We arrived to a very warm welcome from the hotel owner. She was so friendly and helpful. The view we had was wonderful. We had a street facing view which looked out onto the ocean. When in the hotel, we spent most of our time on the balcony. Although located on a busy street, we did not find that to be bothersome, and actually quite nice for people watching. The location is perfect. We walked everywhere. We went to 3 beautiful beaches several times over the course of a week (Ammoudi, Ammos, and Kitroplatia). We also ate so incredibly well at every tavern/restaurant we went to, a highlight being Gioma Meze which looks out onto the lake. If you enjoy walking everywhere, and staying at a self-service style hotel where you can feel like you live where you are visiting, Melas Apartments is perfect.
