The hallways are shabby, the rooms as well, the hotel in general shows signs of neglect. Housekeeping are terrible at it, and the same goes for the reception and waiters.

The view is nice if you're lucky enough to get a room with a sea view, but you cannot enjoy it on friday and saturday evenings as those rooms' balconies overlook the hotel open roof restaurant with extremely loud traditional bad music and extremely loud patrons.

Will not be visiting in the future.

Spacious rooms, very clean . Next to the sea, with swimming pool where you canhave late night drinks ( clublike poolbar). Close to the city. The meeting rooms were convenient and big. The staff was polite and willing to help and service us.

First of all, if arriving by car please ensure to ignore the Tripadvisor and Google maps which are incorrect. We drove to Kalamata and arrived at night in holiday hell at the wrong end of Navarinou St ie the city centre end, which was like Magaluf-gone-mad, and thought we had booked the wrong hotel. In fact the street numbering does not exist at the other end, and there is no number 2, so the hotel made their address up. Simply approach along the coast from the East and IGNORE the town, as you will never find a parking space! Panic over and stress levels rapidly dropping, we located the Elite City easily once we were at the right end of the beach, from its blue rooftop sign. It is within 30 mins walk/10 mins drive of the busy night-life (again, do not attempt to drive into centre at night during August unless on scooters!).
The hotel is simply great and we would echo all of the other reviews. We stayed 3 days and were treated to superb a la carte food, sumptuous buffets, huge breakfast choice (hot and cold) with fresh fruits. All nights had live modern Greek music.The reception is modern and luxurious, with lots of bright lounge area indoors to retreat from the heat and sun. Rooms are pleasantly modern, high quality and there are both wi-fi and pcs with internet, for those needing to stay connected. Helpful reception and friendly restaurant staff are there to help you at every turn. The busy beach is not reserved to the hotels along this section as you proceed from the outskirts of town, but mainly the clientele is from each adjacent hotel. Elite City is the second from last hotel before you leave the city boundary and this is not a built up area at all, unlike the part we arrived in. One additional point - it rained just once whilst we were in the outside restaurant, which has a huge sliding roof to keep people and chairs dry. Staff quickly went into action to remove cushions and take down the large parasols elsewhere - unlike the Ipanema bar up the road at the inferior Filoxenia, where the planked roof leaked like a sieve and the whole bar was left unusable with water everywhere. The Elite City was the best located and best hotel experience we saw in Kalamata - once eventually found.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main hotel building are just as good as the villas and are very quiet - no road noise.

A hotel with emphasis on quality and service.

What is really impressive, is the fact that a city hotel is situated on a well-organized beach, great for swimming, within walking distance from city center. Located right on the beach, one can take long walks by the seaside, just where Kalamata's night life takes off. Excellent cuisine, kind staff, clean rooms. What else could you ask for? Actually, there is something missing. Kids activities/playground etc are non existent.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the main building to ensure sea view, and easier access to bar restaurant and the...
