Reviewed 7 October 2017

I have been going to Elsa Hotel for too many years than I remember. Elsa and I are close friends. Doni The Barman is like a Brother to me and I am a friend of the Whole Family! What you get is a Clean Room (Maid Service most days) also BBQ Evening once a week, Greek Nights sometimes (when time allows) Value for money, Friendly Service. Snacks are Available as well as drinks from Morning till Close (as late as you stay) Do not go here if you are expecting A London Hotel - Greeks are basic and you have everything you need. You are on the Edge of Town so you have a lovely pretty view and is only 15 minute walk to Town. This Hotel is for people who like to enjoy their Holiday - Lovely Pool and Sunbeds and Bar. They like you to use the bar and they join in with your Holiday to make it even better. Also if you like to Relax this is Fine too.Do not go here if you are miserable. Everyone is Jolly here!!

Room Tip: Very Pretty, Great Location

Recently refurbished pool area providing sunbathing and shade as required. Pool bar providing simple but very good Greek fare and English breakfasts. For me the owners were very friendly and provided what we needed. There is only one maid and she has her work cut out dealing with 20 odd rooms alone. The rooms are basic and could do with some renovation and more storage but, having been a Grecophile for 30 years I have been in a lot worse. Would I go back again? have already booked for 2018.

Just returned from a two week stay at this hotel, and had a great time. The location was great for us even though there was a bit of a walk to the town but as we like walking it was no problem for us.
The rooms are basic but it is what we expect when we go to Greece. With regards to the cleanliness of the rooms, they were ok but certainly could have been better, the maid was not very thorough in fact she has to be the worst maid we have ever had. We found the staff of the hotel quite friendly but didn't really have much to do with them. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would go back.

The people and the hotel don't deserve not even a star .. very rude and unprofessional behaviour ! We were about to arrive to the hotel when we received a call that the room was not any longer available even if we had booked it through phone with Elsa. Do not choose this hotel ..

I've never been so glad to leave a place as I did on this holiday.
On our arrival we found the bathroom and shower curtain was covered in black mould and the kettle leaked. At the Welcome Party the next day we spoke to the Olympic Rep who said he would have a word with the owner.
We had asked him if we could move to another hotel or at least change the room. We were told this was not possible as everywhere was full.
He returned to tell us that the shower curtain was to be changed and we would get a new kettle. He said the owner was going to have a word with us.
The shower curtain was changed the next day but nothing was done about the bathroom mould or the kettle. I'm still wondering which person was the owner as they did not make themselves known to us.
The cleaning of the room the first week wasn't too bad. We had fresh towels and a change of bedding every other day. The second week I went to reception to ask if the room could be cleaned as it was the 3rd day without the bins being emptied. There was no one around and the barman wasn't very helpful. The cleaner shouted down from an upstairs balcony that she wouldn't be long. She emptied the waste bin but left the toilet bin full so I had to seek her out. That was the last day our towels were changed. My partners towel was raggy and had three holes in.
For this we had paid nearly £1600.
