Very good hotel to stay in Heraklion: modern building, comfortable and spacious room, good breakfast, nice pool. Friendly and helpful staff. Walking distance from main square and pedestrian streets.

Gigantic cockroach found in a suite bathroom
The hotel had a huge cockroach in the room. I chose this hotel as it is the nicest one around the airport and is a five star. I was upgraded to a suite, which was nice of them. But the whole hotel is outdated. The room smelled of faint cigarette and the furniture looked old. But being greeted with a GIANT cockroach in the morning just shocked me and ruined my experience completely. I told the hotel front they obviously had this problem before as he said we take care of bug inspection every month and asked me if I left the window open. I did not. And cockroaches don’t fly in from outdoors they lay eggs and spread. It was found in my bathroom. I have never seen a cockroach in a five star hotel.

A Very Nice Hotel
A very fine hotel in a good location. The staff were especially friendly and helpful. Terrific breakfast! My wife and I enjoyed getting out and walking along the boulevard. The only difficulty we had was one we commonly have with European hotels - inconsistent AC performance.Let the front desk know of your need for AC and they can often control it from their computer systems. We would definitely stay here again.

Excellence in service, condition, location.
Definitely a 5* hotel for service, condition, amenities, breakfast. Would definitely recommend for location walking distance to the port and center as well. Can’t say enough positives about our stay.

Great hotel. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was incredible. Not right in the heart of old town, but an easy enough walk. Ten minute drive out to Knossos. Would definitely stay again!
