There are 2 Castro Hotels in Heraklion, went to the other one first so was expecting a more central location. Room was very small, shower so small hard to move w/o hitting fixtures, but all very clean. Some staff overly-attentive in a smarmy
way, restaurant was very noisy until late at night and noise heard easily in room. Nice pool area. On main road, about 1 km from beach.
I was there in middle of May and place was quiet empty, no children for me that was very important.
Good, cheap connection to Heraklion centre by bus.
Staff absolutely amazing, friendly
Good value for money
This hotel is not a THREE Star hotel. What kind of hotel does not change your linens, or towels and doesn't even provide soap in the bathroom during a two night stay? The room is small and essentially has two beds and no desk or sit down area in
the room. Yes, the price was right but not impressed with this hotel at all. There was free wifi but only in the lobby. The breakfast was 5 euro per person and was not impressive at all. I had to promise my spouse we would not stay here again. Perhaps for a student on limited funds, yes but not grownups. Its a one star at best. The neighborhood, however, is nice to walk along and to visit all the shops and nicer restaurants and that might be the biggest incentive to stay here.
We stayed in this hotel for the second time, before the early flight out of Heraklion. It is only 15 minute drive from the airport, and 5-minute walk from the beach. Rooms are clean, air-conditioned. It has free parking. Restaurant is in in the
hotel, with a nice, moderately priced menu. Staff was helpful. Even though we reserved a room for two, we were given a one-bedroom apartment with a kitchnet for the same price. It was just a very good deal.
As for a mix-up with the other hotel, we too were sent to the wrong one by the service personnel of some resort place where we asked for the directions. The name of tthe place we stayed at is "Castro", the other one is in the center of Heraklion and named "Kastro". To be sure, just take highway 90 from the airport and go till Ammoudara exit. From exit take right, drive half a kilometer/kilometer, and at the light under the bridge make left. Go till the road splits in two and take the right one. After another 2-3 kilometers, on the left, there will be hotel "Castro".
