“IDEAL LOCATION”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

We stayed at The Kronos Hotel in July '12 to catch the ferry to Santorini in the morning. The room was a nice size, with a lovely comfy double bed, & spotlessy clean. The shower was excellent (probably the best I've ever had on my travels to Greece. We had a large corner balcony over looking the old Venetian fort. The old town was a short stroll to the shops, cafe's, bars & tavernas. The breakfast was very nice & the staff were very friendly, the port was a gentle 20 minute walk. Highly recommended & great value for money!!!

I first stayed at the Kronos in May 1979. I have always had fond memories of it's wonderful view of the sea, the Venetian fort and the little fishing Harbour. On return for 2 nights in February 2013 staying in rooms with balcony and sea views, I was not disappointed. The hotel has been fully rebuilt in this time, has as new bathrooms and is very clean; the couple operating the hotel were very helpful and it is in an excellent location for walking to the town, bus station and Harbour and represents good value for money. We did not take the buffet breakfast option but saw that it has all the basics of eggs, toast coffee etc. But in the end it's those balcony views that hold the magic!

Very close to the main street by the sea and close to the city center, the staff was agreeable and the hotel was in general clean and well-attended. The breakfast was nothing special. While we didn't stay there on a high-season we didn't get a very good room. It barely fitted us three and had no particularly good view. The worst part was the bathroom door that was basically just a second shower door with nearly no isolation from the rest of the room. As I can see here from other guests' photos this is not significantly different in other rooms.

What a view from our room!!! This hotel is located on the waterfront of Heraklion and it offers rooms with sea view. Definitely ask for one! It is worth the money! Everything is so close to the hotel: the main shopping road, the marina, the castle, the port... all within walking distance. Recommend it to everyone. The hospitality was excellent!!! Free internet in the room also.

We loved Kronos Hotel, great location, excellent view of the sea from the balcony. Freindly staff. The person at the front desk kept the breakfast open for us later than normal and even made us fresh scrambled eggs. I would highly recommend it to others. Free wifi and a good breakfast for 5 Euros per person. hotel also has a few parking spots if you are renting a car.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the sea for a great view.

This hotel is quite decent.

People at the reception were very helpful.
The rooms were clean.
The breakfast wasn't so great.
The hotel is ideally located, not so far from the ferries, with seaview, very close to the city center.

All in all, a good place to stay in Herkalion.

Room Tip: Get a room with sea view :)

This hotel has great amenities for the rates - terrific value. The service was excellent, felt very welcome and at home for the few days we stayed. Centrally located but on a quieter side street, many terrific restaurants within easy walking distance.
