“Great place to stay for Lindos and beyond.”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

The apartments are great. They are basic but that is what you expect in Lindos.
Housekeeping keep them very clean, the maids do start a little early so if you want a lay in use your ‘do not disturb’ sign and they’ll come back later.

Our room had a TV (quite poor reception, but I don’t go on holiday to watch TV!), a two ring hob with saucepan/frying pan, toaster, kettle, fridge with ice box and the usual cups plates etc.

The pool is a good size for the 14 apartments, but remember you can use other pools and people can come any use Kranas’, but there were plenty of sun beds at all time, no need to reserve them.

The food from the poolside Kitchen was very good, cheaper than the IceBar and on a par with other lunchtime eateries in the village. (Chicken souvlaki 7 euro, club sandwich 7.5). I thought the drinks were a little dear, but that seems to be common elsewhere too

Krana apartments are in a great location, located up some steps at the top of the hill that leads you down into the village. There is also a sloped driveway (where the coach should drop you) so you don't have to carry your bags up the steps.

At the base of the step are the Krana supermarkets (3 on them) and a choice of 2 places to eat the Lindos Ice Bar and another daytime cafe.

The main Lindos bus stop is also located there, for your coaches to Pefkos, Rhodes etc. This is also where you can get the shuttle bus down to or more importantly back from(!) Lindos itself.
We had a great stay at the apartments and would recommend them to anyone.

Room Tip: The front rooms have a great view but get really hot, too hot in summer.

Just returned from two weeks at the Krana, on arrival were given room 4 this being a top front facing apartment wow! Best room in the house!!!. Fantastic views across the pool, the bay and Acropolis. Marina and Fedra were the perfect hosts, our son was the only child there for the first week and was made most welcome by all the staff and particularly Marinas young son. Something many may not be aware of in Greece the pools seem to be open to everyone and with the Krana being a smaller location can occasionally be overrun by outsiders.
Lindos itself is perfect picture book Greek village with many fantastic restaurants/Tavernas.
All in all a perfect place for a relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Room numbers 3, 4, 5 and 6 are all pool/sea/Acropolis facing

We stayed at the Krana in May this year for the first time and really hope it won't be the last. Marina and family were great hosts, the apartments were spotlessly clean and the location was perfect for views of the village and acropolis. Lindos is a lovely little village with plenty of nice restaurants to choose from although food at the apartments is also delicious and reasonably priced. Looking forward to my next visit to Rhodes and hopefully the Krana apartments.

Just returned from a week at the Krana apartments. Booked it on a late booking but have been to Lindos many times so knew the location.
Location was amazing, fabulous views and great place to people watch whilst lying on your sunbeds of the tourists arriving on the day trip coaches
Apartment was very clean and spotless, basic, shower cubicle tiny, you struggled to turn round.
This was are only downside to the room.
Pool area fabulous free wifi round the pool and by the poolside bar. Food was good. The owners were very friendly and helpful.
Ideally located for walking down into the village, if your feeling lazy late at night a taxi was 4 euros
And we always ended up in the ice bar next door.

Have just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Krana apartments Lindos. Have nothing but praise , our apartment was spacious and spotless. There are only 14 apartments there so it is not a big complex which is exactly what my partner and I were looking for. It overlooks the acropolis and the views are lovely. The apartments are opposite the road which leads down to the beautiful village of Lindos but it is a steep walk back up but there is a bus which runs during the day if you prefer. The village has plenty of restaurants but our personal favourite was Bysantino the food was excellent and the staff were more than helpful.Pals bar is a vocal and central part of the village and Stelios and Pannos are entertaining characters and it is well worth a visit. Back up the top you have the Ice bar which is next to the Krana, it became our local while we were there as it is only a sort walk home. The staff at the Ice bar are wonderful we did have a few favourites and they will know who they are. We would like to thank Marina and Fedra who own and run the Krana for a lovely stay and Poppy the crazy maid who was very hard working and made our stay fun. Well worth a second visit and will be booking very soon .

Room Tip: Book early if you want a front facing apartment

We stayed at Krana hotel last week in August. Upon arrival we were greeted and taken to our room, which was so clean and tidy.We were self catering so it came equipped with pans, cups, kettle and toaster, cutlery, and a small fridge freezer ( life saver for cooling bottles of water as it was getting into the late 40's temp wise) Best pool ive seen in any hotel, ever. Pretty steep walk into the nearby town , but a gorgeous one at that. Management do a great job here, I would go back tomorow. Thank you krana hotel :)

These apartments are absolutely brilliant. We had a larger, family sized apartment (only one left when we booked) and it was spacious, well equipped and very clean.

The apartments are ideally located for wandering into town in the day/evening and it is a hike back out to the apartments but only because of the hill the town is on - staying in the town wouldn't be as nice though.

The pool area is lovely, the food is good, we would definitely return.

We did have a slight issue with the owner, but this was the travel operator's fault really. We arrived late at night and picked up our car at the airport. We asked the travel company for directions to the apartments which they gave us, and they told us when we get there the gate will be shut but just drive in and park wherever. We duly did this and it was a big mistake - the owner was very cross with us and would not check us in until we moved the car into the little square below the apartments (where the car stayed without issues all week). The next day we ate some humble pie and the owner then explained that she had only had the terracotta floor tiles replaced recently and so no parking was allowed. To be fair I don't think her english is brilliant, and she has troubles with her hips as well so I think the 'rudeness' others have complained of is just being a little tired and abrupt in fact. She runs a tight ship, keeps the apartments looking great, and for the rest of our holiday she could not have been nicer - giving us tips on where to eat and where to go and explore.

We loved this place - would definitely return.
