“nice location”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Stayed 2 nights in October. Service was friendly and the location is great. Many restaurants nearby, the main street for tourists and locals minutes away and the sea on your door. Our room was small but neat.

We stayed in this hotel at the beginning and end of our Crete travel (due to our Heraklion based flight schedule)
The staff (We met the hotel owner and his daughter) was very helpful, we had good restaurant recommendations, and very important help on parking our car.
The hotel was very clean and correct for a 3star. Very good price quality ratio.
The breakfast quality was above the Greek average.
Recommended to everyone.

Stayed for 2 days with my wife at the end of a rather rushed Crete visit in mid-October.

Very satisfied overall. Staff were extremely helpful, nice room with ocean view. We had free parking for our rental car (not sure how many vehicles they can accommodate in high season, but this was nice). Good breakfast included in room rate.

Two very minor gripes. One, only a shower, no bathtub... I do prefer a good tub, but whatever.
And they seem to have gotten their bedding sizes a bit mismatched: we ended up with the bottom sheets unraveling from the bed & bunching up at the end of both nights. We laughed this off (not as if we were cold or anything), but it might annoy a compulsive perfectionist!

Since the place was so affordable, we didnt have our hopes set high for this place in downtown heraklion. We ended up absolutely loving it! We a gorgeous waterfront view, easy access to the ferry port, wonderful waterfront restaurants just steps away and great shopping and nightlife nearby! we were only here for one night before catching our ferry the next morning, but wish we had more time! this was a wonderful find!

Room Tip: splurge for the waterfront view, it wasn't much more and it was TOTALLY worth it. yes, you can...

Spent two nights at the Kronos Hotel in October and was very happy with the choice. The breakfast was good, the staff helpful and the room nice and clean. The guy at the reception recommended a restaurant when we asked and it was a good one. We would certainly stay again at Kronos.

We stayed at Kronos hotel for 2 nights. The reception staff was extremely welcoming and helpful in recommending us excursions and beaches outside of Herakion. The location of the hotel is superb, just outside of the ancient port, with a view to the sea. The room and the rest of the hotel is the cleanest we visited in whole of Crete, and the breakfast is full with fresh food with nice variety. Overall this hotel has a great value-for-money and we wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who would like to stay in Heraklion.

We stayed at the Kronos for one night before flying home.It was great to find clean,modern rooms and good showers after a hot drive from the south coast.The welcome was warm and the problem with leaving our hire car for collection was soon sorted out.There is a car park just up the road with reasonable charges but only a small space outside the hotel for unloading .
The general ambience of the hotel is fresh and tasteful and it was excellent value for money.Our room was facing the sea and a busy road but the sound was screened successfully by the double glazing.
Breakfast at 5 euros was good.The coffee and orange juice could have been better but overall it was fine.

Room Tip: seaview with a balcony would be worth it in hot weather if staying for a day or two.
