The room and the toilet were very old, and for the money asked they should keep the rooms better looking and it should be renewable.The location is ok, it is in the centre of the city and very close to the port.

You get what you pay the people are friendly and politely. It's a basic hotel but still you also don't pay for 3 or 4 stars ... It's really in the centre of heraklion so perfect again ...I stayed her already 6 times...

I stayed here 2 nights so I could see the city of Heraklion and visit Knossos. The hotel is very central just south of the main square. The area around the hotel is noisy at night and my first floor room was not soundproofed at all. I had to use earplugs. My room was small, basic and clean. Staff were... More

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...

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
