When we arrived at the well signposted Keramos Hotel in the small mountain village of Zaros, our lovely 'yaya' (grandma / hostess) immediately greeted us with coffee and sweets. Our room on the second floor (there is a lift) was well proportioned, comfortable and clean with a balcony overlooking a small side street. All the restaurants in the village were... More

This brilliant and personal bed and brekfast place should be visited. Excellent nice reception by the hosts - a nice older lady, who obviously have put their honor that people should be happy and feel welcome. That they have the "most famous" breakfast on Crete is not bragging - but true! Had we been there a week we would probably... More

Stayed 5 nights in October and would highly recommend this accommodation as one of the best value for money stays in Crete. Zaros is a thriving community, not over run with mass tourism. A good location in the centre of the Island for walking and trips to the South Coast. Katerina the owner prepares her famous breakfast of pastries which... More

Last month, at the beginning of September, we spent (unfortunately) one night in Studio Keramos in Zaros. We were looking something like this. Nice accommodation in mountains. We must say that it was a very nice experience. Nice clean spacious double room with balcony and stunning views of the mountain hills. The staff was very friendly, personable and careful. A... More

I just drove into Zaros and saw this hotel. Should have looked at others. Room was basic, OK. They raved about breakfast, a MUST, but was not good! They bring out some 10-15 little cakes, some sweet some salty. That is it. I ate two and left. If say, skip breakfast....and check out other hotels.

Zaros is an attractive village and doesn't feel over-run by tourist. The local people are friendly. Keramos has excellent rooms and a most charming owner Katerina whose prepares the mass of pastries and buns which cover the breakfast table and provide more than enough for picnics and, in our case, the evening meal on some occasions. Good walking right from... More

Bernie and Grégoire, Paris very good welcome by friendly people, belonging to the same family. Big and lovely room decorated traditionally. Silent, only noise coming from animals as if you are sleeping in a farm. The pride of the place is their breakfast, which includes indeed lots of various salty and sweet stuff, that you can carry with you for... More

Changing our Crete travel plans a bit, we called up Hotel Keramos the day before our visit to Zaros, reached the delightful owner/manager Vivi, and she assured us we'd have a choice of rooms (at 40 Euro a night, which turned out to be substantially less than what the online booking sites were charging for the better rooms - though...

We were a party of 8 walkers visiting various parts of Crete and finding wonderful hospitality from the Hotel Keramos. The family run hotel could not have been more welcoming or helpful and with an amazing breakfast. The rooms were good and the connection with a local restaurant was really helpful. I could not recommend this small hotel more highly.
