9.5 Excellent
Pros: Everything has been great. Dimitris is so careful about details that you would not be surprised enough. Thanks!
Cons: Wi-Fi is a little bit slow by night
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Our host Dimitris was brilliant from the get go, emailing details of the accommodation, greeting us with warmth and hospitality and providing little welcoming touches such as fruit and wine. The Suite was very modern with a comfortable bed and pillows, great Wi-fi, well stocked fridge and small flat screen tv. The a/c worked brilliantly and we sure needed it in the heat. The bathroom was well equipped with a rain head shower, bath sheets and even face washers - yippee! There was an array of toiletries and a small window to open to get fresh air. There were at least three free parking spaces for Lavris guests out the front, which are a bonus in Crete. My wife and I can highly recommend this property for a stay in Heraklion.
Cons: It is a little way out of the centre - probably a 10 minute walk the quickest way and 15 minutes the long, scenic route around the coast.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Perfect location, nice breakfast, thank you.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Convenience to port, bus station, and activities. Beautifully decorated. Extremely welcoming staff who made us feel so at ease and explained everything. Wonderful hotel! The cretian treat was a special added treat that really added an element of making us feel so welcome and special.
Cons: N/A everything was perfect.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: We liked the style of our room (modern with an archeological touch in the details) and its insulation (despite Iraklion is close to the airport, you could not ear any noise from the room). Despite we did not have any physical contact with the staff, the receptionist reached out to us and we could coordinate the details of our stay (check-in) on the phone. We appreciated having a free parking lot in front of the hotel and suggestions on where to go and eat.
Cons: We found the price slightly high (compared to other hotels in Greece), considering that the breakfast was not included. However, we could arrange breakfast on our own by relying on a few bars nearby.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location and comfort · We stayed in Ariadne room. It was very clean and beautifully decorated with lots of great windows that opened and had partial views of the sea. We especially enjoyed the window in the shower! (no lack of privacy). Everything was so comfortable and relaxing. We appreciated the little hospitalities like tissues and washcloths that often were not provided at other properties we stayed in Greece. The list of local restaurants and attractions with phone numbers and opening hours was also helpful. I misplaced a necklace while I was there. we tore apart the bed looking for it but with no luck. When we returned after maid had cleaned up, the necklace was laid out on the desk! Thank you so much, Lavris City Suites! The location is great, especially convenient to the port, if you are planning a trip to the Islands before or after your stay. The bus station is across the street (we saw people waiting for the bus to Knossos), and the airport is a 10 minute cab ride. It’s Also convenient to archaeological museum a short 5-10 minute walk with a little uphill due to the bastion.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: There were only a few rooms at Lavris city suites, and it was perfect. Angeliki and Dimitris were wonderful hosts. They kept in touch via WhatsApp and were kind enough to meet us at the suit and introduce themselves. The rooms were super clean, modern and spacious. Very comfortable, with all the facilities you need. The location was great too. Close to the Port and to the centre.
Cons: Nothing!!

Elpis Hotel - Heraklion - Building
2
9.6 Excellent (128 reviews)
Overview Reviews
When you stay at Elpis Hotel in Gouves, you'll be near the beach, within a 15-minute drive of Heraklion Archaeological Museum and Heraklion Port.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The wonderful hospitality. I was made to feel so welcome by everybody! The many gestures that made me feel like family and make me want to come back. Thank you George, Yannis, George (and also to Antonia, the lady who cleaned my room), for all the great breakfasts, for your sincere interest in your guests, for your generosity and hospitality even towards those that are not staying at your hotel (my son and daughter-in-law came to visit and you treated them like valued guests).
Cons: Nothing not to like.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a wonderful stay in this hotel. It’s simple, very clean, friendly and close to the beach and shops. If you need anything else on your holiday, super helpful stuff will help you with literally everything you want to know. We would definitely come back to explore more of the beautiful Crete one day and stay here again. Thank you George for your lovely hospitality ☺️
9.5 Excellent
Pros: This place was exceptional because the whole place is run by a dynamic team of 3 who between them have the highest standards and cover everything. I loved the housekeeper (Mrs Antonio?) who picked up on and responded to our needs without us asking and was always cheery and left he room impeccably clean. The 2 Georges were friendly and helpful and keen for us to have a good stay. The place is not perfect or luxury but it certainly had what we needed and it was the people in Kokkini Hani, and particularly the hotel, that stood out most about this holiday because you felt you got to see a little below the surface and a little of the Cretan personality. The location was really good - 5 minutes walk to a safe beach through the grounds of the hotel opposite, the bus stops 1 minute away got us to loads of major sights on our 2 week stay and we certainly could have stayed longer and had plenty to do. There are good restaurants by the sea- we liked Nikolas (best food) and the fish tavern next door to it (mot romantic location) both in a quieter bit of seafront but there are more than 15 restaurants within a 15 minute walk starting with a very good and cheap one right next door to the hotel that is open late. There are 2 big supermarkets 10 minutes walk away that have everything you need. We like nice places - it is not the most stunning (but nice) place on Crete but because of this it is not overwhelmed by tourists and feels like a real place where many of the tourists there are are Greek, for us it gave us a better Cretan experience and we travelled to Rythmon, Spinalonga, Knossos etc. the main touristy sights. Heraklion we liked too it was nice to hang out in the squares. The hotel was incredibly good value for money. and we would definitely recommend it
Cons: For us nothing we didn't like but the kitchen has only one ring - we didn't cook and you could eat out quite cheaply but we did have breakfast in our room and the fridge and kettle and crockery were useful.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything about this accommodation was 10/10 and it started when we walked on the side walk out front. Actually it started when the host first contacted us while at our previous accommodation telling us all the information we would need to know about our stay. He also gave us very clear directions to get to this accommodation by city bus from the port where we got off our ferry. It was all very well explained. The host saw us on the sidewalk sweaty so much and he was so ready to help, he got our info quick and rushed us to our rooms and gave us two free complimentary litres of cold water. He had said we were in a smaller room the day before but that for that reason he would upgrade us the next day of our stay. We got a huge wrap around balcony and two beds in our room and much more space. This was soooo kind and not expected. Also when I went to buy water the next day, he gave me another free bottle. The hosts are both named George by the way and they are th kindest and most helpful people ever! By far this is the best customer service I have ever experienced and that’s saying a lot since I am very well travelled and actually towards the end of a two and a half month trip through Europe. Both George’s were enthralled and eager to show two lost canadian girls the best places to go and get around crete by saving money and not give into tourist scams. They wanted us to genuinely have an amazing time and we did because of them. I could not have been happier than staying with them at Ellis hotel! Beach was so close to walk and the hotel was very clean! Thanks for everything !!!!
Cons: We thought the ad said it was on the beach, but it’s a short walk. No problems just maybe clarify that!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Close to the beach, close to shops, restaurants. Easy accessibility, very kind staff, good room size, kitchen facilities. I highly recommend

10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was a truly unforgettable experience, mostly due to an amazing hosts, who made my vacation one of the best I ever had! There are not enough words to explain how kind, helpful and fun they all were. The whole place was impeccably clean and organized thanks to a lovely Mrs. Antonia, a very dear and kind lady. Hotel is located 3 minutes away from one of the best beaches in the area and hosts are most helpful with recommending best places to go, so you can have a genuine experience and you do not feel like a simple tourist. I fell in love with this gorgeous island an the amazing people living there!

Cons: Everything was very good.

Pros: Everything i experienced at Elpis hotel, together with my fiancee,made our vacation worth it; -from the cleaning, to all kinds of services if one needed anything and to extremely friendly staff and owners. I couldn't recommend it more to anyone who seeks good company and service( cleaning, drinks etc.) that makes you not wanting to leave the place anymore.

Pros: We were welcomed so warmly by Bella. She made us feel so at home instantly, and even though we arrived a little travel worn (read sweaty and overwhelmed by the ferry ride) she was so calm and helpful, booked us into a great restaurant for dinner, took care of our bags, explained the different features of the room and made us feel like honoured guests. This experience was continued throughout our stay with thoughtful touches like drinks on arrival, towel swans and sweets on our freshly made bed, breakfast boxes for our early flight and a gift when we left. The room was clean, comfortable and well appointed, with everything you could possibly need including a range of classic books, coffee machine, gourmet teas, wine fridge, wide range of snacks and cold cuts- you didn’t really need to leave the room! Plus you could look out onto Elftherias Square and the Port from our window. Fantastic sunrise view! The museum, Lion Fountain and many of the other main sites were a very short walk away, along with many restaurants, coffee bars and lunch spots. The bus stop to Knossos was also right outside the hotel.

Walking distance from the port and the bus station A ( than connect with Knossos). Fantastic experience!
Cons: We enjoyed everything
6.8 Good
Pros: very nice and in an exceptional location - the only reason for the average rating is that the competition against airbnb housing is fierce and the value offered is considerably lower when compared to a similar airbnb rental - if you don't need the constant hotel room service and wholesome breakfast.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Rooms were clean, modern and comfortable. The breakfast was amazing and the location is central. The staff were welcoming and friendly. We would definitely come back.

Pros: Ended up having to stay there last minute when our flight was cancelled, and lucked into their last room at midnight. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great. Great location too.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent location. Breakfast can get very crowded at the stations but there is ample seating. The location is slap bang central, easy to find, excellent parking. Get a balcony room if you can, Heraklion can be confusing and not only is the balcony a good place to cool down, or sunbathe, the view can really help you get your bearings. Hotel is best accessed from the East side of the city, don't be afraid to ignore google maps and drive on a few junctions to save you driving through the city centre.

Pros: Breakfast was good, hotel , very clean and all facilities required. Friendly staff.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Olive Green exceeded all expectations. Staff were very friendly and helpful with all our (many) requests. The room was perfect for our family (two adults and one toddler sleeping in a 'big' bed but could fit two kids in a separate space) and had all the facilities we needed. The restaurant at the hotel is genuinely delicious and well priced. The hotel is a short walk to the main square and had a wide range of restaurants and bars.
Cons: It was a bit tricky to drive to the front entrance to drop off your things (if you are driving). Unless you're very brave probably better to park in the Central Parking nearby and walk the short distance.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: We stayed here for 6 nights and starting from check in, the staff greeted us with great hospitality. They have offered us early check in and after the check out we were able to still use all facilities as normal guests in order to accommodate our travel schedule. Food during the lunches and dinners were tasty and diverse. The rooms met the expectations and were cleaned every day regularly. During the day, there wasn't loud music by the pool or the beach and we really liked the peaceful atmosphere. Also, as a young couple, we really liked the adults only concept. All in all, everything was great.
Cons: Although the staff was lovely, we were constantly addressed in German. That was a little off-putting to the feeling of being in Greece. Some of the staff put some effort to remember us but in general it was not the case.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It so difficult to write something in special because this hotel is AMAZING. The most impressive for us is the staff specially George and his staff in the dining room. I have never seen workers in the hotel like them.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The bed was more comfortable than most. Aircon rooms. Clean. Nice terrace.
Cons: You have to hold the shower head to rinse off. The bathrooms were so-so. The town was whatever, not by a beach or pool, so when it’s hot you don’t feel like going out. It’s a good spot to catch the ferry the next day. I wouldn’t spend more than a night maybe two here.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Aesthetics and staff!
Cons: AC in one of 2 rooms was poorly placed - functional but not optimal
4.3 Okay
Pros: Location
Cons: The staff were completely unprofessional: 1. The hotel has withdrawn the money (not blocked) from my credit card 10 days prior to our stay even though we have selected free cancelation and pay at the property option. 2. Initially we have booked a room for two people (€103), but one of our friends has tagged along with us so we have changed our booking to three people, as a result of that the room has been changed to family room (€165). When we have arrived, the receptionist told us that you have changed the type of the room not the number of people in the room and insisted on her invalid argument for half an hour. Another member of staff came, he understood that the argument is not valid but because of her, he was also insisted on the type of the room logic rather than the number of people. And guess what, they were talking about €10 more! That is why I am saying that they were unprofessional as they have wasted our time and did not get their €10 either at the end of the day!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is a beautiful boutique hotel only 2.5 years old in a renovated 1510 Venetian house reused during the Ottoman period.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very clean Friendly staff Basic room Excellent breakfast
5.5 Okay
Pros: Staff was excellent. Location for old town Heraklion is perfect. Very old structure that has been renovated.
Cons: The air conditioning was ineffective making for a very hot night. Shower was smaller than tiny and it leaked, but the water drained in secondary hole near the toilet. The pillows were all for show and horrific to sleep on: high, hard, and hot and filled with all polyester that you’d get for $4 at Target. Better instructions on how to find it in the small streets of Heraklion would have been nice.

Pros: Only pors with this hotel is the geographic localisation, close to the sea and city center and the room is clean.
Cons: The cons now... I was traveling with my wife, when we got to the room the bed were separeted and when we asked to make it a double bed they refused. There were no air conditioning, small balcony (compared to the pictures before booking), the breakfast is a no go, personel is not kind to help you... I would not recommend this hotel for your stay in Heraklion but the one just beside for example (Mirabello where we had a way better time).

Cons: The seafront rooms are not sea front actually. You can see the sea like %5 percent when you go to the balcony. Faulty naming of these rooms at all. Not good not worth to buy them, go with the cheaper ones. They are near the sea okay but not sea front or whatever.

Pros: We came back Agapi Beach after 3 years, and we weren't disappointed again. The resort keeps its high standards at everything, from food to facilities. It's just perfect for traveling with kids. We will come back again.
Cons: Some of the entertainment program feels a little retro (trivia quizzes, bingo, movie nights), this has some nice charm to it, but I would expect something more suitable for 2019.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very calm place, excellent to come with small children. Has it's own beach and three pools, also has good restaurants and free bars.

Pros: The staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful in everything. The breakfast was delicious and they had a great variety of food. The rooms are being cleaned daily and are very cozy.The pool was always clean and well maintained. All prices are affordable. A quite place and not that crouded, even with children staying at the hotel. The beach is clean and nearby with fine sand. There is possible to take trips in the surrounding areas. Ask at the reception for guidance. You can rent a car or book bustrips for reasonable prices.
Cons: The hotel is a 3 star hotel , there are small things yet to adjust ,but that wasn't something to bother us. There's no coffeemaker something I personally would have liked to have in the room, but I got a waterpot instead. We enjoyed our staying fully and we intend to be staying there again.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a great stay here, all the hotel staff is so very helpful and friendly, treating us as dear guests. Hotel is very clean, has a great sea view, big pool and offers very nice breakfast. It has a good location - it is the first line to the sea, beach starts directly after hotel pool area. Some nice shops and cafes are at walking distance including big supermarket Sklabents where you can buy literally everything. At 15 minutes walking distance there starts a long touristic Amoudara street filled with souvenir shops and restaurants. Near the hotel there is a bus stop from which you can take a bus to Heraklion (city center, port, airport - everywhere) or Knossos where the ruins of ancient castle are situated. We stayed with a toddler and really enjoyed combination of quietness of the place and the accessibility of all attractions and activities within 15-30 minutes of travel time. Thanks a lot to the hotel staff!!

8.8 Excellent
Pros: You get exactly what you pay for, the hotel is lovely. The service at the pool bar was so fantastic and it was one of the highlights of my trip, as was the relaxing pool. The location was a short walk to lots of nice restaurants and the port.
Cons: On the day of arrival I needed to grab a phone charger out of my suitcase. One staff member told me it was okay, so I opened my suitcase in the lounge at reception, a few moments later I was approached by another staff member who got quite angry and said if I wanted to open my suitcase I would need to go down to the basement. Thankfully by the time he came over I had already grabbed what I needed and was in the process of zipping my suitcase back up, but he was extremely rude.
7.5 Good
Pros: The hotel itself was nice, room was generous, had a balcony and the pool facilities were fantastic. We were celebrating and they left a cake in our room, which was a lovely touch.
Cons: At check in, the ladies seemed great and helpful. They offered to order us a taxi at €25, which we accepted. Later on the night before we were due to leave, we discovered the taxi hadn’t been booked and actually, if you book on the day (it took 10 seconds on the day), it is €10-15 cheaper. On check out, the man at the desk was rude and very unhelpful. We asked if we could put our bags behind the desk while we had an early breakfast and he said we could leave them in the lobby unattended, we declined this.

Cons: Not serving anything on the beach side, drinks and food very low quality, the overall experience was very low quality and disappointing Beach bar was operating like a cheap self service take-away, no atmosphere of holiday at all but rather an old retirement plan

Only a short inexpensive taxi trip from airport, close to capital but totally peaceful and quiet, located in the centre of the island so ideal for visiting all sides of the island on a day trip if you wish Only 15 minutes from Knossos Brilliant choice of hotel!!
Cons: departing
7.5 Good
Pros: The food is very really good and we had every day New options in the menu. We booked a standard bangalow but when we arrived we were upgraded to a premium one, which was bigger and much nicer.
Cons: Most of the workers in the hotel were nice and ready to help, but some of them were very unfriendly to us before we even spoke to them! We had no idea why !
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Restorans, beach
Cons: No coffe , tea during the lunch, diner
7.0 Good
Pros: I liked all of the extra sports they offered as well as the beach itself. It was a nice beach in a good location in town where we were able to shop and eat out when needed. I also thought the room was beautiful and liked how there were individual bungalows and that they came equipped with a patio and a drying rack.
Cons: I didn't like the bed or the pillows as they were too hard and I couldn't sleep. I also didn't like how the resort had live music everynight that I could hear from my room while I was trying to sleep, making it hard to fall asleep and stay asleep. We were also given wristbands that they put on us at check-in, but they weren't explained to us and we couldn't get them off without cutting them, which was terrible as a tan. The staff had also explained to us that there was wifi throughout the whole resort, but we didn't get wifi in our room at all and had to go out on the patio towards the ocean to get it. This made it hard to communicate with family and organize our trips we had planned. And for the price I paid, I don't think it was worth the 2 nights even after we were upgraded to a different room. I paid for half-board as well which means breakfast and dinner were included, but the food was a bit of a let down as well. It was served at their restaurant buffet-style, and there were not many choices for non-alcoholic drinks. Lastly, the AC wouldn't shut off or move temperatures and the shower filled up because the drain must have been clogged. Overall it was not the best experience.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: High class hotel! The food is varied, the place is clean, the cabins are nice between plants and flowers, a large pool and a few meters from the sea. A friendly crew and a real assistant we enjoyed every moment ... A little suggestion for improvement, we came from a country that people dont eat pork so maybe put some more dishes from beef..
7.5 Good
Pros: The staff was excellent, they were very helpful and friendly! Loved the fact that our bungalow was right on the beach. The bungalow was cleaned daily, incl. mopping, bathroom cleaning of sand etc.
Cons: The breakfast was poor quality, scrambled eggs seemed to be mixed in with something else to make more of them. The coffee was terrible and juices tasted like the cheap ones from the carton boxes you get for less than a euro. Wifi was also very very poor, we barely had any in our bungalow.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very pleasant beach front hotel with good breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet. Rooms were simple, clean and serviceable and staff was friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
Cons: The onsite parking that is advertised is a public car park where survival of the fittest is the rule. The private car park holds 2-3 cars max. You might want to avoid room #103 as it is directly next to the kitchen and quite noisy until late night.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: In general everything was as expected. The stuff is very helpful and the facilities are very clean.
Cons: Without being annoying, our room was a bit loud because it was next to the staircase.

Cons: Shower was broken.

Pros: Rooms were modern. Entertainment representative was very good. Greek food options at buffet were excellent. Location on beach with mountain views was stunning. Staff were very friendly and even before we arrived sorted our big family party accommodation out by email efficiently. Swimming pool and surrounding area kept crystal clean.

Pros: Amazing food, all included, what an experience! Very nice staff. We got in after dinner hours, however they allowed us to eat after hours without any problem. When the lunch was closing, they also warned us to get any last thing before they pick up, very attencious. The pool and views are great. They also have shows and diversions for the guests! 5 ⭐️
Cons: The room design and quality is something to improve in the feature. No big deal, but a suggestion.

Pros: I liked almost everything. Good food. The service staff is great! All problems are solved without delay. Friendly people work at the reception desk. Nikoletta is a very professional manager. Vacationers happy to each other. We have been visiting Neptuno Beach for four years already in May. And we dream to come again.
Cons: We liked everything. However, animation should be more professional.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Larry spacious clean rooms, great location.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Great price for the offer of all inclusive.
Cons: That everything felt a little bit more underrated as the stars given to this hotel. Despite a sign signalling that no sun beds are to be reserved ... nearly all were ahead of breakfast (despite only a couple of people using them). I think it's important to have hotel house rules but they should not just be window-dressing. Every guest ought to have a right to use all of the facilities. Reserving seats or sun beds is absolutely ridiculous and staff should (as the so-called rules by the poolside state) should remove the pegs that hold towels there. Or better still, remind guests on their arrival that reserving sun loungers/beds is against house rules. Certain cultures whether it be German or British have no right to impose such archaic traditions on any other holidaymakers.

Pros: People,hotel,service and food fantastic,almost on the beach. Really recommnended.

6.8 Good
Pros: Staff of this property is extremely polite.
Cons: Breakfast was horrible. The omelette was tasteless and over cooked. The orange juice is far from being a normal juice, tastes bitter and concentrated mixed with water. Pictures are misleading, requested and paid for a room with balcony and a view as on the photos, we got a room with a small balcony on the backside of the hotel. With one chair only, the view was far from seeing the sea and we could only see the backside/balconies of other apartments. As a couple we had two separated beds put together (even though we requested for one bed) One bed was higher then the other and looked/felt like an extra foldable bed that was put inside the room. The air condition was extremely noisy.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: Stuff was very helpful and friendly (special txs for Stefanos), location - 30 steps and you are in downtown. Design of the room as in pictures - even if it is in a narrow building - the room was spacious. If you like small hotels - excellent quite place with reasonable price even in the middle of tourism hot season!
Cons: well, maybe 2 small things - shower cabin is a bit narrow. Breakfast selection might be bit wider - but on the other hand - you are in Greece, in city downtown - so big choice to take breakfast in any other open cafe, restaurant if you expect more then normally you have at your own kitchen...

Pros: Friendly hosts, great location, exceptional comfort and cleanliness.
Cons: Breakfast could be a little more varied. More building than hotel.

Pros: Friendly staff and a good location in town for our visit to Heraklion.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: If you are looking for a hotel close to the archaeological museum, this is perfectly located just half a short street away. The breakfast choice is extensive and does vary slightly each day. I have not seen candied figs and lemons at breakfast in Greece before. The staff make sure tables are cleared efficiently, so although it's clearly a busy hotel, we never felt rushed. The breakfast room has been recently updated and is a nice space to eat. The roof top terrace has plenty of seating and although it's quite a big hotel, we never felt we were in a crowd. We had an issue with our air conditioning unit on day one, we mentioned it at reception when we went out for our evening meal and it was sorted by the time we got back.
Cons: Slightly impersonal feel to the hotel, partly because there were large parties just staying a night or two. The furniture was a bit tired and dated, as was the bathroom which was very dark. Some days the poolside music was too loud. I did ask if it could be turned down in the area where I was sitting (with nobody else in view. or earshot, so i didn't feel I would be imposing my preferences) but the lady politely explained it was not possible. The next 2 days - no pool music at all, so not sure what the policy is....
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Good breakfast, good location
Cons: Loud Music to 2 A.M., hard to sleep
9.4 Excellent
Pros: The location is with walking distance of the port, bus station, and local attractions. The staff was helpful in arranging an extra night there, and they were helpful in every way.
Cons: The bed was not as soft as I need with a sore back, but the room had lots of extra pillows.
7.1 Good
Pros: Astoria Capsis is located in the heart of Heraklion near major sites and shopping opportunities. You can easily walk to a lot of archaeological sites like the former fortress docks & harbours. There are a lot places to eat and shopping close by.
Cons: No fitness center for exercise. There weren't a lot of choice for their breakfast. Can be noisy. My room had a noticeable sway for no apparent reason, possibly the foundation of the building was not stable.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Mum was hospitalized from a heart attack in Crete. Staff were amazing, efficient and kind.
Cons: Toilet flush was broken. No shower curtain so entire bathroom ends up soaking wet. No decent make up mirror. Very noisy from outside and music from the bar. Otherwise perfect!
