“family run apartments for a short stay”
Reviewed 30 June 2012

To summarize our stay in this hotel: this is in no way a two star hotel. This is nice and cozy family-run apartments you should book for a MAXIMUM 2-4 days visit. Keep in mind that A/C and fridge shall cost you EUR6 and EUR3 per day.

We did suffer from poorly working fridge and especially from the breakfast - the same cheese and ham for the 12th day in a row made us sick. On the other hand staff was really great.

Pros:
+ very friendly and helpful staff (basically it is the key reason to book this hotel)
+ nice location not far away from main streets
+ charming atmosphere of old family-run business

Contras:
- the rooms are not cleaned properly
- very limited selection of food during the breakfast (we did miss eggs, toasts and other basic things one could expect from a breakfast)
- fridge is very old, noisy and small, it cooled our food&drinks really badly
- most of facilities need rennovation
- no TV, no radio provided in the rooms

I can give nothing but praise for this hotel, the rooms i found where kept to a high standard and the owners well what can i say except they made myself and friend so welcome we had booked a holiday in the heronissos but due to problems there we where sent to the Miramare for the first night i only wish we had booked at the Miramare instead as they treated people as friends and if GEORGE reads this say hello to your Father from Ian and Dean

When we booked our holiday with the help of travelling agency TUI (Moscow), there were no reviews about the hotel, only photos. We decided to take a risk and stay in Miramare. And we were not dissappointed.
About our room: we had a double bed, a huge balcony with two chairs and a table, a huge wardrobe (more than enough place for 2 girls:)), safe and air conditionair. So there is everything you need for exellent holiday. What is more important, Miramare hotel is situated in the center of the city so it takes you 2 minutes appr. to get to all the clubs and restaurants, but the music won't disturb you in the night if you want to have a rest in your room. It's also not far from the beaches, approximately 5-7 minutes. Room cleaning takes place every day exept i(f i'm not mistaken) sunday. To be honest we had not very beautiful view from our balcony, but didn't spend there more than 10 minutes a day, so it doesn't matter.
Very friendly and polite staff!!! If you need anything, you will always get help or advise.
So in my opinion it's an excellent hotel for reasonable price. If i return to Crete i will stay in Miramare for sure.

We booked the hotel through hotels.com, but since the price was so low we didn't knew what to expect. fortunately arriving at the hotel was a pleasant surprise. The room had all the basics that you would expect from a standard hotel + the ability to pay a little extra for a fridge and aircon.

The pool area was quite nice, the pool was clean and the hotel offered sun beds.

When we booked the hotel at hotels.com there was no indication on wether they offered wifi or not, we were pleasantly surprised when we found out Miramare offer free wifi in the bar area.

The hotel bar was a winner, the staff was very friendly. and willing to make drinks which weren't on the card. The bar prices were very reasonable. The music played in the bar rocked!

Overall the stay at the hotel was perfect and i can only give my highest recommendations to the hotel.

Im sure we will be back next year

When i first checked the hotel and i saw these photos i thought that it is not so nice... But when i arrived to Miramare Hotel and i saw with my own eyes that the photos don't represent that hotel i understood that it was a mistake and the photos were not from this Miramare Hotel. The hotel is very nice and in the center of the city. The beach is only 3 minutes from the hotel and the clubs 2 minutes :D. The room was clean and i had good service.The swimming pool was lovely and cleaned. The staff was great and very friendly. Thanks for everything!!! :-) I will upload some photos so you can see :)

We had initially booked a package hol with our travel agent and were landed in the maras appartments across the road from this hotel. they were such a disgrace we demanded to be moved to alternative accommodation but because initially we had to pay for the miramare hotel from out spending money, they gave us the rooms for a more than reasonable price. I think they felt sorry for us being 4 girls on holiday and being landed in horrible appartments from hell and having to use our spending money for accomodation after already paying fot the maras appartments (over johnny foxes pub). Because of this I think they gave us the rooms at a cheaper rate than the norm. this is a family run hotel and the people are sooo nice and will do what they can to ensure you have a good time. Its in a great location and has a lovely pool out the back .The rooms were clean and the staff at the miramare made our holiday as fun as it was! :D
