Lovely hotel in a great location. Bernadette who runs the hotel could not do enough for you even lending us a laptop to keep in touch with family after a chance conversation. She is also multi-lingual. (English/Greek/French/German at least).
The hotel sits on a small promentary between the harbour and the best beach in town. This means 30-40 steps or a steep hill but well worth the effort. Not the easiest place to find due to the street layout. Rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. Very simply decorated with no "glitz" or pretentious theme. Rooms above second floor have the better views which are spectacular.
Very central location gives easy access to all that the resort has to offer. Trip to Spinalonga is very interesting and good fun. Take plenty water.
Overall, a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms above second floor have better views.

I stayed at this hotel with a friend in 2009, loved the city, the place and the people and had to go back in 2010 and stay at the same hotel again on my own, both times for just over a week. It is right in the centre and 2 mins walk from the city beach. They have lovely studio apartments with kitchenette and balcony, all with a sea view. It's great value for money for a medium to long stay given the facilities. The owners are lovely and helpful with everything, they alway gave me a lift to the bus station at the end of my stay - I almost consider them friends. I hope to be able to go back and visit again in the near future.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front are larger and facing the sea, best view and brighter, but tend to get hotter in the summer.

This hotel has a superb view from its top floor rooms. The sea was a translucent turquoise; the great mountains of Crete rose up out of the water, circling the bay. The balcony was huge. This in itself would get my top vote, but the room was also very comfortable and attractive - a studio really with a large well-equipped kitchen and a good bathroom including a bath as well as a powerful shower - baths relatively unusual in Crete. There was an iron, an ironing board that folded away into the wardrobe drawer in a really neat way (not something I'd normally get excited about but it was quite novel) and comfortable beds -the Crete mattresses tend to be very firm, which I like + plenty of extra pillows and blankets and a TV that worked well.

Very friendly, very central and excellent value.

PS: Don't be put off going to this pretty and charming town by very old and dated reports about lager louts or package tourism - that is 10 to 15 years out of date. Books and guides still referring to Ag Nik and lager louts should be ashamed for not researching the 'here and now'.
Early in the season this is a quiet town geared to its local population rather than tourists; even in season it has moved away from package tourism. There are a few ex pats and English bars -and lots of Rooms- but all low key. There are lots of good restaurants, bars and shops - slightly pricier than inland or up in the mountains but Agios Nikolaos makes a good base for travelling round the eastern part of the island and seeing the really remote places.

Good value, nice and serviceminded owners, spacious and clean apartment. The view was fantastic and we will reccomend this hotel . If you have problems walking it might not suit you because it's situated on top of a hill.

We stayed in the Creta Hotel for 5 nights and found the owners very friendly and helpful.
the hotel was very clean and comfortable. The view from our bedroom was spectacular.
Bernadette and Michalis gave us good ideas on where to travel in our car, so we saw all the interesting towns and villages in that area.
One evening there was a lovely musical event in the town Hall. It was a visiting choral Group and orchestra from Heraklion.
