“Wery friendly Hotell Crew !”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

The only negative thing at Leonidas was the bed. We missed a little more space in the kitchenette. The shower was not easy to use, it was not a craddle to hang up the shower with.
Summary it was a nice hotell, and the stuff was very kindely and helpful.

Reviewed 21 August 2011

We stayed at Leonidas in August 2011 and the hotel was absolutely a positive experience. We booked through an Internet agency, but booking directly would have even better as they had special Facebook offer.

We arrived after midnight and they had left us an introduction letter with instructions, key and remote for air condition at the reception desk. Surprisingly we got an apartment even though we booked a studio. The apartment was comfortable, a living room with couch, small breakfast table with two chairs, flat screen TV and a small kitchenette. The only thing we missed in the living room was a bin and a little more space in the kitchenette.

The bathroom was also quite nice, with a good shower and plenty of warm water. But as always we missed the possibilty to hang the hand shower up, but they tend to think the tourists use more water in that way. In the bedroom we had enough room to put the suitcases away (sometimes a problem). There was a mirror, dresser and even a hair dryer. The only negative thing at Leonidas was the bed, the mattress was really awful and I still suffer with back problems a few weeks later! We ended up sleeping one person in the living room and the other in the bed, because of the mattress.

The air condition was good, there was one in the living room and one in the bedroom and we decided to use both even though we had to pay a bit extra for the second one.

The room was clean and in good shape, the whole hotel was decorated just a few years ago. The towels were only to be changed once a week, but we found that they changed them a bit more often. The manager of the hotel is Norwegian, a big plus for us as she gave us a lot of good advice and she was always prepared for any questions. The manger himself was also very helpful even though he spoke little English. This was a family run hotel and one of his daughters were always there with him.

The hotel was in a very narrow street and only 50 meters from the main road and beach. It was the perfect location as it was very quiet. They served breakfast, but we never checked it out. Next year they will have pool installed in the garden.

We liked this hotel and I would not hesitate to go back, but if we go back we would ask for two single beds!

This is one of the very few places I feel that the photos correspond with reality.
