We arrived at the Kronos hotel for our 7 night stay and were met at reception by Maria and her father. They were worried that our room wasn't ready and soon had tea and coffee with biscuits and cheese pies for us while we waited. We waited all of 10 minutes or so before the room was ready so it was of no incovenience to sit in the seats by the window looking out to sea while being fed and watered!
Our room was the best in the hotel (in my opinion!) We had the top floor corner room with the most fabulous sea view and over to The Koules in the harbour. Room 402. The room and bathroom were kept spotlessly clean every day and the towels and bedding were changed just as often. Other comments on Tripadvisor have mentioned the semi see through bathroom door. This really isn't an issue as it isn't that see through and most people are travelling with a partner. The bed was kingsize and comfortable. We did not experience any road noise during the night. We didn't have breakfast as we are not ones for breakfast.
Maria and her parents were on hand whenever they were needed. It was our 25th Wedding Anniversary during our stay and they recommended and excellent restaurant. We had a fabulous meal that made our day very special. They also recommended a car hire company that did an extremely good deal. We were able to get a car for 4 and a half days for the price of 3. The staff always manage to find a parking space next to the hotel for our car upon our return.
The location of the Kronos Hotel is perfect for wandering into the centre of Heraklion. It is only 50 yards or so from the main, 25th August Street. From here all of the sights are within walking distance. The harbour is the same distance away.
But over and above all of this was an act of pure kindness. Maria ordered a beautiful chocolate cake for us to celebrate our anniversary. The cake was delicious!
I would recommend staying at the Kronos hotel not only for the location, price and comfort, but also for the welcome from all the staff, Maria and her family. They are excellent hosts and made our stay a perfect one.
Many thanks to everyone at the Kronos Hotel!
