This is a nice hotel, though we were very disappointed with our stay. It was our Wedding Anniversary (a milestone one!!) and I had told them that and asked for a room upstairs with a view of the water. We were given one downstairs near the office. I was told there was none available upstairs but later that day I... More

Clean, good location, friendly staff in a fun little village. Convenient off street parking. The people in the village are all helpful and seem to work together and support each other. Great restaurants all over town, and nice umbrellas and lounge chairs at the sandy beach.

We stayed one day/night as part of our trip around Crete. A small-ish hotel, we received a friendly welcome. The room was clean and comfortable, with an old-ish bathroom and a very small terrace that's right on the pathway to other rooms (so not at all private). The hotel is very well located 100 metres from the beach (but no... More

Beautiful position in the center of the village, only two minutes walk to the beach of Matala and the famous caves. Our room was provided of a very useful terrace. Friendly staff. Easy free parking 50 meters from the hotel.

We only stayed one night here while driving around Crete and were very impressed by the atmosphere of this small family owned hotel. The rooms are basic but spotless, they are air conditioned (necessary for a good sleep on hot nights) and have a little terrace each. Then there is the lovely shaded central area filled with trees where you... More

Our hotelier in Sissi searched the web and found the Hotel Nikos for us for an overnight stay whilst we were touring southern Crete. It turned out to be a very good choice - spacious room, well air coditioned and very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is situated close to the main shops and restaurants and...

Nikos is a lovely hotel owned by friendly people in a superb location only a few minutes from the tavernas and beach. We had a great stay and recommend. Bed was a little hard for our liking. Ask for level 3!

We stayed 3 nights here. This is a good hotel from which to visit the Matala area, close to the shopping and beach areas, and the Red Beach trail. We got the "room with sea view", which is actually a penthouse room (the only one), Very nice studio, with a view of the bay and the cliff with the famous... More
