Irini Studios
Ranked #15 of 29 Specialty Lodging in Lassi
Reviewed June 21, 2012

Stayed her in 2009 studios refurbished and very good. The balcony and views were to die for and it was worth the walk into Agostoli for the people watching in the evening. taxi back!

Beaches are ok and water is clean, worth hiring a car to do the North of the Island. enough tavernas in lassi to do the week but we found it limiting for two, hence the walk into Agostoli.

Would return tomorrow but it looks like Olympic are not going to that studio at this time. Off to try Skiathos this year...

Room Tip: All room face front but ground floor will not have a view.... get aroom with a view!

Nice apartments with lovely seaview. The downside - close nearby there is several dogs chained up and they bark day and night which is most annoying since not even earplugs helped. But it was clean and newly refurbished. The closest beach Gradakia is not very nice and the beach of Makris Gialos (which is really nice!) is about 25 min walk away. To rent a car is almost necessary if you don't want to spend all time on the beach, the local bus services are very limited.

We stayed at the irini appartments 23rd of aug till 6th of sept 09.The apartments are small but quite modern and clean,good location with fantastic views.Spiros the owner asks for 50 euros a wk for air-con and 15 euros for the safety deposit box,we didnt but our neigbours bargained the price down,worth a try.We used the Metaxatos pool which was great,Missi and all the other staff was very friendly and welcoming.Lassi is a good base but recommend exploring the rest of the island ,good idea to hire a car enjoy!

Recently my boyfriend and I got back from Lassi and we stayed at Irini Studios. It was very clean and well kept. The bathroom was compact but how long are you likely to spend in there!? The kitchen came with the essentials, great for self-catering. It was very cosy and perfect for me and my boyfriend.
From both balconies there were incredible views, great to sit out there and have a drink or relax. If your worried about the heat, they offer Air-conditioning or a fan for a small price!
Irini Studios doesn't have a pool but there are various pools that welcome you to use them, also the beach is a 5-10 min walk away, there are a few to choose from. All are gorgeous!
Also just down the hill from Irini Studios on the main road, you'll find a supermarket called Dolphin Supermarket for all your needs!

We had a great time in Lassi and give Irini Studios " A thumbs up!"

Just come back from Irini Studios, Lassi end July/Aug, with my partner and 13 yr old daughter, the apt was ok, my daughter slept in kitchen area which is small but ok, bathroom small & compact (nicely tiled.) Clean towels & bedding changed regulaly, terrace spacious. Views great. Didn't have a pool, but did find afew that we could use, do check as some charge 5 euros per bed. Cockerel got on nerves with its early morning wake up call and the hunting dogs, barking alot at night, the locals don't seem to hear them! But apart from that pretty good. Wouldn't let that put you off going. The walk up the hill was hard at first, but did get easier as the days went on, ( got quite fit towards the end of hols) however my partner did find a short cut, down passed the Sissy Pool/Bar to the left, which cut off most of hill, this is only a slight slope, not lite though only went down when still light. Found most of the restuarants were good, and prices reasonable too. Went to The Eden alot for drinks, Tina who runs it is lovely, the surroundings are fab, coloured water features, laid back and relaxed, which you find most of restuarants/bars are, and everybody speaks good english, which puts us brits to shame when we can't understand there language, did try a few words which went down well, and wasn't corrected which is a bonus. The beaches were lovely, and the sunset beautiful. Argostoli was good, walked it there twice, once main rd and second time through the little streets. Fab boats. Nothing really for kids to do, swimming and people watching. Taxi usually 5-6 Euros. Do check out the supermarket prices, bottled water at the Dolphin was 80 Euros, but only 40 Euros further near the resturants. Overall had great time, partner must of enjoyed it, proposed on our beach party, down near the mediterrean hotel, watching the sunset. Romantic.
pics to follow.

I was a little aprehensive when on the transfer coach to see what these studio apartments were like, there were a lot of mixed reviews. I was put at ease when we got in to our apartment, we had a lovely view of the beach from both our balcony's- the apartment was clean and well maintained, the kitchen was small but perfect for what we needed it for.
The studios are set back from the main strip - taking about 5 mins to walk in to town and about 10 mins to the local beach, but if you are thinking of going to kefalonia i highly recommend hiring a car. We hired one for 5 days and explored the whole island, it really is beautiful and the sun sets/ beaches are to die for! Assos is a place you must visit, its gorgeous :) Highly recommend Irini as a place to stay!!

We have been back from the Irini Studios for about 4 weeks now and after promising Athina (the wonderful owner) we would write a glowing review of her fantastic aprtments thought it about time to do so.

Having stayed in various accomodation in Greece you pretty much know what to expect from self catering studios. The Irini Studios however is probably the best accomodation of this type we have come accross.

Set back from the main Lassi strip - at the top end towards Argostoli - the location was perfect, away from the busy main road but only a 10 - 15 min walk to the centre resort. Yes there is a bit of a walk but for the wonderful views and the tranquility of the location makes it all worthwhile. The views and sunsets are amazing, even more so on a clear evening.

The accomodation is indeed newly refurbished and comrises of living area/kitchen (fully equipped with fridge, appliances and ample cutlery and crockery) with dining table, large sofa and wardrobe. separate bedroom (with double bed!) and separate en suite power shower and toilet. Everything was seemingly brand new and fully equipped with plenty of storage. each studio has 2 yes 2 balconies! one off of the bedroom and one off of the living area. The general decor and standard of finish is fantastic in all rooms.

Like most greek apartments the water is heated using solar power and hot water was generally not available in the morning. In the evening however this was never a problem. Bins were emptied and Rooms tidied daily with linen changes twice a week and plenty of clean towels

There are 3 levels to the apartments and whilst the views maybe slightly restricted on the ground floor, we were on the middle level and the views were great. On the top level there is also a sun terrace with 4 sunbeds. On the downside there is no pool but when you have some of the best beaches on the island only 20 mins away this isnt a major issue.

Air conditioning is available but for an extra 50Euros a week we decided it was a luxury not needed.

All in all we had a fantastic holiday and the Irini Studios made for the perfect base for which to explore. I would have no reservations recommending this accomodation to everyone.
