“Pleasant stay”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

Last september my sister in law and I went to crete. It was her first trip to crete. I've been there many times before. I invited her because I my husbond gave me two trickets abroad for my birthday. I was familiar with the area and decided, that Helios was the place. It is a nice and quiet hotel placed in a small street close to the beach. I' d orderd a one room flat but we'd a two rooms flat. It' s we'll equipped, spacious and with a small balcony/terrasse. The staff kind and the place is clean and nice all over. A nice swimmingpool and a pool bar serving light dishes etc. A place worth visiting. Going back to ag apost in two weeks. My sister in law is joyning me this time too. We chose crete and as apost once again, because it's a wonderfull place.

Just returned from a weeks stay in a studio apartment here in June 2014. Firstly I will include that this is my 3rd visit to Crete, including living and working here for three months and have visited many greek islands over the years, however this is the first stay in Western Crete. The service was extremely good, even before our arrival, I had a very bad experience with Expedia where they randomly cancelled my booking twice due to a system / technical error but as they never called back I in the end booked direct with Helios. We stayed in room 52 which is on the lower lever, i agree with a review here that even though they don't "look" a good location, they are indeed cool, to the point of we never had to even turn on our air con! The bathroom is modern with a good powerful shower. Only toiletries supplied is a bar of soap so bring your own. The studio was pretty large with twin beds (pushed together, normal for Greece!), a small kitchen with two hobs and a sofa. The TV did not work but to be honest we don't come on holiday to watch TV and the coffee machine stopped working but was replaced immediately when I spoke to them. The beds was unfornuately too hard for my liking and my only reason I would not go back due to my bad back! (good massage on the main road, but need to book!)
The location is truly excellent, with the beach being a 2 minute walk away and restaurant and a bar 3 -5 minute walking distance. Quickest way to the beach is turn left out of hotel to end of the road and then right, then walk through the restaurant Sorrento (may be spelt differently!) on the left. The sandy beach is not overly busy with shallow calm water. You can get the bus into Chania from the bus stop in the square (walk same way to the beach except don't turn into the restaurant carry on down). A tip they told us was to get the bus tickets from the supermarket near the bus stop as they are cheaper then getting them directly on the bus. Takes about 15 minuntes and goes every half an hour they told us (20 minutes we saw!) 1 euro 10 per person. There is car hire spaces all over and they are about the same price, 35 euros for a group A or B 40 euro for a C a day. We used the one on the main road, opposite the road where you turn down for the apartments and we had no problems. All in all good service, clean and near everything you need with out being in a "tourist area". Enjoy, we did!

Family run hotel. Excellent location close to supermarkets, restaurants and only a few min walk to one of the best beaches in the Chania area. Clean and beautiful hotel and really friendly and helpful staff. Easy to stay there with children. We needed to solve an issue and the hotel staff did that promptly and with a smile.

Could have been more tableware in the apartment, but the hotel would probably have provided more if we had asked.

Room Tip: The apartments on the first and second floor are the best.

I spent one week in this lovely hotel in September together with one of my friends. This was her first visit to Chania. It was good to be able to show her the best sides of the area. Helios is perfectly located for a tranquil vacation! The hotel itself is peaceful and the surroundings are quiet. No noisy traffic and not too crowded. We were especially happy over the big room: two ladies carry lots of things with them... The little kitchen had sufficient equipment to make a simple breakfast and lunch, the whole hotel was very nice and clean and the stuff friendly and welcoming. One minus was slightly hard beds, but this is a matter of taste, of course. We had a beautiful view over the nice swimming pool and the well kept garden from our balcony.
One of the best matters is that there are wonderful beaches close to the hotel and also that the local bus frequently passes near by. It´s easy to make trips to Chanias old harbour with its restaurants and shops. We could also find some places near the hotel where they played Greek music to listen to and to dance to, as well!
Chania is my favourite cities in Greece and I usually stay in the centre, but hotel Helios was an excellent choice for this vacation. Both my friend and I were very satisfied and wish to return some day!

Greetings from Finland. This was our third visit in Crete and again the holiday was succesfull. The Helios hotel: hotel areas, our room and swimming pools were very clean and nice. There was lot of beutiful flowers and trees. The hotel owners and staff was very helpfull and easy to contact. The beach (several), many tavernas and shops situaded close. It was very easy to buy ticket and went by localbus toHania town. We also rent a scooter and made several trips nearby. Hotel's atmosphere was very nice and the area aroud very peaceful. This hotel we could choose again.
