This hotel was very basic and clean. The lobby is quite modern, with a little bar/lounge to the side. I found the breakfast quite good, with more variety than some other breakfasts I had while in Greece. It is near a bus stop that will take you to Knossos so I would say fairly central. Like the others have mentioned,... More

Granted Herakleion, Crete is a gritty city, but this hotel seemed generally over-taxed and unengaged to be hoteliers. The bus drop off was awkward, the reception, polite, but slow and simmering with rage it seemed; wi-fi was good, but a slow, individual receipt for every device, and the keys were of that vintage that needed to be dropped off before...

there are rooms with balcony (facing the street) - we had one facing some kind of air shaft/inner yard, and were happy with it, as it was quiet (but of course no view at all). The hotel is conveniently located, 5 min walk to the main plaza and right next to the bus stop to Knossos. Using wifi is a... More

I stayed in this hotel for 6 nights, Not a hotel I would go back to. The air conditioning stopped working during the night when it was 31 degrees outside, one of the members of staff smoked on 3 consecutive evenings in the lobby in the reception area when I could clearly see a no smoking sign right in front...

Olympic Hotel is just near the main shopping street , it has great location. Parking is problem at the city center but you can park near the hotel on the streets. Breakfasts are ok, rooms are clean and comfortable enough.

I brought a group of thirteen to the Hotel Olympic while touring Crete. I needed the help of reception to order taxis to take us to the airport on Sunday 27 April. Irene was on duty that morning and when she realised that the police had closed the streets near the hotel because of a Marathon that was being run... More

I was in Heraklion on a business trip so I stayed for two nights. In the center of the city. No need for car or taxi, we walked around easily. Clean and friendly. We had a little bit of noise because of the cars during the night but as I said for a short visit it is a good choice.

Very good location in the centre of Heraklion. Waking distance from the sea and next to a very popular hawkers market and restaurants. Buffet breakfast was also very good for the price. Taxi stand next to the entrance.
