The breakfast is very good. The hotel is right in the old town but away from a lot of commotion. We had trouble with the air conditioner but staff were able to fix it right away. I’m finding that booking through Expedia the room selection is usually not as good as directly booking with the hotel. Last time I booked through the hotel website and we got a room with a balcony view over the street. This time we got a back room with a view of a wall. Not happyn it’s Expedia. Rates might be good but you get dumped into a bad room.

Great location
This hotel is in a great location, shops and restaurants and the old port are close by. The Nea Chora beach is less than 15 min walk away. There is an excellent bakery opposite the hotel. We had a lovely room on the 3rd floor and it overlooked the street and partial view of the sea. Thank you to Flora and Aphrodite for keeping our room clean. Only downside was an uncomfortable mattress and a small bathroom. Also if you want to hire a car, parking is very difficult as it is very busy around that area. Breakfast was continental style and was available until 10:30. Thank you to the wonderful reception staff Effie and Katerina for being very friendly, informative and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you very much to Nikos the night staff who sorted out the television problem when it went wrong. We enjoyed our stay very much and look forward to returning and seeing the newly renovated El Greco next year. Thank you once again to everyone for a very pleasant stay. We highly recommend the El Greco.

Accessible stay or NOT.
Fabulous area. The hotel claimed to be “accessible” but had two steps into the hotel and the lift was too small to fit a manual wheelchair. They did give me a downstairs room but I was unable to go to breakfast as that was down stairs. Great hotel but it is not accessible.

perfekt für kurzen Städtetrip
kleines sauberes Hotel, etwas abgewohnt aber sehr sauber und ruhig. Wir hatten leider nur Zimmer zur Rückseite und schauten auf eine Mauer. Die Dachterrasse ist sehr schön, ur sehr heiss. Leider keine Schattenspender. Freundliches Personal. Frühstück gut und völlig ausreichend. Um für 3 Tage die Altstadt zu erkunden perfekt.
