Great hotel, great location.
Hotel down the street from Archeological museum. Also across the street from museum is the bus 2 to Knossos Palace. The hotel is modern and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room and toilet were very clean, bed comfortable and quiet. The shower had super powerful stream, both hand held and rain shower. The breakfast was a buffet and you put on disposable gloves before going to buffet. Good food, lots of choices with juice and coffee. The thing strange about our room was no door to glass enclosed shower, but door to toilet. So if there with friends or kids it may be awkward. There may be different arrangements in other rooms. We ordered room servive. A huge club sandwich, fries; could only eat half A fresh fruit plate for €6. Lots of variety. We could not finish that either. Had coffee maker, Krups. With good coffee. Mini fridge. 2 bottles of water were free, rest was not. Choices of candy, chips, beeres, soft drinks. Menu had very reasonable prices. Bar was open also when we got back from museum at 3:30. We would stay here again.

The staff and cleanliness was great. Check in was super easy as well as check out. I was told upon check in that everyday I had a €10 credit for drinks /food. On two different days I had a coffee. Upon checking out I was told that credit was only for the dining room which when checking in I was told I could use it at the bar. Needless to say I was disappointed when I was checking out that I was charged not only for my coffee from the bar but also for a coke during dinner.

4/10 Fair

Not a 5 star hotel
Disappointing but worth the money. First of all this is not a 5* hotel. Beds very comfortable though and we got upgraded, as VIP gold member so that was nice. The amenities in the room are limited (only shower gel, no conditioner or body lotion). Only 2 towels per guest (one large one medium, no small hand towels). We had to request a tea boiler and iron, which is usually already in room. Fitness center was closed even at 6pm. Was not made aware of that upon reservation or checkin. The pool was much smaller than looks in pictures, there was no pool attendant and couldn’t find the pool towels. I you actually have to request them at the Spa, there was no indication for it, i had to ask the gentlemen that brought some food by the pool. Windows are thin and not sound proof, could hear all the street noise. The worst part was the 10€ Food Voucher i was given at checkin. I was not told any specific conditions to use it. I ordered in room appetizers that totaled 7,5€, made sure I checked with the person on the phone that i could use it on it and they approved, checked again upon delivery and they confirmed again. Upon checkout, the reception first took the voucher and told me i was all set, and then as I was waiting in the lobby came back to tell me I actually had to pay, and that it was only valid on 15euros minimum purchases. I told then repeatedly in good faith i had not been made aware of these specific conditions, but they ignored it. Not guest orie
