“Cheap, Cheerful & Very Friendly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2008

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Hotel Poseidon and as a base for a break I find it difficult to recall any serious shortcomings.

Room was spotless and cleaned daily. Towels and bedlinen were changed twice during the week and the room had obviously been re-decorated very recently. Air con, fridge, TV, safe, all included at no extra cost. View from the balcony was stunning and a small beach, literally across a very quiet road. Not the best beach by any means but for an early morning or late afternoon dip, adequate.

Only a 10 minute walk into town to catch the ferry to Argostoli or to enjoy an al fresco meal, (try Zorba's Taverna....superb traditional food).

Downside? A little too quiet (undeservedly so). Breakfast fare was a little repetetive but traditionally Greek. Breakfast is not of huge importance to them. Family owned and run and, come on guys, how many hotels have you stayed in where the owner and her daughter kiss you goodbye?

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2007

Upon booking this hotel we where assured that central heating was provided. When we arrived we realised there was no such thing (at least not operational).when we complained to the manager/owner regarding that issue, we where given a portable mini heater which we where told not to leave open for too long!
The owner was very unwilling to assist us and quite rude I might say.
Since it was quite cold we left the heater on and went out for a drink.
Upon returning to the hotel(which by the way has no 24 hour reception,you need to have a cell phone and call the lady that owns the place in order to get in the hotel) the owner told us that while walking the corridor she felt (!) heat coming out of our room and went INSIDE the room to switch off the mini heater.
Another issue was the hot water flow in the shower,well actually there was no flow whatsoever,the water was hot but it was just drops of it.
I also feel the need to mention that we did not get any form of receipt when we paid and checked out.
I would recommend to any fellow traveler avoiding this hotel at all costs,I know that there are campsites in cephalonia with better facilities than this place.
