The hotel consists of small glimpses into 2 floors with views of both the beach / baseng and back gardens. The... More

We checked trip advisor reviews on the hotel only after having booked and paid our holiday package. I was quite scared due to the negative reviews and made sure I kept my expectations and my husband's to their lowest... We got to Chania Airport, took a taxi (recommended) and got to Hotel Erato before midday. The entrance of the hotel... More

I didn't have many expectations after the bad reviews here at Tripadvisor. The hotel was booked by a family member and I had to say in this, but must say it turned out to be a very good choice indeed. The rooms were very spacious with a great kichenette that had everything you need for light cooking. I have never... More

Our first impression of the hotel was not good at all. The room we got was not properly cleaned , there were personal belonings from earlier guests in the bathroom and the fridge and the room was full of mosquitos. The childrens' extra beds had blood stains, as did the double bed. The walls had stains on them, and one... More
