We booked ourselves a room for two nights at the end of March using an online service and ended up staying an extra night because we were enjoying ourselves so much. Our room was clean and comfortable with a small but adequate ensuite shower room and plenty of hot water. Our balcony looked straight out across the bay to Spinalonga.... More

view from balcony great, no shelf in fridge door, bedside cabinet fell off the wall when book was placed on it, shower/toilet awful condition, had to use bleach and anti bacterial wipes on everything but still couldn't get rid of smell. towels so stiff didn't need to exfoliate skin. Cabinet fixed after 12 days.
