“A Gem right in the Center!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

Our stay at the Du Lac was fantastic! The service was very professional, always with a feeling of a home away from home. The staff there went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed at all times and that our trip was going well- DAILY! Rooms cleaned daily and what a great price!! August is normally untouchable in Greece but they found a way to squeeze us in at the last minute! Thank you Anna, Anna-Sophia, Yiorgo & staff
A trip to remember- this crew is tapped in to the heartbeat of Kriti ...

We didn't use booking.com to book this hotel we just took a bus to Agios Nikolaos and wandered around until we found a hotel we liked. This hotel is situated right on the lake and as soon as we had wandered into the lobby we were taken by the lovely view. We decided to take a studio rather than just a room, which gave us a double balcony and a proper kitchen. Many an evening was spent with a gass of wine watching the ducks and geese and general goings on around the lake. Even though it is situated in the town it is in a pedestrian street and is very quiet. It is close to the harbour, restaurants and beaches and has a small supermarket in the same street. We booked for 2 nights and stayed 5, in fact we almost returned later in our trip. It is clean, renovated and modern - all you could hope for. It is on our list to return to.

Room Tip: If it is in your budget, go for a studio.

This is a no frills hotel in a super position in AN, lying in the centre of the town with lovely views over the lake. This is not a luxury place to stay but is clean and reasonably well appoionted. There is no breakfast but there are plenty of places near by. The bathrooms are somewhat small but clean and well furnished. Take your own soap & shampoo if you do not like dispensers...there is a chemist across the road

Room Tip: Overlooking the Lake

Gorgeous dinner last night - fresh fish (we picked the one we wanted). Beautifully cooked with good bbqd veggies. Eggplant starter was great too.

Worth a visit, however a little pricey (our most expensive in Crete).

Beds poor, pillows awful, TV doesn't work, internet lousy lousy, no soap in bathroom, no shampoo given or anything else. Just a lousy place to stay in. People were nice but then most Greeks are nice. Strolling in the area is nice. That's all.

The location of this hotel right on the lake and along two pedestrian streets is unrivaled in Aghios Nikolaos. The side facing the lake has excellent views from the balconies, as do the bar and restaurant below. The building itself is your typical Greek 1960s and 1970s square hotel with nothing terribly exciting about it. But the furniture has recently been done over, and - here is the important part - so have the bathrooms. Try to get the corner double rooms facing the lake (101, 201, 301), which have very large bathrooms with a window providing views of the lake. For the price, €45 double and €30 single (mid-May), you cannot go wrong. No breakfast is provided, but there are several cafes with lake views just outside the hotel's door.
