We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights at August 2013. The area is quiet but with easy access to beach and central Paleochora. From the moment you arrive until the moment you leave, everyone is friendly and accommodating for all needs.

Our room was very clean and comfortable with a living room, mini-bar, internet, air-condition, CD-player, radio, satellite t.v., hydro massage bath, bathrobes and slippers. Breakfast was delicious with huge variety of local products The pool was very clean with great relaxing pool side.

Libyan Princess is the best place to stay if you're visiting area of Paleochora and the South of Crete. A place i'd recommend to visit is Elafonisi beach (it's about one hour driving), but you shouldn't miss to go there. That's the best beach I ever seen! Hotel has an up-date and very informative site libyanprincess.gr you can have a look for special offers, events, online reservation and info about hotel's accommodation.
We enjoyed every second at Libyan Princess hotel and we highly recommend it!

We loved this small small but nice hotel hotel located in the charming city of Paleochora. The rooms are nice and clean and the staff is very service minded. The included wifi could definitely have been quicker, but our needs were covered. Breakfast is very good with a big variation of dishes. We are quite sure that we will come back here some time in the nearest future.

This is not a typical Cretan Hotel - think of it as a business type hotel in a Mediterranean setting. This means better furnishings, etc. but you lose the kitchenette; though gain kettle. There is a decent sized pool and there were always loungers (wood with cushions and pillows) to spare. Staff were very good and helpful (and spoke good English). There is a basement, secure car park. The restaurant serves food but it is more snack type than full meal. The hotel lies on the left of the main road as you drive in, about 200m before the centre shops and restaurants. Paleochora and the surrounding areas are beautiful and we will certainly return. An extremely good and varied breakfast is included.

Incidentally, I got a much better price booking direct on the hotel's own website than through the normal agencies.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking pool are probably best though rooms overlooking road appear to have an additional...

What a find, we hired a car to get here, but would probably get the bus from Chania next time as you really don't need a vehicle once you are here.

The hotel was lovely, good rooms, a/c, great staff, pool etc etc. no problems with loungers either!

This is a lovely hotel, in a great location at the quiet end of the main street in Palechora. Loved chatting to the staff who were all very friendly and helpful. Clean room and nice breakfast. Be warned though, bus rides are extremely hot and long on narrow twisting roads...not for the fainthearted, but the 2 hours to Samaria Gorge was definitely worth it. Well deserved Trip Advisor ratings Libyan Princess!

Wanting to do a full on driving tour of Crete, stopping by various places across the island but needing a night of luxury to rest for our weary travels, we came across Libyan Princess here. It is quite the gem (and we managed to stay in the executive suite at only a handful of EURs extra - not a bad deal). Of course the rooms are fancy and new, the pool and breakfast more than adequate. Very lovely!

Room Tip: Suite if you can!
