I could have stayed a week! Luxurious in every way. Beautiful lobby, wonderful staff, great room, quiet, excellent restaurants. Homemade cookies. We only stayed for a night since we had an early flight. This hotel was a great find. Free parking, great location, easy access to the airport.

We stayed our last night in Crete at this hotel. It was magnificent, when we arrived we were upgraded to a VIP room, the staff were very helpful and friendly. In our short stay, we managed to use most of the facilities, the view from the rooftop pool and resturant are amazing. Dinner at the 5th floor resturant was fantastic,... More

This marvelous hotel is truly top-notch in every respect. The location is right in the middle of everything of interest to tourists in Heraklion, and it overlooks the waterfront. The hotel looks brand new. The rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished. Everything works. The rooftop pool has a great view of the waterfront. The breakfast was especially wonderful, and we...

The GDM Megaron is a wonderful hotel experience and we highly recommend staying here for a Heraklion stay. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, while the location allowed us to walk to local restaurants and shopping. The room itself was exceptional. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding too.

Luxury hotel right at the harbor and 5 minutes from the northern entrance to the pedestrian zone. Busses to Knossos leave right in front of the basement floor. Very friendly staff, helpful in all ways. Rooms are renovated, rooftop restaurant and pool. Check the internet for special offers!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Megaron and feel completely happy and rested. The hotel is situated in a peaceful and very beautiful harbour, with eateries, a bus station, and the town and its must-see archaeological museum all a short walk away. From the outside, the hotel is full of old-fashioned character, and on entering we were immediately impressed... More

This hotel is located walking distance from most things in Heraklion. Great view of the water and the rooms are very nice. I was surprised when I walked into the hotel, because the inside décor is very modern while the outside is structured to be older. Our room was large and had everything you could want. It was a short... More

Arriving by ferry from Piraeus in the early light of dawn, one of the first sights you see of Heraklion is the imposing Megaron Hotel, standing guard over the old Venetian port. Architecturally, it's a beautifully proportioned building constructed almost 100 years ago, but there's nothing dated about the quality of service and the facilities on offer here. This is... More
