This boutique hotel is just everything you could wish for and definitely worth the value for money ratio. The nice experience starts with the very efficient check in process where I was served with a drink and a delicious cookie!! The hotel's staff are so kind and helpful and it feels like they really would do anything to give the... More

This place is pure luxury - from the greeting with a gourmet cookie to the fantastic room - spacious, good wifi, great bathroom, and I had a nice view over the harbor. The breakfast was also great. Staff couldn't be more helpful or friendly. I was really impressed. You sort of feel like a Greek shipping tycoon here - it's... More

Luxury renovation of an iconic building in Heracklion. Beautiful view over Harbour from room balcony. Perfectly located, short walking distance to great shopping and restaurants. Staff were exemplary from check in to dining, housekeeping and roof top bar. Rooftop pool and bar were fantastic especially at night with the city lights as backdrop. Stayed on an extra couple of days... More

What a great introduction to Crete hospitality. Super friendly staff that are genuinely happy to see you and help wherever you need. Easy to get to by public transportation from the airport; any bus will take you to the main square (up the hill; you'll know when a lot of people get off); the hotel is toward the water about...

Enjoyed staying at this hotel! Check in was very easy and the hotel roof is a must for drinks in the evening. Our room was on the third floor with 2 window doors that opened up to a balcony. Upon arriving in our room there were 2 welcoming drinks on the coffee table. The lush blue velvet drapes along with... More

This hotel is located in the city of Heraklion right in front of the harbor. Parking is available in front of the hotel and is free. We chose it because it is also very close - almost walking distance - to Heraklion port from which we boarded our cruise ship. While not a resort destination, this hotel does deserve its... More

I've just returned from a 12 day trip to the Greek Islands and having stayed at a multitude of hotels during that time, can say with confidence that Megaron is wonderful and worth the price. Very clean, warm and welcoming staff, and the amenities are excellent. It's centrally located and the views of the sea are great! A big plus:... More

Near the port and close to the center of town (10 minute walk) the hotel is convenient. Good bar and restaurant after a long day. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room is average. I would recommend this if you come to Crete by boat

We got upgraded to a junior suite that has a nice patio overlooking the port. The room was cozy. They have a small, functional gym. The rooftop patio/pool area was nice. The location is unbeatable, 5 min walk to old town restaurants/shops, main bus station just right in front of the hotel, and the ferry port about 10 min walk/very... More

We stayed only one night on a crazy busy holiday schedule but totally enjoyed our short stay at GDM Megaron - particularly the breakfast full of local delicacies, fresh juices, homestyle jams/marmalades and bakery products. The hotel is in a lovely historic building, but is beautifully renovated and is very comfortable. rooms are a bit small, but totally fine for... More
