          Individual guest reviews

          • Couple
            6.6

            Enough spacious

            The room was smelling the cigarette smoke.

          • Older travelers
            4.2

            Not much of anything, our window in the room was boarded up, flies all over the bathroom walls, the bathroom flooded everytime you showered, the breakfast was practucally nothing, it was hot and noisy, and we weren't told till we got there that a fee came with using the air conditioner, and their idea and my idea of a beach being close are two different things. We couldn't sleep for people slamming doors and hearing the lift all night. Didn't find the people at the desk very friendly

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            Very near to the shops and restaurants. Also not too far from the bus stops.Breakfast is good, with a lot of variety.

            Hotel staff could have been more helpful in providing travel tips.

          • Couple
            7.0

            The hotel is very central located, just direct to the main street in Iraklio.

            The wireless is too expensive, but there is wireless for free of the Municipality of Iraklio, and I could use it for free at the hotel.

          • Couple
            5.4

            the most important advantage of this hotel is its location. It is in the city center 10 minutes from the harbor and 20 minutes from the airport.

            very basic services the bathroom could be better, the staff could be more polite

          • Single
            6.6

            Above all i liked the location-perfect for the city of Heraklion

            reception behaviour felt quite "cold"

          • Single
            5.0

            I booked the holiday from the Booked.net and paid 14 euro above the room to have a double bed and bath. There is no room double bed, told me the main reception and no room has no bathroom, yet I paid, I left very early, and my charge and breakfast, which was not ready at 05.30 I left to catch my flight.

          • Single
            7.4

            the staff was helpful and friendly. The location was excellent--convenient to many sites within Heraklion and also to all bus stations, port and airport.

            Bathroom needs updating. Screens on door/window would be helpful. Street noise early in the morning. Door seems to block much of it out but air con is somewhat noisy.

          • Family with children
            3.8

            only its location...

            the room is supposed to be clean. but i found tail in the toilet basin...and there was an unpleasant smell in the room (even if i had the window open all day)

          • Group of friends
            5.4

            Only the location of the hotel is good

            Car parking is a big problem we did not even take our luggages out of the car in front of the hotel and poor breakfast menu and airless saloon

          • Couple
            6.6

            Convenient location for exploring the heart of the city, very close bus statops to the airport (5 min. walk) and Knossos (2 min. walk). Beds didn´t squeak.

            Very small bath room and stupid layout of the bath room (room 116), stuffy and damp smell coming from the bath room. Noise from the street.

          • Couple
            4.6

            The location

            The staff was really unpolite, the fornitures old and ugly.

          • Couple
            7.4

            Kindness of the reception, city center location

            Paid Wi-Fi

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            It is located in real city center. It's just a minute away from number of pubs and coffee shops. Service is polite and rooms are clean. They are one the most beautiful I have ever seen, but will do for a couple days trip to Iraklion.

          • Couple
            7.8

            Location was excellent: close to everything and good value. Staff were helpful.

            Paying 3 eur per hour for wi-fi is a rip-off.
