Highly recommend!!!

Amazing experience at this hotel! From the moment we arrived the staff were welcoming and very helpful. They kindly upgraded us for our honeymoon which we appreciated. Delicious breakfast included. Facilities were good - gym, pool, restaurant, car park. Location is convenient to airport (5-10min drive) and port (walking distance), as well as main tourist attractions and shops. Cannot recommend this hotel and its staff enough! Would definitely stay here again if had the chance

Fantastic hotel in Heraklion

We picked this hotel as it was within walking distance from the ferry port, it is a fantastic hotel, best we stayed in during our holiday in Greece. Reception staff were great in helping us plan our visit to Knossos and the museum and also to rent a car. Breakfast was amazing. The rooftop bar and restaurant was very nice. Couldn't fault the experience at all.

Excellent base for a two week holiday in Crete

Pros: Everything. The staff were excellent, the gym facilities very good and the location allowed me to explore Heraklion and the rest of Crete with ease.
Cons: The lights in the room were a bit dim. I love reading at night and the only difficulty I had was finding enough light to read.
Location: All the museums mentioned in the brochures. Catch a bus along the coast to some of the other cities and definitely take a guided tour of Knosis
The hotel was excellent, the staff warm and very helpful and the location perfect. Breakfast was extraordinarily generous and I had a very comfortable time in the hotel and would definitely visit again. I loved my view of the sea, and it was lovely to walk along the pier and to be able to walk to all the museums with ease. I highly recommend this hotel.
