I have traveled around the world, stayed in places ranging from shacks on top of wild tundra to palaces in the middle of lakes- and nothing has compared to the experience I had here. I was fortunate enough to spend two and a half weeks here- getting to know the family and the employees of this incredible establishment. Long story... More

This is a great place to stay for a totally authentic slice of Greek hospitality. Greeted on arrival with a thermos flask of coffee, biscuits and some fruit puree (?). Breakfast was mammouth, the pastries just kept coming. Service always with a smile. Bedroom was very pretty, shower was efficient and balcony had stuffing views towards mountains. The daybreak chorus... More

We were passing through Zaros and wanted to go for breakfast at Vegera since it was recommended to us. The lady who runned the restaurant told us that they didn't do breakfast but we could go to her sister's hotel because she makes a great breakfast. She sure wasn't lying. Wow! Definitely recommend!

My family and I stayed at the Hotel Keramos for three nights and fell in love with this place, and the people who run the bed and breakfast. Our stay was simply wonderful. After encountering a rude Hertz sales agent at the Heraklion Airport, our start of our brief stay in Crete was not the greatest. The trip to Zaros... More

Loved this place! The minute I arrived, Caterina offered coffe and cookies before checking into my room. I felt like I was visiting a family friend. The rooms are clean, comfortably and beautifully decorated with antiques and hand-made linens. I had a single room with a nice balcony with view of the city. But the bigger family rooms have balcony... More

This hotel is very charming with its old style. The beds are all collected, original old and robust beds, the tablecloths are all handknitted by Katharina, the thick stone walls keep the rooms cool - the athmosphere is just great. The breakfast is simply oberwhelming: Every morning Katharina bakes lots of different cookies and pies - more than anyone could... More

The village of Zaros was part of our second annual roadtrip in Crete of Spring. We were delighted to choose Hotel Keramos as from the very first moment it was a delightful experience. Mrs Katerina provided us a very warm welcome. We were given a private tour at the local church's museum by her husband , a very interesting one,... More

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at Keramos. The family and staff (Nicos, who spoke excellent English) were very welcoming, helpful, and generous. Breakfast was great, and a proper doggy bag was provided to fill with Katerina's homemade savoury and sweet pastries. Handy for lunch. Zaros is a lovely little town, and the nearby Rouvas Gorge is a wonderful... More

This is one of the loveliest places I've stayed. Three of us spent two nights here as part of a ten day holiday in Crete and were blown away by the warmth of the welcome and the splendid breakfast at this family-run hotel. We were given coffee and a sample of the home-baked goods that grace the hotel's breakfast tables... More
