The bar downstairs no longer exists and when I returned after an evening meal out it would have been nice to relax with a drink.

Get a room with a view of the Fortezza and balcony if you can, but even if unavailable, the hotel is wonderful. Parking garage, port, and grocery store very nearby. Pedestrian area lined with restaurants, coffee shops, and stores are nearby, too. Highly convenient hotel that is managed with care!

Superb Customer Service
Customer service was superb. View from our room was great. Location is walkable to everything Heraklion old town has to offer. Beds were comfortable and room was clean. Would highly recommend.

Amazing staff. Amazing service. But it was not quiet. Banging coming from somewhere throughout the night. And people outside were loud even with windows closed. This was in December. But for one night and the price, would recommend.

Нормальный отель
Неплохой отель недалеко от центра. Приветливый персонал, помог быстро решить несколько вопросов. Завтраки вполне, если вы тут только на несколько дней. Шикарный вид из ресторана. Ванная комната нуждается в реновации, сантехника местами изношена очень. Самолеты очень слышно, но это у всех в этой локации так. Плохая шумоизоляция между номерами.

Basic hotel for overnight stay. Staff upon arrival was kind of rude and not helpful. To have to do a self check in on our phone was quite inconvenient. He never offered help with bags nor directed us to our room. The hotel had little accommodations you even had to pay for coffee
