This hotel is centrally located and convenient to the market and bus stop. The rooms are on the small side and clean. The bathroom has a real shower, not a hand held. A room facing the street can be a bit noisy. The breakfast is the standard Greek breakfast, copious and delicious with fresh squeezed orange juice. There is free... More

Good location. no private parking. Decent rooms, decent breakfast. 15-20 mn walking to harbour. Nice local restaurants around walking distance. Located right in the local market.Short distance to airport.

The rooms are rather vaguely arranged but the service is brilliant. If you require WiFi on your visit, forget it! Slowest and most useless facility they provide. Overall, the place is central to everything, shops, fountain of lions and quite reasonably priced.

I was here for a school trip. The location was great- super close to the market and port. It was very easy to get around from the hotel. The rooms were clean and there was plenty of room, even for 3 of us. The bathrooms were also very nice, and the breakfasts were good.

This hotel was in a perfect location being a short walk to the harbour, museum ,many other landmarks and amongst many shops and restaurants. I requested a quiet room and given a room at back away from the street noise which was fine. Most nights I slept well but this is a busy hotel so other guests can be noisy.... More

The hotel is located in a central square.This is a great advantage since everything is near you. If you have a car, there's a free parking space (only for 2 cars) in front of the hotel for urgent cases, because parking is very difficult in Iraklion City. If you'll use a GPS be careful. There's no "legal" way to reach... More

The location is good, the hotel is basic but overall fine but the staff are ridiculously unpleasant, unhelpful and just plain rude. They might as well be on holiday with the rest of the guest because they spend half their time chatting to their friends and family in the lobby (during the day & at 11:30 at night!!). The sheets...

For an Autumn, Winter or Spring trip to Central Heraklion the ideal location. Ideal location for shopping, Ideal location for sights and Museums, Ideal location for dining out. Not sure that it would be perfect in High season, it may well be quite hectic on the streets around there. Bus services pass nearby but the roads are one way only... More

We recently stayed at this hotel and found it comfortable, clean and friendly. The reception staff were always helpful and could not do enough for us (as with the bar staff too)!! They totally embraced the fact that we were there for a family wedding and went out of their way to be helpful, offer excellent advice and we found... More
