Stayed in this hotel as was able to get an excellent online rate. The hotel was of an extremely high standard similar to Hilton Hotels I have stayed in. The breakfast was to die for. The service was also excellent. The beds were fantastic and the bathrooms really impressive. I would definitely stay here again. It was also very central. Book it now if visiting beautiful crete.

Room Tip: As good as it gets. As for a room high up if you can to get a Bette view.

A very good with high quality city hotel. Service and friendliness of staff are on top. Excellent breakfast. Friendly environment. The only drawback was the parking facilities and the only one remote controller available. Maybe it should become more automated.

Wow, rare is the stay where I don't encounter some shortfalls in a hotel- This hotel is the rare find. From attentive friendly front desk, prompt room service and incredible concierge- thanks Rita! Breakfast is first rate and the omelette station is great with a warm and smiling chef. Highly recommend this hotel not for just a clean and quiet room (with incredible view of the Venitian fort)but for also a tremendous value. Close to the musems, restaurants and the bus station is down the block with access to all of Crete. Amazing!

Great central location, excellent staff, fantastic breakfast, modern yet elegant decor! Our 'standard' comfort room was exceptional: very comfortable bed, extremely large walk-in shower, and all the amenities one could wish for (robes, slippers, mini-bar, espresso machine, safe, bathroom toiletries, etc.). Our room looked out to another portion of the hotel and down into the courtyard as opposed to having a city or harbor view, and yes it is possible to hear the occasional airplanes land or take off. Also, if you plan on having a rental car, which we did, I strongly recommend paying for one of the very few parking spots reserved for the hotel. We spent 10-20 minutes each evening searching for a parking spot in the vicinity of the hotel. If you are aware of these issues going in... then you can't go wrong staying at this wonderful hotel! We would definitely stay here again.

We were really surprised about the Atlantis Hotel. We spend our honeymoon in crete and it was the best of 4 hotels we had. Great staff, perfect position, superb breakfast, a bed like sleeping in heaven. We will definitely come back. I never say this before but there was really no thing that we didn´t like.

A great new hotel in the heart of Heraklion. Absolutely perfect service and really friendly, discreet and willing staff. Great breakfast. A huge minimal modern designed lobby area, although it is a bit cool and dark. Nice and comfortable room. The only const in summer period, is the average sleep quality, due to airplane take-offs that happen all night directly frontal to the hotel facade.

Room Tip: Front rooms forehead to airplane take offs during night...
