Has anyone got an email address for IRILENA HOTEL in Kefalonia please. Cheers Colin
This lovely hotel is great value for money and we have stayed here five times. Excellent location with bars, tavernas and beaches close by. Attractive , spotlessly clean rooms with really comfy beds and proper
We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Kefalonia and one of the highlights was our hotel Irilena. The owner Athina, her daughter Irilena and Athina's sister Anna were amazing people. They were like our second family away from home. They were so kind, generous and helpful. The hotel was very clean and modernly decorated. The location was perfect. Its a 5 minute walk from the best sandy beaches and a hugh selection of restaurants and bars. The hotel Irilena also has a bar where most of the guests would gather in the evenings for a drink. We made so many friends at the hotel and we will definitely return very soon. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends as it is so clean, has amazing owners and was so relaxing and in the best location. Its a 5 minute taxi ride into the main town of Argostoli and only 15 minutes from the airport. Ignore the 2 star rating on this hotel as it is definitely worth more than that. Overall rating: Excellent
Just got back from the Irielena Apartments and can honestly say I would never stay in them ever again. They have to be the worst accommodation I have ever stayed at in Greece. Granted the views are fantastic even the outside is adequate but inside is horrible. We were told we had a 2 bedroom apartment!! It had beds in two rooms but it definitely was'nt an apartment. The air con only did one bedroom (cost us 45 Euros per week) The kitchen was a room that had a piece of plasterboard between ourselves and next door to separate it into two rooms (it was'nt even a room more of a corridor). We have stayed in two star accommodation before in Greece but this is never a two star a one star at a push. As for the shower that I read on another review that was SO powerful, it might have been in 2005 but in 2008 its obviously worn out never to be replaced. Being in Kefalonia more than made up for the naff accommodation and we only put up with it because your not in it that often.
Have just arrived back from a great week in Lassi, staying at the Hotel Irilena. Owned by Athena and her daughter Irilena, this is a lovely hotel - spotlessly clean and very welcoming. It has everything you need except a pool, but the fantastic beach is not very far (although down a hill once down no need to come back up - restaurants and bars by the beach) and there is a pool that can be used just across the road. The road is very busy, so a room at the back is preferable. These look out onto the garden and have a very pleasant view from the balcony - very nice to have a drink on in the evening. The room has a fridge but no kettle and the air conditioning is worth every penny extra.
The breakfast is adequate - self service - bread, cheese, marmalade, eggs, juice, tea, coffee. The same every day - could do with a little variety.
The resort is very clean and has lots of very good restaurants. Not noisy (no clubs) - no gangs of youths.
Perfect for a peaceful holiday. Everything goes by GMT (Greek Maybe Time).
just returned from 2 weeks at the irilena hotel. we booked this at the very last minute and took the only available hotel we could find. we are so glad we ended up there. as others have mentioned, the hotel is owned by athena and her daughter irilena who are both absolutely lovely. athensa's sister anna sup**vises the breakfast - she is really nice too and always has a beaming smile first thing in the morning. a special mention too for olga the girl that works behind the bar 3 or 4 nights a week. she is amazingly funny and became a good friend.
Got home on tuesday 19th Sep. Stayed for two weeks (Room 15). Here we go...... The Hill is a killer! But when you see the view worth the hike!!
Just got back (10th Sept). The apartments were adequate, the utensils were the very basics you need, but what can you expect from self catering. Half of the time you eat out anyway. The hill up to the apartments is a killer, but when you see some of the roads up to the other apartment complexes you don't have much to complain about. Views from the patio / balcony were very good. Any problems were dealt with straight away by both the rep and the owner "Spiros". Can't complain. If you want the Ritz, book in at the Ritz.
Would def stay here again we realy liked it and the staff were so nice.
Irilena was a very beautiful hotel. The rooms wer nice and comfortable.
Just returned from a week in the Irilena Hotel. It was the fourth time we had been to Lassi but the first in this Hotel. It was a great place to stay. Very clean and the staff were lovely. Breakfast was a bit 'samey' but it was cheap enough to go elsewhere a couple of days. We didn't know the hotel was airconditioned either which came in handy. Recommend the pools at either the Marianna Apartments (across the road) or the Malibu (on the way to Antonios beach).
Myself and my partner are going to Kefalonia on the 5th September. We are staying at the Irelini apts in Lassi! Has anyone stayed there? We have a maisonette. What is that like?! Is the hill really that bad??!! Basically, all I want to know is if it's clean! We're not expecting too much!!
Got back yesterday having stayed at the Irelena apartments for a week and that was enough. If the apartments were slightly more updated and more importantly cleaned thoroughly it would have been more pleasant. Yes the hill is steep and wouldn't suit many people but you have the most incredible views and the outside of the apartments are very pretty. Really would like to say they are nice inside too but they just aren't! (although the air conditioning worked well).
Just got back from 2 weeks at the Irilena Hotel in Lassi. We were very impressed, and although we were on the ground floor adjacent to the road we had no trouble sleeping. The room was very comfortable, cleaned daily and linen changed twice a week. Breakfast was a bit repetitive, but you can always pop into one of the tavernas for a change. Long beach is only about 5 minutes away and is a lovely sandy beach, with reasonably priced sunbeds and lovely clear water. The hotel staff were very friendly, and on the last day you have the use of full shower facilities situated in the basement - this was great seeing as our flight was at midnight. If we ever go back to Kefalonia then this is the hotel I would chose.
Me & me fella have just come back from Iri-Elena (Irilena) apartments in Lassi (06/06/06) and we found it very nice and a good place to stay. It is small and basic but clean and well looked after, with regular fresh sheets and towels, & it is cleaned and the rubbish is taken out daily. The hill is only short about 2 mins from top to bottom and it is in an ideal location with all the tavernas & bars of Lassi 5 mins to the left & Argostoli a 10-15 min walk to the right. If you're in one of the higher up rooms you get a fantastic view from your balcony & windows and a lovely breeze even on hot days. The only thing that was a bit of a pain was the shower cos it's a bit small, but you're only in there for 15 mins a day so who cares eh?
Iri-Elena are nice apartments. Just don't go expecting five star. Some of the apartments are a bit small.The accommodation is basic and clean, the views are amazing. The walk up the hill is fine unless you have SERIOUS fitness/mobility issues. Local shops grand, nearest beach Gradakia really pleasant and not too far.
we stayed at irelena last july, we really enjoyed ourselves , my husband is dissabled, we had a lovely room at the back of the hotel, staff very friendly and really looked after us.we are going again this year 13th June - 27th June cant wait to see everyone, the room we had was on the ground floor idealy suited for my husband it was clean,beds changed frequently drinks were very moderate, good atmosphere lots of people come for drink who are not staying there we met a lot of nice people
FANTASTIC APARTMENTS. GREAT VIEW OF THE BAY AND SUNSET. SUN ON PROPERTY ALL DAY LONG.
We have just returned from 1 week in kefalonia August 2005.The weather was lovely, the Island beautiful, we spent most of our time at the beach. Also 2 pools you can use any of the local hotel pools which is great they are all within walking distance. The ressturants were all good very friendly and accomadating where the children were concerned. The hotel was verygood the usual basic Greek hotel breakfast was fine, the only complaint if any was, if your room at front of hotel is next to Lassi road which was very busy and noisy at times especially Saturday nights.
