Best Hotels in Corfu

When picking a hotel in Corfu, the location is crucial. This will determine if you need a car, what sites nearby you will have, and what kind of ambiance you want.


So I have divided the options into 4 locations, in each offering budget-friendly, medium, and luxury options. I will also comment a bit on each location.


I personally think these 4 locations are the best picks when considering hotels in Corfu:

  • Corfu Old Town

  • Dassia

  • Agios Georgios Beach Cove

  • Paleokastritsa Area

At the end, I will also cover a few hotels to highlight outside the above 4 areas.

Corfu Old Town

This location will be an excellent choice where to stay in Corfu if you are short on time and want to stay in a convenient location. From here of course you will be able to easily explore the Old Town of Corfu and also find and book different day trips! Staying in this area will not require you to have a car. Both, the port and airport, are close to the old town so picking your base in the Corfu Old Town will be a great choice for those looking for a convenient location.
