We stayed at a superior room with sea view in the main building (85.50 euros in January). I had asked for high floor with the view of the fortress. We were very happy with the room. It was quite large with a big balcony and magnificent views.
The location of the hotel is very convenient. Only 5-10 minutes walk from the main bus station. Buses to Knossos also leave from that bus station. The buses to the airport depart from a different stop, but again, within easy walking distance.
Iraklion is a nice city. We liked it better than Chania. This hotel is very close to the town center.
Breakfast was OK. The people at the front desk were courteous. We had lunch at the hotel restaurant and enjoyed it. We also requested a breakfast package due to our early flight, but the contents were not worth the effort.
Overall we were very happy with this hotel. The only problem we had was the noise of the toilets flushing. This happened every other minute during the day. The noise was still there but less at night. I mentioned it while checking out and looks like they are aware of the problem, but there isn't much that can reasonably be done about it. Earplugs?
