“April Sun”
Reviewed 29 April 2013

We stayed for four nights at the end of April and had a fantastic time. We had a double room overlooking the sq. Good size, modern bathroom. The staff are wonderful, price amazing, bfast relaxed (until 11) and service impeccable.
I would recommend as near Lassi Beach, but in Argostoli so no need for a car

Hotel very good, excellent position, staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. Stayed Xmas eve and Xmas night. Will use again and would recommend to anyone staying in Argostoli. Within easy reach of all the resorts on the south coast and only 50 mins from Fiscardo in the North. Car needed if you want to travel about. Hotel has private car park at the rear, which makes life really easy.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front look over the main square, we didn't find it noisy. Can sit on the balcony a...

Stayed for one night and we thought the hotel was very nice. Room had a view of the square and room was of a high standard. Only criticism was that the cable tv only had 1 British channel and yet the Brits must be the popular tourist! Breakfast is a buffet one with no hot food but was fine for my wife & I. I would recommend this hotel and we would go back if we return to Kefalona.

Ionian Plaza Hotel sits in a wonderful location, right in front of the main square in Argostoli, where you can find plenty of reasonably affordable restaurants with good food(ask the kind,friendly receptionist for advice!), bars, some clothing shops, pharmacy, post office, etc.

What makes this heartwarming for my partner and I was the amount of help and advice from the receptionist, who is so accommodating. We took a bus from Athens to Patra(3hrs), and then hopped on to the ferry to Sami(3hrs). Upon reaching Sami, we realised we were stranded at the port as the bus have left and the nearby car rental shops have no availability for cars. We called the hotel and immediately, they arranged a radio taxi for us. I mean, there might be some that might actually tell you to find your own ways and stuffs. Upon reaching the hotel, check-in was very smooth and neat, and she started giving us help on the places to visit, places to eat at, and sorted out our car rental with really good efficiency.

Room wise, ours were at the end of the corridor, along the width of the hotel, overseeing the side road where little stalls were set up in the evening. Room is fantastically clean, modern, adequate with the necessities, with a small balcony for you to sit down in the night with a pack of chips and a bottle of beer. Awesome. Bathroom is dry as well, though shower place is a little small. WIFI signal is good, just remember to get a new password from the receptionist everyday. Breakfast is pretty standard, nothing bad about it. You have a free carpark to park your rented car as well. Of course, about the noise level that reviews before mine have shown, unless you are really noise-sensitive or a really light sleeper, this hotel will be just fine.

All in all, this is a good, comfortable modern hotel, with extremely helpful staffs, and ideally located. Recommended for all.

Reviewed 29 July 2012 via mobile

The hotel is centrally located. A 10 minute walk to the bus station, and 5 minute walk to bus stop which takes you to Lassi beach. Service is very good, rooms are spacious and clean but received two single beds instead of a double as requested. As we are getting rather used to this in Greece it is not so much of an issue but good to be aware of this to avoid disappointment. Room had a balcony with chair and table overlooking the main square which was lovely. it hasn't been too noisy compared to what we were expecting from previous reviews read, but the main noise seemed to be coming internally from the tiled corridor with guests talking very loudly and room doors closing. There is free wifi although you need to obtain new log ins and passwords daily and different log in for each wireless device you use. The biggest disappointment was the breakfast which really should be the type of breakfast you would have at a two star hotel. It was very basic and underwhelming. Premium Restaurant across the road though has great food and delivers if you require. We would stay here again but the main reason we rated it 3 was due to the poor breakfast provided, if the breakfast was good it would've been a 4 rating.

Helpful staff and nice rooms. Average breakfast. Most important thing, because of the location, it is noisy. And also, once again in Argostoli, no real control of the air-conditioning. It can be turned on only after a certain hour. Overall, a nice hotel.
