On arrival at the hotel at 4am in the morning, we were abruptly informed there were no rooms available for us and some other British couples we arrived with. No apology was offered and we were sent to an alternate hotel. On returning the following day the reception staff once again were very rude, and not concerned by our inconvenience...

This is the excellent place to spend your holydays in Crete. Why? First, bcoz you don't spend much time in the room, and there's no reason to pay much for your hosting. Second, high level service. The staff is very friendly and attentive, speak several languages: English, German, Russian. Espessially, I'd like to remark a barmen Yannis and the receptionists...

Great Budget Hotel. Simple and comfortable rooms. Lovely Food, not great variation but they don't pretend to be gourmet dining. Nice Staff. Great Cocktail Bar out the front. Central Location. Would recommend for couples, perhaps to small for families.

Not normally a cocktail fan but my girlfriend persuaded me and was well worth it (even better because it was free) sitting out by the pool in the sun!! Aside from the lovely cocktails the staff were very friendly (especially the barman) and a very clean comfortable hotel. The food was a buffet but was always fresh and hot and...

A very good, clean and lovely hotel. We stayed for 10 days, the staff is very kind and very helpful, the food was good, always fresh, always enough. The location is also quite good. We haven't expected much, so we had a positiv experience. It is not recommended for those who want silence and piece.
