“Unique Experience in Mytilene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

This is an originally built as a summer house/mansion 1880's and converted into a beautiful B&B. It looks like old plantation mansions of Southern USA. There is a serene zen sense on the grounds with landscape, seawater pool, nature music, sea view. If you are looking for a loud Greek experience with loud music and local food, this is not for you. The rooms in the old stone building reflects the period it was built. We stayed in room 602, second floor of the main building overlooking the sea. The furniture in the rooms in the old building reflects the period it was built with unusually high ceilings with a painted mural. The room has an entrance and the bedroom, it really does not have a separate living room.

We used this hotel as our wedding reception. I have had nothing but a great experience, in addittion to having the hotel as the wedding venue we also had many of our friends stay there as well as ourselves. It is a great value for money and a gorgious building. The pool also is awesome. I would recommend that you stay within the building as the rooms are spectacular!!

We stayed 7 nights. The place is devine. The mansion is like a in fary tales. Perfect architecture, nice furniture, well kept. We loved sitting for hours at the big living rooms in the main entrance to read books and go through old deco magazines. James and Effie are brother and sister the oweners of the place. Try to meet them. They are so special! The gardens and the pool are so confortable and delicate. The absolutely delicious breakfast in a summerish decorated place is more than the best. Homemade jam, muesli, bread, very well presented!
we want to be there every year. All we wanted was immediately solved. And the island is worth seeing before it get too crowded.

Although its location (not really close to the city center but close to the University that I had to visit) is great, the main hall with the reception is really nice, its price was decent & the breakfast was ok, the noice isolation between the rooms wasn't existing at all...

When we arrived at the Loriet Hotel, it was the beggining of Febuary. Very cold winter frothe island. James the owener was there waiting for us with ouzo and loukoumi for the welcome and he took us to this fanatstic suite upgrading our reservation. It is a fantastic mantion very nicely decorated. We had tasty breakfast every morning with a big variety of homemade james, musley, cakes and bread. The rooms were very warm and we want to come in Summer to enjoy the swimming pool and the luscious gardens. ITs worth staying in this place. my friends stayed at the appartments at the back yard.They are quite, clean and with a nice 80s atmosphere.
we loved it.

i love this particular hotel very near the airport in mityline, less island. The city is far, and you will need a cab or a long walk, but the hotel itself is quite and experience, i once stayed in one of the bungalows, very spacious and quiet, and once in one suite in the main building where all rooms are special and have a unique style, the owner is a very interesting man, and you'll feel a lot more than staying in a hotel, you'll share something.
Only drawback is the food, they just can't coo, but there are many opportunities to have great meals in Mityline that you easily pass over this, just keep some stuff for breakfast in your room...

We went in September which is the end of the season, it was nice and quiet, beautiful pool, huge breakfast, and close to the town and airport. There are 2 tavernas close by, a cafe bar, and 2 mini supermarkets. The staff are great, and even got us a lift to the airport, when the taxis were on strike.
