“Exceptional warm Cretan welcome and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Argyro who runs the place is the epitome of the Cretan friendliness. The warmth of her welcome, the unceasing attention she keeps paying to her guests, from dawn to very late at night make you feel at home in her spotless little hotel. She is definitely the best Cretan cook we have met.She can cook a different Cretan meal for you every day, even if you stay one month. And she cooks with her olive oil, with the vegetables grown in their garden by Manolis, her friendly husband, and she serves you their own wine. The place where you want to become Cretan. Thank you, Argyro.

After returning from magical Kritsa I felt compelled to write a review. I was greeted with a warm hug by Argyro herself and I am so pleased I chose to stay at her hotel. She is an exceptional hostess who maintains spotless rooms and treats her guests like members of her family. She cooks authentic Cretan meals, answered my questions about buses and local attractions. Nothing was too much trouble. The experience of such a beautiful place was surpassed only by the warmth of Argyro and her family who made sure I had all the comforts I needed. I cannot wait to return and see my new friends again.

We wanted to stay for a night ... and stayed for the rest of our holidays! Argyro and her husband gave us a very warm welcome on our arrival, and we built a nice personal relationship during our stay. Argyro and her husband make this place very special with their authentic warm and open friendliness, always helpful and caring. We were hosted like friends and learned a lot about Cretan life and the surrounding area of Kritsa. Particularly worth mentioning is Argyro's extra-delicious Cretan cuisine, she really pampered us with typical Cretan dishes mainly prepared with her own products and served on her nice terrace under a lemon tree. Our room had a balcony to the street (quiet at night), bathroom with a shower (very good water pressure!), TV, air condition (which we did not use in April) and was super clean. Kritsa old village is really nice and definitely worth visiting! We can highly recommend Argyro's Rent Roomas as a central place to stay, you can easily make day trips to places in the North, East and South of Crete. Big thanks to Argyro and her family - they really made our holidays! We will definitely come again and are looking forward to our next visit.

We have stayed at Argyro twice this summer/autumn, as a base for getting to know the surrounding area, and already we feel as if Georgos and Argyro are old friends. From the moment you arrive -- "welcome, welcome!" -- to the minute you leave, with a promise to return, you feel as if you are part of a big family. The house is conveniently located with parking on site or just over the road; the rooms are light, airy and clean and there's a shared fridge on the landing outside to keep water, picnics, etc, fresh. I definitely recommend eating dinner there, too, as in my opinion Argyro cooks the best Moussaka in eastern Crete! It's a great place to stay if you want to explore the old town of Kritsa or perhaps for being more adventurous by driving up on to the Katharos Plain and onward, along the dusty mountain tracks (4x4 essential) to the Lasithi Plateau. Highly recommended for genuine Cretan hospitality.

This lovely hotel can be found on the left as you enter Kritsa from Agios Nicolaus. We were greeted by the motherly proprietess, who gave us our choice of rooms, either one looking out over the village, or one looking toward the olive groves that surround it. The room was clean and airy. A gadget to frighten off mosquitoes was provided. The bathroom was clean and therre was plenty of hot water. Each room appears to have a balcony with table and chairs,from which you can observe village life...
In the morning we were served a delicious breakfast of coffee, toast of fresh bread, yogurt with honey, and fresh scrambled eggs of their own production, and freshly squeezed orange juice: all for 5 Euros. Argyro serves lunch, and, i believe, dinner as well, though we didn't eat therre, my impression was that they serve traditional Cretian food, and produce much of the ingredients themselves.

We were visiting Kristsa ; at noon, we wanted to have a lunch. We had a recommandation for Argyro.
We explained to the landlady what we wished : an authentic cretan lunch.
She proposed a very simple menu : a unique plate with lamb and all sorts of beans.
It was really a feast : one of our best in two weeks spent in Creta and the most authentic off all.
The white wine that accompanied our lunch (a production ot the house) was also delightful.
Service was perfect and pricing quite moderate.
