Stopped here for two nights as a couple at the end of July. Have been here before two years ago, which is why we came again. It was equally as good as last timeout not better. Friendly helpful staff plus we had a nice high room overlooking the pool as requested. It's quiet here and we slept well in the large room in a large comfortable bed, helped by excellent aircon. The jacuzzi bath was an extra bit of luxury, with bath robes provided. Nice sized balcony although it was very windy when we were there. The beach on one side is very stony and the other is large and sandy. We preferred driving to the beach at Elaphonisi - fantastic and not to be missed. It's a small town though nice to wander round for an hour or so and have a drink or ice cream or visit the fort at the top of the hill. We ate out when here and found ourselves spoilt for choice with some excellent restaurants to suit all tastes. We preferred those by the stony beach, rather than up Main Street. The hotel was very clean. Breakfast has improved since our last visit. A wide variety was available including classic Greek fare. Fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal, hot food, breads, cakes etc. a kettle to boil water for tea - good idea. A good base for visiting this area. We'll come again.

Stayed: July 2013, traveled as a couple

Paleochora is a small village and Libyan Princess might be the only 5 star hotel there. It is located at the main street, near bus station. The staff was very friendly and people at the reception spoke good English.

Our double room was on the first floor, balcony facing the street. The room was pretty big and very clean. We weren't disturbed with the noise from the street. Some noise could be heard from the other rooms, but not so much.

Breakfast was included with the price and there was plenty to choose from. After a week some changes would've felt nice.

The pool area looked very nice. We preferred the sea and didn't swim at the pool. The stony beach is pretty close.

WiFi was free but we had some problems with the connection. I guess the walls are so thick that they block some signals.

We enjoyed our stay at the Libyan Princess and would love to return there.

We stayed 4 nights at Libyan princess and the did enjoy the place a lot. Very nice staff, extremely clean and well kept with interesting art all over.
Pool area Ok, but a little small. Rooms very good. Breakfast has very high class. We stayed there the whole family, but a would say that this hotel is more suitable for couples or lone travellers.
They offer wifi, but the system is difficult; you have to write your code everytime you log in (at least with iPhone/iPad).
Paleochora it self is a must! Very nice villige!

We have just returned from Paleochora and Libyan Princess Hotel. We don't usually stay at hotels in Greece, but we thought we would try it this year and are very pleased we did. As others have said, it's very comfortable, the breakfast great, everything you could wish for and the staff very efficient and friendly. The rooms are cleaned every day and linen changed every two days. There is tea and coffee making facilities, a small mini bar which can be used as a fridge and complimentary bath and shower products in the very spacious bathroom which also has a hair dryer. Even the plumbing was good!

When we booked, we asked for an upper floor overlooking the pool. However, we were given an upper floor overlooking the road. As it turned out, we actually preferred this as the road was not at all busy and we felt we had more privacy. Very good double glazing and with the air conditioning it was very comfortable. We would ask for this view again.

One thing I would mention is that the restaurant closes at 9pm. We had returned late from a day out and decided to eat at the hotel. However, due to the kitchen closing at 9pm weren't able to do so, but he menu looked good.

We love Paleochora and it's a long time since we visited. It hasn't changed much, still has that Greek town feel and staying at a comfortable hotel made our holiday all the better.

I have read posts saying that the hotel is not at all Greek. However, it is a Greek family owned hotel and if by saying it is not Greek because the plumbing works and you have a bathroom that isn't covered in water all the time, comfortable beds and no lumpy pillows, then that is probably correct! We have stayed in some very dubious apartments and this hotel is a must for us now. Will definitely return.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Libyan Princess Hotel. The hotel is modern and quiet and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast buffet and Wi-Fi worked fine. Nice bathrooms with plenty of water pressure for a good shower. Rooms have comfortable beds with good quality linens and minibar. Easy to park just outside hotel or in their underground garage. No complaints at all - would definitely return to this hotel.

Paleochora is a very nice town with plenty of good tavernas all a short walk from the Hotel. There are some good beaches within 15 minute drive from the town and a couple of beaches actually in the town itself. It is somewhat off the tourist track - much less chaotic than Chania etc.
