Has a very Ritz feel to it with a sub $150 nightly rate. I was happy to see how large the room was, everything was very clean, close to all major attractions. I would come back in a heart-beat. Highly recommended

Dear Mr. V, thank you for your fantastic review and for recommending our hotel to other travelers. Our spacious rooms are indeed one of our greatest advantages. Even our smallest type of room is bigger than the average European standard but equally elegant and luxurious. We would love to see you again to the GDM Megaron hotel, in order to provide you with an even better holiday experience. Best Regards, the GDM Megaron team

While I wouldn’t rate this place as a FIVE STAR luxury hotel as they claim themselves to be, it is a refreshing option in the old part of the city that certainly comes with a sweet hospitality you can expect from any luxury hotel. But the hefty price tag and mark-ups on all the

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for reviewing our hotel, all reviews are more than welcomed in order us to be able to improve through them. Thank you very much for emphasizing to our breakfast and luxury amenities in room, all very carefully selected, and all included to our room rate. Thank you also for your kind words for our staff, Irini send you her cordial greetings as well as the reception team. On the other hand, I strongly believe while using trip advisor in order to review a place we should all try to be objective. We fully respect all points of views but having additional comments like “stay away” when you have not even obviously tried our restaurant judging it only by price, then it lost its original scope. Please allow me also to inform you that we do not “claim” ourselves as a FIVE-star hotel, but we have received this rating by the Greek authorities. As concerning the “so called” Health club, it has a sauna, a jacuzzi, a massage room and a Turkish bath. The Gym is just next to it. It would be great if you wish to contact me directly in order to discuss further all the above, I will be more than happy receiving your news. Always at your disposal. Kind regards Eri Arvaniti Assistant Manager

Is the hotel on a busy street and therefore rooms are noisy?
There are some traffic around the hotel but the rooms are a couple of floors abow the street so we didn't hear anything from the traffic. I do recommend this hotel :-)

"All the rooms were nice. However, we liked the rooms facing the port."
"Harbor side rooms are the quietest (and also the most expensive)."
"Harbor side rooms provide a wonderful view, but somewhat noisy from street traffic"
"Get a corner room facing the harbor if possible."
