The Marin Dream Hotel is located in an excellent position approximately five minutes walk from the harbour and main Bus Station A. It is an easy walk of about five - ten minutes into the city centre. All the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Our room, 102, on the first floor was clean and comfortable. The bathroom had a... More

Location is good, close to port, bus station and town. Breakfast was good but could have more fresh fruit options. However, we booked the hotel on the basis of the roof top garden area and were very disappointed to learn the hard way that it was under construction and not accessible during our stay, we were not told this, it...

We were unfortunate to have reserved three nights' accommodation at the Marin Dream Hotel. While it is located close to the harbour and the town centre of Heraklio, the city does not offer enough attractions to justify a stay of such length. After having rented a car and exploring the island's more attractive wine region and opposite shore lines, we're... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in May 2015. One night would have been more than sufficient as the the town of Heraklio is somewhat dismal. The hotel is in a good location, near the waterfront & ferry port, the old city and the museum. Offer free WIFI. Breakfast was fine. Staff were mostly friendly and helpful. We had booked... More

Marin Dream Hotel is a nice place in the center of Heraklion, close to the main street and to the museum. The staff was friendly and very efficient. The room was nice, equipped with a balcony and clean. Wifi is available everywhere. Because of some problems, the access to the breakfast room was not possible but the hotel has immediately... More

We just spent two nights at the Marin Dream and, regrettably, can't recommend it. The location and view are great, but it is run-down and a little janky. The halls are poorly lit with stained carpets, the walls of the room are scuffed and scratched, the cup holder in the bathroom dangles from the wall, the shower curtain is missing... More
