“Simple and spotless”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

A lovely base for exploring the area and once here you start to relax. Delightful owners make you very welcome and nothing is too much trouble. There is a small library and a self service facility for drinks. This was our second visit and we will be back as it is spotlessly clean as well as very reasonably priced given the facilities. The hotel is very close to both the sand and pebble beach. Great places to eat and drink within strolling distance, this is also a super base for those wanting to walk. All in all we thoroughly recommend.

Friendly, spotlessly clean Greek hotel. Excellent rooms with air con that works. The most peaceful setting between the two main beaches. The lovely flower filled patio where breakfast is served is a delightful way to start the day.
I particularly liked being able to get iced water from the curtesy bar before heading off for the beach or a hike.
Bedding and towels were changed frequently and the rooms were kept clean and fresh for our whole stay.
Our breakfast preferences were catered for without fuss and lovely extras like spinach pies or apple cakes appeared to add variety. Everyone made us feel so welcomed that it was very hard to leave. We will be back!

Room Tip: The double bed s looked a little small, we moved to aa twin room and I will ask for one next time. R...

This very clean hotel is in a perfect location, close to the beaches and restaurants of Paleochora. The staff and owners are lovely, the rooms are nice and comfortable and the breakfast delicious. We can highly recommend this hotel to everybody staying in beautiful Paleochora.

We really enjoyed out stay in Glaros and Paleochora. The manager is really friendly and nice. For breakfast you have an option to order Cretan breakfast, which is worth trying.
And I received a Christmas card from them this yera, which is so sweet!
The only thing is the airconditioning wasn't too cold.
We loved the town and the people, would love to come back one day!

The Glaros is a lovely, quiet, simple hotel run by a delightful family who can not do enough for you. Rooms are quite small but have all essential facilities (air-con, en suite, fridge, TV). Breakfast is served on the terrace overlooking a quiet side street just behind the main street of the village. Breakfast is not a buffet but you have a choice of Greek style or continental, and extras (e.g. fresh orange juice) are available at extra charge. The best thing about the hotel is the family who run it who are unfailingly helpful. This is not a hotel that would suit everybody, but if you put personal service above quality of facilities it is the place for you.
