This is a small hotel with a restaurant opposite the much bigger Hotel Sevastocrator. However it has by far the best food in Arbanasi as well as very friendly staff. We tried a number of restaurants in the village and cannot recommend this place highly enough

It is a nice small family run hotel (~8 rooms) with a small restaurant. You will see on booking it has 3 stars, but in reality only 1 (local classification). From experience I would say it fits in the middle - 2 stars hotel. If I would rate it as 3 stars I would say is not so good, but... More

I spent a weekend at Hotel Elena and had a lovely time as a single person. The staff were very friendly and helpful and guided me towards the sights. The room was very clean and they were especially attentive at dinner because I was a lone female traveller. Bobby was great! I will definitely visit them again.

We stayed a lovely room with a balcony and a brilliant view for 6 days in June. The staff were so welcoming, helpful and fluent in English that it made us feel really at home in a country where we don't speak the language. The only downside was the shortage of coat hangers but that was rectified within minutes when... More
