This place is priceless! I’ve been traveling to Crete every year with my wife and I can’t pick any other hotel than this. Luxurious, romantic, fantastic view and amazing staff. Close to all the restaurants and bars, in the heart of the old harbor. Hands down the best hotel experience I had in Greece so far! Highly recommend it, 5 isn’t enough.
