Up there for value amongst greek islands traveled so far. Rooms are spacious, and nice breeze in from the balcony. Beach short stroll from hotel. Can't agree more with other reviews, by far best asset is the host. Left my phone down the road and he promptly drove me to where I left it, when dialling it didn't receive an... More

Beach is very close, though quite windy when i was there. The hotel features a swimming pool anyway. The view from the beach is awesome. Rooms quite cheap, good value for money. But the best feature of this hotel is definitely its host, Fragiskos. Always ready to help you or make conversation !

Nice quainte hotel in Amoudara. It is quite some distance from the center of Heraklion but it only cost 1.4 euros to get into the city center. Really freindly staff; Fragiskos and two British members who were also very hospitalble. Well equipped rooms and not many guest mean there was load of spare space around the pool and the young...

The hotel is located at the end of a narrow, dark, not very friendly cul-de-sac. It overlooks an empty lot that's used for trash dump. The smell is pretty bad. Pretty far from the city center, a good 10-15 min walk to the beach, and at least another 20 min walk to find a good beach spot. The hotel itself... More

We accidentally booked this property exactly one week ahead of the intended date. Fortunately, the staff member (I think it was something like Francisco, sorry!) was very helpful and solved our mistake. At the end of the stay he bought our unused bus tickets - we thought that was nice. The studios themselves were very spacious (we stayed in two... More

Excellent rate price/room and services quality. Our studio was large, the kitchen completely equipped, very comfortable, very clean. Swimming pool was clean and surrounded by trees and flowers. Mr. Fragiskos is a wonderful person, very warm (like all the staff) and ready to assist all tourists. The hotel is near the beach, shops, tavernas and bus station to Heraklion. Altogether,... More

My experience in crete was good. Manos Studios may be far from Heraklion but because the bus is so cheap, the location wasn't an issue. Moreover, there is a lovely nearby beach not far from Amoudara with a decent amount of tourist. It is the sort of beach if you do not like too many crowds. Manos studios was very... More

I had a wonderful stay at Manos Studios Hotel in Amoudara, Crete. With many budget hotels, you sometimes have to sacrifice comfort--this is not the case with Manos Studios Hotel. Each room is equipped with a kitchenette, the beds are comfortable, the rooms and the bathrooms are clean. The location is great as well. It's about a five minute walk... More

I am traveling on a working vacation...taking photos and videos for archaeology. Found this place on HostelWorld...what a great place! The manager of seven years, Francisco, what excellent...nothing we asked for was denied or obfuscated. I needed an extra pillow for my neck...no problem. One morning I really needed a cup of coffee...no problem. I will be going back again,... More
