Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
From start to finish the hotel staff were amazing very friendly and extremely helpful from car hire to bus trips or anything we needed to know about the area. It is quite a large hotel but has the atmosphere of a family friendly one. Our studio was perfect for the two of us with a modern feel and was cleaned every day at our convenience. The location is perfect overlooking the sea with a small quiet beach and and within walking distance of the beautiful old town with its narrow streets restaurants and shops. The atmosphere has a great vibe day or night. Getting there from the airport of Chania was 80 Euro by taxi but don’t be afraid to use the buses. We returned to the airport on the local air conditioned bus booked at the nearby bus station for 8 Euros each and it was quicker than the taxi. Great hotel lovely area and lovely people. Would defiantly recommend the hotel and location.

Lovely stay...
A very convenient position for the Old Town. Recently updated to a high standard, the owner Stelios and staff could not be more accommodating. Friendly, informative, always helpful. Lovely views from the balcony. Lovely clean safe pool,a nice bar offering nice simple lunches and snacks as well as a good range of refreshments. Many people only use it as a stopover, we were pleased to stay for two weeks and wouldn't hesitate to do so again. I would add one or two observations, not as a criticism, but information for travellers. There are no cooking facilities in the room, tea and coffee making facilities only, and a toaster if you ask for it. Our room had no safety box. There was no drawer space for clothes and limited shelving. The only table is on the balcony. This may be a problem for some people. It wasn't for us. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were sorry to leave.

Good hotel with nice view
We had very good time at Cyprus. The owner of the hotel is very friendly and cooperative. He recommended to us good places for eating and visiting. Stuff changed shower tub by our request. we had room on 5th flour and nice view on harbor and Fortecia, Hotel doesn't have own parking, but it's good free parking near by. The beach near by is public, small, good for children, but doesn't have shower or bathroom.

Misleading from pictures on website
Treatment from staff was mediocre. Room was filled with ants, even on the one bed that our daughter slept on. We would request extra pillows and blankets and would never get It. Would never recommend or go back.
