This is a lovely hotel - not too big and it has been tastefully refurbished and beautifully decorated (as can be seen in the various photos on TripAdvisor). The breakfast is basic and everything fresh but not much change from one day to the next - this is only an observation not a complaint. The rooms are comfortable with nice beds, safety deposit box and a small fridge. The bathrooms are a reasonable size with shower (as opposed to a bath), toilet, basin etc & complimentary shampoo/shower gel. The traffic races by on the road so if you like it quieter then don't forget to ask for a room at the back. There is no bar in the hotel itself but the fridge certainly comes in handy. Having read through the reviews it is stated that this hotel is 3 km from Paleochora - I would say that this is to the sign on the outskirts and to the centre it is nearer 4 km - it takes about 40/50 mins to walk depending on your speed and how hot it is. The road is very uneven, no pavements and the traffic zooms along so please take care. If you are walking back from town in the evening when it's dark then do take a torch as there is no lighting and you need to take care due to the potholes. A taxi from he centre to the hotel is 6 euros. Our stay here was the last week in May and first week in June and the beach facilities weren't available until after our departure - when I asked about meals in the evening I was told that there were snacks & souvlaki available from the beach bar when it opens. Despite the mention of a shuttle bus this seemed only to be available for a party of half a dozen twenty somethings, but when we asked about it, it seemed more or less non existent although the manager offered us a lift in his car. The owners of this hotel also have a restaurant in town - see my review of Inochoos, and despite the lack of beach facilities (sunbeds/umbrellas/bar at the time of our stay) the owners were friendly and helpful. If you want to hire a car ask Efteris the owner and he will speak to his contacts at Notos and you get a better deal - he just does the introduction and then hands you over to the office. Olga was particularly helpful. Overall, a lovely stay in Paleochora at the Megim Hotel.

The room is really small, but the balcony is sizable. The owner is thoughtful to install the clothing rack so guests could dry their clothing on the balcony. The hotel is clean and staff is helpful. The rate includes free breakfast, free parking, and umbrellas at the beach. The quality of the breakfast is above average. The disadvantage part is the location, a bit distance from the city, you really need a car to move around. It would be good to provide shuttle service.

On a busy and fast road some 3kms to the West of Paleochora. No stopping bus service and a 5 euro taxi ride. The hotel offered, on its site and booking.com a hotel mini bus to and from town. Never saw that in operation although if the timing suited a lift was available and return if you asked at the owner's restaurant in town. We were greeted with a scowl from the young lady but did get our lift of a more cheerful family member.
Rooms were kept clean, had decent air-con with useful manual controls. Shower area was fine. Hairdryer and bathroom soaps etc. supplied along with nice towels.
Small fridge with ice tray in each room. Wall safe was free. The hotel offered nothing to do in the evenings, no bar or snacks were obviously available in the hotel. There was a beach bar opposite where a torch was useful to get there safely. We did not visit it in the evening to see if it was open. Free sunbeds and umbrellas were available on the long stretch of pebble beach. Very clean sea water. On-site parking under pressure when the hotel was full but there was plenty of space over the road.
Our room had a decent balcony with sea view. Full sun till early afternoon

For the second time I spent holiday time in this hotel. This time I had 13 nights there (I had to spend one - last - night in Chania to be able to reach my early morning flights back home via Athens).
I had no other ideas than relax after stressing work during the winter. For that purpose Megim was perfect. It is still affordable, located almost 4km from village center in very peaceful area near big amount of green houses and numerious fields with chickens, goats and sheeps nearby. This hotel has also own beach restaurant in about 150m though it was not yet in operation in May due to varying weather. There are several beaches that can be reached by foot, for example wonderful sand beaches of Grammeno. However, best beaches are still the Bachia Ammos at the edge of the village and Gialiskari (or "Sandy") beach to east of Paleochora. I cycled to Gialiskari almost every day (8km one direction!) due to windy weather on other beaches and it definitely was worth every drop of sweat!
The hotel has been renovated during the winter and my room had nothing to complain. Decoration is simple but includes hair-dryer, small refrigerator, A/C and old small tv with separate digital receiver. 20 Greek channels are available, no international programs. WiFi worked very well and was fast enough to watch some direct tv-broadcasts from my home country. Simple furniture were new, bathroom clean and small shower corner with new ceramic tiles nothing to complain. Balcony was spacious enough and had sea view with afternoon/evening sun.
The overall feeling of the hotel is cozy. Big boss Eftichis with his family is very helpful and Onela takes good care of cleaning the hotel and arranging breakfast in bottom floor. Breakfast is basic but includes everything normally needed with toasts, ham slices, good coffee/tea, yogurt, crispies, self-made orange juice and fruit. Every now and then also omelettes and small sausages.
You have to have a vehicle to move around if you stay longer in this place. There is no night life in this area nor usable public transportation. Road has no lighting and is not safe after sunset unless you have some kind of flashlight yourself. Taxi or hotel staff can give transportation but I rented a bike immediately after arriving to Paleochora by bus. My daily cycling distances varied from 16 to nearly 30 km. In Paleochora district you can find walking tracks to Elafonisi, Anidri or Sougia. So location is also suitable for sport-minded people in good shape who appreciate peaceful surroundings and relaxing morning-walk after breakfast on the pebble and sandy beaches nearby.

We set this trip up way too late, so our options for hotels were reduced.

Staff are nice there and were helpful.

Location is not good if you want to be in town. The beach is across the street. They have wi-fi in the hotel and we were told wi-fi was at the beach too.

The breakfast was ok, but not like it was the few days before in Chania at El Greco. We had our parents with us so we had two rooms. Both were ok. They were functional but neither had a view.

So, the place works but if you want to be in town, stay in town. If you want a beach, this may be ok, but look around for other lodging and compare.
