“wonderful holidays”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

With my wife and my two children, we stayed two weeks in the studio on the top level. These were wonderful holidays. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We appreciated a lot the home made marmalades and the cocktails. The sight from the balcony (not only the sea, but the castle above Platanos) is wonderful. The children (and the adults) loved the swimming pool. The hotel is 500 meters from the sea (nice and quiet beach). It is very close to Platanos downtown (small supermarket plus many shops for vegetables, fruits, bread, cookies), which is very nice for a studio with cooking facilities. Last, I would say that the Hotel Elefteria is located in Platanos, which is a "real" city (though small), not a city which only relies on tourism. For us, this is also one of the very nice features of the hotel.

Stayed August 2012, traveled with family

We stayed at the Hotel Elefteria by chance, Andonis and Luna were waiting on the quayside when our catamaran arrived after a long and very rough journey from Symi.
They took us to the hotel and gave us a ground floor room which was very clean and comfortable. We ate an excellent evening meal, cooked by Andonis, in the roof garden. Situated just below the traditional, tree covered square of Platanos with its cafenions, shops and small supermarket, the hotel is within easy walking distance of Panteli and Agia Marina. We only meant to stay one night before moving on but ended up staying three. We would definitely stay there again. Andonis and Luna couldn't have been kinder or more helpful.

We stayed at the Elefteria for a few days at the end of July.
We were welcomed to the hotel by Antonis and Luna, the owners, who were friendly and helpful throughout our stay.
Our room was simple but clean and comfortable with efficient air-con, comfortable beds,effective blinds that kept the room dark for a good night's sleep and a balcony with a view of the Castro (beaten only by the view from the roof terrace). The hotel's wi-fi worked well in the room and on the terrace. We had no problems with noise.
Breakfast is basic but breakfast time is flexible, a big bonus.
The hotel is near the centre of Platanos, well placed to pick up a taxi or to catch the bus to explore Leros. Platanos is also a short walking distance from the beaches at Vromolithos and Pantelli and to the small port of Agia Marina. The walks back are uphill but not too taxing.
The hotel's rooftop pool is small but has clean, cool water - very refreshing after a walk back from the beach. The bar on the roof terrace is a good place for a relaxing, sociable drink, even if you are not staying at the hotel.
An unusual and interesting feature of the Elefteria is the WW2 museum, which is housed in the basement and is a collection belonging to the owner's father.
We will definitely visit Leros again and when we do we will stay at the Elefteria.

I spent 2½ weeks partly alone and partly with my friends and kids. Everything you need is there and the days and evenings spent dinning with or without the family were all cosy and relaxed. You can be private or social as you please. Beaches, restaurants, monastaries etc. can be reached within max ½ hour. If you want to explore other sights, rent a bike, scooter or go on a truely wonderfull boattrip for the day, you just let a word fall and it is arranged within minutes. A very pleasant experience and value for the relatively little amount of money. I loved it ;-)

Pros: The hotel is located on the mountain and thus has very spectacular views from its rooftop pool. The hotel is about 10 minute walking distance from the harbour (uphill) which is very doable unless you have a lot of luggage. The island of Leros is very picturesque and holds strong to its traditional greek roots.

Cons: The hotel rooms are not soundproofed, and although the hotel wasn’t busy while we were there the activities on the roof could be heard. The fridge is maybe in need of replacement because it makes loud noises. The hotel doesn’t take Credit Card.

Family run place Greek/Danish with great atmosphear. Roof top terrace with pool and snack bar, ideal place to cool off after a hot day. Rooms are clean and basic. View from balcony over the islands famous castle. Also offer apartments with more facilities Comfortable with AC.
Hotel next to a town square you will hope to co back to with coffee bars, restaurant and fruit market.
Local beach is 10 minute walk away and is a nice place to spend the day. Selection of tavernas and free sunbeds if you buy refreshments. Preferred mooring spot for impressive yachts.
Short walk to harbour and town with more to choose from.
We enjoyed our 4 days in Leros and Elefteria
