A Glorious New Boutique Hotel Opens in Ioannina

Naiades Guesthouse is a striking new boutique hotel that has opened its pretty doors in the centre of Ioannina, right at the historical castle district.

Set in a neoclassical building Naiades features a mix of modern and simple lines that are softly combined with local traditional influences. Blending in harmoniously with the aesthetics of the nearby castle- the hotel offers guests a charming and cozy spot to explore Epirus’ capital city.


Located 200 metres from the famous Castle of Ioannina, which was built in the 6th century and is the oldest Byzantine fortress in Greece- Naiades residence is close to The Pavlos Vrellis Museum of Greek History, the Silversmithing Museum of Ioannina, the Cathedral of Agios Athanasios and the Byzantine Museum of Ioannina. Ioannina Airport is only 4 km from the property and it’s also nearby to the Vikos Gorge, Permama Cave, and Lake Pamvotida. 

Style & Design

The neoclassical building boasts traditional architecture and spacious areas that have been wonderfully filled with contemporary decor. From bright and bold colours to soft and pretty pastels, each room has its own unique style. Throughout the hotel, there is oakwood flooring and furnishings, velvet curtains, modern chandeliers; plus contemporary artwork, and splashes of metallics and marble. 


The hotel has eight unique rooms including a Deluxe Room, Superior Room, and Deluxe Suites. On the ground floor and first level, the guest rooms feature colourful selections of decor with custom-made furniture. Ample windows allow plenty of natural light in the rooms and each one includes air conditioning and a flat-screen TV.

Garden Area

The outside of the hotel is just as inviting as the interior spaces. From the ground floor, stairs lead down to a charming stone courtyard at the back of the building where grey metallic chairs and marble tables offer an airy and intimate space for guests to enjoy a buffet or à la carte breakfast. The lush greenery and pretty pots also make it an appealing spot for guests to sit back and relax with a glass of wine. 

Dining Area 

The main dining area is in the basement of the hotel and features red, green, and yellow furniture. Marble and wooden tables with velvet armchairs fill the open space that also features an open kitchen. Guests are also able to enjoy an intimate reading corner; and there is also a central fireplace- just perfect for those cold, winter days.

Anyone wishing to experience Ioannina’s rich history, local traditions, classical architecture, breathtaking landscapes, and buzzing cafe scene.
