“The friendly monopoly”
Reviewed 29 April 2011

We arrived in Agios Georgios on a cold wet April evening and walked into the hotel Rea on the main street. Maria greeted us (lots of smiles and a little English) and directed us to the sister establishment, Maria's rooms, around the corner. We were given a double room overlooking a back street (quiet) and Mr Maria turned on the radiator which rapidly got very hot but took a while to make an impact on the air temperature - I don't think they understand insulation in these parts! In particular there was no heat in the bathroom, and no means of clearing the condensation other than opening a window into a lightwell, so the whole room got very steamy.
The beds are set on solid concrete bases, so can't be moved, and the actual matresses are not over large. Moving around the room we were at constant risk of bruised shins.
We walked back up the street to Rea for dinners where Maria showed us what was cooking and served up tasty meals, if somewhat limited in choice. The place seems to be a haven for planthunters at this time of year, so we exchanged sightings with several groups in various languages.
Breakfast was a bit thin - just a couple of bits of bread, some packeted jam and butter, tea or coffee, for 4 euros - pretty poor value. The room was 40 euros.
Overall the experience was reasonably pleasant - Maria is certainly friendly and chatty, but we had much better value elsewhere in Crete.
