We have just spent three nights experiencing Katerina's amazing hospitality. The rooms are basic but comfortable and ours was spacious.My wife was ill during our stay and Katerina was very solicitous and caring. Her breakfast is probably unique and provided an ample picnic lunch in the bag given to us. This was our third visit and we hope to return.

Read all the previous reviews and Katerina gets all the praise, and for good reason. Despite knowing only a few words of English, she welcomes you upon arrival into her dining room, sits you down by the fire, and proceeds to bring hot drinks and homemade snacks. She then shows you to your room, a simple yet clean, comfortable, quiet,... More

We'll hardly forget our stay here and for sure we'll return to Mama Katerina. Delicious breakfast from a wide choice of home made pastry. Stylish lobby and dining area. Furniture meant to be stylish but truly they're just old; however they fit to the place and create a comfortably old fashioned atmosphere. Staff is helpful and very friendly. Don't miss... More

In mid October we were looking how to spend our last few nights on Crete before a return to Athens. We had previously seen the town of Zaros, the Hotel Keramos and Katerina discussed on Trip Advisor, so we booked there just two days before. Fortunately a room was available. We departed from Chania in the AM and arrived in... More

We stayed for seven nights at the end of October. On arrival we were welcomed by Katerina's beaming smile, she bought us tea coffee and cakes and showed us to our room, despite her speaking not a word of English, we couldn't have felt more welcome. Breakfast each day was truly an event with each item described by Angela and... More

We stayed for three nights at Hotel Keramos and loved it! The rooms in this hotel were furnished with antiques local to the area. You could tell that "Mama Katerina" took pride in the place as everything was tastefully arranged and very clean. The bed was comfortable and we were pleased that we could access WiFi from our room –... More

We were welcomed with a drink and fruit. The room was just great with a nice view over the village. The next morning we had the world famous Keramos breakfast. Well, it was overwhelming. For us it was our food for the entire day! We got it served by a German lady who moved to the Island 5 years ago.... More

When we first booked this hotel in Zaros we were somewhat concerned that it was in the middle of nowhere. However, while it is off the beaten track (thankfully) it is wonderfully located for day trips to the beach, archeological sites, and monasteries. The hotel itself is a true gem. With its welcoming warm hospitality, the fabulous breakfast, and genuinely... More

Our two nights at Keramos, in the beautifully positioned village of Zaros, were memorable. This wasn't down to the quality of the soap, the depth of the carpet or the complementary slippers (there weren't any thankfully). It was entirely down to the warmth of the welcome, the continued hospitality and the memories we've left with. Everything you'll have read about... More
