I booked online for 30 Euros per night, one overnight before catching ferry to Santorini. Booked due to cheapest price online of all Iraklion hotels near the ferry. Within walking distance of ferry and bus station. Right in the center of attractions. Yet noise was minimal inside the hotel and more importantly the room. Room was spacious and comfy. Spotlessly...

A friendly hotel placed smack bang in the centre of Heraklion. Museums, night life, buses and port all within 10 to 15 minutes walk, even the Knosos bus passes by here. Standard cold buffet was ok but we picked an internal room that was tiny and dark, even the toilet was small and the decor looked tired and warn. Very... More

We happened to book a one night stay at this hotel after a late evening ferry from Santorini. When we entered the room, we were shocked to see that the beds were not only single, but were also aligned one on top of the other. Let me explain, imagine two single beds placed parallel to each other, now align one... More

Very clean Hotel. Reception staff willing to help at all times. Breakfast very rich for a 3* Hotel. Location very convenient. We have reccommended it already to friends and definately I will stay there again when visit Heraklion next.

El Greco Hotel is located in the city center of Iraklion. It is very clean place. The breakfast is rich and tasty but a little repetitious. The stuff is very nice, helpful and speaks English. Our room was in very good condition (we have a fridge, air conditioning, own but small bathroom with toilet, TV, etc.).

The only thing that would even remotely justify the price was the location, which is right at the centre of the city. But, that wasn't my priority. Breakfast was alright. Some of the staff were friendly. Considering how tiny and claustrophobic and the room and hall ways were, I wouldn't consider it a good deal at all. The bathroom was... More

The only redeeming feature of this hotel was its location, but I would strongly recommend paying a bit more for a nicer hotel in the same area, in order to be treated like a paying customer and not an unwanted burden. The reception staff were openly hostile towards us throughout our stay, they discriminate against soldiers and turn them away... More

The best place to get a nice and relaxing sleep for multiple day vacation but bathroom is a little small Nice Service and it is in the perfect place on the city at the city's center pretty close to shops and cafes and bars
