This hotel has a fantastic location, in the centre of Lassi with restaurants and shops on your doorstep and the beach a short walk away. The hotel is clean and comfortable, the rooms are decorated in a traditional style and are spotlessly cleaned. I can't recommend it highly enough as the owners provide a truly warm welcome and so it makes it a lovely place to stay. There is also a really nice bar that serves good quality drinks at good prices. If you are going to stay in Lassi I would highly recommend this hotel, we liked it so much we stayed for a month :)

Irilena hotel is located in Lassi , which is 2 km from the main city on the island Argostoli.
It's a small hotel ,rooms are cleaned daily, the sheets and towels are changed regularly,they offer private parking space which is necessary because you can't park the car on the main street and there is a perfect sea view. The staff is nice but they don't speak English so well. Breakfast is served between 08-10 o'clock and is ok.

I recommend to visit Kefalonia , it's a nice island with so many beautiful beaches ( Makrys Gyalos , Mirtos, Xi, etc.)

Room Tip: Small hotel ; Located near the best beach on the island Makrys Gyalos.

This was our first time in Kefalonia and we couldn't have wished for a better two weeks. This hotel was really great, very clean and the staff were brilliant in every way. We could not recommend this hotel enough excellent value for money, ten minutes from the most fabulous beach and the warmest welcome we have ever received.

We moved to this Hotel after booking out of the previous one as it was so bad. The people who run this Hotel could not have been more helpful. The rooms were very clean with the sheets and towels changed regularly. The shower was very powerful although there was not much room to move. The air conditioning was very good and quiet. The double doors to the balcony kept out all the traffic noise. The cleaners were brilliant and the room was sparkling every day. We only had a small balcony on the ground floor so it is better to ask for a sea view room. The breakfast was the usual continental with fresh bread, cheese, meat, cakes, cereal, yoghurt, fruit, boiled eggs etc and was perfectly acceptable. This Hotel seems to attract the elderly. The bar prices were very good compared to other bars. The beds as usual were very hard and you could feel the springs. The Hotel is in a good position with all the restaurants and bars within walking distance. The beach is down a cliff and would be awkward to get to with walking problems. September seems to be the month for the older generation to holiday and the restaurants seem to have no atmosphere at all. There was very little in the way of entertainment. There was nothing for children to do in the evenings. Kefalonia is a beautiful place to travel around and we found a hire car a must. The views around the coast are spectacular. The weather was very good most of the time with the odd thunderstorm and heavy downpour. Taxis into Argostoli are reasonable at 6 euros each way. The airport only takes 15 minutes to get to. I would not return to Kefalonia as we saw the entire Island but I would not put anyone off going except if you have children as there is very little for them to do.

Room Tip: We had room 101 which should be avoided as everyone can see you on the balcony and there is no priva...

me and my fiance went to Kefalonia with no idea what it would be like and we were totally amazed by how lovely the entire place was. more importantly we were amazed by how nice the people were.

we stayed for two weeks at the Irelina Hotel and the staff were amazing with us, so friendly and helpful and you really were made to feel part of the family that runs the hotel. the rooms were always clean and tidy, the breakfast, whilst being a basic breakfast, was always nice and the views were classic Greece. At night we would go for a walk down the main street to the restaurants which always served delicious food (I would recommend the Kefalonian Meat Pie! TO DIE FOR) and then go to a local bar for cocktails.

even though there isnt a pool attached to the Irelena there is one just over the road which you can use that is easy to find but really with a beach as lovely and a sea that is amazing we never bothered with the pool at all. the sunloungers are priced extraordinarily well and the beach bar was brilliant for drinks, just a quick walk up the road to the restaurant facing the Irelena and you could get a Pita Gyros for your lunch at only €2.

we cannot wait to go back here and go to the same hotel!

also, take the island tour. it is brilliant.

Room Tip: all rooms were facing the road and so facing the sea.

another visit to Lassi - we went to Irilena to see everyone. We were staying elsewhere this time as the hotel was full when we tried to book but we went in every night for a drink and a nightcap. Aggis is very good at the cocktails and very friendly - he got me tipsy a few times.

Irilena fanny and Athena - the same as usually lovely lovely people who are very friendly and make the customers and guests feel very welcome. The hotel was just the same as last year spotlessly clean, modern and inviting. The Sky TV kept us up to date with the news at home and the atmosphere was excellent. We will be back hopefully to stay at the hotel which we know from previous visits is excellent. This is a family owned hotel and they are very very nice.

just returned from Irilena Hotel ,it was nice there , the hotel is on the main road in Lassi so no hills to climb we had a room at the front the road noise wasn,t a problem, but a dog over the road barked for most of the 2 weeks we stayed there the hotel owners were powerless to stop it and in no way could they be responsible for it but it was so annoying .the bed was comfy bedding lovely crisp white cotton and the towells were the fluffiest whitest I have had in greece really impressed' the lady who cleaned our room was really pleasant and friendly always cheerfull it was spotless there.the room was rather small 'but we were out most of the time and really only used it for a base
breakfast was rather bland but plenitfull thinly sliced french sticks, jams cheese and a garlic flavoured meat, yougurt , tinned peaches and a cereal like cornflakes and boiled eggs after the first couple of days it got rather boring so we stopped going down for it and chose to eat out .the owners and staff were very pleasant and friendly there were a lot of guests there who return year after year the bar prices were fair and again the sevice and atmostphere was very friendly
the hotel doesnt have its own pool but you can use the lorenzo pool just up the road 'the beaches in Lassi are so nice we never needed the pool and we had a car for most of our stay so we were out and about finding other nice places to vist
