One of the best city hotels I've ever visited. Good location, nice view, well renovated, excellent design, extremely comfortable bed, good quality of services and food, a perfect breakfast to start your day. I truly recommend it.

Checkin was pleasant and helpful, the room was extremely comfortable with mini bar. The cleaning staff explained the coffee was complimentary but there was... More

This is a big hotel which is very well located near the centre of town and the archeological museum but in a very quiet street. Because it is a big place there is a very wide range at breakfast and a bar that stays open late. Although obviously the service is not personal in the way of a small hotel,... More

Aquila Atlantis is perfectly located in the middle of the Heraklion's old city, about 5 minutes walk from everything this little-city has to offer, and 10 minutes drive from the airport. We booked a family room and it easily topped our expectations, as it actually was a 2 bedroom suit, very clean and nicely furnished. We found the hotel stuff... More

Rita the concierge gave us a very warm welcome after helping us with our taxi transfers before we even arrived. The front desk staff were all very helpful and accommodating and the decor of the hotel lobby was impressive and unexpected given a lot of the buildings in the area. Breakfast and lunch was also very good. The rooms were... More

The hotel is totally new, the room was very good and so was the breakfast. It was also very well located and had a nice view from the balcony. it´s not cheap, of course, but worth the price. i recommend

Fantastic location close to main bus station and close enough to the main shopping streets of Heraklion. We have stayed here just for one night after our late arrival into Crete, our room was absolutely spotless with all room amenities expected from 5 star hotel. Buffet breakfast offered lot of choices and staff were really helpful. The only reason I... More

I am not complaining about my stay in this hotel. To my mind it is good 4* hotel. With good room size, comfy beds, well designed, centrally located... But when you book 5* hotel with no.3 rating in tripadvisor, you are wating for something "Wow" and it is not "wow", it is only O.K. We stayed here four nights with... More
