Stayed here for 3 nights. Great location as its a few steps from the Venetian Fortress and Port, and 5 minutes from the Lions Square (main markets). Came in from an overnight ferry from Athens at 7am, rooms were not ready - not their fault as all rooms were occupied. Since it was early and I was wearing comfy sleepwear... More

Myself and my lady friend stayed here and it was very enjoyable for the both of us. The best thing is the location which is about 2 minutes walk from the seafront and about 5 minutes walk from the very centre of Heraklion. When we arrived the door was closed and locked and there seemed to be no one around.... More

Stayed one night in the hotel before taking the bus to Rethymno. It was quite a distance from the port of Heraklion and we couldn't spot any signs to the hotel. The hotel has a modern look with new furniture. Hot water was working well, has a small balcony, no fridge and no kettle. We had our own bathroom. Some... More

We stayed in Heraklion for a night before catching a ferry to Santorini. This was a nice spot that was a bit away from the city center (about a 10 minute walk) but wasn't an issue for us. There was also a great local restaurant around the corner with tasty local food fare. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Hotel... More

This is a comfortable and spotlessly clean hotel in an excellent location, handy to the port and city centre. Our room looked as though it had been freshly decorated. Pleasant breakfast in the pretty breakfast room downstairs, all we needed. Very pleasant staff. Could not ask for more.

I stayed in this hotel for a night in Heraklion before moving on to Chania. Great location, nice bed, nice rooms. Breakfast was just a basket of bread with tea and orange juice, but was only €3 so can't really complain!

Convenient location in Heraklion, short walk from the harbour, also walkable down to the bus stop - Heraklion. Inside a narrow alley though, no view. Rooms are basic, clean, renovated. Balconies are tiny and not maintained - not really usable. Bathroom is clean, though small, shower could do with a sliding glass enclosure. Breakfast is at an additional 3Euro -... More

Stayed here after getting off ferry from mainland. Owner polite but not especially chatty. Room clean, with balcony. 30 Euros for one person for a room with shared bathroom with no hot water and no breakfast seemed a bit much compared to what you can get elsewhere in Greece for a similar price. Fairly central though and seemed clean and... More

Friendly, very, very helpful staff and comfortable rooms. En suite bathrooms would make it perfect. Well situated for shopping. Close and far enough from the airport. Mare Cafe is strongly recommended.
