Bon accueil. Cependant, l hotel ce situe dans une avenue très touristique. Si vous voulez du calme, il faut mieux éviter. Mais un voyage entre ami peut-être au top dans cet hôtel. Lorsque vous prenez une chambre, le wifi est inclus mais il n y a pas la clean (7€) ni le petit-déjeuner. La réceptionniste est présente et répond aux différentes demandes.

Never again, thanks
I thought I'd save some money in Malia so I took this hotel that seemed to be lovely for a fair price. Upon arrival at 10:00 the reception was closed and no one around, had to call the mobile phone and the lady told me she will be arriving soon... all right. Room looks nothing like the photos (is it even allowed?) : ugly, old and really basic (great if you want to experience "spartan" conditions). Surprise : our room was facing the street so no sleep until 4 am with all the cars and bikes passing by (forget about view whatsoever). Cleaning lady had to be new there, I had to fight for toilet paper and ask her to change our bed because she put single sheets on double bed... 5 days stay - she cleaned only once!!! air C doesn't work, period. Bed was broken. When I went out the hotel to buy some snacks the owner (or maybe manager of the hotel) went to ask me smiling if I was travelling alone. Upon hearing that I was with my husband he seemed disappointed and just left without saying a word. Seriously?! No interest or help from the staff, the only time he went up to our room was to complain that we watch the movie with sound too loud (made me laugh since we are in a damn partying city), seemed like he did it just of vengeance. Oh yes, pleasant addition - when you are sitting in your toilet everyone on the stairs outside can see you through a little window - smile!! My advice : pay a little more and find something better.

Agréable hôtel
Nous avons séjourné 1 semaine à l’hôtel Stella Maria fin août, et c'est une bonne adresse! Très bien situé (à moins de 5 min de la rue principale: restaurants, club, supermarchés), les chambres sont spacieuses et les gérants à l'écoute. Cependant, l'insonorisation est très mauvaise... Pour dormir il faut avoir le sommeil très lourd! De plus, pour avoir la climatisation il faut payé, et vu les températures cela devient vite gênant sans clim! Sinon le ménage est fait tous les matins et la piscine est superbe. Malia est une destination pour faire la fête, pas vraiment adapté aux familles, c’était ce que nous recherchions donc en soit nous avons été satisfait de notre séjour mais si vous n'êtes pas des fêtards et que vous voulez vous reposer cette destination, et cet hôtel n'est pas pour vous...

Bruyant et clim payante!
Hotels mal insonorisé et avec une clientèle jeune et fêtarde (fin juin/ début juillet) qui rentrait bruyamment entre 2h et 7h du matin, impossible de dormir. En plus, la climatisation était payante (7€ pour avoir la télécommande de la clim) alors qu'elle était marquée comme inclue dans la réservation Personnel du restaurant très aimable et aidant mais qualité du petit déjeuner très moyen (café instantané, pain, margarine, confiture) Bien pour les fêtards.
