One can experience some of the best Sfakian food on offer in this village if was to wander along the waterfront towards its western end to the Lefka Ori. Run by Kyrios Andreas and his handsome three sons they offer traditional food of the best quality and a service to match. This is one of the favourite places that repeat... More

An inexpensive base for an overnight stay, this Hotel provides an option of walking the Imbros Gorge even on an ultra low budget. Chora Sfakion is a sleepy little community around a small bay with restaurants lining every inch of the water front. The arrival of a ferry brings the place to life for a while with a fresh influx...

We loved this place, simple, clean, excellent food, very friendly family. If you want to relax, have good food, plenty of things to do and just enjoy the simple beauty of the place, this is where to go.

The rooms were what we come to Crete for, very simple with shower and toilet as we were either out walking swimming eating drinking, or on the balcony overlooking the sea or asleep in bed. The village is quiet at night and the beds OK so we slept well. The owners were welcoming and friendly. If you wan luxury go... More

Firstly, i wouldnt recommend staying in hora sfakion at all. The town is boring and there's nothing to do. We stayed there on the way to glyka nera, and we slept two nights in lefka ori. The family which owns the place was very nice and welcoming and the restaurant they own was good, but the room itself was the... More

A family very welcoming. A really cretan's house with beautiful blue and white in the room. A nice facade front of the port. The cooking was excelent with local delicious products. All the family is pleasant. The room was clean and quite roomy. Break-fast was luscious (honey, cheese, and sweet fresh orange juice). A nice and quiet place.

We spent two nights at the hotel. The first night we stayed in a small clean room that had a balcony without a sea view. The second night we asked for a room with a sea view and were given a lovely apartment overlooking the sea! The staff were very helpful and friendly and we enjoyed the food served at... More

We stayed for a week in Lefka Ori and everything was great! A family establishment that paid particular attention to every guest! A really nice hotel and a great tavern, where we tasted all kinds of Cretan specialties. The family also owns a small cafe, which is next to the tavern, so we had everything that we wanted. Rooms are... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The hosts are very welcoming and have great suggestions of things to do. Great hub to explore all the beaches in the area, do some hiking and relax. English is perfect and hospitality is phenomenal and everybody is friendly.
