Lovely hotel

Fantastic hotel
Amazing boutique hotel in the heart of the old city. Unbeatable location, right on the water. Very helpful staff helped us arrange a rental car, upgraded our room to sea view free of charge. Getting to the hotel is a little different than your average hotel. No cars are allowed into the old city so you have to walk about ten minutes with your luggage down some cobble stone streets. The staff are very helpful and will come out to the road to help you with your luggage if you can coordinate with them. We arrived late at night by bus so it was a bit trickier for us. Its perfectly doable but if you are less able, definitely coordinate with the hotel for check in. Rooms are fantastic with high end finishes, we loved our balcony overlooking the harbor.

A true 5-star boutique hotel experience
I don't normally write reviews, but I feel this hotel deserves one because the experience was that good not to share. From the minute we arrived and every moment after we were continually surprised. The rooms were beautifully designed and well equipped, it truly had everything you needed and more. The quality of service was sensational, with all of the staff from the chef, front desk to cleaning staff were so friendly and attentive - you just can't help but smile and think "what an amazing hotel". No request ever seemed too much. As for the location it’s very well located and easy to get everywhere. We cannot fault this hotel at all, if you appreciate friendly staff and a true 5-star experience seriously look no further you won't be disappointed.

Amazing experience
A great boutique hotel with lovely decoration. My girlfriend and I had fantastic time at the presidential suite on the top floor. Hotel manager Christina was very helpful. The kitchen staff (great breakfast!!) and cleaning ladies were very friendly and helped us having an amazing holiday. We will for sure come back.

Great stay and location
Great location in Old town, wish we would have just splurged on the room with sea view. The staff was very nice. On our second day we wanted to do the Samaria Gorge hike (highly recommend) they helped us book that and had a packed lunch waiting for us the morning of the hike. Highly recommend this hotel.
