My son and his girlfriend spent a week in October at this hotel. My son has been abroad alot and his girlfriend had never been abroad so both ends of the spectrum. They found the hotel clean although basic but at this price was excellent for the money. They said the owners were wonderful and they had a wonderful full english breakfast for 7 euros for the two of them. The weather wasnt too good but obviously nothing to do with the hotel. For a inexpensive but very enjoyable holiday they thought it was excellent. It was a present from us so we were very pleased.
Well, my daughter and I were worried about going to Two Brothers when we had read all the reviews but we had a great time. The room was basic but what do you expect for the price! We didn't go to to sit in the room! The beach is a ten minute walk away and was lovely. The restaurants were clean, welcoming and friendly. Food excellent - particularly Heaven's Kitchen and two or three others. We didn't go to the Olive Tree because we read loads of bad stuff about it. There is a little take away place at the end of the main road which does cheap and filling snacks. The supermarkets were good, the cigarettes were cheap, the restaurants were surprisingly reasonably priced. We got great copy sun glasses and hand bags. The Boat Trips were lovely. It was a lovely relaxing holiday and we met many really nice people there. The Brothers themselves were quite nice - as far as the language barrier permitted. The maids did not steal from us but then we didnt leave anything valuable in the room. Everyone was very nice to us. The only thing that annoyed me was that we arrived early morning and therefore this counted as our first night so we were short a night at the end of the holiday and they wanted 30 euros to keep our room on. we decided not to do this and sat out by the pool until the coach came at 3 in the morning! One other thing - you will be on a coach and flight with people who have been to Laganas which is the drinking capital of the island so be prepared for drunken youths on the journey home!
Just stayed here for a week in August myself and my 2 children,yeh it was basic in the room but I dont go to Kalamaki to stay in my room,the sisters were fine,The pool was very clean and kept clean all the time,location was brill and me and the children met some great people at the apartments and for what I paid for it if the same deal came up again I would stay there again,quite a few people I met there were put off by comments made on here but when they got there they also said it was ok,so make your own minds up and dont be put off by peoples comments :-)
my partner and i stayed there for 2 weeks last may . reading about everyones whinges and moans im miffed (what do these people want for £700 for 14 nights)obviously they got f**k all else to do!charlotte our rep was brilliant so were panos costa and the sisters.
if your expecting a1 accomadation pay the price
I think some people expect 5 star accomodation when visiting the greek isles when, in reality, apartments rarely meet those standards!
Stayed here for two weeks 14th - 28th September. We were allocated a room in the block run by the girls, basic but clean. Clean towles and sheets regularily and the girls were very nice if you tried a little greek on them.
Stayed at the two brothers apartment for 1 week, I would'nt keep a rat in the rooms we had to stay in! there was blood up the walls of splattered mosqeutos. Had to buy our own toilet rolls, the bath mat was filthy, with dirt from past stayers at the apartment, there was tape on the cooker covering the cord! which looked like a quick cover up,,great when you have to cook on the draining board! shower was falling to bits, the table cloth was filthy! It stunk of rotten cabbage (i though i'd entered my local allottment). The door handle was hanging off, the cleaners kepted opening the doors when we was out,,I would like to know why they was in our room,,cause it was'nt to clean!!!!! Had a bad back every day from the beds, the pillows were like rocks! we had to fold towels up to make it more comfortable on top of the pillows.
Returned from second visit to Two Brothers on 2nd July and must say my boyfriend and I both enjoyed our two week holiday. Costas and Panos were as helpful as ever and we had no problems with the sisters. We stayed in their block, the room was cleaned everyday - toilet roll was supplied when needed. If i had to complain it would be the wet bathroom after the shower but there is a mop and bucket in the corridor which we gratefully used. All in all this accomodation is no better or worse than any other you would find on the greek islands. Location is perfect. It's a quiet area but only a stones throw away from the main street. The pool was very clean and well looked after and we would have no problem staying there again.
was great went with my bf for 3 weeks and loved it
First holiday away together with my boyfriend, was nice until we got to the hotel, bathroom stank, maids were really rude. When they eventually cleaned the apartment they left windows wide open and i had gifts stolen from my suitcase that were for people back home. Will never go back to two brothers. have to say kalamaki was a lovely resort though.
My friend and I stayed at Two Brothers from 12th - 19th October 2008. It was very pleasant and relaxing, accommodation was good, basic but clean, what you would expect from a Greek apartment. Only complaint was that they didn't sweep the room or wash the floor in the bathroom, so by the end of the week it really was messy. Although nothing stopped us from doing it ourselves - but I'm on holiday!! The pool was clean and not all that packed, however we spent most of our days on the beach but didn't spot any baby turtles. As it was coming to the end of the season it wasn't busy but they wanted 8euros for a sunbed each..so we bought airbeds for 3.50euros these lasted the week and we used them in the sea! The night time was very quiet but enjoyed the meals at 'Heavens Kitchen' - highly recommended also the bakery with fresh home made cakes...'Down Under' bar run by Nick, he kept us entertained and supplied way too many free shots. Weather was great apart from the evening before and the day we came home full on thunder, lightening and rain. However brilliant holiday just what the doctor ordered.
Hi, stayed here for a week from the 28th September 2008. Loved Kalamaki and met some really nice people.
Me and my mum stayed here between 28th august til 11th september. We are absolutely appalled by the accommodation provided to us. I am particually angry with the image English people have about greek people and the way they live. they are not uncivilised. they dont live in sheds. the accommodation given to us was terrible and i know for a fact that greek people would not live in these conditions in their own homes.
we have been to kalamaki a few times in the evening to eat out and have a drink b4 returning to laganas for the main drinking session lol. food is roughly same price as laganas main courses ranging from about 4.50 euros to 11 for steak but on the road that leads down from the main road to the beach theres a lovely little greek resturant that does kleftico flambe style thats roast lamb and potatoes in a a tin foil dish and the owner brings them to ur table and to melt the cheese he sprinkles a little alcohol over the tin foil and lights it b4 undoing the tin foil. the effect to the dish is amazing theres always a huge demand for this resturant so get there early. a little bit further u theres a nice place that cooks english food if that what u prefer but if u want english food u usaually pay dearer for it. so try greek cuisine its lovely. beer is roughly 2 euros a pint of mythos there own beer if u like carling u will like mythos. cocktails vary from place to place from happy hours 2 euros to some rip of places about 6 euros a glass. if you can and you like cocktails grab a fishbowl especially if theres a couple of you works out a lot cheaper. btw coke etc is the same price as beer in bars. but from shops a 1 and half litre costs roughly 1 euro thats 80p compared to ours in england
We stayed at the Two Brothers Apartments in Kalamaki for a week in September 2007 – very laid back, quiet and had a nice pool area. Very clean and simple room, with fridge, kettle and balcony, perfectly adequate for our needs. However, make sure you have spare loo roll as they are very stingy! The towels have seen better days too. If you want them changed mid-week throw them on the floor as they don't bother otherwise. A couple of occasions the cleaners left our balcony doors open which we weren't too happy about! However nothing was stolen. Only had breakfast there once – not very impressed with the microwaved chocolate croissants which tasted funny. The rest of the time we bought our own breakfast and ate on our balcony – a good way to socialise with the neighbours. The Two Brothers is in a good location being only 1-2 minutes from the main strip and 10-15 minutes walk to the beach and I would recommend staying here as well as Kalamaki.
Me and the husband stayed at the two brothers for one week in sep 07. The rooms are fairly basic, no scope for making complicated food/drinks. The bathroom flooded each time the shower was used and the toilet wasn't too great, however, by greek standards it was acceptable. pool area was v. nice and owners very accomodating. corriders in between rooms are quite noisy so if you are bothered by this then this may not be the place to stay. location wise, 2 brothers is perefect for bars and restaurants and is about a 15 min walk to the nearest beach.
Stayed at the Two Brothers for two weeks, met some great people there, found the staff really friendly if anyone is going please tell Katerina who owns one of the blocks that margarita will write soon. We heard reports of the maids stealing I think it was rubbish as I had left everyting lying about the room and not one thing was stolen, we found the girls extremely helpful at the end of the day if you treat people well they will respond in kind.
