Hotel Restaurant Lefka Ori
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Sfakia
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Firstly, i wouldnt recommend staying in hora sfakion at all. The town is boring and there's nothing to do. We stayed there on the way to glyka nera, and we slept two nights in lefka ori. The family which owns the place was very nice and welcoming and the restaurant they own was good, but the room itself was the worst we stayed in in crete. My gut feeling is that all the rooms in hora sfakion are on the same level, so if you're driving by, try spending only one night there. Other than that, the water pressure in the shower was horrid, really, so i would encourage you to sleep in the other hotels (xenia looked nice from outside) and eat at lefka ori.

A family very welcoming. A really cretan's house with beautiful blue and white in the room. A nice facade front of the port. The cooking was excelent with local delicious products. All the family is pleasant. The room was clean and quite roomy.
Break-fast was luscious (honey, cheese, and sweet fresh orange juice).
A nice and quiet place.

We spent two nights at the hotel. The first night we stayed in a small clean room that had a balcony without a sea view. The second night we asked for a room with a sea view and were given a lovely apartment overlooking the sea! The staff were very helpful and friendly and we enjoyed the food served at the Taverna.

Room Tip: Ask for the studio with the sea view.

We stayed for a week in Lefka Ori and everything was great! A family establishment that paid particular attention to every guest! A really nice hotel and a great tavern, where we tasted all kinds of Cretan specialties. The family also owns a small cafe, which is next to the tavern, so we had everything that we wanted. Rooms are nice and spacious, very clean, ours had a balcony and a great view! George, Giannis, Manolis and Maria, the three sons and daughter that run the place are all truly great, friendly, helpful and with all kinds of excellent tips of what to see and what to do in this amazing place, Sfakia! Everywhere you go you will find amazing beaches and very very friendly people! Can not wait to go back!

We stayed here for 2 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The hosts are very welcoming and have great suggestions of things to do. Great hub to explore all the beaches in the area, do some hiking and relax. English is perfect and hospitality is phenomenal and everybody is friendly.

Lefka Ori offers very pleasant and comfortable rooms that are most reasonably priced. It is run by a family that includes three sons who are the waiters at the taverna. The sons are fluent in English and speak German, also; they are very gracious and personable. I have stayed in a spacious room with a kitchen, but usually had only breakfast there because the food is so good at the Lefka Ori and at other tavernas on the small harbor. Chora Sfakion is a favorite base for hikers because a ferry boat goes daily to the Gorge of Samaria and you have a choice of walking other gorges from this location as well. If you want to shop on a quaint island where no cars are allowed, take the ferry for a short trip to Loutro, which some call "magical." There is a nice selection of rooms and tavernas on Chora Sfakion, but the Hotel Restaurant Lefka Ori is one of my favorite.
