Capsis Astoria Heraklion Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.
