    Lovely apartment near sandy beach

    Could have done with larger saucepan and maybe a kettle but there wasn't anything we didn't like.

    Great location with easy access to lovely sandy beach if you feel the need for a change from the really nice pool. Comfortable, spacious and very clean room. Short walk to shops and buses to Chania. Really lovely, helpful owners. There for a wedding nearby so didn't get much chance to test the menu but breakfast and light meal one evening was very good. Friends who stayed nearby for extra nights gave good reviews of local tavernas. Excellent gelateria a few minutes walk if you love icecream like we do.Would certainly return if we visit Crete again.

    Nothing major. The coffee machine wasn't great and didn't heat up the water enough. And the bathroom was a bit small. The woolen blankets provided could have smelly a bit fresher.

    Very friendly and hospitable owner/staff. The studio apartment we had was spacious and comfortable. Location for us was perfect - quiet and close to the beach. The apartments are located in an area which us a mix of residential and hotels and not a resort (might not suit everyone). Shops, proper supermarkets (inka and lidl) and tavernas are within easy walking distance. And Chania town is about 4km away and can be walked or take the bus for €1,20. Would stay there again!

    Great location for access to beautiful beaches and central Chania
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • 2 rooms
    • Stayed 2 nights

    The pool area was crowded during the main part of the day. The rooms feel a little bare but are good value for money.

    We loved the pool at Helios - it was a really good size with a nice surround. We had really lovely cocktails from the poolside bar. The setting around the pool is very attractive and well designed. It is a short stroll through the surrounding area of hotels and restaurants to the beaches of Agioi Apostoli. They are very picturesque - the Iguana Beach was our favourite. It was easy to hop on the number 21 bus in to central Chania, where we had a great time wandering the back-streets and harbour, visiting museums (The Maritime Museum was our favourite), eating out and even having a short boat tour where we swam and got to see beautiful fish swimming! We only stayed two nights but we packed a lot in!

    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children

    We did not like our room which was located 'below pool level'. We read carefully reviews of the hotel but did not find any negative comment and therefore decided to book such a room because it had reasonable price for its size. Somehow we had a feeling that 'below pool level' means that there would be a terrace on the other side of the building above the street level. Well, it was not the case. 'Below pool level' really means below street level. From the window one can mainly see a concrete wall. In the beginning we were quite upset but then somehow got used to it. It seems that the locals do not mind these shadow rooms but for us coming from the north to see the Sun the room was too dark and also a bit too damp. Overall I can recommend the Helios Appartment to everyone looking for a quiet beach vacations but suggest thinking twice before booking a room 'below pool level'.

    The location is excellent: on a quiet street, yet close to the beach, shops, restaurants and supermarkets. The staff is friendly and the owner seems to care about hotel's good reputation.
