Stayed for two nights last year. Can't wait to return. Luxury! Upgraded at reception to a beautiful room, massive bed, great location, beautiful pool, lovely staff! We will be back one day, my partner and I had a fantastic stay! Can't recommend highly enough.

This hotel is situated next door to the bus station and overlooks the harbour. It is in the style of a large international business hotel but the service was very friendly and it didn’t have the impersonal feel that those hotels often have. Our room was in the corner with balconies overlooking the harbour, very roomy with a comfortable bed... More

Megaron in Greeks means a big impressive building and this hotel deserves its title. The location is amazing in the heart of Heraklion city and the pedestrian area where life is on. Nice spacious room and good quality of food. Very helpful staff. Prices higher than normal hotels in the city but as I mentioned "Megaron" means ....impression :-)

Upon our trip to Athens, Crete and Santorini, even though all the hotels were wonderful the Megaron in Crete stood out as outstanding. This grand hotel faces the port and we were lucky to get a corner room. The main bedroom had a balcony over looking the sea and the bathroom, had a patio as well that faced the city... More

This hotel does not deliver value for money. Said to be one of the finest in Heraklion, the hotel was really just OK in terms of comfort and breakfast - which is disappointing given the price abs reputation. What probably decreased its appeal in our eyes even more was the fact that we could hear the music playing in the... More

We were greeted at Reception with the welcome news that we had been upgraded to a room with a view of the port. Check-in was swift and friendly and we were taken to our room where we were shown how everything worked. All the staff that we encountered, from housekeeping to the restaurant to the front desk, seemed happy and... More

The rooms are excellent and the beds are super comfortable. The staff were very polite and professional. It costs 15 euros to use the sauna, hot tub or steam bath! Each facility! We picked this hotel to relax in at the end of a 5 week trip and it would have cost 45 euros per person to use all three.... More

Unfortunately, we had only 2 nights to stay in Heraklion, but we were happy we chose this hotel. Our room faced the port and was quite comfortable, with a spacious, modern bathroom and shower. The staff was quite helpful in helping us make the most of our time there, including arranging a tour guide to Knossos Palace on ½ hour’s... More

Absolutely beautiful, luxurious hotel, with the kindest and most helpful people working (and it was wonderful women who manage and care for most of the guest services!). Excellent breakfast every morning with a multitude of choices, whether eggs or cereal or fruit or even dessert! Free wifi was a real plus as well as personal control of temp. And there's... More
