Location is perfect! Just on the main street of Hersonissos. That means everything you could ever need is close at hand (pubs, bars, banks, car rental, shops and of course the beach, which is just 5 minutes walking from the hotel...). Rooms are very clean and comfortable. We booked a 3 beds room and we experienced no problem fitting all... More

It is a very cosy and clean hotel in the heart of Hersonissos. It is located on the main street within a walking distance to the best shops, bars, restaurants, etc. You need to walk about 5 minutes and all the main beaches of the town are in front of you. In the evening, you will be surprised by the... More

Hotel Melpo is situated in the heart of Chersonissos at the main street.Altough its in the center, you are not in the crowded area where all the bars and clubs are. In the main street are shops, some pubs and restaurants, but most of them close after 23.00 hours. We had a room at the backside of the hotel and... More

I didn't think it was possible, but although we came with no expectations whatsoever, we were extremely disappointed. I am not the kind of traveler that has over-the-top standards, but this hotel was unbearable and simply awful. Upon arrival (we got the rooms early, at about 10 AM), we were introduced to a room with 2 single beds (although we... More

When we arrived at the hotel (12.00am), we got a twin bed room. We had booked and paid for a double bed room; however, the recepcionist said there was none available. After discussing the situation, he offered us to leave the hotel and find another one. Obviously, we took the room and waited for a change, which never happened. During... More

I spent 2 weeks at the melpo hotel recently with 3 friends. Not very friendly staff at all, actually quite rude at times. Hotel advertised itself as suitable for young and lively which was definitely not true. The bar had no entertainment whatsoever, was badly stocked and always empty!
