The hotel, housed in a gloriously restored neo-classical mansion, is an oasis of calm in the heart of Corfu''s vibrant capital. Originally the 19th-century residence of one of the island''s ""first families"", in the 20th century the edifice served as a consulate, the National Bank of Greece, and a lyceum for Corfiot schoolgirls. In 1988, the apricot-hued stately home became a hotel known for its serenity and, in 2006, it was lovingly renovated to serve the needs of third-millennium guests from the world over. The hotel comprises 32 rooms, with two beautiful rooms designed with honeymooners in mind and a second floor grand master suite, ideal for families, round off the range of accommodation units on offer. Facilities include a air conditioning, a lobby, a bar and a TV room. Renovated in elegant style by interior designer Marilou Dolianite, the rooms all include an en suite bathroom, direct dial telephone, Internet access, flat screen TV, safe, individual air conditioning and a state-of-the-art orthopaedic bed featuring a double mattress and exquisite linens and duvets.
