The hotel has comfortable rooms including a spacious bathroom. We enjoyed the downstairs bar in the evenings but there are also 2 pool areas and a restaurant. The buffet...

This may easily be the best place to stay for a business trip. The hotel is situated at the edge of the old town a less than 10' walk to the innermost center but also far enough for a quick drive to the airport and all that in a very quiet environment. The two swimming pools may be too small...

I visit Heraklion quite often for business reasons. It's my place of choice because of its polite and friendly staff. Quite nice rooms (always had view), comfortable bed and pillows, relatively quiet (sometimes you may hear noises from next door rooms). Great room services, decent late night room service, very rich breakfast with varieties from standard and local choices. Decent...
