Stayed at the Lena for 2 weeks in September 2012. The Lena is across the road from the beach, close to the harbour area of Elounda, and there was always lots of hot water. We stayed in Room No 9 which is a large corner room on the 1st floor, with balconies on two sides. I was shown to the room on arrival by the owner. The mat outside the bathroom was soaking wet, and the floor of the bathroom was awash with water. The owner said it was because the cleaning hadn't been finished. Only 1 towel issued per visitor and the owner very begrudgingly gave me two handtowels when I insisted. Apart from the water from the shower coming up through the drain in the middle of the bathroom (quite normal in Greece), when we let water out of the handbasin it regularly flooded the bathroom floor and in the end we bought cleaning cloths and dried the bathroom floor two/three times each day. Towels changed twice a week, sheets once a week. When I asked for clean sheets after 5 days, the owner said I would have to pay for them. This could be a nice place to stay if the owner spent some money on the plumbing and wasn't so penny-pinching, but I wouldn't recommend it at present.
