If you're looking for a small, tidy, clean hotel, close to the old port and to all the restaurants/cafe, this is the right choice for you! The rooms are nice and comfortable, with air conditioning, wi-fi, fridge, hair dryer etc. My room had a balcony too. The hotel offers you a common kitchen with everything you may need to prepare...

This is a wonderful little place out of the way but also close enough to town to walk everywhere. It is clean and beds are very comfy. I highly recommend this little slice of heaven. The woman at the reception was so helpful and kind. Always with a smile.

Just far enough out of the hubbub, but very close to restaurants and the Venetinan Port walk and many historical sights, we found this hotel, homey and comfortable.

We stayed in a bedroom for three and it was really nice and spacious! The location is great and quite local compared to the old Venetian area nearby, which we found a little too touristy. The owners daughter spoke fluent English and recommended us to lots of great restaurants and also helped us to book really good tours to Samaria... More
