I stayed here for one night while I visited crete. The hotel is quite centrally located, being about a 10 minute walk from the main market, 15-20 minute walk from the bus station, and 10 minutes from the harbour. The staff was friendly, and the room was very spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable. There is a rooftop garden... More

I have been here for a very short stay in Heraklion. This small hotel is just nearby the very nice Theotokópoulos Park in the center of the city, with easy connection to the bus. The room was medium spaced, comfortable and seemed clean. Electronic keys, nice reception. Being at the third floor there was no sound from the outside, and... More

Spent a couple of nights here at the start of our trip to Crete. Accommodation was excellent and despite our late arrival we were greeted by a cheerful and helpful night porter. Breakfast was a well presented and tasty buffet. Hotel was central location close to all the shopping and eateries as well as the harbour area. Highly recommended.

Stayed for 3 nights and loved the location being able to walk to the harbour and main square. Lots of music playing when we stayed as there was a festival for the start of summer. We stayed in a room with a balcony and when the door was shut couldn't hear any noise. Room small but had everything we needed.... More

This small hotel has excellent service. They helped me get a rental car for the day, showed me where to get a SIM card for my phone and helped me plan my two days in Heraklion. They spoke excellent English and were very polite. The room was very clean and big. I was very comfortable. Didn't have a great view... More

We stayed at Kastro as a transit before arriving Chania, just based on our experience for a night, here are some thoughts: Pros: 1) Close to the centre of Heraklion (5 min walk), and also to the coastline which have a few nice (and super windy) restaurants 2) Close to the bus stop that takes you to the Knossos (roughly...

We were upgraded to the 5th floor with a jetted tub and luxury shower, two tv's and a sitting room. Such a wonderful surprise and we were happy to relax after a week at a lesser hotel on Santorini. The church was just down the street and the Easter celebrations were easy to get to. The fireworks went well into... More

Very confortable hotel with good price quality ratio. The hotel is located in the city center at 10-minutes walk from the the bus station 15-minutes walk from the harbor of Heraklion. Is very quiet and the people were very friendly.

The Kastro Hotel is an excellent three star hotel in the town centre. Trouble has been taken to modernise the hotel which is a good example of the modest hotels that once peppered the centre of Heraklion. As the town has spruced itself up many of those hotels have gone and there is not the same choice. So one of... More

Comfortable, affordable hotel. Centrally located but quiet. Helpful and friendly staff. Everything important--cafes, restaurants, museums--within walking distance. Good breakfast. Clean, nicely appointed rooms. No criticisms at all.
