The hotel was very nice with modern touches. Located along a main street it is easy to walk to places for shopping and eating, also it is not far from the harbor. There is a market that that is open daily (although it closes around 3) that the hotel staff was more than happy to direct us to. They were very helpful, giving us a map and showing what roads to take and what sites to see. The archaeological museum is also within walking distance. For something different there is a site called Knossos, which is a short bus ride away (less than 2 euro). The front desk staff also helped us to get to the bus stop which was near-by.
The breakfast was what really impressed me about the hotel, it was a nice buffet spread with many options to suit anyone. There were different breads, granola, yogurt, cheeses, olives, and teas along with a few other things. Overall, it was worth it to make it to breakfast every morning.
