A city hotel, within walking distance from downtown, with comfortable rooms, and average service. We were supposed to check in at 14:00, but were shown to our room 3 hours later, exhausted and disappointed to discover it wasn't worth the money. The bathroom had not been thoroughly cleaned, and there were smells coming from the windows that overlooked an internal... More

only bad comment would be the need to change the mattresses. If this takes place, it would definitely shift the hotel one star from me. Excellent staff, VERY helpful! very tasteful breakfast and with a wide variety

We had originally planned on staying at a cheaper hotel but glad we spent the extra 20 euros and went to the Capsis Astoria. The room was spacious and on an upper floor giving us a really good view. The staff were very helpful and courteous. We only had a snack in the coffee bar which was very nice and... More

Broken glass on room desk could easily harm a kid and not only. Have you ever heard of an awarded breakfast with fake orange juice, especially on an island whose oranges are top quality? That said, staff was very helpful and polite, and the rooms were clean.

The hotel was in an excellent location close to all parts of the old town, including the galleries and museums. We like walking and so were able to walk to all the recommended sites. There is a local bus stop a few meters away which is good for the bus to the Palace Knossos and the Archeaolgical Museum is only... More

One time I go out after the breakfast and I emerged in the shopping street - clothes, shoes, jewellery, souvenirs, etc.. It was too difficult to do not buy anything! In the evening - another temptation: too many colorful, lovely bars and restaurants around - I couldn't finish the party (Greek music, rock, jazz, swing, Latin). And the worse was... More

This hotel was in a really central spot, opposite the main square and 100metres to the excellent Archaeological Museum. The bus stop to Knossos was right out the front and it was only a five minute walk to the local buses to other regions of the island. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and the breakfast was great. Many... More

one of the most reasonable and convenient hotel on Certe.Neighboring to the Archaeological Museum,and next to the bus stop direct to the Knossos Palace.Also they can offer you some guided tours, eg, Samaria Gorge hike. Try its sour soup at the breakfast buffet.
