Good location if you want to travel for business..bust stop just outside of the hotel..good breakfast also.. The room was clean and quiet..i feel safe all the time.. Extra points, i could check in early in the morning as i had an early flight

Hotel is located in the city center. Bus stop to Knossos is just in front of hotel. Therefore it is very convenient for the activity, Everything is prepared within 10minites walk distance. We enjoyed it very much.

Excellent central location, next door to Archaeological Museum. Just five minutes walk from main square, Efficiently run hotel. Rooms well appointed and clean. Amazing breakfast buffet with lots of fresh produce. Our party stayed here for three nights and rooms were thoroughly serviced daily. Bit of a noise problem at night, but you are in the middle of town. There is a good rooftop pool, but it doesnt open until 11am, so we couldn't use it on our busy schedule.

The room is spacious, the staffs are friendly and the location of the hotel is very good. It is located near the acheological museum, bus stops (where you can take the bus to Knossos Palace), and many restaurants. It is also just 5-10 minute walking distance from the city center. The breakfast buffet is very nice, with good variety of food choices. The cleaniness of the hotel is satisfactory, but there are rooms for improvement.

Hotel was difficult to locate due to inconspicuous signage. Also, it is located on a corner on a busy street, so vehicle unloading was problematic. We arrived very late and left very early, so we really can't give a full review. The hallways felt dated and the room had a slight moldy smell. The room was very spacious and well appointed. They really could stand to add a shower curtain to the shower. Breakfast was complete with nothing lacking.

Capsis Asotria had a nice breakfast, very large variety of foods. Area of hotel was perfect, you could walk to all areas of interest. Rooms were excellent, be careful when selecting your room, you may not be getting a queen size bed. It may be 2 twins pushed together.

Friendly, small but nice room, very price worthy. We had a very early flight but they offered us breakfast, which was really nice. The staff was very helpful and the location is ideal for the city and also the airport.

Paid for a room with furnished balcony, got one instead facing the yard without any balcony. Had chosen the hotel because of the roof pool area for my kids, was told the pool was closed due to "rainy weather" (it was warm and sunny). Cannot recommend this hotel.

Good location for walking to old town and restaurants and coffee shops. Hotel is OK--nothing really stands out but neither did I have any problems. Room was clean, bathroom also and had adequate towels & amenities. Ample storage. Breakfast buffet on a par with other city hotel breakfast buffets.

The hotel has a great location just inside the city walls across the road from the Archeological Museum Not really a four star hotel Rooms are a bit dated and the bathrooms could do with a refurbishment The breakfasts are not bad Don't bother with the buffet dinner Lovely roof terrace with a swimming pool and bar However, the pool is freezing cold!
