We have stayed here on numerous occasions and elena always makes our holiday a fantastic one . The studios are basic but clean and close to the beach and nightlife. I would recommend these studios. You are near everything but also you can have a quiet time as well. See you next year elena!!!

Knossos studios is a great place to stay. Elena the owner is the best host you could wish for, She does everything to make your stay perfect. Knossos is near to all amenities, and fabulous beaches. I would recommend this hotel to anybody. There are ceiling fans in every room and hairdryers. A perfect holiday would be had by all.

Pool area quiet during the day, like having your own pool on your back door step, Rooms tidied up every day apart from Sunday, clean towels every 2 days with sheets something similar,... More
