Nice clean friendly hotel, good home cooked food
Pre booked this hotel for one night after coming off Ferry from Santorini. Weather was terrible, ferry was late and even though we didn't get to hotel till 11pm, they kept back some Chicken Stew and potatoes for us (we had paid for the evening meal and would totally recommend taking this option). Room was clean, air con, small tv, bathroom clean, shower was good, bed was a little hard for my liking however if you have been to Greece you know this is the norm. Great price per night and could not fault the friendliness or customer service. Thanks again.

Lovely hotel
I had a lovely time here with my boyfriend. The staff were wonderful and the food was incredible! Everything was always clean and it was a lovely hotel suitable for families. There is a bit of a walk to the beach but worth it if your looking for something a bit out the way. The bus stop to the airport and town is right outside and it's in walking distance to Crete Aquarium and Dinosauria. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. And if your stuck for things to do while your there the staff know the island well. They can advise you where to go and you can hire a car off them for a good price.

Lots of stairs but no lift.
On arrival at about 00:30 we found a note pinned to the door giving us a number to ring to be let in. Staff seemed unaware that we were travelling on a flight due in at 23:00 (and which was 30 minutes late). Our first room was disappointing, at the top of five flights of stairs and was very noisy with only one tatty bedside lamp. The only TV channels were Greek or German. There is no lift, so wheel-chair access would be out of the question. All rooms could only be accessed via stairs making it difficult even for some older people. Staff were helpful in re-locating us to a slightly more accessible room the next morning and retuning the TV to a single English channel (BBC News). Some staff were very helpful and friendly, indeed anxious to please. A noisy air-conditioning unit made sleeping difficult as the choice was either quiet but hot, or noisy but cool. Food was adequate and a good choice. Breakfast was Greek/Continental. Hospitality was geared towards German guests who were in the large majority. No problem with that but it made socialising difficult as neither of us speak much German and there seemed to be no other anglophone guests. The only car parking is on-street, which could sometimes be some distance from the hotel. The nearest beach with taverna was some 15-20 minutes walk away.

Ruhiges, kleines Hotel
Wir haben dort 3 wunderschöne Wochen verbracht. Die Freundlichkeit der ganzen Familie - Vater, Mutter, Söhne und Enkelkinder - und vor allem von Maria, der Angestellten, und auch dem anderen Personal, ist kaum zu toppen. Alle sind stets gut gelaunt und hilfsbereit. Sonntags wird 2 Stunden (incl. Getränken) gegrillt (gegen Aufpreis), Donnerstags gibt es einen Bouzouki-Abend (gegen Aufpreis), bei dem alle Gäste beim Tanzen und allerhand Späßchen mit einbezogen werden. Das fördert natürlich auch die Kontakte zu anderen Gästen. Außerdem kann man im bzw. über das Hotel preiswerte Autos leihen. Bei Wochenbuchung kann man sogar aufteilen in 1 x 3 und 1 x 4 Tage. Das fanden wir sehr angenehm, da man dann mal eine Pause zwischendurch machen kann. Bushaltestellen liegen fast vor der Haustür. Man kann in alle Richtungen fahren bzw. in Heraklion (ca. 15 km entfernt) umsteigen).
