San Giorgio Apartments: Room With A View

It was in a fairly quiet (ish) surrounding as we were set slightly into the older part of Malia, which was beautiful.
We did'nt see too much of the onwers but far too much of the cleaners, which walked in on you whether you were up or not, and they kicked you out!! Which I found strange, but they were pretty quick, and good.
The views from the back of the aparts were fantastic, for as far as you could see were the mountains, amazing first thing in the morning.

We ha a pool, bar which served hot and cold snacks day and night, as well as those FAB cocktails!
The pool and its amenities were across the road, which was a stones throw from us.

From a friendly house...: Watching Ag.Minas metropolitan church...

The place i stayed in Herakleio is very close to Agios Minas metropolitan church. The only problem i had was the clock bell, that every half hour rings!

Rethimno YH: great location...

If you're stuck here as there are no more buses, this is the place to go.

as I said, centrally located, nice view of a minaret, nice staff (Nick and Manolis), a small terrace where to socialise..

International Youth Hostels from Crete: Youth Hostels in Crete, the smart choice...

I made the 3 Internationnal Youth Hostels of Crete and except one they were just a great place to stay, really welcoming and socially open, interesting people from everywhere, in fact just the great youth hostel mood and ambiance you expect to...
The three are in:
-Rethimnon
-Heraklion
-Plakias

Avoid the one from Heraklion, which is just untidy, crowded, noisy...In fact, reflecting the immage of Heraklion, which I didn't enjoy...all the more it is next to the airport, so if you love to see planes over your head all nite,,,

The one in Rethymnon is just brilliant. The staff is cool, Nick is great and speaks french perfectly.
You got everything there, internet, laundry, bar, key locks, good beds, and it could not be better located, just 2 min from everything but just outside the noise of clubs...
Rethymnon is a magnificent place so you could really plan to make a week in this hostel...6 euros a night and 35 euros for 7 days...
The one in Plakias is a natural environnement, in Olive trees you have your rooms...nice and relaxing...
Two greats and probably the best adresses to stay in Crete...

- The friendliness of the staff...
- the good feeling between hostel backpackers...
- the position of the hostels in their respective places...
- Don't forget that youth hostels is the best way to spend cheap and hugely socially rich holiday, meet great people, share many experiences...
WHAT YOU FIND IN A YOUTH HOSTEL IS WHAT YOU BRING INTO IT...

Evangelis Rooms: Place to stay in Paléochora

If you plan to see the Elafonissi Island, you should overnight in Paléochora ( see my Elafonissi guide ). You have a great beach in Paléochora too ( picture... ).
When you jump off the bus from Xania, walk straight on for 2 minutes till you see a coffee with a big METAXA pannel, where they sell breakfasts, souvlakis, coffees, metaxa, ouzo, etc...
Enter this place and ask for Evangeli, if he is not sitting on the terrace already ( a typic greek old man, very kind. He will come to you if he sees you look for sth in the corner.
I went there by intuition but was just right.
He brought me to great room close to the beach with big bed, shower, balcony, mosquito pad window, everything really clean and charming, in a quiet place...
double room around 20 euros but worth.
A nice place to stay at least 2 nights to get one day in paléochora and one on Elafonissi...

Fridge for you stuff from the market, brilliant showers, rooms in wood, very nice and welcoming...

Kallergi Refuge: Mountain Hut

For exploring the Samaria Gorge and White Mountains the ideal place for accommodation is the Kallergi Refuge. Situated some 3 km from Xyloscala (at the top of the Samaria Gorge) at an altitude of 1680 metres. It commands spectacular views of the neighbouring peaks and over the Omalos Plateau.
The Kallergi Refuge is run by Austrian mountain guide Joseph Schwemburger.

Facilities are basic, bunk beds and limited supply of hot water. For the sake of water conservation a flushing toilet is availabe for use during the evenings only, during the day the infamous "Long Drop" toilet must be used. How does one describe the Long Drop loo? Well basically it is a shed built on the edge of a sheer cliff with a bench with a hole cut into it ..ah I think you can guess the rest! Great views though!

Accomodations come in various...

Accomodations come in various sizes and prices. From luxery resorthotels 'til simple studios and appartments. Chersonissos is a bulk-touristic place. Here is an enormous cluster of hotels, pensions and rental appartements. Therefor prices here are low due to competition. Also other touristic services are plenty and relatively cheap (restaurants, discotheques etc.). Package-travels are best buys anywhere in Europe and leave thereby the excursions or transportationrentals away. They are much cheaper on the island itself.

What's the name of my hotel ?

We stayed in a little family hotel up the hill in Aghia Galini. Unfortunately, I forgot it's name. Coming from Heraklion and entering Aghia Galini, it was on the main road going down to the centre opposite Hotel Areti (this I remember because the name is on one of my pics :-)).

When having a room at the back, you have a beautiful view over the sea with nice sunsets.
