Travelers' Choice
In the heart of Heraklion city, Olive Green Hotel stands out with a distinct character. The name consists of two nodal words for the interpretation of its philosophy and personality that lies beyond. The Olive stands as a symbol of power, eternity, tranquility and prosperity. The Olive is embedded in the entity of Crete, through its purity and wildness. On the other side, the color Green represents the ecological and contemporary character of the hotel which implements international sustainability criteria. Olive Green is an intelligent, conscious, eco-friendly hotel, a prototype for citizens and travelers of the world. With modern infrastructures it combines the cutting-edge technology with the glory of Cretan culture while it gives prominence to all these elements that create eternal values. Its Philosophy is inculcated by the logotype which is inspired from the Minoan icons. The spiral, a symbol of birth, continuity and a universal imprint surrounded by olive leaves. Olive Green is a hotel with a very distinctive character of its own. It has cultivated a sui generis style through simplicity and individuality aiming to change the way of living in a city hotel.

We stayed for a week towards the end of the season and couldn't recommend it highly enough. The hotel is situated right in the town centre and so an easy walk to almost everything. The room was large and well appointed; the breakfast and dinner was delicious and portions were very generous; and all the staff were friendly and very helpful. There is also a secure car park to the rear which cost €6 a day, meaning we didn't have to worry about our rented car overnight.

Hotel's Favorite
The hotel is very well located - near restaurants, center of town, shopping, touring...we had a double room and the bath/shower was big, the sink and makeup area sufficient, and beds were comfortable. The hotel is modern and efficient. Breakfast is plentiful and well handled - lots of variety. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

When we went to bed on our first night we couldn't find the Do not Disturb tag to hang on the door. We subsequently discovered it was a button on the wall. We also had a tablet provided so we could use the WiFi. So yes, this is a very modern hotel. Everything else was fine, our room 407 was spacious with a large balcony, the place was kept very clean, and the staff on reception were pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was a bit limited compared with other countries but still enough options. Location is perfect, shopping and loads of restaurants within five minutes walk. Recommended and would happily return.

Convenient location. Nice breakfast buffet. Pleasant staff. Public parking is around the corner at a discounted fee for hotel guests. Close to nice restaurants. Well kept and clean rooms. Neighborhood not so exciting (many old buildings) but still safe.

The Olive Green was a wonderful haven for our group stay for 4 days. Clean and modern, it is conveniently located across a narrow street from a marvelous restaurant, a short block from reasonably priced laundromat and dozens of shops. The service was wonderful, the breakfasts incredible and the rooms fantastic. Would love to stay there again and hope I get the chance to!

We really enjoyed this place. The contemporary rooms are laid out well, and the hotel is in a great location. The staff was great, especially Aphrodite at the front desk who helped us solve a parking problem. And the breakfast was delicious.

Booked for us by our travel agent, this hotel is truly amazing in everyway. Rooms are first class with modern facilities and all staff were exemplary. The hotel's location is perfect being only a few hundred meters from the old port and fort, numerous restaurants and shopping outlets. One of the best hotels we have ever experienced.

First of all, we requested a pickup at the Greek Port. We were first off the Boat on a rainy evening and last to be picked up after 4 international calls to the Hotel. Secondly, the rooms are much smaller than represented. We went into the restaurant for dinner upon arrival and a better dinner could have been had in a US Diner. I had Fish and Chips and my partner, Grilled Curry Chicken without any Curry Sauce. No hair dryer in the room. The only great point we can make is the Reception Desk folks who were incredible. I don't understand why this Hotel has Four Stars. It is clearly a Three Star Hotel. Someone must have paid for that extra Star. We were in Four Hotels while in Greece and this is the only one we would suggest avoiding.

Response from Marketing Karatarakis SA, Υπεύθυνος at Olive Green Hotel
Responded Sep 30, 2022
Dear Boston W, Thank you for choosing Olive Green Hotel for your stay in Heraklion and for your kind reference to our welcoming staff. Although there are a few such cases, we are sorry not to meet our honored guests' expectations. We apologize once again for the inconvenience of the delay in your taxi transfer. Our company is distinguished in its 40 years of hospitality service for its reliability and consistency, and we are also disappointed at times when we cannot control the outcome due to outsourcing collaborations. The radical increase in tourism in our city has left many small companies without the resources to provide the expected high quality services. It pleases us to know that our front office clerks reached the desired result with the least delay and with the refund of your transfer. Our Popular Executive rooms are 22m2 and their layout pattern aims to increase the useful space of the guests. Of course in case our guests want even more space, we are happy to provide the option of our Urban and OG Club rooms which reach up to 33m2. Please note that all our rooms have hair dryers placed in the wardrobe drawer. 626 All day Lounge offers international cuisine with fresh Cretan ingredients. We aim for the best quality and taste. We are inspired by recipes from around the world and provide healthy nutrition and taste. Dear Boston W, we value your experience with us and appreciate your kind feedback. It will be a pleasure to welcome you back and provide a memorable accommodation. Best Regards, Guest Relations Manager

This hotel is relatively new and beautifully designed. The rooms are stunning, the air conditioning works great, and the breakfast was amazing! The design of the shower was a bit odd, but everything worked. We particularly liked the fact that the shower, toilet, and sink were all separate.

We had a brief stay,4 nights. There is so much detail thought of. Really cooling fridge,safe,bath robes,slippers. The room was not big but it was super clean,every day new towels. Modern design. The hotel is conveniently located near the bustle and hustle of the center but it was quiet. Bus stop was 5 min walk. Staff is very polite,special cudos to the housekeeping staff. Breakfast was nice and a good start to the day. We really enjoyed our stay.
