A clean, modern B&B place, a bit difficult to find (a side street off the western part of Plakias' main street), without private parking (no elevator either).
Our room was rather on the smallish side, the shower stall was primitive, with a curtain that clings to the body when showering... Air-conditioning is extra (5 Euros/day), which is somewhat surprising considering the climate.
Our room was quiet, but there are a number of bars/night places in the immediate neighborhood which tend to be rather noisy at night: beware !
Our stay was very windy (not a rare occurrence it seems), which made breakfast in the courtyard somewhat less than pleasant (there are also some tables indoors, however). Breakfast (buffet) was typical for Crete.
The staff was very friendly and provided useful information about the surrounding area.
