“Rude personnel, Rude owner”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014

It amazes me how some hotel owners think they can get away with rudeness just because their hotel enjoys a good location -making them believe that they will always have a steady clientele.

The hotel enjoys a very good location. You can park your car in the nearby streets and forget about it, cuz you can practically walk like anywhere from there.

Other than that, the rooms are OK in size, but with really old furniture. 70s style. With lousy bathrooms. The breakfast is average, but they have good coffee -thank God for small favors.

Do NOT request for a triple room, unless the third person is up to 14-15 years old. The third "bed" is actually a couch about 4 inches wide that can only accommodate a kid. I actually had a 15 minute conversation about the third BED, and they kept reassuring me that it was indeed a real bed, only to find out that it was a couch that only a child could sleep in.
Lies will get you absolutely NOWHERE...

A hotel we chose rather randomly. Surprisingly good price. Small room, small bathroom, small terrace, nice reception service. In front of the room we had another building, but above it we could see the fortress on the hill in front, splendid illuminated at night.

Room Tip: ask a room with a view to the fortress.

Navplio has so much to see if you are interested in old sites and the hotel Elena is perfect as a base. Rooms are ok but noisy in the mornings when the rubbish is collected. As in most Greek hotels the bathroom is cosy and the shower just big enough. However the brekkie is good and the staff are always most helpful. This is my third visit and I will use the hotel again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the west side are noisy

Elena Hotel its not a five star hotel, but offers clean, comfortable and affordable accommodation. Perfectly located, in the shopping center and only 5 minutes walking to the old city of Nafplio. Εasy parking around the hotel, did not even have to move our car. Good air conditioning in the room. Friendly and helpful staff. Satisfactory breakfast. Ask if they have availability on the upper floors-some rooms have spectacular views of the castle of Palamidi!!! See you next time!!!

been in the property multiple times in the past and I have only good times to remember. After the refurbishing it is just becoming better n better ! Warm welcome provided by the family running the hotel, greek hospitality and small tips to enjoy this beautiful city at it's best. The orange pie in breakfast... simply unforgettable !

Situated with only a 5 minute work into the centre of Nafplion, Hotel Elena offers, clean, comfortable and affordable accomodation. Our price included breakfast which was not great and I'd suggest that if you can have breakfast outside.

Room Tip: Don't bother about breaky

A good location if not staying in the old town, only a few minutes walk away. Very clean, comfortable & good for the price, a few toiletries provided too. Wifi signal was excellent from our room & we were lucky enough to have a castle view.
