Updated: 9 February 2017
The Greek island of Lesbos has been the birthplace of many famous artists. Its cultural importance is by far the strongest trait of its identity and that reflects in the area of hospitality: boutique hotels and traditional guesthouses are the norm here. The majority are family owned and they offer a more personalized service, in accordance with Greek hospitality. Below we have selected ten of the best places to stay in the island of the poets.

Theofilos Paradise Boutique Hotel

A high end boutique hotel, Theofilos is the number one choice of those looking for all the comforts and facilities of a modern hotel combined with the charms of a boutique experience. This fully restored, traditional mansion is located near many important sites and amenities of the picturesque port town of Mytilene . The ample rooftop terrace boasts a wonderful rooftop bar, and there is even a small rooftop swimming pool to enjoy during the hot Summer months.

Pyrgos of Mytilene

Meaning “the Tower” in Greek, Pyrgos is a historic belle epoch building in the main town of Mytilene. It has been fully restored to a high standard, and it offers 12 luxurious rooms with sea, garden or city views. The quaint rooms create an ambience of sweet nostalgia and old-school vacationing, just as people preferred it back in 1916 when the Tower was built. Home made Greek breakfast with fresh local ingredients is offered at the grandiose dining room. This is not a hotel for those looking for a sun lounger by the pool, but rather targets those interested in the cultural identity and history of the places they visit.
