The rooms were sad the bathrooms were dirty The food was just ok. The town has nothing to offer If your planning a treck up psiloritis dont do it from here Your much better off trecking from the other side. This amari valley route is unmarked and dangerous at times You are much better off following the E4 trail past the Zeus cave As far as the hotel Tab goes every meal had a few euros added to it and we were charged a fee for leaving early When we checked in we said 2 or MAYBE 3 nights The owner said he turned away bussiness based on our maybe One of our two nights we stayed up on the mountain so really we were there only one night and paid for 2 and a 1/2 nights The owner was nice but this place is a bit of a trap for travelers Its a long way to travel to get there and in my opinion the only good thing was the view

Room tip: There are no"nice" rooms here they look like they furnished the place at the flea market

Was wonderfully peaceful sitting on the terrace looking down at the Amari Valley and seeing Psiloritis and Kedros.

Loved Lambros' broken English signs, and his never missing a point (Taverna, Rooms, Walks, Hikes up Psiloritis, etc).

Would like to come back with a group.

Room tip: We were only there for an hour or so, but may well come back. Lambros is quite a character! He has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the area. I translated his (mainly-only-Greek) website into English: I may post it somewhere when I get home.

We stayed here for two nights and it was one of our favourite times to get a real feel of life in Crete. The food was delicious and either freshly picked from the garden or bought off other local villagers.
We went on a gorgeous walk kindly offered by the owner free of charge to show us the village, we went herb collecting and he let us pick lots of his organically grown fruit to take with us on our journey.
We were provided with a map to do a 3 hour walk through the beautiful amari valley and the owners dog decided to join us and became our best buddy for the day.
We couldn't have been more welcomed, mr lambros was a lovely genuine

We visited Thronos in late September 2011. Aravanes Rooms are in the middle of a crumbling village. The accommodation was terrible, I am sorry to say. Our bed was cheap and very hard, the carpet was full of stains but the views are spectacular and Lambros is a very nice man. All this for 104 euros!!! including a micro-waved meal. Not the best bargain on Crete.

Room tip: Sorry but I don,t think there will be one.

The rooms are basic and overpriced. The taverna produced a tasty meal from local produce but again was overpriced. We had asked the price before hand but were not given one; we felt we had been taken for a ride.
The taverna has an unbelievable setting at the head of the Amari Valley and could provide an excellent base for local touring, but we would not choose to return.
A disappointing experience from a place that promised so much
