For our trip to Alonnisos in 2018 we once again needed to overnight in Skiathos, as we arrived an hour later than the last boat for the evening left that particular night in mid-July. Since we were only staying just the one night, we simply wanted a clean, safe, and cost-effective place that was near to port so we could catch our ferry to Alonnisos the next day. In the past we stayed several times at a hotel outside the city center, however, this year the price was way too high (i.e., 100 Euros) for just a one night stay after a late evening arrival.
So, I came across information about Fresh Rooms on Booking.com and made a reservation. The owner/manager Michalis (Michael) was very friendly and hospitable. The room itself was fairly basic but clean and with AC as well. There was no Wi-Fi to my knowledge, but we really didn’t care since we would only be there a short time. We didn’t have a “view” but that didn’t matter to us either. The price at the time was 50 Euros, which was just fine. Note also that the place is up on a hill so there are some steps to climb.
We really liked the location because it’s right off the main road and it took us just five minutes to walk to the center of the port that evening for dinner at our favorite restaurant in Skiathos (i.e., Paraxenos – awesome food by the way). The next morning Michalis was kind enough to drive us to the port (less than 1km) since we had the suitcases to deal with and were running a bit late; we really appreciated that.
Bottom line, in our case this was a great place to stay in Skiathos based on our itinerary as pass-through travelers. Based on this experience, we would definitely stay there again on our way to Alonnisos.
