“Friendly, comfortable, clean and inexpensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Dimitra gave us a really warm welcome when we arrived, and was super-friendly throughout our stay. The room was clean, bright, and surprisingly spacious for the price. It was decorated with paintings and Dimitra's own hand-made crafts, which were very well done and gave a nice personal touch. There was also a large bathroom and a kitchen with fridge, sink, utensils and basic cooking facilities, and there was a swimming pool at the back of the hotel (it looked great, but we didn't use it). The location is great - it's slightly out of Kalyves town centre, which makes it nice and quiet, but it's an easy 5-minute walk to the town centre and the beach. There's also a bus-stop right outside for buses to Chania. Highly recommended - would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: The wifi router is on the top floor, and the signal doesn't reach all the rooms. So if it's...

L ovely apartment, birght, clean, spacious and well equiped with a sea view and balcony. The hosts went that extra mile to make you feel welcome giving small gifts of authentic local food through out our stay. The pool was great after a hot day out and about and sitting on balcony watching world go by or granny tending vegtables and chickens gave in homely feel.
It is within walking distance of 2 beaches, the main square, restraunts and local shops. Parking is across the road as is bus stop for those of you who want to explore the many lovely beaches and tocal tavernas. The combination of wonderful hosts, lovely studio and great location made this one of our best h.olidays to day and would recommend highly

We arrived later than arranged but our welcome could not have been more genuine. We have stayed in several apartments/accommodations in Kalyves but this comes out tops! Parking is very easy and the short walk into the "square" was very much appreciated in the evenings, especially back again after our dinner. The studios sparkle and are extremely comfortable - we felt really at home. Everything is to hand for the self-caterer, if you can be bothered. The pool was especially appreciated after a hot day on the beach or travelling about. We watched the vegetables grow in the garden inch by inch and the dawn chorus plus a chicken or two was the only background noise, comfortably familiar to anyone who lives in the country.
All in all we would definitely return but think about booking early - a gem like this will be discovered by more and more holidaymakers in the years to come.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back get the sun from mid=day til dusk and no traffic noise.

We've enjoyed our stay at Dimitra Studios very much. Clean and beautiful rooms, done to perfection. Nice short walk to Kalives village, ocean right on the doorstep. Close to Chania. The best stay in Crete. Extremly friendly people, you feel at home and welcome straight away. A great insight to greek hospitality. Thank you so much dear Dimitra and Mama...

This is a really really nice and a special place. I thougt from the homepage that it would be fine but it was moor than fine. At arrival there was some food and goodies to welcome us. I told Dimitra at one time that I liked stuffed toamatos and a day or two she brought me some. How nice isnt that.
The room was spacey and very well equipt.
The hotel was at a perfect spot in the willage, just between the two beaches.
I hope to teturn some day.

My Husband and I recently took a flight to Chania and at the last minute decided to stay in the quiet and beautiful Kalives. We rented an apartment at Dimitras. The owner and her family were most welcoming. The studios/apartment's are very clean and well decorated in the Cretian style. We returned to stay another night before leaving Crete. The location has views of the sea and is peaceful for a great night sleep. Dimitra has a pool and all rooms have air-conditioning. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a self catering apartment at a very good price.
Many thanks Dimitra and Family x.

Room Tip: All rooms are well decorated and positioned. The Family will help with any advice. Great.
