I really don't understand the bad reviews. We stayed for whole 10 days and we had zero complains. The rooms were cleaned every day (unlike many 2* hotels), air-conditioned and overall comfortable. The location is great - right in the center of the city. Personel was helpful and nice - even the cleaning lady. The only first world problem we... More

Not excited with the room or the breakfast but the location of it is the best. Recommended for a short stay. The bathroom of standard rooms is very small & not convenient at all.... The bed was ok and room was clean as well.

The hotel isn't that good on it's own. Most of the staff is commited, and the location is good, but atleast the lay out in my room was strange( two beds, placed head to foot) and a mini tv with 4 non working channels. Breakfast is mediocre, like just bread (white n wheat), cookies, cakes, and cereal....

I don't understand all the bad reviews. The room is cozy and adequate. Very close to city center, all the nice restaurants are just around the corner and also archaeological museum is nearby. The room is quite old but still you get what you paid for, the reception is really helpful and polite!

I found the hotel quite easily due to it location in the heart of Heraklion.Reception was helpful and polite, the room and much of the hotel is a little dated but clean and the room was certainly adequate, especially considering the price. Lions Square is a few minutes walk from the entrance with its surroundings of shops and cafe/bars. Recommended

I read some really negative reviews about this hotel, however, I chose to ignore them and book anyway and I am glad I did. The hotel itself is right in the middle of Heraklion within a five minute walk of some very nice restaurants and coffee shops. It is also right in the center of the shopping area with some... More

We picked this hotel because it was among the "cheapest" for Heraklion, but it was still a lot more expensive than all other places we visited in Crete and much less nice. Good location, very close to the city center. The breakfast was not very good and there was not much choice. The room was not in a very good... More

We've been with my boyfriend last May for a night. Toilet and shower so small and room not so well presented. Can be a bit noisy at night but it's good value for money if you want something cheap next to town centre. Breakfast provided but not included to the price. No parking space either. Average experience

First of all this is a 2 star hotel. The price paid for the room was excellent value for money. In the heart of bustling heraklion everything is within walking distance. Comfortable air conditioned rooms. Small but perfectly adequate bathroom. Room was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was fine too. Bed was very comfortable as we're the pillows.
