Reviewed August 3, 2013

Stayed here for three nights. Great location to access Balos/Gramvousa cruise and Falassarna beach. Room was big, well appointed with kitchenette and very clean. Also had a nice view of the peninsular from the large balcony. Theodore made us feel very welcome. Thoroughly recommended!!

We checked in yesterday so this is the first impression, we have another 3 nights to go. Close to the ocean and tavernas and to town. Looks great when you arrive, nice pool & lobby but it ends there. Yes it's clean, but there were holes in the sheets, the aircon doesn't work and the beds are not comfortable. We have the 1br and the kids essentially sleep in the kitchen - and there's no aircon at all in there, only in the bedroom which as I said, doesn't work anyway. We had to sleep most of the night with the hall and veranda doors open just to get some air through so we didn't die of heat. Bathroom is tiny and there 's no bath. I would have expected a bit more for the money.

Kissamos is a good location to explore the beaches and mountains of western Crete. Great fresh produce available for self catering and nice row of tavernas by the beach front - slightly less of a full on "resort" than some other places. The Mirtilos Studio apartments provide easy access to it all - nice, airy and clean with enough of a kitchenette to enable eating in. The pool was the highlight -kept lovely and clean, with pool bar for that essential late afternoon Mythos.

We spent three days in june 2013 on the beautiful island of Crete, in a small village called Kissamos to Mirtilos Hotel.
Kissamos is very well connected by public transport despite the fact that it's a little far from Chania. It's about a 40km distance
This did not bother us at all because there are a lot of places to visit in the vicinity and if you choose to relax @ the wonderful hotel pool, the staff is so friendly that you"ll sit there all day long.
We travel a lot but I met no place like here, they changed the bed sheets every day, thing that impressed me considering the low price that weve paid. I could compare without any exaggeration with a 4-star hotel
They are so nice that they booked us tickets for a small cruise on Gramvousa Island & Balos.
I strong recommend this hotel given that a successful holiday where you stay counts 70 percent.
Thank you very much because you made our vacation more enjoyable

We were driving around western Crete and found ourselves in Kissamos for the night. The Mirtilos Studio Apartments appear brand new with nice grounds and a beautiful looking swimming pool (we didn't use it as it was a bit cool).
The apartments are about 100 metres from the centre of town, so very convenient. There's heaps of free parking nearby too.
The rooms are huge and offer lots of space. The bathrooms are modern and new.
The staff are friendly and helpful (when you can find them). The only negative for us was the beds and linen. The beds were very firm (hard) and the sheets seemed a bit thin - however, we still slept well.
It was also excellent value, half the cost of a hotel in Heraklion.

We spent almost 2 weeks in Mirtilos. The location is perfect, 2 minutes walk from Kissamos centre and 5 minutes from the seaside. The room was big enough and equiped with a small kitchen, the bathroom was clean and brand new, the water pressure was surprisingly strong, much better than what I encounterred in Mediterranean. The room was cleaned almost every day and the linen changed every second day, so it was always a good fresh feeling when we got home. The pool was fantastic and the sunbeds and umbrellas were quality items. The owner (I think his name is Manolis, the mustacho man) is keen to improve the services and make the guests happy, so just ask hom, if you have any problems. Mirtilos is the perfect choice if you want to stay in Kissamos.

The small family hotel is situated 5 minutes away from a beautiful but not fancy seaside. The beach is not top of the top, but you can enjoy your sun and sea baths without many people interfering. The whole Kissamos is evolving so as time passes by, you will see more and more villas and small family hotels emerging. Among them, Mirtilos is definetely the best choyce you can make. The staff is super friendly and ready to improve your stay. The location is superbe. An oasis in midst of a relative underdeveloped countryside. Rooms are shady and the (pretty loud) air conditioning is working as expected. I mean, you will hear your neighbours air conditioning unit working, if you will keep your window open. The superclean pool and the small green spots help the atmosphere to stay cosy. I have been there in the hottest period of the year and still, the seabreeze and the air conditioning managed to keep the atmosphere breathable. And now, the downside. Please check the calendar: if there is an orthodox holiday scheduled there, prepare to close your windows and balcony doors. The fake bells will ring and wake you from the dead (maybe they're meant to, I don't really know...) starting 7 AM every hour! I am a late sleeper, so I enjoyed my first few days until the loudspeakers from the nearby located church woke me up again and again and ruined my days.
Generally speeking this is a dream location and excepting this minor inconvenient, you can spend there a wonderful time. Woud return anytime... with earplugs!

Room Tip: Get an appartment at the first floor, facing the garden and the pool.
