4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My recent one night stay here was nice enough. The terrace restaurant is lovely and view of the harbour is beautiful, with friends;y attentive service to boot! Very comfortable bed and nice room. Unfortunately the jacuzzi bathtub didn’t work. Still, I would recommend this hotel for location and service.

We chose the Megaron as the primary base for our 3 week vacation in Crete, August 2016. It was a brilliant choice. Every member of the hotel staff was genuinely friendly, answering our many questions with accuracy and kindness and anticipating our needs before we knew we had them. Modern, well-appointed rooms, delicious food, and a quietly tasteful ambience made... More

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night as we got the late ferry over from Santorini and drove across the Chania the next day. During my research I gathered that Heriklion wasn't really the place to base yourself for a holiday in Crete- hence only having 1 night here. The hotel itself is PLUSH! We were completely wowed...

The only positive thing about this place is the personel. Smiley, friendly and willing to help. The parking nearly does not exist. The breakfast is rather poor, excluding the large variety of sweets. The room is disapointing, very small and once they forgit to clean it, ok it happens but in such expensive resort it shouldn't. Long story story short... More
