Accommodation in Plakias: hotels, apartments, studios and rooms are available in Plakias to suit every taste and budget. Also the very popular hostel.

Hotels in Plakias

There are no hotels like on the north coast of Crete, thus big complexes with several hundred rooms, in Plakias. There are a few medium-sized hotels, all other hotels are rather small, family-run businesses.

In addition to a shower and WC, the equipment usually includes a terrace or balcony, air conditioning (possibly for a fee), telephone, television and a refrigerator. WiFi is available almost everywhere.

Breakfast or half board is usually offered as meals. Some hotels in Plakias have a bar or a small pool with loungers and umbrellas.


Studios in Plakias

Studios in Crete are particularly practical for individual travellers. The overnight price is relatively low, the small kitchen is excellent for self-catering and because of the large offer you are flexible in location and time.

My recommendation for holidays in Plakias are the Stella Studios in Plakias.

Stella Studios Plakias

All studios have the following facilities in common: bathroom with shower and toilet, kitchenette with fridge, at least two hotplates, electric kettle, the most important kitchen utensils, crockery, glasses and cutlery for two persons, bedroom with two beds, air conditioning and usually a balcony or terrace. Many studios provide WiFi.

Studios usually have two beds, if you want to rent it alone, you can negotiate the price. Depending on season, location and equipment the prices for two persons are between 30,- and 40,- € per night, if you arrive in spring before the beginning of the season or in late autumn or if you want to stay longer than 14 days, a lower price is negotiable.

Rooms in Plakias

Rooms are very similar to studios, but they have at most a refrigerator and a gas cooker (mostly camping cooker) for a quick cup of coffee in the morning. The offer is not as big as in studios, the prices are slightly lower. The prices range between 25,- and 35,- Euro per night.
