Capsis Astoria Heraklion Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Reception staff were very helpful and nice, the food at the rooftop pool was fresh and delicious . Cleaning people came daily but never changed sheets and never swept or moped the floors. Hotel staff though gave us a free upgrade of a room with a nice view

Very helpful staff who are efficient and knowledgeable. Great breakfasts and roof-top snack bar!

The staff is amazing and very helpful and informative.. they all went above and beyond. The breakfast was very nice.

Nice hotel with a few buts: they do not have free shuttle, the executive and junior suites price is per 1 person, one has to pay 30 euroes per every additional guest, and the hotel's only one computer is rarely available as it is given for conferences use.

We chose Capsis on a whim as we wanted a 4-star stay after a long summer working. There were several disappointing surprises: 1) powdered eggs used at the supposedly excellent breakfast buffet 2) a pool on the roof full of either locals and/or hotel staff, some making out the entire time 3) a broken fridge that reception said would be attended to (it was looked at but not fixed) 4) a room that remained uncleaned over a 2-day stay 5) staff that wasn't overtly friendly as you would expect at a 4-star All in all, typical of hotels in Greece when you pay 50 a night, not the 100 we were charged.

Stayed here for a night. The hotel is right in the middle of the city and near a lot of restaurants and cafes which was really nice. The room was nice, clean, and comfortable. Would recommend if you're going to stay in Iraklio for any amount of time.
