Overall I would not come back here. Rooms are old balconies are tiny. Close to city centre. Breakfast is not that great either. Staff are not very helpful. Had to ask 3 times for them to put a soft top on the bed as it was so hard the first night I did not even sleep.

This hotel is situated in such a convenient area. We walked about one hundred metres from the bus station after taking the bus from the airport. When we left Hania, again it was just a few metres to the bus station for our ride to Heraklion. The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful. They organised our hike to Samaria... More

Hotel Arkadi is located between the Venezian old port, and the bus station. It is no more than some minutes walking to the beautifull old city. The room is comfortable and clean, breakfast was served very early in the morning so we could start our day hapily. I stayed there at list 3 times on my way to Samaria gorge,... More

Most convenient!! 200 meters from the bus station! Everything is downstairs by the hotel . From bakeries to confectioneries .. Even the main chain stores are around. And down the road by the hotel is the harbor (only 500mtres) location can't expect better. Breakfast included. Loved the fresh orange juice. Clean. And helpful staff. I would definitely choose to stay... More

We stayed for 4 nights at the Arkadi in April 2014. It was one of the friendliest hotels we have stayed at. I was using crutches and they kept a parking space for us right outside the door each day. The location of the hotel is great, right beside the old city. The day and night staff were all very... More

Location is #1. Noisy overlooking the square but very quiet when the patio door is closed. Easy to walk around downtown for the shops and restaurants and sightseeing. Wonderful staff, helpful and courteous. Rooms and hotel are clean. Breakfast buffet is good and plentiful. Two complaints: parking difficult and beds are way too hard and uncomfortable.

We found this hotel to be very much like a UK Travel Lodge or Premier Hotel. Not much in the way of facilities but spotlessly clean and comfortable. We had a room two floors up at the front of the building with a balcony overlooking the 1866 Square and although it is very busy traffic-wise, once the balcony door was... More

Modern, comfortable, unpretentious, superbly situated and with the most pleasant and helpful staff you'll ever find anywhere (plus the best breakfast), this hotel would take a lot of beating. It's handy to everything--especially if you're travelling by public transport as it is only a block and a half from the bus station. We had two brief stays here, on the... More
