    very good hotel in Heraklion, Crete
    The hotel has a good location, close to walk to the port area, multiple restaurants, main street and tourist attractions, including the Archeological Museum. Also, easy to walk to the ferry terminal and buses leaving for Knossos right behind the hotel. Room was good size (perhaps too many pieces of furniture, looked somewhat clustered), bathroom was good, except for a very deep bathtub in order to reach the shower. A/C and WiFi worked fine, good selection of international TV channels. Breakfast buffet was very good, very good quality and plenty of choices. The staff at the breakfast room were very attentive and helpful. Overall, a very good hotel in Heraklion, would stay again if future travels take us there.

    Wonderful Place to Stay.
    The hotel is definitely wonderful. We got a room upgrade and it was very spacious and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The room, however was pretty dark, since the curtains were very heavy and even when open it still covered a large area of the window (they were actually doors), not as much lighting in the room which would make reading less than ideal and the only plug in the bathroom was across the sink, so pretty far if you need the plug for an electric shaver that needs to be plugged in. Breakfast was delicious, with freshly made omelettes and a large array of cakes and pies. You could also squeeze your own fresh orange juice and service was also wonderful. Location is great. Near the port which is very convenient, but also near the main shopping streets, lots of great restaurant nearby and the concierge gave us great advices on where to eat. I would gladly stay there again and the little negatives I found were not enough to spoil our stay, Just thought I would mention them so that maybe they will get addressed when the hotel does its next renovation.

    Fantastic hotel
    Excellent hotel right at the edge of the old town. The hotel is amazing, very nicely done. I would recommend this for both quick overnight stay as well as a few nights for exploring the area.
