“Luxury”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Loved this hotel. True luxury. Beautiful rooms and new modern bathroom with HUGE shower.
Had a lovely 3 course buffet dinner. Would definitely go again. And only a short walk off the ferry up the hill with our suitcases.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

We took the bus number 1 from the Airport to Atlantis to our check-in. It was 9.20 pm. The dinner is served between 7 to 9.30 pm. But they served us a drink and welcomed us to sit and we got an excellent meal.
You get there a wonderful location, a great smile not only from the reception staff, very good breakfast and dinner .
Our room hadn't a balcony and hadn't a view. Not even similar to what you see in the internet
We asked at the reception how to manage with the bathroom vents but we got no helpful answer .
Bottom line: don't let little things influence your general opinion, but do try to receive a room with a view.

Good price and quality offer. The hotel was chosen by national basketball team of Greece and GB. Think that means smth. No hair dryer though you can ask at the reception. Good location. Bit noisy of the airport, but you get used to that and can observe plains on the 6th floor. Could be better room service. Sometimes they were forgetting to take garbage. Shower was great. Dressing-gowns, eco-bag, slippers. Coffee was offered for free - could do it yourself at the room. No balcony furniture - had to take chair and armchair from the room. The bed could be one double instead of two single moved to each other (not very suitable for newly-weds). Local bus no. 6 takes you to the beach (~15 min)

I stayed at the new (totally renovated) Aquila Atlantis Hotel with my wife and I was very satisfied.
When we arrived, a welcome drink was waiting and the polite reception stuff gave us a room at the fourth floor with a very nice view of the Venetian fortress and the harbour.
The lobby is very impressed, like a museum with a very modern marble floor and an amazing bar. You can enjoy the breakfast (full of various Cretan delicious specialties with show cooking corner) either inside the restaurant, or at the patio.
But the luxury does not stop there. The room is very nice decorated with a very comfortable bed, precise controllable air-conditioning, hi-tech TV 42 inches with big variety of channels, free internet connection everywhere, roomy black marble shower and separate toilet.
The hotel is located between harbour and the center of the Heraklion. Only 3-5 min walking distance to Archeological museum, city center, Venetian fortress. In case that you have car, hotel parking area is available.
The exterior lighting is also very impressive!
Definitely the best place to stay in Heraklion!

Room Tip: Harbour view is the best
