“A pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

We decided to go to Lefkada for several days without a plan and reservations at hotels. When we reached the city we started walking around and choosing a hotel in the island’s capital. After reading the negative reviews about Nirikos, we decided that we will not stay there. However all the other hotels were either fully booked or severely overpriced. So we decided to try Nirikos and were pleasantly surprised. We took a room for one night but after that extended by one more night. The location is great – in the very beginning of the main pedestrian street with many shops, cafes and tavernas; very beautiful sea-views; the price is reasonable – at least it compares well with the other 2 hotels nearby; the room was comfortable and clean – equipped with good hairdryer, very quiet aircon, small fridge, TV… The breakfast was nothing special, not a very big choice, but this is not such an issue.
As arrived late and we had not booked a room in advance, we were given one of the last free rooms which was on the first floor and had no balcony. The upper floors offer rooms with better view and a balcony where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine and the beautiful view. There is no parking (like the other two hotels nearby - Lefkada and Ionion Star) but the parking on the street in front is for free and safe (as we were told by the locals). It might be a bit hard to find a place in the busy season or part of the day.
I would recommend this hotel for a couple of nights.

Room Tip: higher floors have balconies

The staff is very friendly but i've heard some not very nice things about the owner who is treating bad the employees.i spoke to somebody from there and in the last 4 moths 6 women were fired and didn't get their money for their work and besides this, this women,the employer, anna nikodimou, is not making them papers for work....so she has people who work illegal for her.....and they are not very clean.....for eg once they had a client a young women which stained the bed sheets during her period and the women who was cleaning up there was forced to wash them in the kitchen in the sink...exactly where they was dishes...not very hygienic.....
