Hotel Glaros - Paleochora

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 14, 2005

We had no hotel reservations when we arrived in Paleochora, so we decided we would spend no more than one hour looking around for a place to stay. 45 minutes into our search, after looking at several other places, we came across Hotel Glaros and knew right away that it was perfect for us.

Unique Quality: Beautiful greenery and colorful flowering plants cover the front of the hotel and provide shade for the large outdoor patio area where breakfast is served. It is spacious and clean, with en suite showers and toilets and air conditioning. But the best part is the husband-wife team who run the hotel. Minalos was born on Crete but lived in the US for more than 30 years before returing to Crete in the early 1990s to open this hotel with his wife, Themis. They are both super-friendly and made our stay very enjoyable. We only planned to stay for two or three nights but ended up staying five. If it hadn't been the end of our trip we would have stayed even longer because we had such a nice relaxing time there. Plus, it was the only place in all of Paleochora that we found that has real double beds, not just two twin beds pushed together. If you've traveled much in Europe, and especially in Greece, you'll understand what a rarity this is.

Directions: Hotel Glaros is located on a small one-way street that doesn't have much traffic. It is a north/south street located just to the west of the main north/south street in Paleochora.
