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.
