We lived in this hotel for 10 days,and we have only warm impressions about it. Elderly couple-owners of the hotel-create the home atmosphere.You feel,like you visit your own grandmother and grandfather.They even have a kitchen-garden on the territory of the hotel! Our room was clean, we had a balcony with a view on sunrise.The beach was rather far away,but we... More

Nice hotel but make sure you get the right Hotel Irene (Ireni) Hotel Irene in Crete, near to Heraklion, is a pleasant traditional hotel which is away from other hotels, but very near the bus stop. The pool was great and the room was good with nice views. A few friends of Dorothy were staying here. The hotel is situated... More

The only reviews we could find for this hotel before we went were from a few years ago, and were less than impressive, so we were a little apprehensive. However, I’m happy to say that things have obviously changed for the better. Firstly, the hotel stands next to the Old National Road, giving very good connections. It’s only 15 minutes... More

We have just returned from the hotel and must be honest it left alot to be desired in terms of location, cleanliness and quality of food. The hotel is a bit remote-much more than 400m from the beach. If you like walking it took about 45 mins to reach Gouves along the seafront (nice bars to stop at on the... More

This is the worst place we have stayed in and it gives Crete a bad name. Avoid at all costs, even the paint off the pool came off when you put... More
