Description of the hotel correct. Simple furnishment but excellent terrace and very good view from top floor. Breakfast quite simple. Cleaning very good. Allthough this hotel is a bit worn out the staff dores an excellent job keeping i clean and satishfying. We will be back later in the autumn.

I arranged with Minoli and Elaine to have the hotel for a week so my guests could all be together and enjoy a fun filled week. Everyone arrived on 10th May. That evening I arranged food to be delivered at the hotel for everyone... More

We spent a weeek at this hotel mid Sept 2003, the views were stunning because it is perched on top of a big hill halfway between Ag Nik and Elounda, buses stop directly outside the hotel, but a car hire is recommended because of it's isolation. If you enjoy going for a evening meal and a stroll, Ag Nik and... More

What fabulous views from this hotel. The hotel itself was about 10 minutes bus journey from Agios and 10 minutes to Elounda which was really good at night, you could go either way ( 1 euro each bus or 7 euros per taxi). There was no problem travelling as there is a bus stop right outside the hotel. The hotel... More
