What a great place. Everything was first class from room to service to included breakfast. Easy location to do anything. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. Pool was classic. More for adults looking for a nice hotel versus for families looking for a resort.

Hepful desk service, clean but small junior suite, fantastic rooftop breakfast, with great views and fresh food. I wished I had more time to spend in the city, maybe next time. Trick: A Vodafoe store is less than 100 meters away from the hotel, easy to get local sim cards, if needed. Staff is very helpful and speak decent English.

This seemed like the best hotel in the port area of Heraklion and it was! Staff were superb, offering travel advice and remembering us when we returned. I'd definitely return again! The room was lovely, surpassed only when we returned with a 4th floor sea facing, complete with wraparound balcony. Fantastic. Breakfast was divine in a glass encased area overlooking... More

Wonderful location, beautiful hotel. The rooms are very nice and of course very clean. The restaurant is also lovely. Probably the best meal I had the whole trip. It's the perfect location for those coming off the ferry. The hotel is just across the street and walking distance to shopping and many historical attractions in Heraklion

We spent just one night at the GDM Megaron, but were completely delighted with it. It's location was perfect for us- ojust a few minutes walk from the renowned National Archeological Museum with its famous Knossos frescoes, and across the street from the port where we needed to catch the ferry to Santorini. We had a lovely, spacious room with... More

We chose to stay at GDM Megaron Hotel and I'm so pleased that we did. This hotel is absolutely gorgeous, the décor, the position, the views, the comfortable... More

We weren't quite sure what to expect of this hotel when we visited but it was a definite highlight of our trip. Firstly, the room was spacious, modern and relaxing.
