Byron Hotel

Hotel Byron, in Nafplio, took its name in honor of the great philhellene and romantic poet George Gordon Byron. The hotel is located in Nafplion between two very important churches, Agios Spyridon, once the first metropolis of the newly established state and the Catholic church that houses the Philippine monument.

At the time when Nafplio was the capital, the Byron Hotel building has also been used as an embassy. Then until the beginning of the Second World War there was one of the city's mansions.

From 1945 until the change, it was rented mainly to poor families. In 1986 it was renovated and functions as a traditional two star hotel, hosting many personalities.
