Oh my God. If this isn't the worst hotel ever, I don't know what is.
I stayed in Argostoli because it was close to the airport, and the morning flight to Athens departs at 7am.
I rang ahead and booked, but they hotel had no record of my booking when I did arrive. This was just the start. The friently but scatty desk clerk eventually checked me in to what was quite a basic hotel room (you don't want to spend time in there if you can avoid it - ask for a room at the back for some quiet).
Due to the early start, I asked for a 5.30am wake up call. As a back-up I also set my mobile phone alarm. The alarm worked, but no wake up call. When I arrived in reception to check out, the staff member was SLEEPING ON THE COUCH! That explained the lack of wake-up call.
As I tried to check out, it appeared that the scatty clerk the day before had registered me against the wrong room number, so then an argument ensued about who was to pay for the other room I used! I had to practically wrench my passport off her and race to the airport.
I would not bother to stay here - there seemed to be perfectly nice places elsewhere, including the Hotel Ionian across the road and the Hotel Olga just behind the Mirabel.
Also, don't bother with Argostoli except for a conventient location to the hotel - it lacks charm and compared to other places in Keffalonia isn't the No 1 Greek island experience.
