Accommodation

One of the most vital parts of any trip is accommodation. Where will you be spending your days and nights? Greece has a lot of accommodation options for all tastes and budgets. Here are the most popular options.

Hotels and Hostels

Hotels are the first option that comes to mind when someone thinks about accommodation. Found via online booking services, there are thousands of these around the country. The ones with the most stars are of the highest quality but also the most expensive. They are great for both families and people traveling alone. They are good for short stays of a few days.

Airbnb

Airbnb are apartments and houses which can be rented for longer periods of time than hotels and end up being more economic. They don’t belong to a company but rather to local hosts. They are the perfect option for families as they usually offer more space making them easier for children to move around. However, if they’re too big, sometimes they are rented to a couple of families at the same time, which means you might have to share. This is agreed on since the beginning though.

Couchsurfing

This is a great option if you’re hitchhiking or are traveling alone or are on a very tight budget. It is certainly the cheapest form of accommodation but you rely on the kindness of others using the same platform to host you.

Resorts

Finally we have resorts. Greece and especially the islands are not short of these. Some of the most luxurious and popular resorts in the world can be found in Santorini, Crete, Corfu and more. They offer pools, spas, saunas and even incredible rooftop bars and clubs. These are the more expensive options for accommodation but also the dreamiest.

Spending days in Greece will be so much better if you have a good place to stay. We hope this information was helpful for you.
