Bratsera Hotel Hydra



Welcome to Bratsera Hotel in Hydra

Bratsera Boutique Hotel unfolds a story rooted in maritime history. Originally a sponge factory, established by Nickolaos Verneniotis in 1860, this charming space has been thoughtfully restored into a boutique hotel named Bratsera. Paying homage to the place where fishing fleets once embarked on journeys for sponge harvesting. The name "Bratsera" reflects the Greek sponge divers' term for the mother-vessel, linking the hotel to the island's seafaring past.

Bratsera's rare gem, a spacious garden with a pool and sun loungers, creates a peaceful, lush retreat in the heart of Hydra, which is rare to find on the island. With meeting spaces full of natural light, and accommodating up to 100 guests, Bratsera is a great spot for business events, social gatherings, and dinners. Adding to the experience is the Bratsera New Concept Restaurant, situated in the 'Magganos,' a restored traditional water mill within the garden.

The hotel's emblematic atmosphere reflects the history of the beautifully transformed building. Conveniently close to the port, Bratsera ensures easy access, making it a welcoming destination for business guests, as well as those looking for a romantic escape. Featuring suites with spacious balconies, guests can enjoy stunning views of the island. Dive into the allure of Bratsera, where history, ultimate comfort, and authenticity come together for an unforgettable guest experience.
