      Great place to stay!

      We love this place! The family atmosphere is fun and relaxing and you are minutes away from a couple of beaches or a quick ride into the city center.

      Quiet and comfortable

      Great little family run apartment hotel. We felt comfortable and safe there. Our little kitchen was great for breakfast and to make morning coffee. There was a nice eating area, patio and living room. We only put our feet in the pool but it was nice too. The host was so nice and welcoming and offered great advice on the area. We walked to the old city each day.

      Great Stay!

      We had a wonderful stay. Host was very accommodating to our needs. We had to arrive very late, after mid-night, due to a long drive. No problems, we arrived, he gave us the key, and said it's late we can do the formal check in tomorrow sometime!

      Family trip to Chania

      We had a great time. The location is near Chania, however far enough to be away from the hustle and bustle. Lots of parking and nice pool available. Good value for money. The beach is super near and very nice. 24x7 grocery available within 300m walk and some nice bakeries also.

      Très bien

      Nous n'y avons séjourné que 3 jours mais nous avons passé un très bon moment. Pas de parking privé mais des places sont accessibles à proximité (grand parking gratuit ouvert). L'entrée de l'appart'hôtel est un peu caché (petite riel pour y accéder. Le bâtiment est à 2 pas de la plage et à 15 minutes en voiture du centre de Chania. Côté apparemment, nous avons eu la bonne surprise d'être surclassé. Le studio était très propre et très fonctionnel côté cuisine. Quelques restrictions au niveau des horaires pour la piscine pour cause sanitaire qui ne nous ont pas vraiment fait défaut. Des serviettes nous ont été prêtée pour la baignade. Personnel très agréable! Je recommande

      NIce and cosy hotel, 2min walk to fabulous beach!

      Great small hotel near Chrissi akti beach. This beach is fabulous, shallow and 2 chairs with umbrellas only 7e (June-19). Couple supermarkets and tavernas in walking distance. The kids loved pool - kids section for toddlers and bigger section with nice spot to jump to pool! Very easy to communicate with Andreas before vacation. He arranged taxi (and the key for us in the middle of night 2am) and check-in was easy next morning. We had few issues (some bugs in bathroom) but that was fixed immediatly. Warmly recommend!
