Kastro Hotel, Heraklion
Very Good8.0
2 night's stay in Heraklion
We had a good stay at the Kastro hotel recently on our first visit to Heraklion, Crete. We flew in quite late so the 24 hour front desk was helpful. Maria was the front desk person who checked us in, and she was very nice. Our room was clean and well appointed, bed was fresh and comfy, bathroom was clean and there was a safe in the closet (5 euros to use). Wi fi was consistent. Sound-proofing wasn't quite good as we could hear noise from the neighbors and in the halls. Breakfast had a variety of breads and cold cuts, eggs and sausages etc, that was pretty much the same daily but decent in flavor. Overall a good place for a short stay.

Rethymno kriti hotel
Great location. Beach was right in front of the hotel and it was a really nice sandy beach. Hotel was clean but no air conditioning in the hallways but many hotels seem to be like that in Europe. Very sweet and accommodating staff.

An unexpected gem!
This hotel was a true surprise to me. I booked based on the proximity to the airport since I had an early morning flight. I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality and value for the price. The location is perfect, less than a 2 minute walk from the hear of city and many major sights. The wifi in the room was fast and the bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in (including my own at home) in a very long time.
