A very comfortable, reasonably priced hotel. Ideally situated to explore Heraklion. Just a short walk to the centre and museum. Great choice of breakfast items in their rooftop eating area overlooking the harbour. Parking is available centrally and is subsidised by the hotel.

Situated within a 3 minute walk to the centre of town,or to the Port and bus station. Lovely room with an ocean view,looking out on the old Venetion fortifications. Good location for travel by ferry to other Greek Islands,or by bus to destinations across Crete. Extensive buffet breakfast included. Barry Abbotsford,BC

I am a budget traveler who splurged a little on this place, which is maybe why I thought this was just ok. If I had paid about 20€ less, I would have been really happy. The room was kind of cramped, but the bathroom had a nice CLOSED shower. It wasn't terribly convenient. My favorite part was breakfast, which had... More

This hotel is a good value for money. We informed the hotel about our very late check-in (1 am), the night shift knew about everything, our key was ready, so we were in our room in 5 minutes time. We were lucky to have a room with sea-view, so we could have a night and day view of the Venetian... More

Stayed at The Marin Dream Hotel for the night and had a very pleasant stay. Very peaceful nights sleep in a reasonably comfortable bed in a nice room. The breakfast in the Panoramic gazebo was great but the view was out of this world. Great for the bus station(100ms) and the Ferries. Very well worth a visit for an overnighter... More

My wife and I stayed at the Marin Dream both on the night we arrived in Heraklion and on our final evening. The view and accomodations were top notch and the price was great! The food was some of the best that we had during our vacation. Would definitely stay again!

We stayed at Marin Dream for a night, and it was a very very pleasant stay. For once, this hotel has big bathrooms and shower areas (we had encountered small shower areas in the rest of the hotels in Greece :-) ), and the hotel was a 5-star, clearly. It was close to the ferry station, so we could continue... More

The hotel is very nice. The people who work there are excellent, helpful and friendly. Breakfast is good. We had a great view of the harbor. The location is very convenient. Good choice for your stay in Heraklion.

Excellent, basic choice if arriving by ferry and overnighting in the city. We considered taking a taxi from the dock (driver quoted 5 euros) but then we spied the hotel sign atop its building. A bit of a walk, maybe 10 minutes, but was navigable even with rollable luggage. Staff very friendly. Room fine. Get one with a harbor view... More
