We had a wonderful holiday in Little Inn. I had been to the hotel before, but my boyfriend hadn't. The hotel is now renovated and looks great. Kokkinos Pirgos, where the hotel is located, is really small, so you need a car. But the quiet area was for us a real comfort. You can go to the beach and eat something by only taking a few steps. The rooms are clean and comfortable.

If you want a relaxed holiday and you like being in a quiet environment then I can really recomment this hotel!

First of All the staff was very nice but unfortunately this hotel needs some improvement. First of all the situation of the hotel is disappointing. These are the ugliest beaches from Crete and the town itself is not very exciting neither. The villages Matala and Agia Galini 15 minutes drive are very nice. The part of the hotel where we stayed looked renovated. It looked very nice. However the door had difficulties closing from the inside. This is a so called environment friendly hotel. Therefore bedsheets and towels are not cleaned everyday. Every day the cleaning ladies put the sheets in a kind of butterfly. Result is that you need to make up your bed everyday. Furthermore I saw some strange things happening at the pool. The dogs from the hotel drinking water from the pool. And after the cleaning ladies cleaned the floor with water and soap they drag the water into the pool. For those who like salty breakfast there is not a lot of choice boiled eggs everyday and once a week sausages. Our room had a nice flat screen however it could only capture Greek and German channels.

We really enjoyed staying at Little Inn with our three children this August. The Hotel is really lovely and the service excellent. Tina and Nikos are both really friendly and helpful, as are all the staff employed there. The rooms are lovely and spotlessly clean. We took their package deal which included a car and found that Kokkinos Pirgos is well positioned for touring southern Crete. Would recommend visiting Matala which has some lovely restaurants. Kokkinos Pirgos is a small village but the local taverna opposite serves delicious food, with a beautiful view and great service. We would recommend for a laid back holiday. Thank you to the owners!

We stayed at Little Inn for a total of 6 nights and really enjoyed our time there. The location was really ideal for us as it is away from the tourist haunts but close to the main Minoan sites (Phaistos, Agia Triada...) and other beautiful natural landscapes on the seaside that Crete has to offer. Kokkinos Pirgos is also positioned in the middle of Crete which makes it easy to travel on both east or west sides of the island for the day. Nearby towns of Timbaki and Mires have both big supermarkets, nice pastry shops and a very animated market on Saturday that enable you to mingle with locals, far away from all usual tourist traps. Needless to say that a car is essential to reach the hotel (count 1hour and 15 minutes from Heraklion), but it is well worth the trip!
Our double room had all modern comfort (big shower cubicle, wifi, fridge, balcony...) we could expect with a firm and new mattress (a must for people with back problems!). Provided that there was no wedding at the hotel, the environment was extremely quiet and relaxing. The breakfast buffet was impressive and boosted a large choice of food delicacies (pastries, fresh bread, eggs, cereal, cheese, sausages, yogurt, fruits....). Everything was spotlessly clean.
The owners were really helpful to advise us on all aspects of our trip: from restaurants to places to visit and directions. It is also important to note that due to the size of Kokkinos Pirgos and its peaceful life, we were not affected at all by demonstrations or strikes. Actually the strike gave us the opportunity to discover paradise landscapes through a walk that was recommended by the owners when the museums were closed (see picture). We did not regret it!

We chose this accommodation because Trip Advisor had recommended it so highly and we now wonder why.
When we reserved, we had to give our Credit cards details as guarantee. We were told that we would be debited 660 Euros. In reality, they debited my credit card TWICE for the same amount!! When I called them, they pretented first that didn't make any mistakes... that if a mistake had happen, their Greek bank was responsible. Of course, this was not the reality! As I told them that I'm a banker and that I would ask my Bank to examine the possibility to exclude them from the Visa organization, they suddently admitted having make a mistake. The next day, I was credited again the 660 Euros...
When we arrived at the hotel (a few weeks later), we didn't experience any good and friendly service at all. The room we had (senior suite) was large enough and quite clean. Nevertheless, many basic equipments were missing in our room... The breakfast served was of not good quality (no fresh bread, no eggs, etc...)
Conclusion: we would not recommend this hotel because of his bad situation in the village and the fact that the owners are not friendly at all. In addition, they try to cheat us in debiting twice our credit card!
