“So wonderful”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Just got back to overcrowded London and wish I could have stayed in Kefalonia much longer.

Hardly any tourists. Peace and quiet. Turtles popping up their heads when you watch them from the Tourist Hotel balcony.

Secret place to relax.

I had an excellent stay for nearly two weeks at this hotel while my husband was in hospital. The cleanliness was excellent as was the breakfast and the staff. The staff were extremely kind and very helpful and I could recommend this hotel to anyone.

The hotel has great advantages:
1. Located at the town center of Argostoli on the island of Kefalonia, next to the central square and in front of the picturesque harbor. One may move on foot to all Argostoli. Parking is also available by the streets nearby.
2. Very very clean rooms, spacious WC with a huge room for shower.
3. Great breakfast, home-made, with several traditional Greek food.
4. The stuff is great, helpful, very polite, and most of all, with an honest smile.
5. One can easily have a quick snack, beer, coffee, ice-cream, after coming back from the beach.
6. Very close to some magnificent beaches.

I cannot find disadvantages. A great town hotel for those who want to combine quality and good price.

Good location, exellent breakfast and friendly staff.
Three components of a great vacation :-)

Very close to the port and the bus stop to the Platis Yialos beach.
Nearby are many restaurants, supermarkets and fruit markets.

Tourist hotel is seaside of the gorgeous argostoli town, that has numerous gorgeous restaurants and shops. The main square is quite pretty and has a buzzing nightlife. The rooms are quite tight but our balcony was amazing! It was quite large with a cute couch and table and a great view. The breakfast was great catering for all.

We stayed for 3 nights and had the best room in the hotel, we think...the corner room on 1st floor with balcony.. Beautiful breakfasts, personally made cappuccinos, coffee or teas of your choice and lovely fresh fruit to finish. Very friendly family who own and run the hotel. Exquisitely decorated. What more could you ant? Only perfect weather which we had :-)

Room Tip: 1st floor room with corner balcony is great :-) Wonderful view and quiet.
