Fantastic hotel in the middle of the city. Very clean our room was spacious and well appointed. Reception staff extremely helpful would recommend to anyone ! Especially good if you are coming from the ferry five mins in taxi and only ten euros.

We arrived by boat and Chreck in lady was average. She could have been friendlier. We had a 3 person room - double and twin bed. Very nice room. Breakast was good. The area is run down with lot of graffiti. I found this to be true of other Greek cities (Chania and Athens). The bus to Knossos is walking... More

We stayed at the hotel for two nights on our way to Santorini. It's quite close to the central bus stop but imo not walking distance if you're lugging bags. That said, its only 5-7€ taxi ride to the hotel. All the touristy sights and restaurants are walkable from the hotel. The room was clean and did the trick for... More

The hotel is in a great location, right in the middle of everything. It's is very clean and tidy. The room we had was very modern with a huge bed and a small balcony from where we could se the sea. Bathroom and shower were excellent. Also unusually there were plenty of power sockets. Breakfast was excellent, plenty of things... More

Kastro is located near the old harbour of the city. You are also close to the most touristic area of Heraklion, as well as to the best restaurants in the area. The room is pretty big and it is fully equipped. The breakfast is included and it is tasty.

We have been to Greece many times and have stayed all over the mainland as well as on over 20 of the islands, in a wide range of 2 and 3 star hotels, and this hotel is, without doubt, the best Greek hotel we have ever stayed in. The location is very good, as others have stated, but it is... More

easy walking distance to the wonderful Historic and archeological Museums and also to main square where it's easy to catch the bus to Knossos. It is also easy to walk to the port to pick up the ferry, between 20-30 minutes. The breakfast was quite adequate and includes hard boiled eggs. The room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Nothing fancy... More
