“Big Spacious Rooms from the 1970's”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

The rooms are dated and in need of a refresh. The AC was anemic and needed to be replaced or refurbished. The AC units in each room are fitted with a key-lock to allow management to disable it for customers who have not paid extra for AC. There was a creepy feeling about the place because it's quite large but there were few if any other guests. I'm a traveler and prefer budget accommodation so I was really surprised by the difference between the hotel we read about in the reviews and the one we stayed at - they simply didn't match. We warmed up to the hotel after a couple of days but in that time we didn't see anyone using the pool or more than 1 other person staying in the hotel. Weird. The WiFi was very weak - forcing us to go down to the lobby to get our email. On the other hand, the room is indeed the size of a small one-bedroom apartment and that seems to be the main appeal of this hotel. There are many other hotels in the area so it's location is not particularly unique.

Room Tip: Get a room on the main floor - it'll be cooler, close to the pool and less of a hike to your roo...

The room and service is very good.
Also, the beach is very close to the hotel.
I like the hotel.
The only one point need to improve is the in-room wifi.
The signal is very weaker and difficult to connect to the internet.

My stay here was extremely comfortable. The rooms are very spacious and clean and staff super helpful, flexible and easy going.

My room had 2 separate balconies.

The location is ideal. Its very central but quiet.

I had never been to Greece before and didn't know where to stay which places were best and what to do. I chose Artemis based on the price and amazing reviews on trip advisor and couldn't have been happier. Those few days in Greece were some on the best in my life and made all the better by the location of Artemis. Only a very short walk to the beach, the amazing beach front and everything you could possibly need for adventure or relaxation. Artemis has everything you need as a base for your holiday and we enjoyed our time their immensely. Kostas is just lovely and went over and beyond for us when we had a minor medical emergency. If you want to spend all your time at the hotel I probably wouldn't pick this place, but if you want to experience Crete and don't just want to sit in your hotel apartment Artemis is the place for you.

The manager of this place is extremely welcoming and helpful. He made our stay at the apartments as comfortable as possible. The rooms are cleaned daily and are in good condition, basic kitchen but all that is required for holiday cooking. I would highly recommend these apartments if you are visiting Crete. Very good value for money

Stayed there for a week from 13/5/2014. The place has obviously seen better days. Room was sparsely furnished, nothing like the posed photos on their web site.

A bedroom with two incredibly uncomfortable single beds with old, creaky mattresses. Army style grey blankets. A living room with a kitchenette - fridge, a small electric oven/hob and a sink. Assortment of plates and cutlery. No sink plug or washing up liquid. No bottle opener. In the living area another single bed, a large number of stools, a single armchair, a coffee table and a TV strapped to a dodgy looking wall bracket. A balcony overlooking the inner courtyard and the smallish swimming pool. A/c unit in the bedroom for which you have to pay extra. Same for the safe. Tiny bathroom with rickety toilet seat, bath with a shower.

At night the mosquitoes emerge to bite you to death. Bring plenty of Deet.

The place was actually kept very clean - although as we appeared to be the only people there the cleaner wouldn't have been all that busy.

Should the place ever get full it will probably become quite noisy. And you will have to get up early to grab one of the three poolside loungers.

Stay somewhere else.

Stayed here with my wife between 08/10/13 and 15/10/13. As we were arriving late I had asked the owner to arrange a taxi to collect us. We were met by a lovely young lady at the airport who had arranged a taxi for us. Driven straight to the apartments and booked in by Kostas who was very helpful. Nothing was ever too much trouble for him. The apartment is basic but clean with 2 balconies and air conditioning. It is cleaned everyday by the cleaner who brings clean towels and bed linen. The location of the apartment is excellent with beach only 100 metres away and the town centre less than 5 minutes walk. We found a lovely little family Taverna called Mythos just 5 minutes walk away. (This is mentioned itself on Tripadviser, definitely one to visit). For those who wish to do more than just sunbathe a hire car is worth getting. Again Kostas recommended a decent company which was a reasonable price with peace of mind regarding insurance etc.
If you are looking for nice clean accommodation with pleasant and friendly owners then this is the place to stay. Thank you Kostas we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
