Excellent hotel.Excellent staff. Excellent room.
We spent only two nights in this beautiful hotel in the center of the Ierapetra. The room was with sea view, stylish and very clean, lovely size bathroom. The staff at the hotel was wonderful. We would like to say special thanks to Athena and Giorgos. We will sure to come again and we certainly recommend this hotel.

Well appointed, boutique hotel....
Well located hotel on the sea front in Ierapetra. Boutique hotel, friendly staff and well appointed rooms. We paid a little bit extra for a sea view room which did not disappoint. Overall a nice hotel for a 4 night stay. Not too many amenities so not sure would suit a longer stay but perfect for a short break.

Prima en fris hotel met goede service
Mooi hotel. Leuke ontvangst. Een van de weinige hotels waarbij alles werkt zoals het hoort en heel is. Mooi ontbijt. Zwembad is meer om af te koelen dan om baantjes te trekken of dobberen en ligt vroeg in de schaduw.

Διαμονή στην Ιεράπετρα
Ένα ξενοδοχείο μπροστά στην παραλία της Ιεράπετρας, πολύ κεντρικό σημείο, άνετο δωμάτιο (σουίτα), πολύ καθαρό, ικανοποιητικό πρωινο. Βρίσκεται 5 λεπτά από το λιμεναρχείο όπου αναχωρούν τα πλοία για το νησί Χρυσή.
