Nested in olive trees farms Eressian Hotel Hammam is a lovely quiet paradise in Lesvos
The Best Hotels in Lesvos are mostly located in Mytilini town or in Skala Eressou, Petra, Mythimna or Plomari village, but there are nice hotels all over the island. Lesvos is a very unique island and the 3rd largest in area in Greece with hundreds of picturesque villages, beaches and obviously hotels.
BEST HOTEL IN LESVOS: Eressian Hotel
Lesvos does not belong to any particular greek island complex (like Cyclades or Dodecannese islands), and it’s the largest greek island after Crete and Evia. The island has some one of the most interesting and diverse landscapes in Greece with long beaches, tens of millions of olive trees and even its own petrified wooden forest!
Lesvos island is quite far from Athens, and you can reach it by taking an overnight ferry from Piraeus (it takes 12-13 hours ) or alternatively (and easier), just take a direct 45-minute flight from Athens or from a few European cities like London, Berlin, Paris, Hamburg, Amsterdam or even Milan. There is an international airport on Lesvos Island, but most international flights operate only between May and October for the summer season(always check Ferryhopper for the latest ferry schedules and Expedia for the most up-to-date flights to Greek islands).
It goes without saying that you need a car in Lesvos, as it’s a massive island with lots of areas to see and explore. Even by car you won’t be able to explore the whole island as you may find yourself driving for hours to reach the other side of the island because the roads are really not the best or well-maintained on the island. I do not recommend taking the local buses because it will take ages for you to get somewhere.

VERY IMPORTANT TO KNOW ABOUT LESVOS
- Best Area To Stay in Lesvos: The best area to stay in Lesvos is in Petra or Skala Eressou as it is the areas with the best vibes and the best beaches on the island. I do not recommend staying in Mytilini town as it is a very busy and big town See hotels in Skala Eressou
- Best Hotel in Lesvos:
- Best Villa in Lesvos: A Luxury Villa
- How many days do you need in Lesvos: the island is massive and no matter how long you are staying you won’t be able to see the whole of it; overall I believe you need at least a week in Lesvos
- How to Move Around in Lesvos: forget the local buses as it will take you ages to get anywhere if you use them; you will be better off renting your own car and using it as much as possible as there are long distances on the island and a million things to see and do
