The hotel is old and very basic. Not even nearly a 3-star. It seems that all rooms was bought out by Russian tour operator, so 99% of visitors are Russians.
There is no beach near the hotel! There are 2 beaches within 10min walk from the hotel - one belongs to Mirabello hotel, the other is municipal.
The hotel is very far from the city center with cafes & shops, so if you don't drive a car, consider staying in another hotel or paying 15eur for a return trip (2x during the night).
Shower is so small you can't even stoop down without splashing water on the floor. The notice on the wall is mocking you with "thank you for taking a shower, not a bath" line :)
You have to pay 5eur/day for the air conditioner. You have to pay 3 eur/day for the safe.
Food is decent, but average. Breakfast is always the same. They stopped offering feta cheese for the last week we stayed there.
The hotel offers free bottled water in the main bar & pool bar along with other drinks.
The rooms are small,
Overall impression: Good for bed&breakfast for the travelers who intend to rent a car and explore Crete on their own.
Not suitable for beach & hotel leisure.
