The hotel, which has a capacity of 80 beds, lies in a unique location, on the coastal road of the old harbour in the historical centre of Nafplion, looking out on to Bourtzi, the Argolikos Gulf and the fields.
It is a 3,600 m2 four-storey building dating back to the 50s, which was built in successive phases and presented structural, functional and morphological problems that needed to be addressed globally and radically in the early 21st century.
It is characterised by a compact two-storey base with few openings and a fine dry stonewall made of local stone; the two upper storeys are characterised by their light construction, with a visible bearing organism and large window sashes.
The building, on the one hand because of its old age and its direct contact with the sea and, on the other hand, because of its high standards, required significant reinforcements in its bearing structure, radical refurbishment of its outer shell (insulation, plastering, door and window frames), and modernisation of the elevations. It was also necessary to replace and fully modernise the facilities of the building, so that it fulfills the standards of a luxury city hotel that is designed to meet the requirements of the next fifteen years.
