The hotel has a lovely position, it's close to the city center and the bus station, the staff is very friendly. The breakfast is delicious in a reastaurant on the top floor with a wonderful view. The hotel needs some after-treatment of the rooms. Everything looked great, but when I check under the bed there were some dusty spots and... More

Picked the Marin Dream because of the photo of its restaurant with 180 degree view of Heraklion harbour and it did not disappoint. Stayed there on 2 separate occasions in July and was really surprised when the standard room we booked (through a discount website) had a big balcony and sea view! The location is superb within a few minutes... More

This hotel is close to the port and the bus station, but otherwise undistinguished. The staff are friendly and welcoming, but they need to add a few more luxuries if they want to reach the standard I think they want to achieve. The breakfast was terrible - pretty much inedible - and I wasn't particularly impressed with the small sachets... More

I spent 2 nights here at the end of a business trip. The hotel is in a good location, but don't trust Google Maps which will try to send you to a random side street 300m away! The hotel has apparently been recently renovated and certainly everything felt modern and clean. I had one of the rooms with a sea... More

When arriving to Marin Dream I was a bit disappointed as the hotel looked dated and our room was very small on the first floor without even a working tv. What I discovered after is how close it was to many local areas and taverns shopping and other areas. Ie lions square and 25 and 28 street etc. The friendly... More

We spent the 1st week of our trip here and found it to be a very pleasant hotel with helpful and friendly staff. Our room had all we needed and a large balcony with table and parasol. The food was to a good standard and we found the breakfasts really nice although I see some other traveller's weren't so keen,... More

Hotel with pleasant Reception area overlooking the harbour and ferry port. 5 minutes walk to Bus Station and Taxis. Convenient location. Comfortable, small room. Breakfast sparse. Poor choice of items. Deep fried pastries. Stale breads. Unappetising. Would not recommend eating here. On the flight path to Airport. Not recommended for more than a couple of nights. Reception staff were very... More

Roomis smallish. Breakfast is the average grecian fare but has great views of the port and fortress. The bus to knossos and beaches only... More
