“Elpis studios...never again!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

I fell in love with Crete IN SPITE OF my stay at Elpis Studios in Kokkini Hani. My boyfriend, our friends and me booked there through the site www.volagratis.it because of the tempting price (434€ for two studios for a week) but our “apartment” was dirty, small and awful.
We found blood spots on the mattress and several kinds of spots in the bathroom! I had to wash the dirt off (and our friends - who had another apartment- had too) at least from the sink, the WC and the shower.
This latter didn’t work well because the water-spout was very weak: we called the owner to get some help but he found everything normal…how can one argue with such an answer?
Our friends found several times different black-beetles in their apartment.
We could not change our mind and go away because the owner asked for the money immediately and, questioned about the receipt, he answered: “Your receipt the last day!” We were really shocked: I know the price is really low, but I think cleanness is the first and most important thing.
Luckily we found our holidays amazing all the same because Crete is a beautiful place, its inhabitants are extremely kind and helpful and the food is great…but my advice is: DON’T GO TO ELPIS STUDIOS!!!
Almost everyone in Crete rents rooms, houses and apartments because its economy is mainly based on tourism: so, if you don’t find your ideal solution through the Internet…simply go and ask!

Stayed August 2013, traveled with friends
