Six friends and I stayed at Hotel Astoria a few weeks ago while visiting Crete. The owners son was very kind to let us into two of our rooms before our check-in. He was also kind enough to add a fourth room to our reservation. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were just okay and bathing was a challenge due to the very small size of the coffins.....er, showers.

We were able to take a quick ten minute walk down to the beach from the hotel. The walk home was not as easy due to all of the small side streets and possibly the amount of wine we were forced to drink on the beach. Before dinner we enjoyed some wine and snacks on the front porch with another guest. He was a lovely older gentleman from Amsterdam that loved his cigarettes, his wine and flirting with the young ladies.

A special shout out to Martin who was kind enough to help one of our friends locate her phone that she was convinced she had lost. He was most gracious comforting her when she was in distress until they located her phone. Our continental breakfast in the morning was good, everything was very tasty. One of our Another friend really enjoyed the fresh strawberries, she said she could taste them in her mouth the rest of the day.

All in all it was a very memorable experience for us that one of my friends shall never forget. Thank you!

Room Tip: One of the most "hands-on" hotel manager we met in Crete

This hotel is run by a family with absolutely amazing family members. They all work together to make their guests stay special. The room we had was great: spacious, clean, well equiped and even with a balcony. We couldn't have asked for more. The breakfast was five-star-quality. Every morning the grandma gets up very early to prepare all these delicious food - unbelievable. And whenever we needed an advise or directions someone took care of us, ordered us a taxi or gave recommendations. Next time Agia Galini we will stay here again.

Room Tip: They have rooms with ocean view or mountain view, both are beautiful.

Room was airy, extremely comfortable. Breakfast was fabulous. Eggs cooked to order, home made jelly for the bread and pastry. but... the absolute best thing was the service. Kate, the owner was there all the time. An extremely wonderful person.
Kari, the assistant was also extremely helpful.

I am 74 and my wife is 71. We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary. There is no elevator but that was not a problem.

This was absolutely the best hotel experience I have ever had because of the staff.

Room Tip: Best room is the penthouse, next is the second floor corner room.

Had a fabulous time and we're very well looked after by Kate and her staff treated like friends. the hotel is spotlessly clean and airy. The room was lovely and had a massive bed and lovely views from private balcony down to the beach and of the mountains. Clean towels daily and sheets changed during our stay. Hopefully the lift will be in by next year as already booked for next year loved it so much can't wait to go back

Room Tip: Had room on 2nd floor view was fabulous
