper level rooms had great views of the town. Teh family suites at street level were very large. Wifi worked ok. Some areas better than others. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Location was very convenient for town centre. We came on larger bus so we weren't able to pull up to hotel. Had to carry out bags a couple of blocks. Smaller cars may be able to get closer.

But overall great experience.

Room tip: Top floors for best views of town and castle. Ask for balcony.

We loved the Byron Hotel. It is the right distance from all of the hustle and bustle yet close enough to make everything convenient in old town. The view is incredible and the rooms are very comfortable. Breakfast was fresh with a nice variety and the fresh squeezed orange juice was the special touch. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations which were all delicious.

Room tip: We loved the ocean view room on the 4th floor.

Our room was in this charming hotel's adjacent building, which offers rooms for families. The room was quite large with a double bed and sitting area, which had been converted to another sleeping area (my daughter loved being in her own nook). We can't comment on the main hotel building or its views. We were ground level (which meant we heard the people above us — if you are noise sensitive, ask for an upper room) and had our own key to our building; we felt like a local with our own private apartment! Of course, we were welcome to the main building for the lovely patio and the daily breakfasts. The staff was friendly and very helpful (great restaurant suggestions). We enjoyed our stay.

This hotel is one of the most quaint ones I've ever stayed in. It's like emerging yourself in the bygone era where Byron himself lived (although not in this very building). Across from the threshold stands the doorstep of the church where Kapodistrias was murdered by the Mavromichalis Brothers - talk about staying at the heart of a historical city! By the doorstep was also a quaint little terrace with a dome which belonged to Turkish baths in the past. It all added to a feeling of getting immersed in history. The hotel staff were courteous - this is a family-run business where the human touch is prominent and we felt perfectly welcome. The receptionist was helpful, chatty, and even offered sightseeing tips and historical facts unprompted, much to our delight. The bathroom and bed linen smelled fresh and clean. The bed was very comfortable and we had ample heating and hot water conveniences. Every evening, we walked into the quaint dining area to relax with a hot beverage and the receptionist always rushed to prepare them for us. We enjoyed them always on the same corner table by the bookshelf they have there. We are bookworms, and were delighted to find that - also pleased that the receptionist on duty was happy to let us take a couple books in exchange of some that we had brought with us. The location of the hotel was phenomenal. Everything was close by - famous landmarks, as well as fabulous shops and eateries. I strongly recommend strolling down the lane from the hotel entrance to Pyli Xiras (a Venetian gate and old canal site) and from there, past the waterfalls cafe, go up the steps and turn right to walk up to Acronafplia and its ancient fort ruins (I do not refer to the infamous Palamidi fort, but to the lower hilltop over the city where the old clock and a modern luxury hotel are situated). The seaviews from up there are stunning and it's a much easier climb than to Palamidi. On the way back, you can take the coastal route past the little beach that takes you to the lighthouse and the view to Bourtzi from the other side of the peninsula.

A few words of warning:
Although the room was very quaint, it felt quite small - the ceiling quite low too. I wouldn't recommend it for the claustrophobic or for tall/large people as they might feel uncomfortable. I am 5'4" and still felt at times like Gulliver :) Also, beware if you are not too fit or have mobility problems - there is no lift and there are MANY steps in front of the main hotel building.

Rustic, cozy, and well-priced, the Byron is not for the weak: the nearest parking spot, if you can find one, is a 5 minute walk away, and then you need to climb some 30 steps just to reach the hotel's front door! But if you're sure of foot and light of luggage, it's an excellent value for a cute stay in the quietest part of Nafplio. The only thing you might hear is the 8am church bell.

We stayed in room 33, which I recommend if you're willing to climb up 3 more flights of stairs. This spacious room comes with a small balcony and an excellent view of the town. (There is a similar room on the second floor.)

The staff is demure, possibly due to language issues, but they are polite. Our room was kept clean and checkin and checkout were a breeze. When we booked, it appeared as though breakfast was 6€ extra, but we weren't charged for it when we went down each morning to enjoy their simple spread.
