Been there on a business trip, late October. And I wish I had more nights! "Kastro" is perfectly posistioned: 3min. walk from the main square ("Liontaria"), 3min walk to the sea ("Koules"). My room was newly refurbished (as all the hotel rooms), very modern, with great taste and all the necessities in place: a nice surprise at this price! Very clean, roomy, quiet, powerful wi-fi, a room to cheer you up. Great service with a true smile! And in a price that, after the experience, was really a bargain! One of the best choices, if you are looking for a city hotel in the very heart of Heraklion. One thing is for sure: guys, you've got a client!

Hotel staff were very helpful and fresh juice were provided for buffet breakfast. Plenty of good restaurants nearby. We took taxi from Heraklion ( Nikos Kazantzakis Airport ) HER to hotel €15. Hotel staff arranged taxi for us to the ferry terminal €6. Hotel external works in Sep 2019.

What a find. Our room was large, comfortable with plenty of storage space and an excellent shower room. It was well positioned to explore the city on foot and see all the attractions. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. It was also very good value for money.

I enjoyed my time at the Kastro. It has been redone, and the rooms are small but well thought out and comfortable. Good showers, bedding, mattress, and air conditioning - all essential for summers in Greece! Breakfast was of good quality, not a huge selection but the items there were all fresh and delicious.

Location is excellent - a few minutes walk from most things you'll want to see and from lots of nice restaurants. Bedrooms are nice, excellent breakfast, nice roof terrace, good wifi and helpful staff.

For this price this is an amazing hotel right in the center of the city. The room is small, but clean and nice. The big and comfortable shower. Tasty breakfast, nice staff and cool terrace on the top. За эту цену просто чудо. Чисто, хороший душ, прекрасный персонал, вкусные завтраки, милая терраса наверху. Никаких претензий, разве что номер маленький совсем.

The Kastro Hotel is situated in the centre of Heraklion, close to the main commercial street and the harbour. The rooms are decent in size, very clean, with smart TV, Wi-Fi, a comfortable bed, large enough bathroom with shower, a wardrobe, a desk, coffee machine etc. Breakfast was good and fresh! Very nice personnel and daily cleaning. Overall, I would come back here any time.

The room is spacious,very clean, with all you need.The breakfast was diversified for all tastes.It is a terrace where you can admire panorama.All persons from hotel were friendly and helpful You can choose to make the masage with Maria,very kind person. Opposite hotel you can find Taverna HAGIATI, where you can taste cold beer and very good dishes.

The friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast, clean and comfortable rooms are some of the endearing features. Close to all you need. Hagiati restaurant across from the hotel. Other restaurants close by and at the top of Theotokopoulou street is a park and also in the area of shopping and close to the museums.

Stayed here for a short break. This hotel is really handy for the shops and sights of Heraklion. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff very helpful. There is a good choice for breakfast and a lovely little bar opposite if you don't want to go too far for a meal in the evening. I would definitely stay there again.
