Effies studios are situated round a pretty little 'tropical' garden, about 200 yards from the beach resort of Alinda, with its bars and restaurants, (avoid the Alinta Hotel - the kitchen may be clean but the food is unimpressive and the waiters cursery once the bill is paid!).
The studios are well maintained and have adequate self-catering facilities, (though some dish-washing utensils/soap would be nice!). The maid does the rooms ever other day, though the landlady, (who is very pleasant) comes to check if you need anything and will take away your rubbish, etc.
The only drawback we had was that we were in the block right next to the lane, so there was some noise from mopeds etc, so request to be set back from the road.
