We were looking for a place to stay overnight after exhausting trip in Samaria Gorge and found this pleasant hotel after a short walk. It was May and not high season of course. We came from Hersonissos, which was overloaded with tourists, mostly from Russia and a quiet, relaxing hotel like Elman was exactly what we wanted. Staff was extremely...

The Elman, we were told, is the oldest hotel in Paleochora and the 1970s decor and facilities reflect this. Its location is excellent, virtually on the beach, and the rooms are very spacious. The room fittings and fixtures however are aged and the place needs refurbishment. The flat screen TV turned out to be an ancient 14 inch version with...

The 3 star Hotel Elman catches your eye as you drive into Paleochora. The flapping flags and white painted entrance look quite inviting… and the long marble entrance, leading to the tidy reception area continues the theme, after you step over the gap and the lazy, slightly overweight hotel dog. The elderly management is very polite and pleasant – keen...

If you are not a bit of a romantic, opt for another hotel. We felt like we were in a MadMen episode staying at the Elman - it serves as proof that good things last. it may be old, but you can see the consistent effort that is made to keep it up and it is definitetely one of the...

We were treated like dogs by the receptionist at the Elman hotel. There had been a misunderstanding with the dates, I grant that, but she just kept yelling at us like a madwoman. ELMAN HOTEL AT PALEOCHORA?? NEVER AGAIN!!
