Hotel Hermes Malia, Crete
No weather data found for [, ”Crete”, ”Malia”, horizontal]
A real surprise that this property only receives an official 2-star rating, as it is of a higher standard than most other young and lively properties in the resort with a higher grading.
Well presented externally and chic and funky internally, it offers a range of facilities, including 2 bars, swimming pool, spacious terrace, pool tables, internet terminals, plasma TVs and Wi-Fi.
In a peaceful location for a good night or days sleep, the start of bar street is close by, although the beach is a bit of a walk in the heat.
A single V-shaped building, painted white and grey with slate stonework on the first floor, archways and large windows.
Balconies are reasonably sized. Some have stainless steel railings and others concrete frontages. Views to the rear are of the mountains.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Most rooms
The ultra-modern open plan reception and main bar have a white and lime green colour scheme with matching furnishings, light fittings and decor. Floor to ceiling arched windows keep the area bright and airy. It also has internet terminals, plasma TVs and pool tables. A further seating area with brown leather sofas leads to a spacious terrace.
Gardens are limited to the front of the property, which is separated from the road by a spacious car park. A shaded seating terrace with decking and contemporary outdoor furniture overlooks over the pool and the mountains beyond.
The simple pool bar has further seating that does not interrupt the pool’s sunbathing space. The tiled poolside area is concrete with some grassy parts and the pool has metal steps.
Area Type: Hotel Hermes is located just off Malia’s main road, which runs between the old town and bar street, and 100 metres from the main crossroads, church, taxi rank and bus stop. A selection of bars and restaurants are nearby, with a wider choice on bar street 5 minutes walk away. Some similar sized apartments are in the vicinity, with uncultivated land and mountains at the rear. The beach is a 20 minute walk.
