I was happy with my hotel room. My only complaint was that there was very little parking around the hotel.

Highly recommend
We liked this hotel so much, that we booked 2 nights on our return to Heraklion. The staff are so friendly & helpful. It is also very conveniently located in walking distance of the ferry port, bus station & city centre.

Warm welcome & great service
A lovely welcome. We arrived late but the gentleman in reception was so welcoming. We had a very early start to catch the ferry in the morning. He very kindly arranged for the catering staff to provide coffee, biscuits & cake for us.

Excellent and near port
It was one of the best hotels even if it is rated at 3stars category. the reason of being satisfied about my staying there is that it had a wonderful view of all over the coast line, it was clean and spacy, the breakfast was appropriate and the dinner was of a great variety on the boufet and well cooked foods as meat, salads, desserts and ordef. the only disadvantage is the charged Internet when u are in the room.

Beautiful, clean, near ferry port and McDonald's!!
Amazing!! Beautiful, clean, friendly hotel. Front desk staff were all angels, gave great directions. Importantly, there is NO KETTLE in the room. The front desk provided me with hot water at all hours for hot drinks in my room or in the lobby. Wifi was fine. Cheap, good supermarket around the corner. Near McDonald's, bus station, and ferry port!! Quick walk to town, not bad.

Not non-smoker friendly
The entire hotel smelled like cigarette smoke. The bedding and towels had hairs on them which wasn't from us. The street noise and noise from the rest of the hotel came through the walls very clearly. We were woken up by people in flip flops going down the stairs every morning. The breakfast supplied by the hotel was fairly tasty and had a good variety of foods. The people at the front desk were generally friendly.

6/10 Good

The entrance of the hotel looked very nice and the staff was friendly but the room was very basic which was fine as my husband and I were staying only the 1 night to catch a boat early morning. I hardly slept as it was very noisy, I could hear the lift and then water running, it went on for a while way after 1am!! The room could have been more inviting and needed a little updating. It is a shame as it is convenient for transport links.

Clean and Convenient
This hotel is straight down the street from the port so very convenient. I came in at night and didn't want to spend money on a cab, so it was perfect. Old look and feel in the rooms, but it was clean and had A/C, hot water, wifi, and great new sheets and towels. Breakfast is basic, and they ran out of honey for the yogurt, which is pretty crazy for Greece. Pretty quick walk to the city center.
