If you are looking for value hotel w a good breakfast that is close to the main tourist attractions, it is hard to beat the hotel. The hotel is not fancy and in need of some updating. But for the price this place is a great value. During our stay we had an issue with the rental car company and... More

This hotel is a great value for the money. It's a short walk from the port, has nice views of the harbor, and is in a very convenient location in general. The staff is very friendly. hospitable, and helpful. Our room was fairly basic, but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great.

The roads around all of Heraklion are ROUGH and we were pretty wigged out by the time we got there; but we were greeted cheerfully. Room had a... More

Stayed in hotel before getting ferry to Islands as it is very close to port. Unfortunately the beds were very firm and hence poor night sleep. The hotel is undergoing refurbishment of its rooftop restaurant and hence breakfast experience was not so good as last year as it is now in the nightclub.

Room and bathroom was large enough, very simple and balcony. Rooftop restaurant for breakfast is out of order, breakfast is serving at next door nightclub. No free parking, area is crowded for free parking, narrow streets. There... More

I stayed for a few nights at the end of June. Receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Location is good- it's easy to get into the old town or down to the port. My room was clean, but looked a bit rundown. I lucked out and got a balcony, off the side of which I could see the Venetian fort... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. There are a number of positive aspects to this hotel, but some of the shortcomings mean it is average at best. On the positive side: It's a good location, the staff are very helpful and friendly, the rooms are reasonably quiet, and clean. They have made reasonable interim arrangements for breakfast having lost the... More
