“The Real Greece”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

I was looking looking for the real Greece and I think I found it here. It's a family run place and they are all extremely friendly and helpful, always available to give advise on the local area, the island and its traditions. The hotel is kept spotlessly clean and the room looked newly decorated. It's very near the beach, just a few metres, but still quiet at night. This is one I'll be going back to in the future.

A very nice family hotel in Alinda. Near to the beach and the restaurants.
Very good cleaning. New for this year : order fresh fruit and vegetables in the evening and get delivery next morning, exellent quality and reasonable price.
The family is very nice and helpful.

We booked 2 nights in this family run hotel in Leros, but right after we checked in, we decided to stay 2 more nights since we found both the place and the hotel very cozy and comfortable for a relaxing holiday. The hotel is very close to the beach as well as restaurants and small shops in Alinda village/area on Leros Island. The stuff is very warm, attentive and welcoming.
Our room was big enough, with a balcony and a fresh nice bathroom. The room was equipped with air-conditioning (which functioned well as opposed to another hotel in Kos, where it good hardly did) and a refrigerator, which was a good help to have some fresh fruits and vegetables available all the time.
This was a very good choice and a great value for money, hence highly recommended to travelers who prefer to have simple but nice standard hotel accommodation.

Unfortunately the hotel does not offer breakfast (it is at least what I think) but it is not a big problem, since there are many options close by.

This small hotel, 15 rooms, is a perfect place to stay. Just 30 meters away from the busy beach road; still beeing very close to the beach... while there is no shower on the beach, it is easy just to walk up to the room for a shower and then back to the beach. Owner: Savvas is a very nice gentleman, who is willing to help You. For me he arranged a scooter in 10 minutes to the door after my request. -- Still if You want to explore the island, you need a scooter (or a car), no matter where You stay in Leros. Hotel itself is clean, and perfectly located. A small kitchenette in every room, no arranged breakfast avaliable, but that You can find in the tavernas by the beach.
