Great hotel, nice people, great service, very clean, close to everything. The only minus for me was that it's far from the beach and we had to take a bus there, but on the other hand we were close to a lot of bars and restaurants and also to the central bus station and to the beautiful area of the...

Good location in the centre of Heraklion, very good value for price. I do highly recommend it. The breakfast and the dinner (not included) are of great quality, and the rooms are very comfortable, particularly the bathroom.

We stayed 14 days in this hotel and it's a perfect location to explore heraklion city and surrounding areas and sights. It's unimpressive from the outside, but really nice and modern looking in the inside. The meals were adjusted to meet the european taste, so we missed the mediterran aspect a little bit, but is was all good. The cleanliness... More

Very close location to the museum, airport and port. Comfort is very good. The pool on the roof offers a very nice view on the city. Breakfast was perfect. A good hotel to spend one or a few days in heraklion.

Atlantis The Perfect Hotel for a Crete Visit After being forced to leave the awful Sea Side Hotel, we found the Atlantis, almost by accident. It was the perfect answer to our awful experience at the Sea Side Hotel. Every aspect was perfect, the room, restaurant, and breakfast buffet, service. The concierge was phenomenal and took care of our every... More

Moved to this hotel on a last-minute reservation. We were in Crete for a 3day stay as part of a family vacation. Several good things to note: 1. Location: close to the port. About 15 mins from airport by taxi. Just a block or two from the archaeological museum and the pedestrian shopping zone with all its restaurants and bars.... More

The Aquila Atlantis is perfectly located right in the center of Heraklion, close to the archeological museum, the historical port , central bus station and busy shopping streets. That's a very good starting point for tours both in the city and all around crete. Breakfast and dinner buffet were satisfying. However, for a 5-star hotel, I would have excepted more... More

When I travel for business purposes, I try to keep a low budget. The quality of your hotel and the comparison with the previous one, make me think to act differently (at least when I am visiting Heraklion in Crete), from now on.

I've stayed in this hotel many times in different rooms and If you are not looking for a resort hotel, and rather stay in the city itself, this hotel is a great choice. It's located in the center of the city and yet it's in a quiet area. The hotel was fully renovated in the past 2 years so it's... More
