Experience the elegance of a Boutique Hotel with a twist of old world charm
The Orloff house was built in 1796 by a noble Russian sent by Catherine II to assist the Greeks during the Turkish domination. Its name is related to the first revolution in the late 18th century known as “Orloffika”. The house was privately owned by the Kladakis family for more than 80 years before being turned into a hotel in 1986. Since then it has undergone a thorough restoration, with full respect to the initial structure. With only 6 rooms, 2 suites and plenty of common areas; patios, courtyards, garden and verandas, total privacy is guaranteed.
We aspire to make your stay a truly authentic experience. While you relax at the hotel, we will assist you to discover the island and enjoy all it has to offer, the nice spots for a drink at night, the family tavernas where Greek cuisine is at its best and other more sophisticated places worth exploring. We will share our tips to turn your stay into a magical collection of moments, into a one-of-a-kind holiday. Our ambition at Orloff is to make you feel at home so that you too fall in love with the beautiful Saronic island of Hydra.
The Hotel Architecture
Initially built on the remains of a convent as attested on the main floor near a dwell, the house was later extended and acquired defensive architectural features of high walls made with the grey stone of Hydra and no balconies, a common characteristic of the island. With high wood paneled ceilings, the rooms are displayed around courtyards following the ancient Mediterranean architecture, where the view is inner rather than to the outside.
