“Great hotel, centrally located in the Mesara region”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

The hotel is perfectly located so one can see all the sights in the region. And it's a block away from the beach and taverns of Kokkinos Pirgos. Niko, the owner, is friendly and helpful. If you are planning to explore the area, this is the place to stay.

Kokkinos Pirgos is quite the wee seaside town and the Little Inn hotel does perfectly fit in.
A small hotel (roughly 50 rooms) making it quite peaceful, a small swimming pool at the center and the staff is so amazingly nice and helpful.
No meals to be taken at the hotel apart from breakfast (the latter not missing anything by the way) but so many nice taverns do cater for it and allow to get more involved with the locals.
The beach and seaside bars are just 100-150 meters from the hotel.
One bit to be improved for the hotel : the "fitness" room where there is a lack of equipment and the machines are a bit out of date.
Last point, the place is actually not a much of a resort for tourists which makes it truly nice but you have to get ready to travel to the next city (2 kilometers) to find an ATM and a car is definitely needed to go around.

Room Tip: Prefer a 1st floor room with terrace facing the pool. Avoid rooms with street view as there can be...

A quiet little hotel, where you can feel at home.
Small but well equipped rooms, with small but clean bathrooms.
Breakfast buffet is a bit ordinary, but good. The hotel has no restaurant, but a lot of good tavernas are within walking distance.
Efficient and nice personnel.
Please notice: it's a 3 star, not a 4 star hotel, but if you are looking for a quiet accomodation at a very reasonable price... tha't the ideal place!

We had a wonderful holiday in Little Inn. I had been to the hotel before, but my boyfriend hadn't. The hotel is now renovated and looks great. Kokkinos Pirgos, where the hotel is located, is really small, so you need a car. But the quiet area was for us a real comfort. You can go to the beach and eat something by only taking a few steps. The rooms are clean and comfortable.

If you want a relaxed holiday and you like being in a quiet environment then I can really recomment this hotel!

First of All the staff was very nice but unfortunately this hotel needs some improvement. First of all the situation of the hotel is disappointing. These are the ugliest beaches from Crete and the town itself is not very exciting neither. The villages Matala and Agia Galini 15 minutes drive are very nice. The part of the hotel where we stayed looked renovated. It looked very nice. However the door had difficulties closing from the inside. This is a so called environment friendly hotel. Therefore bedsheets and towels are not cleaned everyday. Every day the cleaning ladies put the sheets in a kind of butterfly. Result is that you need to make up your bed everyday. Furthermore I saw some strange things happening at the pool. The dogs from the hotel drinking water from the pool. And after the cleaning ladies cleaned the floor with water and soap they drag the water into the pool. For those who like salty breakfast there is not a lot of choice boiled eggs everyday and once a week sausages. Our room had a nice flat screen however it could only capture Greek and German channels.

We really enjoyed staying at Little Inn with our three children this August. The Hotel is really lovely and the service excellent. Tina and Nikos are both really friendly and helpful, as are all the staff employed there. The rooms are lovely and spotlessly clean. We took their package deal which included a car and found that Kokkinos Pirgos is well positioned for touring southern Crete. Would recommend visiting Matala which has some lovely restaurants. Kokkinos Pirgos is a small village but the local taverna opposite serves delicious food, with a beautiful view and great service. We would recommend for a laid back holiday. Thank you to the owners!
