Malemi Hotel is situated in the heart of Lesvos. Just 500 m. From the traditional fishing town of Skala Kallonis, Malemi Hotel is an ideal location from where one can set off on various activities and travel around the island. The hotel was named after the initials of the names of the owner's George Kapsalis three daughters. This family-run hotel was set up in the late 80's and since then it hasn't stopped developing. Our goal at Malemi Hotel is to make you feel as comfortable as at home and at the same time serve you discreetly but essentially. There is an interesting diversity of people who are attracted in Malemi. In spring and autumn all the pure essence of birdwatching in Lesvos is here. Malemi Hotel has been a popular birdwatching destination for more than a decade. People from all over the word, both amateur and proffesional nature lovers, have been visiting us repeatedly and have been using the hotel as a base for their activities and research. The bird-log is here, the repeaters & the proffesionals who guide the >, all the information that one can need will be talked through during the dinner at Malemi. For more information about birdwatching in Lesvos and other eco-activities see our special section in this site. In the summer there are those who want to enjoy the sun, the pool, the facilities for the kids and the popular beach destinations around the island of Lesvos. There are also others that combine summer holidays with seminars and research and they choose Malemi for its peace, quietness as long with its facilities. Whatever your purpose is for visiting Lesvos, you are more than welcome! The > Family

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just arrived back from a week in Melemi hotel where my friend and I stayed and had a really enjoyable, relaxing week. This lovely traditional Greek hotel is walking distance to the beach and also to the small fishing village of Skala Kallonis where there are restaurants, bars and shops. From its central position on the island of Lesbos, visiting nearby resorts was very easy and worthwhile. Car hire was very cheap and can be organised easily by the hotel. The hotel itself is charming and everyone is made to feel very welcome by the amazing family who own the hotel and put their heart and soul into it. The room was comfortable with a small fridge, free safe, air conditioning and clean bedding. There is a nice swimming pool with loungers and pool bar. There is a table tennis table, snooker table, tennis court and a lovely area outside the restaurant where it is nice to sit and chat. The hotel grounds are filled with fruit trees and much of the tasty food provided is made from food produced within their own grounds. The kids will love the play area, fish pond and the many animals that are kept in the grounds. This is a wonderful family run hotel which I would defiantly recommend. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

The hotel is run by George, his wife Effy and his daughter Micky supported by friendly and efficient staff. All the rooms re comfortable but we generally upgrade to one of the suites - which we did again on our 5th stay this September. The Malemi has everything that you need for a relaxing holiday including a large swimming pool and a smaller shallow one for children, tennis courts, table tennis and two bars

The food is fabulous with a wide and varied buffet breakfast and the evening meals ae also buffet style with masses to choose from and excellent quality. The herbs and many of the vegetables are grown organically by the hotel.

At the rear of the hotel Dimitri (George and Effy's son in law) looks after a large collection of animals and birds - almost a zoo!

The rooms are clean and bright and during our 2 week stay, the towels and bed linen was changed 6 times!
The Malemi Hotel was the first hotel to cater for birdwatchers and general naturalists in Lesvos and remains the first choice. It is only 200 metres from the beach and within easy walking distance of Kalloni pool and the Christou estuary. The salt pans are a little further but still within walking distance.

We have had a week in the amazing Malemi Hotel in Skalla Kalloni. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the food is exceptional, both breakfast and dinner. The owner simply goes “the extra mile” to make sure your stay is perfect. Nothing is too much trouble and if you want a comfortable relaxing holiday look know further than the Malemi Hotel, you will not be disappointed 10/10

Now on our last night, and what a great relaxing week we've had.
This is a great place to relax and unwind.
The pool is quite large with enough space for the sunloungers.
There is a small bar next to the pool which serves most drinks you could possibly want.
They had no Malibu when we asked, but within an hour there it was.
Now that's service.

Food.
Pretty much all home produced from the smaller holding that the family owns.
Really tasty dinners, different every night.
Breakfast was more the usual cereal, breads, croissants, eggs, cooked ham, cheese, ham.
The same every day, although you'd never go hungry.

Room.
Fairly comfortable.
We were lucky as it was our wedding anniversary and we were upgraded to a larger room.
An unexpected surprise was the free air-conditioning and the free safe in the room.
Why can't all hotels have this?

Owners/Staff.
This is a family run concern.
Young Micky seems to take on most of the responsibility on her broad shoulders, reception, life guard, bar tender, front of house, and does a fantastic job.
Really nothing is too much trouble.
Dad, George, tends to look after the admin side of things, but is always very welcoming.
The grounds are well kept by the groundstaff.

The family keep a number of animals on site, goats, horses, llama, deer, and many many caged birds.

Location.
As has previously been said, it is only 2/3 minutes walk to the beach and a further 6/7 to the village centre.
Here you'll find a mini-market and 6 or 7 tavernas, and an ice cream parlour

All in all we would highly recommend this hotel.

Just back from great fortnight at the Malmemi. After some issue with toilet on arrival we were offered chance to move rooms. This turned out to be an even nicer room with pool views. The Malemi sells itself as a traditional, family run hotel and delivers in spades. The whole family appear to be involved from George and Effi, daughter Micky and even 9 year old granddaughter Effi who works hard in pool bar. There is a small menagerie at back of hotel featuring a variety of animals and birds. Most of the vegetables served at dinner are homegrown. The food is very traditional home cooking and plentiful and very high quality,
20 minute walk to harbour with selection of tavernas and bars, couple of minimarts and bakers (which sells great selection of pies).Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing break with a traditional, authentically Greek feel

Just came back from a lovely holiday with my wife and 2 kids. The food was really good, even better was the amazing hospitality of the owner, his wife, daughter and the rest of the family.
My kids loved the playground, the animal and that the beach and village where close enough to walk, but far enough to be away.

Please don’t waste your money on this hotel, as it is nothing like the pictures.
Our biggest problem with this hotel was the cleanliness. The bedding and towels were change during our 10 night stay, but to my knowledge no other cleaning was done.
Upon arrival the room looked dated and scruffy, but we were determined to put that to one side and enjoy our holiday. However the longer we were there it became apparent the state of the room was more than just tired, it was dirty and unclean the more you looked.
The only things going for this hotel were the staff and evening meals were nice.

We had a most enjoyable stay. The staff are really welcoming, the accommodation spacious although the bathroom was a little tired and due a refurb but everything was very clean. Fridge, kettle and safe in the room. Meals were excellent both breakfast and dinner and even when there were only a few guests the choice at the buffet was excellent. It’s a10 minute walk along the front to the harbour similar to other hotels in distance. We would definitely consider a return .
