Where to Stay in Corfu Town

Greece Travel Secrets recommends where to stay in Corfu Town including hotels near the port, near the airport and in the town centre, with budget and luxury options.

Arcadion Hotel in Corfu TownArcadion Hotel in Corfu Town

Arcadion Hotel

A lovely shining curved wooden reception desk greets you as you enter the friendly Arcadion Hotel, which combines classical looks and history with modern comfort. The entrance is around the corner on Vlasopoulou, though the building looks out over Kapodistriou, the southern end of the Liston and the Spianada, an ideal location. Try to get one of the front rooms if you can, though the side ones looking out over the Old Town are also attractive.


Hotel Arion in Corfu TownHotel Arion in Corfu Town

Hotel Arion

The Hotel Arion is only a minute or so from the entrance to the Mon Repos estate, in the quiet, village-like suburb of Anemomylos. It's a pleasant 15-minute walk around Garitsa Bay into the town centre, too. The Arion is a smart, modern hotel at a very reasonable price. It has 105 comfortable rooms, a large lounge/reception area and a big rooftop terrace with seating, a bar and wonderful sea views.


The Atlantis Hotel in Corfu TownThe Atlantis Hotel

Atlantis Hotel

The Atlantis Hotel is conveniently placed near the port, if you're arriving or leaving by ferry, and right on the edge of the old town too. Most of the rooms and suites have balconies and views over the Ionian Sea, and although it’s only a 2-star hotel and inexpensive, it is clean and friendly and all rooms have air-conditioning, TV, direct-dial phones and ensuite bathrooms.


The Bella Venezia Hotel in Corfu TownThe Bella Venezia Hotel

Bella Venezia

The Bella Venezia is in a neo-classical mansion, once a girl's high school, and it oozes the kind of character that many hotels these days lack. Rooms are large with high ceilings, breakfast is in a garden pergola, and it is only a short walk down to Town Hall Square. 


The Hotel Bretagne in Corfu TownThe Hotel Bretagne in Corfu Town

Hotel Bretagne

The Hotel Bretagne is a budget but very comfortable option for those with late or early flights, as it is within walking distance of the airport. This proximity does mean that airport noise at other times can be a problem, so bring your ear-plugs. It is modern and cheerful and has its own bar and restaurant... which are also well worth knowing about if you have airport delays.


Cavalieri Hotel in Corfu TownCavalieri Hotel in Corfu Town

Cavalieri Hotel

Everybody in Corfu Town knows the Cavalieri Hotel, as in summer its rooftop bar is one of the places to have a drink. It's rather a plush place in a 17th-century mansion, and though some of the 50 rooms are small it does have class and character. All rooms have balconies, with the front ones offering lovely views of the sea and the New Fortress.

Divani Corfu Palace Hotel in Corfu TownDivani Corfu Palace Hotel

Divani Corfu Palace

The 4-star Divani Corfu Palace is out on the Kanoni peninsula, a 5-minute drive from the airport. Despite being about 3 kms (1.9 miles)  from the town centre, and 1.5 kms (0.9 miles) from the beach at Mon Repos, it still proves immensely popular with people looking for an all-inclusive resort-style hotel, where every facility is available. It has luxury rooms and suites, and its two conference centres also make it a top business choice.

Konstantinoupolis Hotel in Corfu TownKonstantinoupolis Hotel in Corfu Town

Konstantinoupolis

Built in 1862 the Konstantinoupolis oozes old-world elegance, with marble steps and a spiral wooden staircase leading you up to the rooms (and an old-fashioned elevator too). It's handy for Old Port and Old Town alike, and though some of the rooms are small they are charming, with bright blue tiled baths. The breakfast room is also bright and cheerful, and there's 24-hour room service too. Don’t let the 2-star rating mislead you, it’s exceptionally good.


Mayor Mon Repos Palace Hotel in Corfu TownMayor Mon Repos Palace Hotel

Mayor Mon Repos Palace

The Mayor Mon Repos Palace is a very attractive resort-style hotel with 114 rooms, all of them having TV, air-conditioning, phone, fridge, and balconies.

It has its own small plunge pool and sunbathing terrace, but is right by the Mon Repos beach too.
