We are a family of four who have spent 11 days on this great hotel. The staff is very kind, friendly, and helpful. The most attractive feature of this hotel is it's geography; very close to the best restaurants, 2 minutes walk to center of the city (the long strips of a thousand shops and restaurants etc.), and 5 minutes...

I love Panos, who is the owner of Mythos. He was a lot of fun, always happy, and couldn't do enough to make you happy. He is what Cretan hospitality is known for. He serves up a hardy breakfast which is great if you have a hangover, or if you just want to relax and enjoy the morning. The location... More

We have stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. The apartment itself is really spacious and quite clean (accept 1 big cockroach we found one night), close to main street and few nice Taverna's. Its located on Top of the little Hill, however it was difficult to find for us as there are no signs in the main street. We... More

I stayed at Mythos in July 2011. As it is a 2-star hotel I did not have very high expectations, but I must say for the price I payed it is an absolute gem! The only negatives: there was a litte wear and tear in the aparment, like some tiles in the bathroom being chipped, but since the apartment was... More

Have just returned from an 11 day stay at the Mythos Platanias apartments and cannot recommend it highly enough. The apartment was spacious & immaculately clean [apart from Sundays, room is serviced daily] with a lovely balcony. The shower doesn't have a curtain but until very recently this was the norm in Greece, so wasn't a difficulty to us. And... More

We went to the Mythos Apartments for a week at the end of October 2009 We are aged 62 and 54 (both with a young outlook). First of all can I say that the hill which keeps getting mentioned in reviews was not a problem for us - OK it is there but you know that before you book. The... More

Fancy some people moaning about the hill! Must be some unfit people out there. Admittedly if elderly or infirm the Mythos isnt for you but anyone of average fitness should cope ok. Location away from the main resort is ideal and half way to the old village where the best restaurants are. I would recommend the Agklioma (sp) which is... More
