“Worst hotel we have ever stayed in”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

Dirty place. Balcony doors do not lock. Shower head has no support. Toilet did not flush. Staff let us take a taxi to the airport when all Greeks must have known there was a 24 hour general strike. Was early morning and we were the only idiots out there. Noise through the thin walls sounded like the other guests were in your room with you. Breakfast was a joke. Staff were disinterested to the point of total dismissive ness. Ruined my whole stay in Crete to the point of positive hatred of the place.

Rooms: Just ok. Clean. No tea and coffee making facilities.

Staff: helpful and warm as Greek are in general!

Location: Great! Near the main street and close to the harbor. As well as good to get to Knossos.

Breakfast: good. Excellent coffee and a large variety of teas.

It suited our needs. Decent budget hotel. Better online price than walk- in price.

All in all, not a bad hotel for the price. Quite good to use as a stop off point or for a couple of nights stopover.

Needs some kind of updating.

A plus: I had the best coffee of my life in the bar at the hotel! DO try it!

Should have read the reviews on trip advisor - went to booking.com instead and was very disappointed! The internet was advertised as free and was not... The rooms need a major renovation. Beds are super uncomfortable, staff was not friendly, air conditioning didn't work at first, just felt old and neglected like everyone else has said. There are plenty of other great hotels down the street with the same great location for much better quality. Don't stay here!

Close to the port, that's the reason we stayed for 1 night, but the Hotel needs renovation! Beds not good, bathroom very poor!
Breakfast was ok.

Room Tip: Try to find other place in the area.
