The accommodation is very basic, but I like it, as I am not here to watch TV. The room is clean, has AC (which is free, and as far as I know it's a rare bonus for cheap Cretan hotels), shower,closet. The only minus is there's no fridge. The pool is quite decent and looks very clean. Everything I need... More

Location here is great, and rooms are air conditioned. Love the staff, who don't speak much English are really warm and wonderful. We stayed here for two weeks with a Global Volunteers program, so got to be pretty at home in this hotel. Kids loved the pool, and the balcony and colored flowers are so beautiful. However, I would never... More

Hotel Handakas has a good location close to the beach, supermarkets, small shops and bus stop. Heraklion (City center) can be reached by a short bus trip and tickets cost 1.50 euro if purchased in supermarket or 2 euro paid directly to the bus driver. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed/slept there for a week and the... More

We had trouble finding the hotel, then found it to be noisy - you could hear other patrons opening and closing doors and had a rooms that had been smoked in. That being said the room was clean and fine for one night with an adequate breakfast. The pool looked pretty and the staff were helpful.

This hotel is everything you need.The welcoming Handakas family will go out of their way to make your stay the best. The rooms are clean with comfortable, firm beds and despite what others have said, not particularly small, air-con, and all with a balcony complete with table and chairs. The en-suite bathroom only has a shower but there is plenty... More

We spent 2 weeks here arranged by Global Volunteers as we taught English in Crete. The hotel is fairly small but well-kept and clean. The rooms are on the small side and somewhat spartan (pun intended!). All the rooms have balconies. What sets this hotel apart is the family that runs it. They are so warm, caring, and helpful. We...

Very nice and cheap hotel. The price is perfect and the rooms are nice and clean. Its near the city with buses and shops nearby. Perfect for a family on a budget. The swimming pool is not big but clean. I used the grass area for sunbathing. The staff is pleasant and helpfull.

Cheerful owner but he needed help from his friend working in the hotel to communicate in English. They had a buffet breakfast in the lobby/bar with cereals, bread, buns, eggs ham and cheese. Coming late from dining in the village nearby you have to enter from the back door (next to the swimming pool) instead of reception. If i came... More

Stayed here for one night following a very early morning arrival into Heraklion airport and not wishing to drive to Chania until some rest was had. Hotel only 10 mins drive from the airport and very easy to find. Arrived at the hotel at 01.30hrs and rang the bell for the owner to let us in as pre-arranged. Bedroom quite... More

It was small, nice three star hotel with beautiful garden full of flowers. The hotel was placed about 10 min walk from center of the city, and 3 min to nearest shop. The beach was 15 min walk from the hotel.
