Went expecting good things according to majority of reviews but was worse than any other 2/3 star hotels I have stayed at in Greece. Didn't book directly with the hotel as unusually found a better deal on a booking site We must have bought the booby room allocated to those who don't book directly. The same room has been reviewed...

The host Makis makes everyone's stay here pleasure. The hotel is good, its location is excellent, but Makis and his staff could not be more helpful. It was very quiet in November, and we had full use of the adjacent 4* hotel pool and sunbeds. The area is tranquil and we walked regularly the mikle into Sami. A car is...

We came across Athina Hotel based on the past reviews during the planning of our trip to Kefalonia for a family of 4 including 2 kids aged 7 and 9. Based on our limited budget, the positive reviews was what captured us. After arriving at the airport and renting a car (hugely advised), the 45 minute pleasant but hair-raising parts...

How do you turn a three star into a four (or more)??? Add a Makis! The hotel is in a good position, the room we stayed in was fine, and SO clean - new towels and cleaned EVERY day of our two week stay. Breakfast is basic, but adequate. Back to Makis. The absolute life and soul of the hotel....

Lovely time here. It means a lot to have such a caring & welcoming host. A great base to walk to Sami but not be based in the thick of it. Very peaceful in October but just what we needed. Comfy sun beds, nice towels & sea water pool over at the neighbouring hotel. Very clean room & communal areas,...

This was our fifth visit to the Athina Hotel. We stayed for 10 nights and had the usual fantastic stay made all the better by Makis. The Hotel, if you have not visited is basic but very clean and comfortable, clean towels and the room cleaned ever day. Visit again ? you bet :)

I've just returned from another wonderful week at Athina Hotel. My husband and I have been going to the hotel for 10 years now but this was my first solo visit where I met a friend for a 'girlie' week. Makis gave me a lovely room with a sea view and balcony, the first time I have had a sea...

Just home from a lovely few days in Sami. We were not lucky with the weather we had several storms , This did not stop us seeing the island as we had a hire car which is a must. It was fairly easy to find our way there , though a better map from eurocar would have helped.....I had previously...

On arrival we were greeted with a welcome cocktail (on the house!) and given a very warm welcome by the owner, Makis. We were then given a choice of a standard hotel room with a seaview balcony or a larger apartment with a kitchenette which had a balcony facing inland. We chose the larger room with kitchenette as we like...

Makis is just the best host ever, he is friendly and very slightly crazy. nights in the bar after a meal down in sami are a perfect end to a day in beautiful Kefalonia. the hotel is positioned justoff of the beach and on the sea path into Sami. this place is an experience not to be missed.
