We needed somewhere to stay in Mitilini in advance of catching a ferry early the next morning.
We had been on Lesvos for 5 nights already, as part of a 5 week tour hopping around the Greek Islands, so having an authentic Greek experience was not high on our list.
It was a hot afternoon, so what we were looking for was somewhere with a pool, where we could while away the afternoon, so a Heliotrope fit the bill.
Luckily we had a car, as it is 2-3 kilometres along the bay (out of town, toward the airport).
The hotel is modern, international style, so as I mentioned above - if you are looking for an authentic Greek experience, this may not be your place. For us, however, it was perfect!!
The rooms were super modern and clean and the shower unit, complete with high pressure Jutes, was to die for.
What impressed me most, however, was that upon arrival they seem to have a practice of orividing their guests with a fresh fruit platter. Their waiter went to our room and discovered that we were not there (did I mention it was hot?), so he asked for our description at the front desk and she pointed to us sitting by the pool, so he presented us with the fruit platter pool side - how cool is that?
All in all, we had a great one night stay, but it depends in what you are looking for.
