We really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in the last week of September. The hotel is clean, modern, good location. The room on the ground floor was actually a bit dark and narrow, but really, this isn't a complaint, for the price we paid it was more than adequate.
The reason I give it five stars is the staff. It is true - they really are the nicest, most accomodating people we have ever met. The old lady on reception speaks basic English but is a laugh and appreciates a bit of Greek! Her daughter on the bar at night was so lovely and friendly. Great location on the road. Across the road at Mystic Gusto is good for cheap food and drink - but be warned, if you sit down the front, they get you up for Rhyl Pontins type songs, Superman etc! Other faves were Ionio restaurant for quality and nice staff, Sirtaki restaurant cheap and friendly. For drinks, Eden garden is chilled, Trendis is popular but not that great really. Best place for late drink was Il Gabbiano - Pedro is a funny, friendly barman and seemed to undercharge us most nights just to please us! The walk to Argostoli is doable, but a bit uneasy at the top of the hill working out where to walk and how to steer clear of the cars - don't let that put you off, just know there'll be a few hundred scruffy yards, then it's fine. Ask the cabbie's the fare before you get in - we paid 6 Euros from Argostoli to Lassi on a Saturday night.
