Reviewed 22 May 2014

Have just returned from a 2 week holiday at the Krana apartments Lindos. Have nothing but praise , our apartment was spacious and spotless. There are only 14 apartments there so it is not a big complex which is exactly what my partner and I were looking for. It overlooks the acropolis and the views are lovely. The apartments are opposite the road which leads down to the beautiful village of Lindos but it is a steep walk back up but there is a bus which runs during the day if you prefer. The village has plenty of restaurants but our personal favourite was Bysantino the food was excellent and the staff were more than helpful.Pals bar is a vocal and central part of the village and Stelios and Pannos are entertaining characters and it is well worth a visit. Back up the top you have the Ice bar which is next to the Krana, it became our local while we were there as it is only a sort walk home. The staff at the Ice bar are wonderful we did have a few favourites and they will know who they are. We would like to thank Marina and Fedra who own and run the Krana for a lovely stay and Poppy the crazy maid who was very hard working and made our stay fun. Well worth a second visit and will be booking very soon .

Room Tip: Book early if you want a front facing apartment

We stayed at Krana hotel last week in August. Upon arrival we were greeted and taken to our room, which was so clean and tidy.We were self catering so it came equipped with pans, cups, kettle and toaster, cutlery, and a small fridge freezer ( life saver for cooling bottles of water as it was getting into the late 40's temp wise) Best pool ive seen in any hotel, ever. Pretty steep walk into the nearby town , but a gorgeous one at that. Management do a great job here, I would go back tomorow. Thank you krana hotel :)

These apartments are absolutely brilliant. We had a larger, family sized apartment (only one left when we booked) and it was spacious, well equipped and very clean.

The apartments are ideally located for wandering into town in the day/evening and it is a hike back out to the apartments but only because of the hill the town is on - staying in the town wouldn't be as nice though.

The pool area is lovely, the food is good, we would definitely return.

We did have a slight issue with the owner, but this was the travel operator's fault really. We arrived late at night and picked up our car at the airport. We asked the travel company for directions to the apartments which they gave us, and they told us when we get there the gate will be shut but just drive in and park wherever. We duly did this and it was a big mistake - the owner was very cross with us and would not check us in until we moved the car into the little square below the apartments (where the car stayed without issues all week). The next day we ate some humble pie and the owner then explained that she had only had the terracotta floor tiles replaced recently and so no parking was allowed. To be fair I don't think her english is brilliant, and she has troubles with her hips as well so I think the 'rudeness' others have complained of is just being a little tired and abrupt in fact. She runs a tight ship, keeps the apartments looking great, and for the rest of our holiday she could not have been nicer - giving us tips on where to eat and where to go and explore.

We loved this place - would definitely return.

Large, basic and extremely clean apartments. Amazing pool great views never crowded. Jenny, Marina and Fedra were very welcoming, we sometimes had complimentary fruit or cakes with our drinks nice touch. We enjoyed the peaceful and relaxed atmosphere and had none of the niggles others appear to have had. We loved it and plan to return .... favourite restaurant had to be Ambrosia thanks to George and his passion for food. Every restaurant we tried had good food. A taxi back from the square was our guilty treat.

We stayed at the Krana from 9th October for one week. Our room was very basic especially as it was self catering, you could not have put together a decent meal with the utensils provided. It was however very clean.. We did not have a view from our apartment in fact it was very dark at all times of the day and the cleaner cupboard was outside the bedroom window so early morning noise is inevitable. The noise from the apartment above was also unbelievable and the beds rock hard.. In total the room was a no no.. The ladies running the establishment were accommodating accept the older lady was very rude to one of our party blaming her for pulling down a curtain pole that had fallen on her without her doing anything to it at all..
Another point that I would like to make is the pool is unusable, yes it was October as we were told by the owners when we said how cold it was but I have been abroad early in the year and later and never have I known a pool that cold.
As for location yes the view is lovely but the hill to Lindos town and the beach is horrendous any more than once a day and as for the steps from the apartment to the road below have no handrail and to be frank are dangerous especially in the evenings when the lighting is bad.
In short I would never stay there again at any time of the year and I would advise anyone to pay a little more and stay somewhere else!!

Room Tip: The only rooms that are decent are the ones overlooking the pool

Actually still at the Krana whilst waiting for the coach transfer to the airport, homeward bound.

Having enjoyed many Greek Island holidays in self catering ( or small bed and breakfast pensions/hotels), The Krana ranks as one of the best on all counts.

Everywhere in Lindos is on an incline- this is no exception as previous reviewers have said. However, the town, beaches and Acroplolis are accessible on foot - some of us just need to pace ourselves!

The apartments themselves are of a good quality, kept exceptionally clean, well appointed and have really good linen supplied. The pool area is lovely, surrounded by pretty gardens, and the views magnificent. Snacks and drinks are available at the pool during the day and the owners friendly and helpful.

This holiday at the Krana was a delight, thank you.

Room Tip: Think every room is different, in the height of the summer it may be more comfortable in the cooler...

We recently spent a week at the Krana Apartments and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
The owners made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed the company of the other guests. The rooms and all other areas were exceptionally clean. The views from our accommodation were beautiful (overlooking Lindos village and the acropolis)
Having experienced the most friendly holiday we have had we are looking forward to making a return visit next year,
