Kastro Hotel is lovely! Comfortable, cheerful, helpful, and great location. Parking your car free of charge can be a challenge though as the narrow streets around it are crowded! But there are pay car parks around. Quite reasonable.

The location is very near to everything and very quite at the same time. Concerning value for money, the service of the reception was medium, some stuff was reluctant to help, whike other not.Should have slippers in the room, the light for reading in the singe bedroom was disturding powerfull with no choice otherwise.But despite that generally yo relax and...

I stayed in Kastro two years ago, and honestly it was not memorable. However, this time I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel has been redone elegantly and aiming to please travellers. The rooms are comfortable with brand new beds and duvets and options of pillows. The bathroom are well lit (great mirror for makeup) and modern, The only thing I... More

This conveniently located hotel has steep entry steps and should be avoided by anyone handicapped or elderly. The surrounding sidewalks (such as they are) are truly impossible and dangerous by night or in the rain. The rooms are comfortable and pleasant enough. Elevator access available. Our room had no view at all so kept the window shuttered. Missing was an... More

This hotel is billed as 3 stars but there are 4 star hotels which are worse than this delightful place. Best thing about this hotel was the rate (47 euros/ night). As we anticipated a two week stay, the rate mattered. This rate was available during December 2014 (off peak). The room was modern, bright, in a good state of... More

The room was modern and clean. The bed and the pillow were very confortable. The staff was friendly. Good breakfast. The price is very reasonable. It was a bit difficult to find the hotel. Nearby there´s a parking where we can leave the car for 6 € by day.

Just a few blocks from the waterfront and main pedestrian area with all its amenities, the Kastro Hotel is a funky, modern, comfortable and well appointed place to stay in Heraklion. Rooms are clean, decent sized and tidy. Breakfast has a good selection including all the ingredients (and the recipe) for yummy Cretan dakos - tomato, cheese and olive on... More
