  1. Vedran From Slovenia On November 30, -0001

    Good position in capital for max two nights stay.

  2. Vinicius From Brazil On November 30, -0001

    The staff is very helpful. The location is perfect if you want to know Heraklion, but if you intend to visit west part of the island, its better to stay in Chania. The only problem is the shower.

  3. Sarah From New Zealand On November 30, -0001

    Good no frills accommodation. Short walk to everything you need. Safe neighbourhood. Staff were excellent, friendly and very helpfull.

  4. Pei-Yu From Singapore On November 30, -0001

    It was very cold, the showers and bathroom was always wet since it is tiny so when someone showers water gets everywhere. The owner is very helpful and so is his son. It wasn't located far from the bus stop but it was not as easy to get around. The rooms were clean and bright but at night it was kind of a scary area to walk home.

  5. Rebecca From USA On November 30, -0001

    Nice, clean, and inexpensive. Not a place to hang out; a bit of a walk from other places, but still walkable. Helpful staff. I would recommend it!
