We spent a one week holiday in July in this lovely small hotel. All the comments written early are so true. The owners, Stella and Stelios, take good care of their guests and run the place with good and warm touch. We stayed in House of Flowers –suite and it was clean, well furnitured and beautiful. It had space enough to accommodate 3 ppl. The view from the balcony was panoramic facing the town of Iraklion and the see from the mountain. Stella served light lunch as per request and offered dinner on Tuesdays when the local restaurant in the village was closed. The local restaurant offered also good and fresh food with a fantastic panorama.
This is a hotel where I could go back on the next trip to Crete. I warmly recommend this to everybody who wants to enjoy peaceful and relaxing holiday.
Hints and tips:
- We struggled to find the hotel with GPS, so pls follow Stelios’s instruction instead. Also consider to rent a midsize car: we had a small car and it was not comfortable on the mountain hills.
- There is a small restaurant on the road to Iraklion right after the University Hospital called Taverna Katarina (written in Cyrillic alphabetic) next to a pharmacia. I serves good food for lunch and was the favorite of my very picky daughter. I warmly recommend to stop by in there.
