This hotel is very well located with gorgeous rooms and personnel that go above and beyond to make your stay with them enjoyable. The hotel itself is a nice blend of modern and historic. The rooms are stocked with everything you could need and the breakfast is exceptional. The restaurant is also very good. would return in a heartbeat. I am an extensive traveller and I especially appreciated the genuine kindness of the staff to make sure our stay was the best it could be.

Megaron Hotel is an amazing hotel with a nice view of the fort and port – especially from their roof terrace with pool area and the great restaurant you can enjoy this fantastic view and the sunrise as well as the sunset. It is a 5-star hotel with all comfort you need, and their staff is very friendly and professional (high standard of all services). The breakfast is very tasty with a large selection of international and national dishes and high quality of products. I loved the pool because the view was so nice, and I loved to relax after coming from a walk through the old town which is within walking distance. The rooms are spacious and clean. We had the corner room with sea view which was outstanding. They are taking care of the COVID-19 regulations perfectly. I really felt welcomed here – we stayed 5 nights in this gem of a hotel because from here you can do a lot of trips to the north-east and to the north-west. Thank you for your excellent service!

The hotel is beautiful but the staff are simply above and beyond, stayed in a few five stars in Crete on our trip and the staff here are fantastic. The food and breakfast were very tasty, the grandeur of the hotel put a smile on your face and our junior suite with sea view was stunning. The beds were super comfortable and we loved the high ceilings and the black out shades, had to drag ourselves out of bed after the best sleep. Only stayed for a couple of days travelling around but add this one to the list, great base and the rooftop pool and view is a treat, a luxurious piece of history with every modern amenity. Free parking and the hotel is coping with Covid very well, well done to all the staff we will be back.

Our experience at the Megaron was top notch. The staff was exceptionally friendly, service outstanding, breakfasts truly delicious and the location can not be beat - walking distance from the port and a 5-10 minute walk into the pedestrian shopping streets and lovely seaside restaurants. Did I mention the price? More than fair. Look no farther.
