Little pool, we did use. Reception passed some nice stop overs on our way to our next booking. Value for money. CC accepted in the midst of the...

As everywhere else in Greece, it's the people that made the difference. Even before we arrived, the friendly, helpful staff assisted me with car rentals and relieved my doubts about coming to Crete in a time of acute financial crisis. The rooms are comfortable and unsophisticated, breakfast (included) is the same, good to get you going but nothing special. The...

Easyjet placed us on standby and gave us an overnight stay in this hotel which is possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in!! The bedroom smelt of urine with stains on the bed and unfortunately it just got worse from here. My partner and I had left a 5* hotel and this was the biggest anti-climax since time...

This is a very clean mid range hotel with very friendly, helpful and accommodating staff. We arrived early from the ferry and they allowed us early check in, which was much appreciated. I would certainly recommend this hotel. It's also very easy to navigate out of the city if you are hiring a car.
