Coming back from eastern Crete, we wanted a hotel near the Phaistos Palace we wanted to visit before going back to Heraklion. We basically picked this one at random from Expedia, late in the afternoon. We arrived almost at sunset and did not see much before going to bed. In the morning we realized the hotel is superbly located right... More

They provided very good breakfasts, were attentive to every need and the value for money was the best I have found anywhere. The rooms are... More

We have spent 2 weeks in this beautiful, tranquil place. We enjoyed tasty breakfasts (included in price) and spacious garden with large swimming pool. We traveled a lot to nearby beaches in a rented car. I highly recommend Idi Hotel as it is high value and family-friendly place!

Beautiful and inviting hotel, excellent maintenance, delicious breakfast although not changing every day, room cleaned and organized every day, towels changed every two days (that's enough). The hotel staff are very nice, helping all the time and try to give a good solution to any problem. I would expect the hotel will get more stars. Great price for compensation
