My husband and I just spent 7 nights in this hotel, and had a wonderful time. Not only was the room perfectly fine, but the bed was the best "hotel mattress" I've slept on while I've been in Europe (not "rock hard", as in most hotels). The breakfast buffet was bountiful, with both hot and cold foods. The restaurant menu...

An excellent hotel in all respects. Friendly and efficient receptionist and check in. Since we were there off season (January) and not very full, we were upgraded to a spacious mini-suite - all for about 95 euros including taxes! It was spotless and elegant, with a comfortable bed. Breakfast was wonderful, with everything you could want, including many hot dishes,...

We spent three nights at this hotel during a 13 days trip through Creta (5 hotels). It was a faultless experience. The location is excellent and the views from the front rooms over the harbor are superb. The (executive) room was rather on the small side, but was compensated by a large bathroom with own balcony. The beds were comfortable...

This hotel was very central to the sights of Heraklion. Right next to the port/sea. Breakfast was delicious, well looked after by staff. All modern amenities, very clean and glamorous. A+. We were there as a couple, our room had beautiful sea views. The roof top pool was great to relax at.
