“Restful and convenient, friendly and very clean.”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

My wife and I stayed here for 2 weeks. We loved it so much we did not want to leave. A superb, quiet location that is so convenient to beaches, shops and restaurants. We experienced a problem with a lack of hot water, but as soon as I mentioned it to Effie in the bar she was on to it and very soon there was "no problem". All the staff are so welcoming, friendly and helpful. A real "Home from home". The room was superb with air con, shower, twin beds and a basic kitchen. What more do you want?? As it was our anniversary, they had placed some lovely flowers, a bottle of wine and some homemade marmalade in the room to greet us--a very nice touch!! Congratulations to owners and staff for doing a fantastic job on making our holiday so special.
----------------- WE WILL BE BACK. ----------------

From the moment that Effie met us at the top of the steps and we had a very good feeling about our stay and so it proved. We found the beds to be comfortable,the room a good size and the bathroom/shower to be fine.
The kitchen part was basic but met our needs. The view from the room looking over to the pool and gardens was easy on the eye and with the flowers out giving many colours.
From the Silo to the Lassi main road is about an 8 minute walk to where all the eating places are and the various beaches are close as well.
We enjoyed so much that we have already booked to go back next May 2014 and we hope that Effie and all the staff will also be there.

Room Tip: we liked being on the first floor.

we only do greece and her islands, the Silo is one of the best we've stayed at, we always try to
holiday at the start of may,not too hot but the weather can be changeable hot or cool.
Maria, the owner, is very particular with cleanliness and tidiness and Effie at the pool bar is a
lovely warm person whose poolside meals are excellent. The ambience is such that the clients
are relaxed and affable which makes for friendliness and good conversation.
We were so smitten we will return next year, Tim and Jackie. 7th-19th May 2013

Secluded but within easy walking distance of many good restaurants and bars, That said, there is no need to go off site as there is a good pool bar serving excellent food and drink at sensible prices and a basic mini-market for those essentials. The staff are EXCELLENT and nothing appears to be too much trouble. For us, Lassi was the perfect location to tour the island and Silo Apartments the ideal place to stay.

Stayed here for a week last September and looking back the whole experience now feels like it was a dream. The room was basic but by no means Spartan (!) and was spacious, airy and clean, with air-con available for a daily charge.

The apartments were set amid beautiful,lawned gardens, with plants and shrubs, grapevines and pomegranate trees providing a lush contrast to the incandescent Kefalonian sunshine.
As it was set back a good 10 minute walk from the main street, it retained a quiet, hazy, chilled–out charm which contrasted pleasantly with the relative bustle of Lassi.

We had breakfast at the poolside one morning which was nice enough, but didn’t eat there in the evenings as it was a little bit too subdued even for our laid-back tastes. A nice little shop was also on hand to sell a few basic essentials, in particular bottled water and the ubiquitous (and highly enjoyable) Robolla wine.

Lassi itself is a fairly charmless collection of supermarkets, tavernas and restaurants, with no real character of it’s own. However, we loved eating out there at a different restaurant every night, and it was nice to be surrounded by people obviously enjoying the beautiful food and amazing (cheap) wine. Special mention must go to the Logos Grand View Cocktail Bar – fantastic cocktails and a awe-inspiring view of the sun setting beyond Luxouri in the distance.

For us, the best thing about Silo was it’s proximity to some lovely quiet beaches, in particular, the wonderful Antonio Beach – a little ragged around the edges but so quiet and possessing that wonderful clear water that’s perfect for snorkelling. Spellbinding views across to Lixouri and the mountains beyond Argostoli as well. The Kalamia beach further along the Fanari road was even more secluded and tranquil.

We hired a car for 3 days (from the excellent Pefanis in Lassi) as we were determined to visit some of the iconic landmarks further north. Although the roads are fairly quiet, pretty much everywhere you’d want to go seemed to only be accessible via either sudden plunges down precipitous tracks or agonisingly convoluted sequences of hairpin bends. We’d pretty much abandoned the car by the end of the 2nd day of hire to give our nerves a rest. However, without it we would have missed the total sensory overload of Myrtos Beach and the dreamy tranquillity of Assos.

Kefalonia is a beautiful, laid back place and the Silo Studios was the perfect place to stay. I have lovely memories of our stay and wouldn’t hesitate in returning one day.

We have been to Kefalonia many times and have stayed at Silo on three occasions. We've been in June, July and August and always enjoyed our stay.

The rooms are very well equipped by Greek standards and have comfortable beds. The maids keep them very clean and some have baths not just showers. They have balcony areas if upstairs and patio areas if down. There is air con available at an extra cost, a safe, kitchenette with toaster, kettle and two ring stove. TV (although nearly all greek channels) and dressing table.

I would suggest a high room as you will not be disturbed by guests above you.

Outside the gardens are lovely and there are two pools and a pool bar. There is a neighbouring hotel called Thalassa and there are rules (apparently) about which pool you can use, but in working practice when we have visited they dont really mind. The pool bar is nice and although a little pricey all the food and drinks are nice.

In Kefalonia you are welcome to use most pools and pool bars as they are open to the public. We would thoroughly recommend a neighbouring pool bar called Marianna Studios which is on the main road next door to Supermarket Lassi and about 5 mins walk from Silo. Marianna is an excellent host and much friendlier and the menu and pool bar is definitely a must for english guests. Real sun trap as the Silo pool can be a little windy due to its high position.

Silo is a little more expensive than other hotels in the area but we have tried others and been disappointed and returned to Silo.

Lassi is a fab resort and has lots of choice of restaurants, shops, bars and beaches and is very close to Argostoli. If you head there, please visit Marianna's Studios for a dip in the pool and a Gyros with Mythos beer - you wont be disappointed. And we would also thoroughly recommend Captain Maki's Glass Bottom Boat Tour with Beach BBQ. An amazing day out which we have done 4 times! you and your family will love it.

Room Tip: Choose a high room

Me and my friend wanted to go on a holiday before the cold winter in Norway. We choose the Silo hotel and never regretted a second! It has everything you need; big room, great service, cold beer, pool and a lovely garden with olive trees and flowers.
It´s not far from Argostoli, the capital on the island, we took taxi (6euros).

Our room was on the ground floor, with a patio and a table and a couple of cheers. So lovely to sit there after a nice shower and read a book, listen to music and drink a cold beer.

I´m definitely going back to stay there, the best vacation ever!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the garden
