        The staff was really funny and friendly. It is also good that you have air-condition.

        The breakfast wasn't really what I expected.

        Excellent staff and location

        The shower was extremenly small appoximately 2 feet square.

      • Couple
        7.4

        The location of the hotel is great. It is walking distance from the bus station, the port and the city center. The staff is very nice, friendly and helpful. The reception area is very nicely renovated. We had one breakfast in the hotel and it was nice too. It had a balcony too but our's was facing the road so not worth using.

        The hotel is next to a main road, our room was on the side of the road so we could hear noise of cars/bikes easily. There was some strange noise coming through out the night as if some things are colliding with force. The 2nd night of our stay this got worse and I called the reception for that and they looked at it and the noise was gone. One thing I would like to mention is that the lift is nice/new but it's sound proofing is bad. It makes so much noise when it moves and stops. Our room was next to the elevator and we could easily listen to that noise every time the lift was in use.

        Good wifi, fair breakfast, kind crew.

        Strange voice from air conditioner, small bathroom.

        It is near the port and the center of the city. Near Knossos, in the same street! If you have a car in 10m you arrive to knosos with free park there

        The shower is small but for a few days is not a problem. And in the morning everything is close, is better take the breakfast in the hotel.

        Very friendly staff, good location.

        Not enough place in the room, especially in the bathroom.

      • Group of friends
        8.8

        The staff were very helpful, and it is conveniently located approximately 500m up the street from Iraklio port. 10 Minute walk from the centre of town.

        The beds were a bit firm for my liking.

      • Single

        The staff were very friendly and helpful.

        The tv screen was a bit small, bathroom not as high quality as room.

      • Group of friends
        8.2

        Convenient location to transportation, restaurants and entertainment at a reasonable price. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to stay here in future visits to Heraklion.

      • Couple
        6.6

        Great location if you're just doing a layover and using the port to leave Crete - 5-10 minute walk down the street to the port. Also fairly close to the airport by bus. Common areas are quite nice. Hotel staff is very friendly. Rates are low, breakfast is cheap.

        Room amenities are poor, especially bathroom. Room as smelly - cigarette smoke. Remember, however, this is a budget 2 star hotel, so you really get what you pay for.

      • Single

        Location was very good.Fridge in the room

        The toillete was really not working.I think the whole things was a bit too expensive for things that was offering

        Convenient for the centre of Iraklio, for visiting friends.

        Some minor maintainence problems (shower head).
