As usual I based my hotel stay on the reviews I read on tripadvisor but this time the reviews really mislead me. As a first time traveler to Greece I didn't know where to stay and I thought the city center was the right place to be, ah I was wrong. If you're in Crete you have to stay at the beach. City center is only for people who want a business trip or a really boring vacation. I stayed in this hotel for one night. There isn't much wrong with the hotel it's a okay hotel. Very average you won't be getting luxury or something out of this world. You will get a normal bed which is quite hard to sleep on, a very ordinary breakfast and after you've seen the city center you won't know what to do with your time. But I don't think its the hotels fault, its just that if you vacation to crete you need to stay at a resort close to a beach. This hotel is great for people who are in crete for bussiness but not for leisure. Thats what my taxi driver told me and thats the best advise I got.
