“Lovely hotel in Agios Nikolaos, Crete”
Reviewed 2 September 2014

The Palazzo Arhontiko is in a good location in Agios Nikolaos with everything in easy walking distance of the hotel. The beach is directly in front of the hotel and car parking is fairly easy along the sea front. There are lots of great tavernas within walking distance of the hotel. The hotel offers breakfast which is a wide variety of Greek and continental choices. The hotel staff are very helpful and the manager Popi is very knowledgeable about the local area. Agios Nikolaos is a good base for touring the east of the island. We would definitely consider staying in this hotel again if we visit the east of Crete.

We spent four weeks traveling around in Eastern Crete this summer. And the best hotel was indeed Palazzo. Not the fanciest, coolest or trendiest. But it is a honest hotel were you get your moneys worth and more. Right on the beach, goog sized rooms, extremely friendly staff, clean and almost in the middel of the lovely city of Ag. Nicolaous
Look no further!

This family-owned hotel offers a home away from home, in apartment-like suites that show a dedication to design and detail. We didn't actually spend much time in Agios Nikilaos itself, but this was a welcome place to return to after a day of exploration. All the little touches are just right. And Popi couldn't have been more helpufl.

We were welcomed by Popi, the friendly and helpful proprietor who saw to all our needs during our three night stay and offered suggestions about what to do. Our room facing the sea was very clean, comfortable, and spacious, offering a nice balcony. Excellent soundproofing too so we could get a good night's sleep. Great location, where we could just walk down to the beach, and was located nearby some nice restaurants facing the beach. The breakfasts offered a nice variety of breads, pastries, fruit, and beverages and one could eat outside facing the sea. The only challenge sometimes was finding a parking spot, but we always found one eventually. This is also a good point to explore other places (e.g. nearby villages, or a trip to Spinalonga)
Would definitely stay here again if we returned to Crete and recommend to others.

It was a last minute decision that brought us to this charming place. The apartment wasn't sea side but was very clean and cozy. It had character and was very upscale and spacious. The location was very centrally located for dining and shopping and the beach was right across the street.
Poppy even went out of her way to book the next leg of our trip. By the time we left we felt like family.

Fabulous small hotel, great service, lovely rooms/suites and a breakfast to die for. Would not hesitate to recommend or return. The only problem is that this review has to be 200 characters long and I have said all I need to say!

This hotel is adorable. The proprietor, Poppy, could not have done more to make our stay pleasant. The room was immaculate, comfortable, had a kitchenette and side view to the sea. The location is across the street from a public beach, chaise rentals with umbrellas available. Several good restaurants on the block. Breakfast is not included in base price, but at 7 euro each was a good value for a solid meal. Many thanks!
