We stayed here as a stop over for 2 nights as we flew in late in the night. It's a very short distance from the airport and is perfect for the first few nights or the last couple of nights before flying home.

There's a lovely restaurant, a great bar which has a nice atmosphere for a post dinner drink. Supermarket and lovely little bakery close by and a fairly good public bus service to Irakio, with one every half hour or so. The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and there's a nice pool area. The beach near by isn't the best and can get quite noisy with planes taking off but overall we had a good experience.

I have stayed in this hotel for 9 nights, and it was a pleasant stay.
I have booked this room though the hrs reservation system, and got a bargain price of 27 euro/night, including breakfast. The hotel is a few hunderd meters away from a long sandy beach, which has several places where you can rent a sunbed and have a drink. This stretch of sand is busy in the weekend (with greek people), but quiet during the working days. A nice place to relax however. For more tourist buzzing one needs to go to Heraklion (15 minutes by bus) or for example Chersonissos (30 minutes by bus), or locally rent a car, and drive to Rethymon. The room I got was clean and equipped with all neccesary furniture, however only two lightbulbs (out of 6) were working. This was fixed after a few days (my arrival was on friday evening). My room was located very close to the reception area, so it was somewhat noisy during the evening, but not annoying.
The hotel has a restaurant which serves good food, but with respect to the price not outstanding. The breakfast is nice with the usual ingredients, and good quality of bread and a cooked egg also. No shortage of anything in case you are a little late !
At checkout I had to pay an additional € 2/night for the airconditioning, which was a positive suprise, as the standard price is an additional €4/night.
Also positive to mention is the smooth and nice staff, who will quickly respond to your needs, and with a very nice attitude.

This hotel is very unique – The hotel owned by a Greek couple, Manos end Elefteria, together with a grate staff, led by Yanis and they are so nice and warm and all of them (including the owners!!!) are doing their best all the time in order for the guests to feel comfortable, relax and enjoy the vacation the best way there is.
Despite the fact that the hotel is like 12 minutes from the airport, there is no noise and sleeping is great (and its not so bad that the airport is not far...).
Yes, the rooms are very basic and you have to pay extra 4 euro for having air-condition in the room but still, they are cleaned every day, towels are changed every day, and let’s be honest – for what we are paying – you’re getting your money value back and much much more!!!
I took half board and enjoyed every evening a meal at the Tavern’s garden , that is part of the hotel, tavern that offers a great Greek cuisine, I think that the amount I paid for half board, didn’t cover the food I had every evening…
In the same area, they have a bar that works throughout the day till the last guest and costumer leaves and now and then, one of them suddenly prepare cocktails shots and offer it for free for everybody around, and everybody is shouting “YAMAS” (cheers in Greek) together and drinking and having fun, listening to music and dancing. You can meet new friends or have a nice quit evening at one of the wonderful corners of the yard/tavern or bar
On weekends, a Greek singer and Bouzouki player is performing during dinner at the tavern – again, no charge…
There is a very nice and clean sandy beach 10 minutes walk from the hotel and a bus is passing by every half hour, going to Heraklio or to some other beaches at the area.
At the hotel, you can find a pool and a pool bar...
I must say, I didn’t knew nothing or no one from this hotel, I found out about it thru the net and this was my first time at this hotel. Surely it is not the last one and I recommend it from the bottom of my Heart !!!
I came as a guest and left as a friend - what more can you ask for????

was close to arriving to the airport without it

The hotel is not so bad...if you are lucky to have a room inside the hotel!
I booked a room 4 months before the stay…and they gave me an awful room (I should better call it a bungalow than a room hotel) outside the real hotel.
This sort of bungalow was not finished yet (some lights were missing, there were not television and telephone, the bathroom’s taps were very old, the toilet seat was broken). It was in the middle of a very dirty street (the windows and the front door opened on a little street not enlighten and far from everything), far from the real hotel and outside it, so it was necessary to close all windows and doors to avoid that extraneous people passing in the street have the possibility to enter in the room.
Near the room (at few meters from the front door) there was an abandoned motel (the name should be Xania Motel): it was a crumbling building abandoned years ago and used as shelter by homeless (so you can imagine how you can feel sure in spending the night in this kind of room, in the middle of an isolated street, near homeless, without telephone and far away from everyone and having a French window as front door!).
Moreover there were also a lot of mosquitos and cats, ready to jump in the room if you left the windows open.
The owner, very ill-mannered, after let us wait for more than an hour to speak with her, told us that we could not have a room inside the hotel because it was full (even if a made a reservation 4 months before and I requested an hotel room and not an isolated rustic and unfinished bungalow in the middle of an isolated street!) and she completely ignored our complaints knowing that it was late (it was about 10 p.m. of the 10th of August, so it was not easy to find a different hotel) and we had no choice.
The room was so awful that we hesitated on spending the night there or sleeping in the car!
I advise against this hotel, because if you are unlucky and spend the night in this kind of room, you will have an awful stay.
In the end if you want to pay by credit card you have to choose the right moment, because if the boss is not present you are induced to pay with cash or to wait his coming back (and this is not a great thing if you have a flight or a boat leaving in an hour’s time).

Italiano:
La struttura dell'hotel non è brutta...se siete fortunati ad avere una camera all'interno dell'hotel!
Io ho prenotato 4 mesi prima del soggiorno...e mi è stata data una pessima camera (una sorta di bungalow) all'esterno dell'hotel. Una sorta di bungalow, non ancora completo (mancavano alcune luci, la tv, il telefono, bagno con rubinetti molto vecchi, water rotto), in mezzo ad una strada molto sporca (le finestre si aprono su una piccola stradina non illuminata e lontana da tutto, ad una certa distanza dall'hotel vero e proprio, quindi chiaramente è necessario chiudere porte e finestre se non vuoi che qualche estraneo entri). Vicino alla camera (a qualche metro dalla porta di ingresso) è presente un motel abbandonato da anni (Xania Motel se non ricordo male): si tratta di una struttura fatiscente dove trovano alloggio dei barboni (quindi si può intuire quanto ci si possa sentir sicuri in una camera del genere, a pochi passi da barboni, senza telefono, isolati da tutti e avendo come porta di ingresso una porta a vetri!).
Bisogna inoltre aggiungere che è pieno di zanzare e di gatti randagi pronti a entrarti in casa se lasci le finestre aperte.
La proprietaria, molto maleducatamente, dopo averci fatto attendere più di un'ora per poter parlare con lei, ci ha detto che non era possibile avere camere all'interno dell'hotel (anche se io avevo fatto una prenotazione 4 mesi prima e avevo richiesto una camera di hotel e non un bungalow in una strada deserta e isolata dal mondo) e ha completamente ignorato le mie richieste, sapendo che era ormai tardi (le 10 di sera circa) e non avevamo molta altra scelta.
La camera era talmente brutta ed inquietante che eravamo indecisi addirittura se dormire in macchina!
Sconsiglio questo hotel, perchè se avete la sfortuna di avere una camera all'esterno della struttura principale passerete un pessimo soggiorno.
