Are you having trouble choosing a hotel in Athens, on one of the islands, Delphi, Meteora or anywhere in Greece? Do you want someone to help you find a hotel but you don't want to get involved with booking through a travel agent if you don't have to and are perfectly willing to book your own ferries and transportation? This page will help you.
Here's how it works:
1) Use the form to send me basic information. All I really need is your name and e-mail address and where you want to stay, which island or Athens, Thessaloniki etc. What catagory hotel would be helpful too as will your dates. You can even ask me to recommend an island or whatever.
2) I will digest your info and send you back links to the hotels I would recommend. They may not be hotels I have stayed at but they will be hotels that match your needs and it is probably a safer bet then booking a hotel at random and discovering it's a bordello or next to a refinary.
What do I get out of this?
Why would I take the time to interrupt my writing and answering e-mail to help you find a hotel? Am I a super nice guy? Have I finally gone crazy? Well, both, plus by having the Hotel booking engine at booking.com I make a small comission on each person who books a hotel on my site. Say if a hotel costs 100 euro and booking.com gets 15% and I make 25% of their 15% that comes out to.... well not
very much but
enough to make it worth doing. But the only way it is worth it for me is if you book through the link I send you. If I spend time looking for a hotel and send you the link and then you go to Expedia or Travelocity or search other sites to try to save a euro then basically you just used me. People will do this, I know and there is nothing I can do about it. But hopefully you have enough integrity and are appreciative of the information I have provided on my websites to not take advantage of me.
Helpful Hotel Hints
If you have a simple itinerary and are looking for hotels in Athens and on one or two islands with daily ferry connections then this is a good way to book. For example if you are going to Santorini and Naxos or Paros which are on the same ferry line, or Mykonos and Tinos, or Aegina, Poros, Hydra and Spetses, or if you are just going to Crete or Rhodes you should be able to book your ferries easily enough so that you won't need a travel agent. But if you want to
go to Mykonos,
Santorini and Crete for example and want to do a daytrip or overnight tour to Delphi or Meteora, and will need transfers then you should go through a Greek travel agency like Fantasy Travel, Dolphin Hellas or Aegean Thesaurus (for Sifnos) or Hahathakis Travel (for Lesvos), all of which I recommend
because I have been working with them for years. You can even use my Create-an-Itinerary form if you have a good idea what you want to do. They can put together itineraries for you or with you, and they also have itineraries and island-hopping combinations on their websites that will save you money.
If you have a simple plan and want to book hotels directly, are confident you can master the ferries, and either use public transport or book your own transfers with George the Famous Taxi Driver for example, and don't anticipate the need of using a travel agency then you can use the hotel form or you can go to my Hotel Search Page if you want to search
