Kalypso Hotel
Ranked #59 of 77 Hotels in Lefkada
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Owned by the same owners of this hotel, an option closer to the beach than the hotel are the two apartments by the sea. For 60 EUR/night you get a nice spotless clean apartment, with 4 times a week cleaning service, a great and big outdoor terrace and all the basic amenities you will need, such as equipped kitchen, bathroom towels, soaps and shampoos, paper towels etc.

It is 40m2 that are well used up, we were there with two young children and we didn't feel crammed or uncomfortable at any time.

Few downsides though:
- the location is not approachable by a vehicle, meaning that you will have to drag your luggage up and down the steep pedestrian street;
- no WIFI or any internet;
- the bedroom didn't have an outdoor window but one overlooking the internal staircase;
- in order to get to the apartment, you need to pass through two very busy cafes, with 5 cm distance between tables. You can imagine our mutual frustration every time we had to go somewhere with our baby stroller;
- the A. Nikitas beach is very popular and gets crowded quite fast, so you need to install your beach towels early in the morning. Nonetheless, towards noontime there will be someone laying right next to you, with no space to throw a needle between the two of you;
- a large rock casts a big shadow on the beach after 17.30, so consider finding another beach to soak up some nice afternoon sun. Pefkoulia is close by and is quite nice and chilled, as opposed to the overrated Kathisma, also within reach.

Parking is also a problem, but the good owners give you a key of their parking lot, which is on the hilltop, so again plenty of walking which could be a problem, especially if you are loaded with shopping bags or two sleepy children.

Agios Nikitas is a small but vibrant little village, with lots of content such as restaurants, cafes, shops, markets etc. We went to many places on the island and jointly concluded that we wouldn't want to be situated anywhere else in Lefkada but the Kalypso Apartments.

Lefkada is beautiful island with turquoise sea and beautiful beaches... this family hotel is on very good position in the centre of Agios Nikitas near 3 most popular beaches..in the area is a lot of taverns and clubs with different contents. What surprised me most is hospitality people in the hotel, warmly recommend lovers of beautiful beaches and delicious food :) ps. you need car on this island :)

We spent 7 nights (July 2013) at Kalypso Hotel - our first visit in Lefkada.
The thing that we valued most there was the quiet and the peace that surrounded us. You can leave the balcony opened and in the same time to sleep like a baby.
Although the furniture and the facilities are not new, but refurbished - the room is clean: the maids clean the rooms every day, change the towels every 2 days, and during the week we stayed there they changed the sheets once.
The room has a refrigerator, a hob and a small sideboard with some dishes.
Regarding the facilities: the room had air conditiong, and a small and old TV with a few programms.
We had a room with sea view, with a table and two chairs on the balcony.
The hotel has a bar with a terrace (sunny place, with sea view) and a veranda (shaded by vines) where you can have breakfast. Regarding the breakfast - I can say that this was a dissapointing aspect: every morning (for one week) they served the same thing and in very small portions. When we will return, if we will have this option, we won't choose an offer that includes breakfast
Overall, for a 2* hotel it offers very good accommodation facilities.

Just got back home after a two-night stay in Kalypso Hotel. Not so happy about it. Yes it is inexpensive (that was originally the reason I booked) but I believe I should have paid a little more and stayed in a decent accomodation.
The rooms are dated, the bed hard like a rock and the airconditioning inadequate. The TV was so old and the fridge made a horrible noise, really annoying during sleep.
Breakfast was a joke! Totally unacceptable for any hotel. It didnt worth the extra euros we paid per day.
By the way no hotel reception after 11 p.m. and no room service. Do yourself a favor and book somewhere else...

Room Tip: Book somewhere else...If you are desperate just skip the breakfast. It will save you 10 Euros.
