Nice enough hotel and good value for money. The hosts were friendly and the pool area was nice. Short walk to the beaches, restaurants and bars which were fantastic. Good walk or short taxi, car or bus ride into the centre of Heraklion

Une chambre soit disant ranger on y trouve cela...
"Not the 4th floor we had. as it was facing the road and the traffic was noisy most of the night."
"We reccommend higher floors because of traffic noise."
"This hotel doesn t worth its cost.we stayed for 7nights and the floor was never mopped and my 5 yearold daughter was running barefoot.the owners are terrible old and stingy and grumpy.i once took two mini donuts from the breakfast for my daughter who ate nothing there and they shouted at us as if we were thieves.they also did this to other mothers and it was terrible.the rooms are very basic,old furniture,broken sink and old bath.also we were irritated by the fact that every day delayed flights were hosted at the hotels sofas and pools sundeds.it was very annoying,there was not space for us and other people who payed this hotel."
"Overlooking the pool would be best"
"The higher floors ,have better view."
