We were not satisfied with this hotel at all. The location to the pier is fine, but the immediate surroundings are not. Our room had an awful odor and the furnishings were quite old. Breakfast was ok, but nothing special. Skip Heraklion and go
right to the beautiful beaches of Crete
This hotel is the standard European economy hotel. The room did have a balcony attached to it but ask for a room with an ocean view. The location was ideal. It is less than 400 meters from the harbor and within 800 meters of the shopping district
with lots of shops and places to eat. The bus station for Knossos is a block away. A taxi ride to the airport takes about 5 minutes and costs 10 euros. It was ideal for a short stay in the middle of the city where we wanted to be.
Friendly, spotlessly clean and comfortable hotel with a stupendous view of the harbour from its sixth-floor dining room. Our bedroom at the front of the hotel also looked onto the harbour and the double glazing meant we weren't disturbed by any
traffic noise. We enjoyed large, self-service breakfasts with plenty of choice, served till 10.00am so no rush. My only suggested improvement is for the 'fruit juice' to be juice rather than squash. Another nice feature is the spacious foyer with its soft sofas, picture books of Crete and free glass of raki. The hotel is perfectly located for exploring Heraklion as well as getting to Knossos, with the bus station only a stone's throw away.
Our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was excellent. All the staff were extremely helpful.
The close location to the port, bus station, and the Archeological Museum were a real plus. We did not need a car.
Hotel Marin Dream is located not far from the ferry port, the bus station (including Knossos buses), and also the Fort, the long sea wall, and the main pedestrian street. And it's not very far from the airport buses. We stayed there on the day we
arrived by ferry in Crete and again the day before we flew back to London after spending 4 days in Hania. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet; the a/c was fine;, and the staff were very helpful. The breakfast buffet on the top floor with harbor and sea views was sumptuous. There must have been at least 30 choices! We also enjoyed the restaurant's special dinner one evening. We appreciated the availability of a public computer. At $87 it cost more than we spent elsewhere in Greece, but our stay there both nights was very pleasant.
The hotel was in a great location.. near everything, including the port. The staff was so helpful... we asked a million questions! The breakfast buffet was not only delicious but had a great view of the port! Would stay here again.
