“Great for a European hotel”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

Renting a car from the airport is a must. Parking the car is a free for all on the street, but the staff are very helpful to get you a close spot. I opted for a larger, 2 person room, though I was a solo traveler. The room was large enough for 1- 1 1/2 people, perfect for 1 person use to American hotels. Mattress was thicker than most European hotels. Good breakfast, though a lack of fruit. I noticed a few ants in the room. Not sure if bugs get worse during the summer.

I'd read the reviews for this hotel and had high hopes. I'm delighted to say it's as wonderful as everyone says. Lovely, big, comfortable room with views over the bay. Location is excellent, tucked just up a side street, 50m from the harbour where you can watch the fishermen bring in their catch and sell it straight from the boat, and 50m from the pedestrianised shopping street with lovely shops and restaurants, from where it's a short stroll to the main square. Nice choice for breakfast and excellent staff on reception who gave us lots of help researching bus times, car hire, recommending restaurants etc. We were made to feel very welcome and I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view over the bay. It's a beautiful sight to wake up to.

We stayed at the Mouikis Hotel for 3 nights and had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable stay. This hotel is IDEALLY located for the centre of town but is in a nice quiet area just off the harbour front. Everyone at the hotel is very pleasant and chatty and we were made to feel very welcome. Our room was on the top floor and overlooked Argostoli bay; what a fabulous view!! The room was excellent and had everything you could possibly need. The beds were super comfy and it was nice to have a flat screen TV with CNN and BBC News. The rooms look newly refurbished and were cleaned daily by a very nice smiley chambermaid. All in all I really can't fault this hotel and would highly recommend it. We hope to return with the family for a few nights in July.

Room Tip: 3rd floor rooms overlooking the lagoon have lovely large balconies

I was very pleasantly surprised when my family and I checked into this Hotel, rated very highly by Tripadvisor and now I know why. The price if requested direct from the hotel is far cheaper; half of what Booking.com suggests ,and this little surprise has it all - the friendliest and obliging of staff, a decent straight forward breakfast with great and cold orange juice, comfortable and spacious rooms with hard-enough beds for a decent night's sleep, a balcony with an amazing view of the harbour and opposite side of the island, very modernly kitted out yet functional and minimalist, decent water pressure, the most beautiful wall motif on carefully and tastefully selected wall paper and.....wait for it.....a mini-bar fridge that is actually cold!

The hotel is very central, less than 50 metres from the main shopping street, next to a pharmacy and two short blocks away from a central piazza (plateia in Greek) where it all happens on this island. In addition, it is one block away from the main harbour and walking distance to the local fresh produce and fish market.

This place, I highly recommend! The only thing missing is that there are no tissues in the room and no safe!

This was my first visit to Kefalonia. The hotel is ideally situated in the centre of Argostoli, with a lovely view of the harbour from our room. It is quiet, but within walking distance from some lovely restaurants and bars. The decor is modern and elegant, the staff are so welcoming,and no request, however unusual, is too much trouble. The rooms are clean, and well serviced daily, and as for the breakfasts, what a feast!! I cannot speak highly enough of the Hotel Mouikis, long may it prosper!

Such an amazing hotel i have stayed here before and i would not hesitate to stay again. So much to say about this hotel but what stands out the most is the quality for what your paying especially since it was fully renovated recently. The location is right in the heart of the town, walking distance to everything you could need and just around the corner to the main shopping street, and also the beach. In the end it would meet all ticks of what you would wont in your trip to this breath taking island. To top it all off you also have fantastic staff who speak fluent English and are very helpful in anything you may need. I stayed for almost 2 months and as much as it wasn't a holiday for me i would not have been comfortable any where else. Please come i cant say enough about it ooh and also the breakfast in the morning is yummy one of the best buffet i have had. I highly recommend it for singles, couples and family's.

This was my second stay at this Hotel in Argostoli.
My first visit was in November 2011, and I decided to return in December 2011 after an excellent stay on my first trip.
The owners and staff are extremely friendly and welcoming.
The breakfasts are buffet style of an excellent quality, with a wide choice from cereals, fruit and traditional Greek fayre.
The rooms are well presented and always kept clean.
I will stay again at this hotel, and can happily recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for room with balcony overlooking the lagoon.
