I can’t say enough good things about this hotel! The staff was as friendly & helpful as any I have stayed in. Everybody had a smile & friendly greeting. They helped with tour suggestions, restaurants, airport transfers, etc. The breakfast was the best of any hotel I’ve stayed at in the world! The selection was so extensive it was vert difficult to decide what to eat! The location is perfect—close to restaurants, museums & shopping. The room was spacious with a large terrace facing the waterfront. This is the place to stay in Heraklion.
We stayed this whole recently for 3 nights on our island hopping tour of Greece. The staff that check you in are very nice and friendly. The free breakfast we had included was amazing! So many wonderful choices and really nice servers! The aesthetics of the inside of the hotel are really nice. Our room had 10 foot ceilings and a nice modern bathroom. Weird to have a tv in it bathroom tho LOL! We had 2 small balconies that just looked out into the alley and other side of the street. We were in a great location to check out the downtown portion and could walk everywhere, the restaurants were wonderful! There is a beautiful rooftop to lounge on with a drink. The pool was way too cold to get into tho. Went to Herbs rooftop garden restaurant, delicious food! We drove to Agios Nikolaios and shopped around the harbour. We drove to a cute little town called Kritsa and then drove to Zeus' cave. Ate at Peskeski, go and check it out, make a reso as the food was amazing!!!! We went walking around Ilios beach in old town Rethymnon, more shopping and lunch All in all this was a nice hotel to stay in and great location! Check it out!!!…
This hotel was very easy to get to if arriving by ferry. Once you disembark just follow the yellow line on the sidewalk labelled for the "City Center." It is less than a 10 minute walk. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated. There were 2 balconies overlooking the water. A little noisy with airplanes and street noise, but fairly quiet with balcony doors closed. The hotel itself was nice with comfy seating areas just outside the room hallway. The breakfast in the morning was good and the staff were very friendly & welcoming.
We stayed here for 3 nights and have nothing but good things to say. The room was very comfortable, the breakfast was unbelievable and we had the best service from all the staff we have ever had at a hotel. Also it was an excellent location with easy walking to all the sights and had a very nice rooftop pool area. Highly recommended.
I returned to this wonderful hotel for a second time this year and stayed for three weeks: absolutely the best way to enjoy Heraklion and the north shore of Crete is from this superb property. The hotel is beautifully maintained, the views over the harbour and the Mediterranean are stunning, the breakfast is lavish, the rooftop restaurant and pool area are excellent, and the entire team is so professional, friendly, and helpful. I even asked if the concierge could help me find a piano studio to prepare for an upcoming contract, and she did. Fantastic service and attention to detail defines the staff at this property. The great location affords close proximity to the city centre and a short bus ride to some of the best beaches on the north shore. I'm looking forward to returning to Megaron next year.…
Brilliant hotel. We had a great room with a good narrow balcony, room good size. Hotel breakfast amazing one of the very best. Roof top pool great. Parking for your hire car. Just literally on the edge of all the restaurants & shops. We were here a week loved it! Staff fab.
We had a magnificent stay at the Megaron! Giving 5 stars because we can't give 6 or more, which Malinda and I would do in a second! Eri, Nastia and the entire staff were helpful, professional and kind. Get the breakfast! Bread and Greek donuts still warm and dozens of options. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
We stayed here because we wanted to be close to the port for our trip over to Santorini. It was so convenient for this but also the staff are wonderful. Reception staff were very welcoming and helpful and the cleaning staff also work very hard. This is a lovely hotel - with a modern feel and our room was lovely with a great view of the port. Not far to walk to the bars and museum. We had a great stay.
We came to Heraklion and this hotel to get over our jet lag before joining a hiking / biking tour that meets at the hotel parking lot. In every interaction with the staff they were immediately available, knowledgeable and eager to help. Hotel is 15 minutes to airport and faces the port (a plus!) however jets landing and taking are loud. We had a large wraparound balcony on the 4th floor overlooking the port, with expansive views of the water and sky as well as the parking lot, cruise ships and ferries. When we opened our terrace door, car and truck noise along with exhaust odors seeped into our room. The hotel restaurant is located on the roof and is a lovely spot with good food and service, however the jet noise was signifiant. The tub shower was very deep and narrow so we would have felt more comfortable had there been a grab bar. The bathroom door scraped against the floor. We did not mention this to the hotel because we didn’t want anyone doing a repair during our short 2-night stay. Breakfast was beautifully displayed and full of delicious Cretan specialties. The hotel info sheet in the room states that it is inadvisable to drink the water. I think this is the case all over Crete. However, no one told me this and I drank a lot of tap water. So far I’m fine. The hotel supplies 1 liter of water per room per day and the receptionist told us we could buy bottled water in many places nearby. I would have liked the hotel to provide as much water as we wanted - I’d be ok with paying. Bed was comfortable. AC worked well. Pool is small but appealing.…
Outstanding hotel in a fantastic location with staff who excel in there work. The breakfast is quite simply incredible with everything home made and fresh. The rooms are immaculate and the WiFi excellent. There is a gym, a small rooftop pool and lifts to the floors. The team at the hotel do everything possible to ensure you have a pleasant stay and feel welcomed. We hope to return (we haven’t actually left yet!)
