Me and a group of mates went from school on a cheap holiday so we weren't exactly expecting a lot. We got there and the rooms were dirty and each room of four only had one tiny aircon unit, meaning that one of the 2 bed rooms had no access to the aircon whatsoever. Furthermore in one of the rooms...

After reading reviews from various websites me and my other two friends expected a hotel similar to the one from The 'Inbetweeners'. But we was extremely happy with near enough everything! To start with the best things: The security guard- Nikos- such a great guy, he wanted the best for the hotel by guarding it from 23:00 till 7:00 which...

When reading some of the horrific reviews before departing, it was fair to say I was a little worried by what the apartment was going to be like when we got there. But like many have said - you get what you pay for. We ended up paying £300 for 10 days so we weren't expecting luxury. The rooms were...

Came to Malia July 14th 2013 for one week. Reading the reviews on Lu Ellen I was looking forward to my stay but was obviously dreading slightly because I organised the trip. We came in at around 2am & was greeted by the security guard who keeps watch during the night. He was cool took us to the room &...

With Lu Ellen Apartments you get what you pay for! Me and two of my friends stayed here in July. The rooms were basic but thats all you need when you're only going for a partying holiday. Nobody was at reception when we arrived but our names were on a board with our room number next to them. The owner...

Have just returned from a week in Malia, booked through Holiday Gems (that's a joke for a start, this was no gem!) where I stayed in Lu Ellen Apartments with 3 friends. Arrived at 4.0 in the morning, no one except security guard to show us to our room. Air con not available until we checked in properly in the...

We arrived on the 3rd July 2012 (4 girls). Nobody around, but then a Greek lady told us we were in room 15. It was a good size and had two balconies. One had a table, the other faced the supermarket so wasn't good. The balcony that we sat on was just big enough for the four of us. Anyway,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
LuEllen is a lovely complex with 15 apartments located in the area of old Malia, only a 2 min walk from the main strip of bars and pubs. LuEllen apartments can comfortably sleep 3-5 persons each. All of them have a separate bedroom with either a double bed or twin beds, a spacious living room area with convertible sofa beds, an en-suite bathroom, a fully equipped kitchenette, TV and DVD player, as well as access to either a private balcony or the terrace. There is, also, a safe box available for your valuable belongings. If the weather gets too hot, you can use the air-conditioning in your room for a minor charge payable locally, or you can just head to the beach which is a 20 min. walk from the LuEllen apartments. For those who prefer to sunbath by the swimming pool however, there is one available at the Melissa apts next door which is open and free to use for LuEllen guests. When the night falls and you feel like partying, you will love the fact that it will take you only 2 minutes to walk to all the pubs and bars, thus avoiding any taxi rides. Still, if you just want to relax, the old Malia area where the LuEllen apartments are located, will offer you all the quietness you look for. In the area, you will also have the chance to stroll around and visit traditional taverns and kafeneio (cafes). For your shopping needs there is a mini-market attached to the LuEllen apartments, which stays open until late at night. ... more   less
