“Warm family-run hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

I took last minute trip to Crete, and was surprised how good hotel Evropi was what comes to the price. Beautiful and quite new hotel with large rooms with lots of equipment. I also appreciated the large balcony from where you could gaze sunsets drinking a couple of Mythos beer ordered from bar (cheap prices!) directly to room or obtained from the supermarket just 10m from Evropi.

Nice atmosphere overall, staff was nice and had good sense of humor. It's up to you if it's a good thing but the hotel is mainly for Finnish travel agency customers. All menus, caution signs, information etc. was given in Finnish. As a Finn, it was weird but funny to talk to people for example at the pool in your mother tongue. Great and sunny pool, you did not need to walk to the beach which was about 500m far from Evropi.

All in all, almost perfect hotel, a bit too basic to my mind but I really did not need anything more. I warmly suggest this hotel to anyone who gets a good deal.

Room Tip: The best room is the one above reception.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We were one week in this hotel late in June and enjoyed every bit of it. The room (single room) was spacious and cleaned daily. Kitchen equipment was enough for us to create some breakfast and maybe even lunch. We were a bit suspicious about not having airconditioning in the hotel but now I must say ceiling fan was more than enough and for example at nighttime we did not use it at all or only on low-position. Our room was on the 1st floor so don't know if it's hotter upstairs. Don't expect great views from the balcony as the hotel is in "countryside".

Pool area is quite small but very clean and has sun all day long. Pool bar was great with decent prices and tasty food. In short we can recommend this to anyone who likes a little clean hotel with very nice staff and not too far from the beach and restaurats / shops (few min walk).

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We had a quick start holiday, actually we did not have time to search any information about this hotel. But everything about this place was only positive surprise!! Room was very nice and clean, which I appreciate very much. And because of that, I think, there was no bugs or cockroach or any other small disgusting things!! Only small minus, there was no air conditioning, but that was ok, there was a fan in the sealing. Usually we do not eat at hotel, but this time we did! Hotel staff, cook themselves sooooo good food, that we just enjoyed it by the pool few times! And how friendly and fun people they were! This place I can honestly recommend people who needs to have a peaceful and nice holiday! One more thing: the oldest, owner of this place, Mr. Vasilis Katsoulis, was looking just like daddy from movie called "My big fat greek wedding"!!! I was totally crush on him!!! :D Also the pool area, even it is small, but is is very nice and clean.
