This hotel is perfectly located for exploring the city. it's on a nice square, not too loud. The hotel itself seems to have been renovated recently. rooms are really nice, cool, elegant. I was very happy with my recent stay. The breakfast was very good.

The location is what gives this hotel a four , but if you get disturbed easily pick a room not pointing to the square or simply pick another hotel, room standard is okay, however the breakfast is not much for the world! I enjoy eating breakfast but sorry this hotel didn’t

Hi again ! I just checked online for you about buses . There are busses that leave the airport and actually stop right outside the hotel. You need the bus line "αεροδρομιο-Δημητριου Θερισος " and you get off at "πλατεία κορναρου" . Writing the names in greek so you can have them written down and show a local for help.

There is a taxi stand right outside the hotel so its easy to get a ride for sure. The port is only 5-10 mins away depending on traffic and is about 5 euro. The hotel is very centrally located and there are buses from the centre that go to all places of interest. The hotel reception has a lot of information and they are very helpful! Hope you enjoy your stay!

A quelle distance se situe-t-il du Héraklion archeological museum ?
En effet, le musée est tout proche. L'hôtel est bien situé (au centre) et donc près de tout ce qu'il y a à visiter. Seul petit hic si vous êtes en voiture, trouver une place pour se garer mais l'hôtel en garde qques unes en réserve. Bonséjour

"My room was at the rear of the hotel and was nice & quiet at night for sleeping"
"rooms on the back side are quieter"
"the inner rooms have no good view and are a little bit noisy, cause of the air condition noise."
"the front rooms have a view to the cornarou square"
"Well we took the room that we were given, an internal room so no view from the window. it was large, had a comfortable bed, The TV worked well, and the Bathroom was very clean, maybe newly refurbished, it looked it."
US$46 - US$99 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
