    Very good

    Staff were pleasant and helpful. The room was quiet enough to sleep; and the cleaning and bed changing was impeccable.

    The hotel is a bit old and tired, and could use a little refurbishment, but it's just fine for the price. The buffet breakfast was a bit miserly: they would put out about 10 little sausages at one time, and then wait until they were gone before putting out more.

    Very good

    The room is minimal. Although there is tv, there are no stations in English. Internet charges were very high. Close to taxi and port. If you merely need a place to crash, this is it. The staff was very nice.

    5 euro ($7.50usd) to use the internet for one hour.

    Only the fact that it is very central. The general lay-out; ıt had the look of a hotel that used to be good once.

    No internet, rooms shoddy. Fairly run-down, even a bit depressing.

    Fabulous

    Stayed for one night after a late flight before transferring to resort, Friendly efficient service, adequate breakfast. Very central location.

    Very small lifts may be difficult for families with buggies or travellers with mobility difficulties.

    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

    Very good

    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.

    Very good

    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.

    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

    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.
