Despite a good location, good reviews, kind staff, and modern look of the lobby, we were very disappointed by our bedroom. It was small, with old fashioned furnitures. The bathroom smelt bad (urine). TV was small and old but worked fine. It seems that this was the only hotel where we were not given a bottle of complementary water on... More

My family and I stayed at Marin, 1 night before and 1 after a trip to Xerokampos. The hotel is conveniently located with great views of the harbour. Kostas was super helpful, as we wanted to leave some luggage between stays and he organised that for us. The hotel is basic, but comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good, and the... More

We booked this hotel last minute because it was nearby the Megaron (sold out) where we stayed previously, so we need the area and knew it was convenient to the port for our ferry early the next morning. Unfortunately we did not enjoy this hotel much compared to our other accommodation in Heraklion. It is a very basic 3star hotel... More

We spent 7 nights in the hotel. The hotel is situated really conveniantely in the middle of the town, 5 minutes from everything. There is a pedestrian shopping street and the main square within a 5 minutes walk. The Bus station is approx. 100 metres away as well. The receptionists served us on a rather neutral way, but they have... More

This isn't such a bad hotel for its location, but its not a five star either. The hotel is nice and the staff is very friendly and helpful, breakfast was included in our room rate. The coffee is terrible but there is a Starbucks within a five minute walk to the pedestrian shopping zone. If you are arriving by bus... More

The location of this hotel is perfect for ferry and airport connections as recommended by travellers on here. We stayed on arrival at Heraklion only 10 mins in private transfer from the airport to catch a ferry to Ios and also stayed on return for the night before the flight home. The greeting from Kostas was lovely and the reception... More

We were greeted by Kostas at reception, who was super friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and basic - but then this was what we needed i.e. just somewhere to spend the night before our ferry to Santorini in the morning. So all in all, a very good experience. Good value for money hotel. Thank you Kostas for your... More

The evening male receptionist was very welcoming and of great assistance. We went to our room which was as described but needs updating. The restaurant is adequate for its limited menu. Very close to the main bus station.

We liked this hotel so much we booked one night, stayed 2 on our way into Crete, and another night on our way out. It couldn't be more central for Archeological Museum, market, squares, bars, restaurants and it really does have the view of the old Venetian Harbour and the modern ferry port. We had a side room and a... More
