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.

The hotel is located close to the centre of the city and also close to the main road to the airport. Although the hotel is old and renovated, it is a decent solution for a short stay, especially if you are in the city for business. Rooms are small and some of them have no view at all. Still, they...

I stayed for one night, whilst traveling for business. The room rate was low, but fare for what I got; that is a cold room without any personality, a crt tv, and 2 single beds with slightly scented sheets. Also a good wifi (free) and.... that's it. I didn't try breakfast...

the hotel is perfectly located exactly in the centre of Heraklio, everything is walking distance. The best rooms are in the front side facing the square, all with balconies but too noisy because of the traffic; the others on the back side are terribles: very small with even a smaller balcony and noisy as well since they are face the...

Location is perfect... at a walking distance you have everything you need... it is clean and the staff is ok... but for the rest everything is so basic... perhaps I had my worst breakfast I ever had in a hotel like this... the poorest and the worse quality in everything from the something that looked like cheese to something that...
