I only stayed in the Castello Apartments for one night and I was warmly greeted by the owner, Mrs Tina. She was very accommodating and polite and showed us to our room while also providing suggestions for dinner and breakfast in the area. The apartment itself was not that impressive, but it was spacious and clean. I guess I'm used to hotels with more character and that's why I wasn't that excited about it but it would have been a comfortable place for a couple travelling with a child since it had a separate bedroom and a separate living room with a lot of space. The bathroom was clean but rather small. The location was ideal, just across the bay of Panormos and very short walking distance to the beach and many restaurants. Our room was on the 1st floor with a decent balcony offering a side view to the bay, which was nice, but it was also right over the main street on the left where many tourists were walking just a few meters away from us and kids were being loud chasing each other around which offered no privacy. The back balcony, though, although it had no view was private. The room also came with a safe and some kitchen utensils but we didn't use them as we only stayed for a night. All in all, it's not a bad choice although I personally feel that 65 euro for an apartment with just the basics and no breakfast is too much for the end of August in Panormos. If we had been given the top apartment, with the big balcony, things would have been much better but it was a last minute reservation and I couldn't expect more. All in all, not a bad choice but just not my taste.

Have stayed in Crete before, and accommodation at Castello was brilliant in comparison to previous stay. For the money, apartment was fresh and clean, great location. Tina the manager was really helpful and friendly. Would definitely use these apartments again.
