We checked in to the Phoenix Hotel at Plakias, Crete and were pleasantly surprised. The price of the hotel is not expensive, so i wasn't expecting much.
The hotel is very basic, but clean and new. Upon arrival, the Receptionist/Manager was very friendly and showed us the room etc.
The room was very clean and bright with high ceilings and balcony. The location is not near the village center and shops but it is very close to the beach.
Breakfast at the hotel is ok. Not great. After 10 days we got a bit tired of the monotony, but overall it was fine.
- free wifi in hotel room
- clean and new
- close to beach
- friendly staff
- bright and clean rooms
- small bathroom (especially the shower stall)
- monotonous breakfast
- far from shops
- basic set up of room (wooden bed frame, funny curtain and basic sheets)
- walls are thin, so you can hear people talking in the corridor
Would recommend to friends who are budget conscious.
Do note that there is no restaurant at this hotel, so it is better to eat elsewhere for lunch or dinner.More
