Great value for money, lovely breakfast, good location. Kalavrita is a fantastic town and the Helmos Hotel was very centrally located. Its a little dated but we liked the old charm. Finding the hotel and parking was also easy.

Conveniently located, a beautiful building, but dated very average rooms, and a dining area out of the forties. Breakfast buffet was adequate, and the staff was present but somewhat uninterested. The rooms were clean and the bed comfortable, however the bathroom needed some work, the lack of half the shower screen meant water went everywhere from the running shower, the...

This is a no frills, great value hotel. It is perfectly located close to the shops and the town center. It is also about 10-15 minutes from the ski complex. The continental breakfast is not the greatest way to start and it is preferable to eat breakfast elsewhere. The service is good and employees are friendly and proficient. The value...

A magnificent location, beautiful building; promising everything when one looks at it, but all expectation soon crash upon entry. There is no soul, no heart, no service, no smiles, no welcome. It obviously lives on past glories, probably with a glorious ancestry, as evidenced by the grainy photos, but nowadays it lives in the past only. To be blunt; they...

Please note: There are many confusing reviews about another hotel in the area with a similar name. This hotel does NOT have a swimming pool. It didn't matter to us as it was quite chilly during our two night stay. The owner of the Helmos Hotel was wonderful. We checked in and the room they had made up had a...

The hotel could not be located in a more central area, its just a minute walk from the center from the cafe shops and restaurants. The rooms are quite small but comfortable with all the needed facilities and also reasonably priced. The ski resort is about a 15 minute drive. We didn't try the breakfast or restaurant as we preferred...

I stayed at the Helmos on one of my tours and would go back again. The location is convenient for walking. The rooms are clean and the breakfast was fresh and adequate. Fotis and the rest of the staff were friendly and helpful.

The hotel is perfectly fine. Clean rooms, above average breakfast, and the staff is OK. BUT, there is a construction site directly in front of the hotel. And, it just so happened the construction crew hit the internet line, so even though they say they have wi-fi, you might want to check if they got it fixed if that's something...
