The staff were always pleasant and tried to help your stay as nice as possible.The food of course was a selection of Greek food every day which suited me fine but did not suit my wife one bit. The hotel... More

Everyday they clean the rooms, good food with a beautiful garden where you can take your breakfast and dinner, excellent location 10 m from the sea, and 500 m from the Supermarket. The hotel it's situated in the middle of Hersonissos. You have all you want there, friendly... More

We stayed here for 7 nights. The room is quite basic but spacious, the bathroom is a little bit small. We had the sea view room which costs a little bit more but it was worth the money, the view is spectacular and we couldn't get enough of it. Also the balcony is very spacious. The breakfast is full and... More

The best location in Hersonicos, in front of the beach and main road, close to the bars but also quiet, clean and big rooms, friendly staff, breakfast location is great, in a yard under the trees. Will visit again soon!

We are talking about a three stars hotel. Which deserves all the three stars. The building dates from the early 80’s. Excellent central position. The rooms are quite simple, no frills. I suppose that in time they will be renovated, perhaps with general economic conditions permitting. To-day they are adequate, specially considering the price of the hotel . A small... More
