Perfect location for travellers, handy for the bus station and the port. Wonderful view from the restaurant. Quick and reliable room service.Efficient and pleasant staff. All in all, somewhere you can both relax and work well. I will definitely be back and would recommend it both for tourists and for business trips.

We stayed here for two nights because we wanted to visit the Palace of Knossos and the archeological museum. I was really surprised by how nice this hotel was and how much I enjoyed my visit to Heraklion because of it. A lot of the American guide books are really dismissive of Heraklion, calling it dirty and uninteresting. They are... More

We stayed at this hotel for a short city break during in Heraklion during a lovely stay in Crete in August and the GDM Megaron was a perfect choice. The hotel is beautiful.

I liked everything in this hotel: the size of room, the view from the room and from the swimming pool. The breakfast was just superb and the staff was very professional. Very convenient location. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Excellent service and staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. When their computer didn't work, they immediately offered a laptop from reception to use. Plenty to chose for breakfast. Clean and spacious rooms. Walking distance to the city shops, malls and restaurants, just perfect.

We have stayed there with my sister for 4 days for a yoga retreat organized in Crete. It is a very good business hotel but i can not reccommend it for long holidays. If you want to discover Heraklion for a few days it is a good option. Breakfast and the rooftop are excellent.

This is easily one of the most pleasant hotels I have stayed in, owing to the supreme tastefulness and sense of quality in all the materials used in its restoration. The use of alternating dark wood and light stone renders a timeless sense of both robustness and airiness to the room. Everywhere, design is creative and clever without being overwrung.... More
