Are you looking for great hospitality, great breakfast, clean and comfortable rooms, great value for your money?
Thi is the place to go!
The hotel is renovated for the season of 2011, located away from the main road but not more than 300 meters from the beaches. You can choose from a lovely sandy beach och a pebble beach.
We'll see you there next season.

Small, very quiet and clean, seems to be just renowated. Friendly people run it, breakfast was a great part of every day. The best place to stay in a beautiful Paleochora!

We booked this hotel over the internet mainly due to its low price so we didn't expect to be amazed. After leaving the hotel though, we were happy to realize that we had made an excellent choice.
First off, the hotel is placed away from the noisy main road, but very close to the nearby beaches. Parking is easy and free, so you can take your car to the more remote beaches.
My primary requirement for booking a hotel was to include free wi-fi internet, which it did. Low price and breakfast were welcome additions to the whole package. As were the spacy room with the nice balcony.
The hotel is redecorated and surely it hides its age. It is a family business and the people running it are very kind.
I will be visiting this hotel again.

I went to Paleochora for a few days of relaxation with my girlfriend after a busy trip in the end of June. We had made no reservations, since this was still low- to mid-season and we wanted to look around first. We found the Hotel Glaros while looking into different options among hotels and rooms to let.

The location was one reason for our choice, since the building is situated off of the main road and a few blocks away from the seaside on either side of the road; this made it almost ideal for avoiding the typically noisy late evening and night traffic and crowds at resort places like this.

A second reason was the very good impression I got from the people who run the place and the room we got. Expect no frills or fancy features, and you're in for an honestly good and very clean lodging suggestion. Combined with the price, I think that our stay there was a very good and economical choice to make. We had gotten offered a room-to-let earlier, and at a rate of just 5 Euros less than the Glaros nightly rate I would still probably never had gone for it, quality-wise. I consider even more important the hospitality we felt from the family that owns the Glaros place. Our stay was very pleasant throughout those few days there, and we had a great starting point from where we ventured to the surrounding beaches and excellent near destinations.

There was breakfast available out in the front hotel yard in the mornings. The setting is beautiful, as you get to enjoy a bite or a drink under the straw/bamboo roof, surrounded by green. The offerings are modest and there are typically kitties around to keep you company; whether you like them or not, they can tell so you'll stay satisfied in either case! A curiosity that we experienced was the crowd of aged folks that we'd sporadically come across at the hotel yard, or in the hotel lounge in front of the television. We're not sure whether these were in a group of visitors like us, or more probably neighbors getting together and enjoying each other's company. That was a fun bit, and if you experience it yourself, you'll probably know by then...

Overall we had a fine stay, and enjoyed hotel Glaros as much as we enjoyed the unique Cretan environment, hospitality, cuisine and this amazing climate and bright sun towards the southernmost edge of Europe (that edge is actually the island of Gavdos at a relatively brief boat trip across from Paleochora-one for the future yet, this trip, I guess). Many "don't miss"es here and things to do, so before you check out the related "don't miss" box below, let me recommend in advance a full day at the remote beach of Elafonisi (but get there before the buses arrive at about 10am, and no matter how adventurous you feel, take the paved road to get there); at least a meal stop at the historic village of Kandanos on your way to Paleochora; trips to the nearby town of Sougia and to Gavdos island; and a must-do dinner, as recommended in the separate box on this page.
