Two years later, we found ourselves in a similar situation, in that a ferry we were to take to Santorini didn’t leave for three hours. So, we took a taxi to the Stellina Hotel to say hello to Jorgos, and to ask if we could possibly fill the time we had by sitting around his pool and having a couple of beers. While he didn’t remember our names, he definitely remembered our faces and was just as hospitable as he was when we first met him. In answer to my question he said “fisi-kah file-mou” (of course, my friend), and motioned us to leave our bags at the desk and head out to the pool. He then called a taxi for us when we were ready to leave. We returned to the Stellina Hotel yet again in 2016 on our way home from Alonnisos, stayed for one night and were once again very pleased with the room and the customer service as well. Because of these very positive experiences, I highly recommend the Stellina Hotel for anyone looking for a place to stay on Skiathos.
The Stellina Hotel is located about a half-mile from the city center of Skiathos, and is perhaps two minutes away from the airport. All the rooms are furnished in the traditional Greek style with balcony and a wonderful view from most rooms. To visit the Stellina Hotel Website, click here.
