Reviewed July 22, 2008

Ok, so our stay was a year ago but after reading a couple of bad reviews about this hotel, I thought it was only fair to set the record straight!!! Seriously the things people moan about...u get what u pay for..if u want 5 star pay for 5 star!!!!

The hotel itself is pretty basic, with a lovely clean swimming pool. Rooms are cleaned everyday and our bed linen was changed a couple of times throughout the one week stay. We were also given plenty of clean towels to use. Ok they are not the most spacious or luxurious rooms/bathrooms going but like I said if you want 5 star then you have to pay for it. Who spends that much time in their room on holiday anyways!! There is a shop literally across the road and you are right on the strip of restaurants, so you really dont have to go far for a night out.

The food was good, although, apart from breakfast we didnt really eat there. Yes breakfast is basic but there is a good choice, its fresh, clean and plenty available! The views from the hotel are gorgeous. Although children are allowed in the hotel, its not noisy or rowdy.

The staff are fantastic. So friendly and helpful, they really will do as much as they can to help your stay be as good as possible. The girls on reception in particular were brillant. We were out most nights in Argostoli (the nearby town) but we stayed at the hotel a couple of nights. They do lay on some entertainment..the quiz night, even though we didnt think it would be that good, turned out to be a brilliant night!!

Lassi itself was gorgeous..very beautiful. Plenty of restaurants and bars (although i wouldnt recommend the chinese restaurant there) with gorgeous food and drinks. Again everyone very friendly. If you fancy something different or a bit more lively take a short taxi ride (about 5 mins, if that) or about a 25 min walk into Argostoli. Again plenty of restaurants and bars. There was one restaurant in the square in particular that we ate in 3/4 time but I cant remember the name...but every restaurant we ate in was good!

All in all a FANTASTIC holiday.. will definatley be returning to Lassi and Hotel Lorenzo!!

We stayed at the Apartments which were part of the Hotel. We weren't sure what we were going to get, but they were great. I would definitely stay again.
The apartments were spacious, dining room, small kitchen and bathroom, and then good sized bedroom, with doors on to decent sized balcony. Ours had a sea view as well!!
The fridge came in really handy for storing food and loads of water. Enough bits to eat brekkie and make sandwiches etc, but we didn't cook.
Perfect location, right in Lassi, and 10 mins walk from the beach.
The pool was really nice, although did get quite busy.
There are so many restaurants to choose from in Lassi, we went to a different one each night.
Worth hiring a car and seeing some of the island as it is beautiful.
Perfect holiday for chiling out, few drinks and nice meals, and sunbathing.
Some of the places play music until about midnight, but it wasn't loud enough to keep me awake.
Brilliant holiday, wish we had stayed for two weeks, not just one.

We stayed in the Lorenzo House Apartments which are within the grounds of the Lorenzo Hotel. We had a spaicous apartment with separate lounge, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom which was very handy with a 9 month old baby! Only slight downside was that apartments are adjacent to the main road through the resort, but are set back a fair way. The hotel itself is much further back from the road. Location is central for restaurants, bars and supermarkets. Pool was great too.

We have just returned from the Hotel Lorenzo after just 1 week and this was definately long enough!

We found the location very good, it was a 10 minute walk to a lovely beach and very central in Lassi to all the restaurants and bars.....also just a 25 minute walk or 5 mins in a taxi to the capital Agostoli.

BUT the staff here with the exception of the late receptionist who was very sweet and helpful were loud and rude. We were woken almost every morning to the brekfast staff, shouting out stuff like "we are here" at 8am and singing along to the cheesy radio tunes they had on full blast. Then one morning my boyfriend politely asked for two coffees and the lady made fun of his English accent, most morning's however they just grunted and acted like we were putting them out by being there. As the other reviews say - get ready for a very strange breakfast set up, you collect a tray and then tidy up afterwards....not much choice either!!! Also i would suggest going out when they have the DJ night on because this went on until at least 12:30 and the music was extremely loud, no consideration for the guests at all!!!! As you can imagine what with the late night and then being woken up at 7.30-8am we were extremely tired, it's not exactly what i'd call a relaxing holiday.

On a more positive note, the pool is nice.....but i can imagine now getting into the busy school holidays unless you are out before 9am you will struggle to get a bed.

Lassi is ok - we like the beach "Long Beach" lovely sand and very clear water. We found the restaurants very touch and go but Agostoli had some lovely restaurants - definately try Portside on the front the food was lovely & very big portions, also good wine -try the Brilliante!

I'd go back to Kefalonia as it is a beautiful island, not the Hotel Lorenzo though.

Booked the Lorenzo from the Thomson website.
We booked the lorenzo because of it;s proximity to the resort & beaches. the first impression was pretty good considering it was 2* + The staff were really helpful & freindly and the reception area & bar seemed ok.
The room was a bit smaller than what we have been used to in greece but again 2* + seemed about right. The bathroom on the other hand was, putting it bluntly no bigger than an airing cupboard, you could not sit on the toilet properly because of the proximity of the sink,you had to "side saddle" and the shower was just the tray area plus a few tiles, basicaaly no room to swing a cat. Nice pool area though, but we like to go to the beach which was about a twenty minute walk.
Air conditioning was payable at reception as was the safety deposit box, satelite t.v showing sky news & bbc world service.
The exchange rate was great at hte Lorenzo At home it was £1 =1.22 Euros, we had £1 =1.26, Iadvise ti change money when you get there. there was no problem day or night

The resort of Lassi is great with plenty of bars & restaurants along the strip most are in great setings, Kefalonia is a beautiful island with a zero crime rate, very safe island.I advise you hire a car & explorethe island. 80 Euro's for 2 days through Thomson rep. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable holiday with the Lorenzo hotel a good base for your basic needs.
Incidently, the room one of the previous reveiwers said he was moved to but didn't like was the room we stayed No 236.

Just arrived back from a week's holiday in Lassi in Kefalonia (Kaffilinia, Cephalonia) where we stayed on the second floor of the Hotel Lorenzo.

We had an absolutely wonderful time and we found the hotel staff very friendly (in fact, most people who worked in Lassi were incredibly friendly), the hotel clean but basic, but the beds were horrendous. Although saying that, apart from staying in a 5 star hotel, I've rarely experienced comfort in the bed department.

The breakfast was disappointing but at least we were able to take it to the room rather than eat in the 'dining' room that lacked any sort of atmosphere.

We rarely stayed around the pool but when we did eat there, we found the food very good compared with the standards in the rest of Lassi.

I agree with the review above that stated what a shame it was that the hotel didn't make more of its location, maybe by offering a barbeque night etc.

We spent most days on the Makris Yalos beach (Greek for long beach), where the sea was clean and clear and the food at the beach restaurant was fine.

Would we return? Well.......there are so many places to see around the world that it would be difficult to say, but we certainly enjoyed our week and would recommend it to anybody.

Arrived at the Hotel Lorenzo and we were greeted by a really friendy lady on reception. We stayed in room 225 which is ideally away from the lift's and reception with a lovely seaview. The room was very clean ,the bed's were comfy and the bathroom was small but very clean. The pool area is very highly maintained and the pool bar is cheap and served nice snack's at lunchtme. Never went in to the hotel bar at night time we just headed out into Lassi. The room's are cleaned everyday and the towel's were changed a couple of time's during the stay. All the walk way's within the hotel are also very clean. Breakfast was ok ,greek yoghurt,honey, bread,cheese ,fruit etc again everything was fresh and clean. The hotel is a stone's throw from Lassi centre, has a supermarket over the road and is a short walk downhill to Meditteranee Beach which is nice 8 euro's for a brolly and bed's. Lassi is very much purposed built so don't expect any Greek charm. Ate in most restaurant;s in Lassi Sirtaki was lovely the first time but a bit off the second but Greece was playing in the Euro 2008 that night ! Phaedra was lovely but they did rush you a bit., one in one out etc but I would recommend these two restaurnt's. Argostoli is really nice and here you begin to see what the island has to offer ,ate in Argostoli near to the harbour was amazing load's of Greek's eating in there which let's you know the food's good. Loads of bar's around the main square really nice but pricey. Don't normally do trip's but the Island Tour is great booked through Etam Travel. If you think that Lassi is Kefalonia think again! On the tour you vist load's of gorgeous place' s including Fiscardo the St Tropez of Kefalonia and the cave's and lake and Robola Winery which is really interesting and you can buy there new organic wine there. Overall lovely holiday and hotel but make sure you venture out of Lassi it is just a strip of bar's, shop and supermarket's with the odd car rental place thrown in !
