“Economical and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

We stayed two nights and found the staff very friendly and helpful.

Unfortunately there was an odour to do with the plumbing of our room which was otherwise good.

The buffet was very good but I felt some of the fresh fruit items at breakfast were below par.

We had stayed 3 years ago and it was a bad 2 stars hotel with many problems and complains from our side but last year we visit the hotel and we are delighted about the new hotel we see, this year the suprise was perfect
The hotel has been refurbished and it is a good 4 star hotel is recommended for couples who want to feel relaxing, calm good food clean rooms overlooking the endless blue!

Room Tip: ask for rooms looking the island of spinalonga

recommended to all that wish to spend comfortable holidays in a unique place.Elounda is a beutifull summer area and spinalonga is the small fortress island that you have to visit for sure. it is visible from the hotel. Accommodation is very pleasant in Selena and the staff is very helpful and polite.

Nice and very clean room. Traditional style although kind of minimal. No unnecessary stuff. Quite and piece, very friendly and decreet personnel taking very good care of everything. The location is perfect. Offers fabulous Spinalonga Island view. The beach in a front of the hotel is nice and quiet. If you look for trendy and sandy one - its definitely not your choice - otherwise is perfect. Finally the Cretan buffet offered by the hotel (for only 14 Euro per person) is a real experience. Definitely worth each euro spent. highly recommended.

Room Tip: room 317 is just gorgous

This is a fairly basic hotel, but pleasant and homely, everything is fresh, clean and comfortable. I liked the calm, clear colours in the room, that with the gorgeous sea and mountain views means you can really put your mind at rest. Because the hotel is at the edge of Elounda village, it's peaceful and feels like being in the countryside.

At the same time the town with plenty of restaurants, bars and shops is close by. There's a lovely tree-lined seaside promenade into it, about 15-20mins walk, or there's a good local bus and taxi service.

(The hotel has just been renovated over the past few months and I believe under new management as of this year).

The hotel is fairly small so if you don't like all those massive resorts and to be surrounded by hordes of other tourists then this is for you! Staff are genuine, friendly and helpful. All the facilities are in good condition and service works fine. (Contrary to some of the other reviews here, my room was cleaned every day and fresh towels provided; air-conditioning also worked just fine, and that was in hot weather around +30C). The hotel serves a delicious home-cooked buffet dinner in the evening (at extra cost), with a variety of local foods.

The hotel has its own little beach, or there are two public beaches, with a bar, on either side.

I'm not a great budget traveller but would warmly recommend Selena hotel. Didn't feel I had a budget experience but the most relaxing holiday ever!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

I stayed a couple of nights during for short visit to Elounda area. Actually the hotel is more close to Plaka village, a small finding village opposite Spinalonga island. The hotel location is convenient, offering a breathless unobstructed view to Spinalonga island and the gulf of Elounda. You can go to the nearest beach (Ipanema) on foot, less that 3 mins.

However, the rooms are really old and need desperate refurnising. Windows and doors don't shut properly letting air in. Air conditioning is really poor and the unit is insufficient to properly cool down the room. The toilet is really old, with uncomfortable bath tub and the overall impression is a bit filthy.

I would suggest definitely this hotel to anyone with limited budget who wants to visit the area and cannot afford the numerous 5 star hotels.

We visited Selena hotel few days ago. It's located 1.5 km from Elounda village. A seaside promenade starting from the hotel to the village. Very nice for evening walking or morning jocking. Selena Hotel its a seafront hotel with a nice small private beach with clean waters and free of charge sun-beds. Our room was spacious, clean with a huge terrace. Fridge, TV and free wi-fi internet. The view from our terrace over looking Spinalonga fortress Island some small fishing boats, the sea and the beach, was like a live painting. We enjoyed the best sunrise of our life. Don't miss the dinner on Ntakos hotel restaurant. Traditional Cretan recipes combined with breath taking sea view. Warm hospitality, friendly staff, great service. We paid the best combination for sleep, food and car rental by far from all of our trips before.
