Argyro Apartments
Reviewed February 18, 2012

After a long coach trip from the airport, finally arrived here at 5am, shattered. Managed to sleep for a few hours, then had a look around the studio. i was pleasantly surprised to find that I had 2 balconies! The place was well equipped & clean. It`s location, up a narrow lane off the main road meant that it was peaceful too. It`s good that they had a `book swap`, as i tend to read a lot on holiday.
Wandered up onto the roof of the building & found half a dozen sunbeds. Result! on Hungover days I didn`t even have to leave the building.
Elounda`s a great little vilage, with lots of character. There was a great selection of restaurants to choose from. A few of them actually had seating on platforms in the water. The floating restaurant was pretty good too.
I did the Spinalonga trip & was really impressed. (had to read Victoria Hislop`s book afterwards!) i also hired a Bicycle for the duration of my stay & spent my time exploring the surrounding countryside as well as riding over to Ag Nik a couple of times.
Ended up most nights in The Malibu bar, near to the digs, therefore I only had to stagger a short distance home in the we small hours. Had to pay a silly amount of euros to store my bag for the day before leaving for the airport. That would be my only gripe.

Stayed here for 2 weeks, bit hard to find but worth it when you get there.
Very nice studios staff go out of their way to be helpful.
10 mins walk fron the center of Elunda but there is a closer beach .
Best value you can get.

We are just back from our break in Elounda and have to promote the ARGYRO apts.
Rooms are great with a very private balcony - not a view as we know it but so peaceful.
Georgi and Dimitra are so welcoming and friendly . The port and beach are 10 mins from the apts. a trip to Spinalonga is only 10e return you can spend all day there ( read the book " THE ISLAND") lots of shops ; fresh bread and meat.
Lots of great walks but you need walking shoes. We walked to Plaka but Elounda beats it by far. e/mail argyroapts@yahoo.gr and they will get back to you .

Room Tip: we were in room 2 but any room is good only the size differs. sorry no photo's run out of film.

What a great place to stay! After a hot ride from the airport, we were greeted with a lovely glass of cold water. We were shown to our room and in the fridge, there was another bottle of water. The room was tidy and was cleaned quite a few times during our stay. We have stayed in quite a few places in Greece and this was as good as any.

Argyro appartments offer fairly small but clean rooms equiped with 2 ring stove, fridge, electric kettle, toaster, TV, hair dryer, balcony, and electric iron available on request.
The appartments are not easy to find being in a side road just off the main road which leads down to the harbour. We went to the harbour and asked at a cafe and one of the customers who knew the Argyro owners phoned them and they drove down and escorted us back. (can only happen in Crete). The Harbour is about a ten minute walk from the appartment. The owners who live on the premisis are very friendly and the rooms are serviced every day. There is plenty of hot water at any time of the day. There are no bar or restaurant facilities at the Argyro but there are plenty plus shops close by.
If you are looking for a clean basic accomodation at a very reasonable price the Argyro would be hard to beat.

We have only just returned from Elounda where we booked one of the One Bedroom Apartments at the Argyro. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and comprised of a small bedroom with two single beds a living room with a bed settee and included a table with toaster and kettle. There was a large wardrobe completely sufficient for our needs. Included was a kitchen area with bathroom and shower. I would suggest that if you want really hot water you shower in the evening as the water is solar heated can be cool by the morning.

It is difficult for the proprietors to explain it's position but suffice it to say that it is nowhere near some of the information on some of the holiday web sites. If you are arriving by car from Ag Nik then as you get to the bottom of the hill into the outskirts of Elounda on the right you will see a sign pointing to Elounda Bay Palace and shortly you will see on your left a sign for Budget Car Hire, turn next left in approximately 50 metres and left again. The road then turns right and the apartment block is on the corner with a small sign outside, there is capacity for parking down the drive. If you telephone them when you are getting close George is happy to come out onto the main road and direct you at any time.

Whilst there is no swimming pool both rooms open on to a balcony where you can sit and have your food.

I decided to write a review about the argyro apts because there wasn't any and I thought it was such a pity because the argyro apts are wonderful. We booked privately, the prices were cheap and certainly worth the value. As for the cleanliness, I rate it with A. Really pleasantly surprised about the clean rooms and sheets during our stay. The owners very friendly ,always helpful to any of our questions and requests. Also they offer a bottle of olive from their own production to every client at their departure . We really appreciated it. The surroundings are peaceful, there is a garden around the apts. And it is just a 5 minute walk to the center of Elounda.
