“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

This is a very good hotel in a brilliant location, 10 minutes from the airport and right in he middle of town. Hotel staff very good and rooms a good size. Plenty of choice for breakfast however fruit juice seemed to be very watery, not a lot of fruit in there.
Pool area good but pool didn't open until 11 am. Towels were provided. We hired a car for 3 days. Parking is at a premium but the hotel will park for you at 9 euros a day.
All in all a good hotel in a great city.

This is a fine hotel that gives you good value for the money. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Execlleent soundproofing. I had a room on the top floor where I could see the sun set behind the mountains. There is a pool on the floor but open only 11 - 7.

Room Tip: Good from top floor or all rooms facing the square

This is an excellent hotel to use as a base when exploring Crete and beyond. We stayed here in early/mid Sept. It's about ten mins from the airport and 5 from the ferry port. The hotel itself is modern, slap bang in the middle of town and with lots of tavernas nearby. Explore the windy streets behind the hotel.
The staff were the usual cheerful Greek people you seem to meet everywhere and were very efficient.
There's a nice bar and pool area on the roof with prices quite reasonable considering the location.
We had lunch there on our second day which was huge and great value.
Would recommend.

Located right next the pedestrian streets this hotel and perhaps 10 mins and 10 euro taxi from airport. We flew in late on Friday and stayed two nights here before travelling.

The rooms are clean, hard beds, and quite modern, however other bits are a little dated. Get a room on the 4th floor for easy access to roof and deep pool. Breakfast buffet a bit basic but for 80 euros a night was okay. Free bike hire.

Been there for 4 night, very friendly staff and nice cleaned rooms. Stayed in the second floor for 3 nights, had a small balcony and it was very quiet. The last night was in a room in the 4 floor and it was a bit noisy at night due to the bar on the roof top. However it was the location that made it. A few minutes walk to the 25th August street and with bus stops right at the door. The bus is 1.5€ to: amoudara beach, Knossos palace, karteros beach among others. Very nice

Room Tip: Don´t stay in the 4th floor

This was an awesome hotel, and really good value! The staff answered my dozens of questions and were super helpful. Loved the pool and the upstairs bar. There are loads of buses and other shops right at the door step. This is very much one of the best locations to be in heraklion.

We spent one night at the Astoria Capsis in Heraklion after arriving on the overnight ferry. It is a very nice hotel--we had a 2 room suite for 1 adult and 3 kids and it was a lot of space for everyone, very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and went out of their way at every turn. The room service was good and not expensive, the breakfast selection was great, and the pool area nice, although the pool was a little small. The hotel is right in the center of town, with busses right outside the door, and an easy walk to restaurants and shops. We found Crete to be more expensive than the mainland though. Be prepared to spend 10 euros for a 1 km. taxi ride from the port! (A taxi from Central Athens to Pireus at rush hour was only 14 euros.)
