A friendly, family run hotel in the centre of Ouranoupolis, very close to the Byzantine Tower and the harbor. It is open all year round and aims to provide good quality accommodation at very reasonable prices.
Over the years it has become the favourite stop-over for visitors to Mount Athos and travelling monks. Many intellectuals and artists enjoyed the hospitality of Xenios Zeus, among them the philosopher Herbert Marcuse, the monk Paisios and the painter Yiannis Tsarouhis. This is where the director Theodoros Agelopoulos stayed for two months in 1997, while filming his movie “Eternity and a Day” for which he was honoured with the golden palm at the Canes film festival in 1998.
There is a traditionally styled TV lounge and bar, which is also used as a breakfast room. A delicious and highly recommended continental breakfast is served, which includes fresh organic eggs, home made jam or preserves and seasonal home grown fruits.
Breakfast can also be taken alfresco on the patio in front of the hotel, under large umbrellas, while watching the world go by.
The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and comfortable, as well as being modestly priced. Each room has a private balcony with a table and chairs, ideal for relaxing. Some rooms have spectacular views of the bay.
All the rooms are well equipped with individually regulated air conditioning and heating, color TV, direct dial telephone, and private WC with shower.
