We walked from the bus station and Pension Lena is easy to find despite being in the beautiful old part of the city. It's a charming old, (very vertical) house with well designed updates. The room was large with a in-suite bathroom, (albeit without a shower curtain and though it pains me to say it, there was no hot water our second night there.)
The proprietor made us feel like old friends, and so did some of her somewhat eccentric guests. They were informative and encouraging regarding hiking Samaria Gorge. Breakfast on the rooftop includes fresh fruit, eggs and real coffee, and is a lovely start to the day.
