    View and comfort

    The view from the balcony of the panorama suite was astonishing (sea and swimming pool).Our private swimming pool and roof terrace was more than satisfying! Inside the room everything was very clean luxurious and comfortable!we ve never slept on a bed like this!!! The food at the buffet restaurant was delicious! Asterion hotel and suite 303 is definitely worth a visit!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Located at the west end of the Platania strip thus it’s more quiet and relaxing Not exactly the best beach. Great for tanning but very rocky and the ocean water is not as clear as some other beaches in the Chania area. The hotel had friendly staff and the pool area was very appropriate. Good for families. Reasonable pricing. Mattresses are quit stiff but this seems to be the norm in Greece.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Üble Geschichte. Nicht hin gehen!

    die 5 Sterne treffen nicht im Ansatz zu. Unsere "Suite" war ein heruntergekommenes Loch. Die Möbel schäbig, das Sofa voller Flecken, die Fugen im Bad und der Einbauküche schimmelig, die Mückennetze vor den Fenstern zerrissen. Da will man nicht hin. Die Fotos auf der Homepage: schwer nachvollziehbar, wo die gemacht wurden. Das ganze Hotel ist schmuddelig, dreckig, versifft. Als wir ankamen lagen auf den Treppenstufen zwei zerquetschte Weintrauben. Als wir 3 Tage später gingen, da lagen sie immer noch da. Der Pool ist eklig - also ich ging da nicht rein. Das Personal bemüht sich nicht, dass die Gäste sich wohl fühlen, sondern dass ihre "Rules" eingehalten werden. Z.B: Pooltücher gibts bloss 2 Mal die Woche neue. Nicht verhandelbar. Am Tage des Check-out baten wir um 30 Minuten Verspätung: Nein, geht nicht. Keine Frage: wie hat es ihnen gefallen und dergleichen.... Halbpension besteht aus fantasielosen Foodbars, Frühstück und Abendessen. Um 10:05 rannte das Personal der Foodbar entlang und räumte die Schöpfbestecke ein, damit sich keiner mehr was nehmen kann. Denn um 10:00 ist Schluss. Das Essen ist ungeniessbar. Wir sind nach einem ersten Versuch dann jeweils sonst wo essen gegangen; obwohl wir Halbpension bezahlt haben. Also ich weiss nicht, wie sich sowas 5 Stern Luxus Hotel nennen kann. Wer da hin geht ist selber schuld, oder so wie wir auf die trügerische Homepage rein gefallen. Nicht hingehen! Toxisch.

  • 2.0.Poor

    5 star hotel but quality of a 2 star

    I'm afraid, NOT a real 5 star hotel (despite the pictures on !!! - Location: The hotel is situated in a calm area. There is nothing to do around. No nightlife. You will need a car to go to any place (restaurant, bars, shops, ...) in that area.The only attraction is the "normal" swimming pool. The beach is not extraordinary. - Room: The room is big but a bit old: the AC & the fridge were doing too much noise: Impossible to sleep. The bed was not at all comfortable. In the room, I was welcomed with a bottle of red wine. It was a nice token, but no water? I would rather have the water for free than a bottle of wine...(especially for people like me who doesn't drink alcohol) - Food: Quality was extremely poor. So, disappointed for a 5 star hotel!!! I was expecting to have some choices, at least for breakfast, some season fruits, ... For example: for the whole hotel, in terms of fruits, I only find 1 small plate of "old" & non-fresh watermelon. no other choice than unfresh fruit cut in small pieces. I'm not even talking about the croissants, coffee, ... - Services: People from the reception were nice and trying to help but all the facilities were against them.
