For many years, upon entering the harbour of Hydra, the first thing one would notice were the bundles of sponges lying on the docks, waiting to be shipped throughout the world. Sponges were the export product of Hydra and these were processed in the old sponge factory of Hydra, which was founded in 1870 by P.N. Verveniotis. For 130 years people worked in this factory in harmony with pleasure, in an area which inspires working. Throughout the day it was the sound of clipping scissors cutting sponges that filled the surroundings. Nowadays business has changed and the old sponge factory with its lovely garden and buildings has been made into a small boutique hotel with 26 rooms. The architect of the hotel received the Europa Nostra award in 1996 for his specific work in maintaining as much as possible of the old factory in the hotel. One of the old buildings is turned into an ideal venue for conferences, or companies meetings. In our conference room you can feel part of history and experience the inspiring atmosphere in which thousands of people have worked. It will seat 100 persons theatre style and 40 persons in a U-shape. The Bratsera Hotel will provide the following equipment for your use at no charge: overhead and DATA projector, screen flip- chart and WI-FI INTERNET.
