This is a 5 star hotel who knows what they are doing and loves what they do. Everything is up to the standard you would expect for a 5 star hotel, but it is done in such a personal way, you feel they enjoy providing the little personal touches, rather than simply having to. This is not a formal or... More

We have lived on Western Crete for 15 years now and this was a return visit after 6 years, although we have often had breakfast at the Megaron before catching the ferry to Santorini. The rooms are good and the beds exceptional by usual Cretan standards. Breakfast a little disappointing, far too many cakes and biscuits and no Gluten free... More

Megaron was the best choice I could have made in the city of Heraklion. It really differs to every other hotel in the city. Service is more than excellent, staff do their best discretely to make sure that you are peacefully and happily accommodated. Breakfast is sufficient, very tasty and of high quality. Rooms are properly cleaned and equipped with... More

The hotel was not full so we were given a larger room - always a good start! We had a small one-off issue during our stay which was turned from a significant negative into a customer relations triumph by the prompt, concerned and generous actions by the receptionist and the assistant manager, Katerina.  We really felt that they both genuinely...

This hotel, in a restored historic building, has been beautifully designed and is impressive as soon as you step inside. We had a 'basic' executive room which was still quite luxurious. It had a large bathroom which had its own TV, a shower over the specially designed bath and with bathrobe and slippers provided. There was a reasonably sized bedroom... More
