We spent a week staying in this hotel at the beginning of February. Our room which overlooked the harbour was comfortable, clean and well appointed. The staff were particularly helpful. The breakfasts were good and we had a couple of nice lunches but not an evening meal. It's conveniently placed for Knossos and there was space for our hire car.... More

Magnificent harbor view, top quality rooms, excellent service by very kind people, 100% Mediterranean breakfast and super equipped gym - a place that deserves its price - just one request: ask smokers not to smoke inside the rooms or give them a separate floor

Stayed for a couple of nights on business and took the opportunity to visit Knossos and the archeological museum. The rooms are spacious with a top notch finish. The restaurant is good, particularly breakfast in the morning. The staff are friendly and helpful. Great location at the port. Ask for a room with a view of the old harbor.

The location is great, the room had a great view over the port and the hotel is very nice. I called one day before to ask the best way to get there, the lady on the phone recommended me to take a privat taxi from the port. When picked up I found out the hotel was ca. 300Mts from the... More

Stayed for two nights, we arrived at night from Santorini by ferry. It is walking distance from the port station. At the reception, we were upgraded to a beautiful port view room with an AMAZING bathroom! It had TV!! Nice walking path to the city centre with nightlife, restaurants and shops. In front of the hotel there is a bus... More

Unless you are prepared to dish out a couple of hundred euros additionally (to get a port facing, rather than a city facing room), be prepared to listen to loud and obnoxious Diamonds and Pearls drunks and patrons (your friendly local sleaze joint, located directly across the street out back...). This strip club plays its music (imagine a techno-pop-balkan turbo... More

Positives - excellent customer service (especially at front desk), generously appointed rooms, central location Negatives - room floor was filthy under bed (had to retrieve dropped keys and was disgusted by what I saw/felt), a thin top mattress on top of two single bed frames cannot be called a king/queen bed (uncomfortable and ever widening gap in middle of sleeping...

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 :-)
