Really good location, walking distance to the marina and the center of the city, and to the restaurant. Rooms are small but clean. Breakfast is so full of variety and with a great view. Lefteris the receptionist was really pleasant, friendly, polite, and gave us recommendations about the city, how to go to Chania, restaurant and so on. By the elevator they have a table with welcoming drink and desserts, so yummy!!

This hotel is very good and confortable! Near from the bus station, supermarkets and important places The staff is very nice and gentle they help you all they night The lobby is very confortable About the rooms are clean and spacious

I stayed here for one night only and was happy with the room - spacious and clean. Good shower and friendly staff at reception. Location is perfect: close to the main Heraklion harbour bus station and also to the museum.

Excellent location (right next to the marina and close to the city center) and excellent food. Great breakfasts - full assortment of options and amazing dinners. Food was local recipes and all were excellent. Friendly staff as well. Would highly recommend to any visiting Crete.

Kind and helpful staff, really a great experience. Located just a few steps from bus station (Knossos/Chania), a few steps from main port and Archeological Museum; the view is amazing and breakfast superb!!

First, I have to thank the hotel staff, mrs Hrisoula, mr Nontas and mr Kostas for their kindness and precious advice as concerns the places of interest both in Irakleio and around the city. I also have to mention that they helped us find two nice taverns for the Christmas and New year's eve; without their help, it would have been impossible as everywhere it was booked long before. As concerns the location of the hotel, it is one of the best in Irakleio, as it is close to the center, it is very quiet, very clean thanks to the cleaning staff ; the rooms are comfortable and some have an great view on the old Venetian port and the fortress.To say nothing of the abundant, tasteful breakfast and the unforgetable view from the 5th floor on the old Venetian port. Having a cup of coffee in the morning at the top floor is an extraordinary experience. Thanks a lot CORNILIA -COSTAS KLIAFAS 31.12.2017

This hotel is well located in the centre of Heraklion within walking distance to the old fort and waterfront where there are nice places to sit have a drink a bite to eat and just watch all the activity of this busy port. There is no onsite parking but a spot can be arranged at a nearby parking station for a daily fee. Our room (409) was quite small but had a very nice balcony with a view of the fort. The hotel elevator is very small..only fits 3 people at a time. (there were four of us) The breakfast was very good with a large choice of food and a great view of the harbour and fort from the 6th floor restaurant.

Good breakfast in the upper terrace . Clean room but not too big. The location of the Hotel is very good, walking distance of all the important places around this city. Could go again any time. People at the reception are ready to help with information and good advice. Be confident to use them

Friendly personnel, nice room, good breakfast, daily room cleaning service. The view from the restaurant is magnificent. Had a problem with the TV in my room but was fixed immediately. Only syggestion that maybe the restaurant could open earlier to accomodate people who leave early. Would definitely recommend it!

We selected this hotel because of its proximity to the port. It was an easy walk with our luggage from the port to the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised with the room. Although not large, the floors and furniture looked new. There was a small quiet refrigerator. The bathroom had been recently updated and had a very good shower and a real hair dryer. However, the TV was an old model and there was only one english channel (EuroNews). Breakfast was good and we enjoyed the view over the port while eating. We would recommend this hotel.
