    I have stayed at Olympic Hotel a number of times over the past three years. I even hosted a study abroad class at this hotel. In the past I have never had a complaint. I have always been well received. This last stay I was treated in the most unexpected manner. When I arrived to the hotel in the evening the receptionist could not find my booking, this is the first time in three years this has happened to me. I was asked to show proof of my booking by searching for it on my phone. I did, I found the booking on my app, and still it took the hotel receptionist time to find my booking in their system. The accommodation was not what I expected and worst of all, the hotel staff is aware that I travel to Crete for research purposes; I accidentally left two important texts in the room along with a set of my notes and when I called to let them know they asked me to call back after they had checked in with staff to inquire if they had been found. I called back as instructed and the reply was that the texts were not found. I was very saddened and disappointed and I cannot help but suspect foul play. I became aware in the winter when I stayed at Olympic, that one of the staff members is good friends with a woman who runs tours on Crete based on minimally similar research as my own. I cannot help feeling that my treatment this time around had something to do with the friendship between this tour guide and the female managerial staff at the hotel: from my booking not being found, to my card being charged for the room (in the past the hotel has always preferred cash to card and I have paid in cash) to the books I accidentally left behind having gone missing. I will no longer be staying at the Olympic Hotel which is unfortunate because it is a good hotel with a fine breakfast provided, but I will not stand to be treated with such coldness and disrespect when I have been a continuous client over the last three years.

    Breakfast was good and rooms were clean with plenty of hot water. Location was great for access to shopping and dining and market.

    Bed was a bit hard. No iron available.

    2 extra beds were set up in the room as requested. No hassles with this.

    Breakfast could be improved- better quality juices and some fresh fruit offered.
