We have just returned from Paleochora and Libyan Princess Hotel. We don't usually stay at hotels in Greece, but we thought we would try it this year and are very pleased we did. As others have said, it's very comfortable, the breakfast great, everything you could wish for and the staff very efficient and friendly. The rooms are cleaned every day and linen changed every two days. There is tea and coffee making facilities, a small mini bar which can be used as a fridge and complimentary bath and shower products in the very spacious bathroom which also has a hair dryer. Even the plumbing was good!
When we booked, we asked for an upper floor overlooking the pool. However, we were given an upper floor overlooking the road. As it turned out, we actually preferred this as the road was not at all busy and we felt we had more privacy. Very good double glazing and with the air conditioning it was very comfortable. We would ask for this view again.
One thing I would mention is that the restaurant closes at 9pm. We had returned late from a day out and decided to eat at the hotel. However, due to the kitchen closing at 9pm weren't able to do so, but he menu looked good.
We love Paleochora and it's a long time since we visited. It hasn't changed much, still has that Greek town feel and staying at a comfortable hotel made our holiday all the better.
I have read posts saying that the hotel is not at all Greek. However, it is a Greek family owned hotel and if by saying it is not Greek because the plumbing works and you have a bathroom that isn't covered in water all the time, comfortable beds and no lumpy pillows, then that is probably correct! We have stayed in some very dubious apartments and this hotel is a must for us now. Will definitely return.
