Do not let the only 2+ star put you off. This is a very good hotel and it has all you need for a great stay in crete at good price. Located in the Gerani countryside - still only 5 min bus/taxi ride to the Platanias restaurants and busy tourist life. Though you have all you need here: several good... More

I loved the size of the room with a separate bedroom and kitchenette connected to livingroom. There was a balcony overlooking the bar next door and parts of the beach. However, my friends and I overslept one day when suddenly the cleaning lady came in and demanded we vacate the room so she can clean. We asked her to come... More

Friendly staff, clean & spacious apartments, nice & quiet location away from the main tourist masses. Easy to go to center of Platanias or Chania by bus. Very good hotel for a relaxing vacation away from the world.

We stayed in this hotel in June 2010 with friends, no children travelling with us. There were some problem when we arrived in the hotel. I noticed a nickname Niko_sta had already written about it, so I won´t get down to the details now. Over all I think the hotel is a budget style and rooms needed some update soon.... More

We are a family with four children (10,10,11,12). We spent a week in Alfa Hotel this summer in a nice two-bedrooms-apartment. Can't complain of anything. Pool is fine and clean. Staff is friendly and helpfull, though some of them can't speak much english. Location is not central, but what can one expect of budget-hotel? Local buses stop just outside the... More

Firstly a hotel was little bit too far away from services, attractions and beaches. Well, there was a beach nearby but who could take a sunbath if there is lot of rocks and trash??? Almost everyday we had to walk about 3 - 4 kilometers to Platanias or Agia Marina. And why we didn´t take a bus? They were never... More

It is good if you are from Sweden, Norway or Denmark as this is definitely not for an international English speaking traveller. Most bookings are from fritidsresor, which we also incidentally (most regretable!) used for our booking. So the menu, travel desk, guide plans are all in Swedish! downside : The reception is mostly not manned during the days. This... More
