It was amazing time in Melpo and I'm glad I chose Melpo to stay. I was in Hersonissos in October, it's the end of the season, the weather was sunny and hot, excellent one to be on the beach (and not only). It's 3 stars hotel, very comfortable and cozy. Administrators were very friendly! Nice, light, clean room, I didn't... More

Small hotel in the center, but very quiet. My room was very nice, everything was what needed there, really clean. When you get up, you see sun, sky and mountains from the window - what else can you look for? Restaurants, beautiful beaches, clubs - you can reach in max.10 minutes! Very friendly, cute and funny staff, always helpful and... More

The hotel is ideally situated in the centre of everything that makes Hersonissos a must visit summer destination. Location and value for money were the two main reasons for choosing Melpo hotel. Once there, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of service, friendliness of staff and exceptionally cleanliness of the room. We had two great weeks in Crete and... More

I really enjoyed staying at the Melpo, it's convenient for the shops and beaches,staff were great,although the owner seemed a little unapproachable ! Had to get room changed as they gave us a twin when we had booked a double,but that was rectified easily,all in all would def go back.

Location is perfect! Just on the main street of Hersonissos. That means everything you could ever need is close at hand (pubs, bars, banks, car rental, shops and of course the beach, which is just 5 minutes walking from the hotel...). Rooms are very clean and comfortable. We booked a 3 beds room and we experienced no problem fitting all... More
