Stayed here for a week at the start of October. I would recommend a sea view room as the view looks stunning, but you do not get much sun, the rooms at the back get the sun. Despite having a sea view room, the main road that runs along the beach is pretty noisy throughout the night. Its a small...

Stayed here for a week early October. Well worth getting a room with a sea view as the hotel is directly on the beach. With the patio door open though it can be a bit noisy as the main coastal road is in front of the hotel and some of the scooters in Crete are louder than Concorde taking off....

This hotel is clean and quiet right across the street from a nice sandy beach. Short walk to town. This hotel was clean and reasonable, little beach shops and good restaurants at your doorstep. This place had a nice shower and a balcony great for people watching. Overall very good value for your money. Very suitable for a beach get...

I must admit I am a bit torn writing this review. The location is ok, not easy to find a parking space but that's not a huge issue. Lots of supermarkets around but quite a walk to the center. If you want to use the beach it's just opposite. Wifi connection was very weak (room on one of the upper...

Small, clean and nice hotel with perfect location and very friendly service! The sea is next to the hotel, and a lot of good restaurants and super markets around. We had one bedroom room and those rooms has two balconies with sea view from both and the bigger balcony you could call like living room.

My partner and I stayed here in mid June 2016. Great location, with bars and restaurants at your doorstep. Beach across the road with sun lounges organized by the hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms have been recently updated and are really nice. Highly recommended!

Good location, near old town. There are shops, restaurants close to these apartments so you can easily get what you need. The street is straight under the balcony but there wasn't very noisy (maybe because it wasn't a high season, I don't know). There are all facilitities for cooking. Beds are very big. Nice enough view from the balcony (to...

For a budget hotel the room was very large, clean and had just about everything you could need. It was great to look over the balcony to the sea. The only downside was that it was a bit of a long walk from the center of town, but otherwise no complaints about this hotel at all.

Me and my best friend recently stayed here for a week's holiday, they location is amazing! We are right by the beach so we can literally wake up, walk a couple of steps and we are there! We got the sea view for our room which I would definitely recommend as it's really nice to watch the sea as you...

First of all, most comfortable beds ever! Good location, 15min. lovely beach promenade walk to the old town. I definitely recommend to book a room with the seawiew. No loud bars under the balcony, just lovely sea wave sounds. Good breakfast for only 5 euros (bread, cheese, ham, egg, coffee/tea, yummy moist orange cake, juice, cereal and youghurt). Nice pool...

“Sea view worth paying extra, and the higher the floor the better. If a superior room is available - take it, it's nicely decorated.”
