Me and my boyfriend returned home from Sidari a week ago and we have to say that we were pleasantly suprised by the Lia apartments. We were in room 2 so we were away from the road and all the noise and for what we paid we could not fault the accomodation. It was very basic but that is how most places are in Greece for that price. It was clean when we arrived and the cleaner came once every two days to change the bins and clean the apartment. Sheets were only changed once a week but again this is true to most apartments in Greece. If anyone is planning to go to these apartments I would be aware that they are basic but clean and maybe you could request either rooms 1,2 or 3 which are away from the road.
We were initially disappointed when we saw these apartments,we were in Room 4 - upstairs. The room was large with a very high ceiling which meant that the room stayed fairly cool, having windows to the back and front of the building also helped. Bedlinen and towels were only changed once a week, which is about average for Greek apartments anyway. The toilet seat was 'removeable'. The cupboard doors in the kitchenette were filthy but soon cleaned up. The only problem with noise was the hotel opposite and late night homegoers. For the price we paid it was not bad.
The room we were in was pretty grubby but bearable as we didn't spend much time in it. We did report toilet seat and a few other things to rep but nothing was done about it and after the attempted break in, which was reported to the rep at the same time, the solution was the maid turning up with a tube of super glue to fix the door!! Rooms 1 and 2 were pretty ok, they are on a separate block and didn't suffer from the noise we did (we were travelling as part of a party of eight and these were the other rooms they were staying in) it would just have been too much hassle to try and find alternative accomodation for all of us which is why we didn't ask to be moved.
Didnt you complain to the reps? Thank you for your information. Think I may take a spare sheet with me and maybe some cutlery. I have already spoken to Manos who we have booked with and let them know that if we get there and find the same as you then we want moving, they have said it shouldnt be a problem. Did you not try this or were the apartments not that bad?
been home 2 weeks now and stayed at the lia for 2 weeks, I have been to greece many times before and know the standards can be lower than in the uk, but the lia is probably the worst I have ever stayed in. I travelled as part of a party of eight so got to see what most of the rooms were like, if you are in room 5 you've drawn a short straw. This was my room, the bedding and towels were clean when we arrived on the monday evening, they were changed once the following sunday and that was it, the cups etc had to be washed before they could be used, the fridge was rusty, the toilet seat was too big for the toilet and didn't fit so when you sat on it it fell off! most of the lights didn'thave bulbs that worked and the room backs on to a shop so dont expect a lie in on a morning as you could hear banging and talking and cleaning from the restaurant which is also attached to the same block. also on the first night there was an attempted break in at my friends appartment we reported it to the rep along with the faults in our room and nothing was done about our room and the door was fixed and that was the end of that. The only good thing about the Lia is the location its not far from the Canal D'Amour area of sidari and has got some really nice restaurants nearby, I would go back to sidari but avoid the Lia.
I have booked to go to the Lia apartments at the end of August but have found no information about them at all. Has anyone been before or does anyone at least know of them and what they are like?
I would like to know the exact location of the Lia appartments in Sidari. I know they are near the Hotel Sellas. I visit Sidari every year and take a taxi from the airport. Please could you help Thanks
