“Couldn't be Better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

I stayed 5 nights there and found the place extremely good value for money. It is right on the water just around the corner from the lagoon. There is a very small beach in front of it, but better ones just down the street. The hotel is clean and very quiet and all the rooms have a sea view with a balcony, and table and chairs for your sundowners!!!!. The entrance is strange as you go through the shop to get the lift, but there is an outside door for later entrances after midnight when the shop closes. The owner is very nice and helpful. I really can't fault the place.

Room Tip: No tips really as all the rooms have sea views.

Having just arrived in Crete, we caught the bus to Agios Nikolaos. We got help with accommodation via the Tourist Information Centre based in town however, we ended up choosing Hotel Angelos after the owner, driving along, saw us walking down the street with our backpacks and offered us a room. Their offer was a room for 25 euros, but we got the room for 20 euros as the place we were going to was only 18. However, the offer of a balcony overlooking the sea was worth paying an extra 2 euros.

The room was very clean and definitely big enough for two people. It had a fridge, table and chair, our own ensuite, tv and a balcony overlooking the water. It was quite lovely. The hotel is also above the owners market/shop, so any supplies or late night snacks we needed were at our fingertips. Everything was close by as we were right in town. Restaurants and bars were within a 3 minute walk of the hotel, if that. Unfortunately, as with a lot of the hotels in Greece being tiled, the properties tend to echo quite a bit so can be noisy, and this hotel was no different. It's probably wise, especially if you're a light sleeper, to take some ear plugs with you.

Other than that, I can definitely recommend this hotel - very well priced for its excellent location, the owners were friendly and the hotel very clean. Would definitely stay here again.

  • Liked — Location and views
  • Disliked — Could get a bit noisy - if it was in peak season with young people, would be a nightmare!
  • Tips/Secrets — Take earplugs if a light sleeper

The main problem with travelling to Crete in the winter months (November to March) is that some of the hotels, restaurant/bars and shops close for this period. The Hotel Angelos solves this problem by being open all year round.

The Hotel Angelos is situated on the seafront above the family run supermarket and gift shop and comprises 4 floors of rooms, all the rooms having a balcony, air conditioning, and either shower/bath facilities. The Hotel rooms are less than 5 years old and are in good condition. There is no breakfast provided, though there are hot drink making facilities, but there are cafes on the town centre waterfront, 10 minutes walk away.

The family who run the Hotel are very very helpful and friendly, and although there can be language difficulties these are not insurmountable. Like most Cretans I have met, you are taken to be part of an extended family very quickly.

There is street parking outside the Hotel in the winter months, but in the summer there are parking bays on the street, the nearest being 200 yards away.

The views are very impressive from the rooms, and in the summer can almost be classed as idyllic. If you are fortunate you may even see a Kri Kri (an endangered Antelope) on the island 800 metres off the sea front.

I would heartily recommend the Hotel Angelos to anyone.
