        The main reason of choosing this hotel was its close location to the harbour as we had to spend one night in Heraklion before taking our boat to Santorini. It was easy to find and we appreciated a large balcony and a nice harbour view from the breakfast room.

        We found that room and bathroom were small and a bit old-fashioned. WiFi didn't work even in the lobby. Air conditioner could be newer and make less noise at night (no night mode). Also we had to fight with mosquitos in our room. Breakfast could be better and have some fresh orange juice. Generally we found that the price was too high for the quality of the hotel comparing with the other hotels situated nearby.

        Had a couple of minor problems with my room - eg balcony door would not lock, faulty light. All dealt with quickly and well.Very well situated for town, bus and boat services

        Slightly odd that there were no drawers whatsover in the room, but adequate wardrobe. 'Lateral view of sea' bit of an exaggeration!

        Very friendly staff - just as they were last time I stayed. Comfortable, clean room, all facilities worked well. Excellent breakfast.

        The location was excellent, very near the main bus station. The staff were very helpful and friendly.The breakfast room on the rooftop had amazing views and the breakfast was pretty good also. We would stay here again.

        Very close to the port (about 5 minutes walk away) so convenient for an overnight stay in Heraklion if arriving in the evening. Good air conditioned rooms.

        The breakfast was very average by Greek standards but the hotel isn't overly expensive so this is probably to be expected.

        I liked that my room was a good size, it was clean and nicely decorated and I had a double bed, a fidge, good air con, TV and a nice bathroom and balcony and above all it was quiet. The breakfast was better than most breakfasts with a mix of cooked and cold foods and the view from the restaurant was great. The hotel was in a perfect location, 50 meters from the bus station and very close to downtown but located so that it is both private and quiet. The staff especially Nantes were excellent. Wine was good too. I would absolutely recommend this hotel.

        Wireless didn't work in my room but was okay because I could use my laptop in the lobby.

        Location, pool, room was nice and had a balcony.

        Touristy. Many smokers at the pool area, even during breakfast time.

        The hotel's location is great and offers a fantastic view of the city from the top floor. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was good.

        The staff were friendly, but quite slow in checking us in. A pool would have been a plus.

        The location - very close to the port and the ferry terminals. We had a view of the port from our room and that was very nice. The food was also excellent - we had one dinner there and the food was exceptional and reasonably priced. Breakfast was also very good - plenty of choices and nicely served.

        Good advice & service from front desk/ Internet connections

        Room (504) was dismal and depressing.. Cramped, brown with no pictures. It needed to have drawers& some space in the bathroom for toiletries - razor, creams, toothbrush, etc.Also no place for soap and shampoo in the shower. I had no place for a book & reading glasses near the bed. Whoever designed it - did not think of me.

        We were worried trying to find the hotel as Heraklion is a big, dirty city! The hotel is well located and the man at reception was very friendly and helpful. Its close to the pedestrian area and all major sites and shopping. The view from the roof garden for breakfast is beautiful and the breakfast was amazing! Best we had in Greece!!

        The shower was tiny!

        The hotel staffs are very nice and helpful. I may experience the city with a short period of time. They help the In room WiFi by giving me a wireless router just for my iPad. The matress is very good. The balcony is able to witness the fortres. Moreover, I may watch the sunrise and sunset at bed.

        Close to ferry port and tourist areas, good value, young lady at front desk very helpful.

        Busy area but can't expect anything else with its good location, back of hotel quieter at night but without the harbour view.
