Budget hotel

If you just need a quick stay before a flight this may work. The staff was nice but rooms are old and dated. If your on a tight budget this may work for you but not for a relaxing time or family hotel.

One night

I stayed here with my wife and daughter as our flight was arriving in Crete at stupid o'clock in the morning and our main hotel for our stay would not have room ready until after 14:00.. This was all due the airline changing the flight times.. I opted for the Handakas due to its good reviews and its location being over the room from our primary hotel... The staff are lovely and seem like they cannot do enough to help you.. That was a great welcome to Crete and one we remembered thoughout our stay and to this day.. The room we had was a little knackered but we made the best of it seeing as it was only going to be for about 8 hours so we could get out heads down for a little while then get some breakfast and them decamp to our hotel across the road...

Pros: The staff are what makes this place, I almost wish I could have had more time there, but not in that room.

Cons: the rooms need a refurb, they are way to basic in the comffort and decor levels.. Our aircon did not work but i brought a fan with me so we slept ok.

Thanks Sophie

We have been so well served with a free extension of stay by Sophie that we cannot give a bad review. The room was average size with AC & balcony. They were a moisty smell in the room. We found the solution by cleaning the filthy AC filters. The people who clean the linens are surely smokers because the sheet had a strong cigarette smell (should be a easy solution). Beside that all was OK and close to your need. Just 5 min. Walks you can pick the bus #1 (next to Castro Hotel) to the airport (1.70€ from the machine)
