We chose the Megaron for its strong reviews and short distance from the airport; after about 19 hours of travel time, we wanted to be checked into lodging as quickly as possible. By the time we checked out after six days, we had many more reasons to be glad of our choice. The location offered enthralling views of the port...

Me and my friend stayed one night and we truly found the professionality of a 5 * hotel. Very nice room, excellent breakfast and above all amazing staff. Rooftop pool made the day even nicer. A special mention for Eri from the Reception desk, incredibly helpful in sorting our flights timings and offering maximum assistance. Money well spent. Very recommended.
