Perfect location, on the harbor but very close from downtown. This large hotel offers beautiful rooms with high ceilings, balcony’s and good equipments. Front desk and service in general is extremely friendly, breakfast superb, wifi consistently good. There is a small swimming pool on the roof. The lobby is a bit strange and unwelcoming, but just pass this and you’ll enjoy this comfortable historic hotel. Pricing reasonable for such a place (which claims 5 stars but that we’d better call an excellent 4 stars in international comparison). Definitely a good choice.

Everything was perfect. One of my best hotel stays in my life. Everybody remark the hotel's breakfast, which indeed is outstanding, but there are other things worth mentioning. The top floor pool, though small for sport swimming, is enough for a workout and has an amazing view over the Venetian port. Seagulls overfly you while you rest on the beds next to the pool, making it an unforgettable experience. There is a huge living room on the first floor, exquisitely decorated like a place's library, where you can sit and read a book with soft jazz whispered in the background. During my stay I did that a couple of times for an hour each time, and never anyone else entered the room. The staff is professional, always happy to help, and speak perfect English. I have to remark the quietness of the room. When I first entered and saw it's located just over a noisy central intersection, I thought I wouldn't be able to sleep. Surprisingly, with the balcony door closed, the silence is absolute. The location is also perfect. 5 minutes walk from the center of Heraklion, where all the shopping, restaurants and cafe's are located. At the same time, overseeing the sea and directly over the coast road, it's easy to access and has free and convenient parking.

I'm writing this review very late. We spent two nights here back in the Summer of 2018. Pre-Covid memories. This is a wonderful wonderful Hotel. First the usual gracious, helpful Greek service in this Hotel. People in Greece seem to really love the place they are in. When they make a recommendation it is because they have gone there and enjoyed it themselves. Just my impression. I had found this true everywhere else in Greece but hey...it was great here too. The two restaurants they pointed out to us and booked for us were well worth the trip. Second the spectacular breakfast, maybe the best of my life. Greek Food is wonderful all round (OK I'm a fan of Greece you can see at least what I experienced as a privileged tourist but hey it's a review for other tourists...) but this was a high point...a buffet from Olympus, every kind of honey, berry, nut, grain, bread, yoghurt piled up like Louis XIV's table...honestly it's two years ago and I can't remember it all and I'm a veggie so I didn't eat some of what was on offer...but it was worth staying here just for that. Third a huge room rectangular and spacious with two desks with a wonderful view of the bay, a big wrap around balcony and a TV in the toilet, lovely spacious shower Fourth very well located next to the main thoroughfare but a little set back.

Dear Mark C, It makes us very happy to know that you had a great stay with us and that you liked our luxurious rooms, the unique sea view from our hotel, the convenient location, the breakfast and of course our hard-working staff. But the most important for us is that during these very difficult period, we are all in, after 2 years you have remembered GDM Megaron which means that we have achieved our goal absolutely and we are grateful that you have shared this memory with us. We do hope that you will choose our hotel again on your next Cretan adventure and please let us know when you are coming to thank you for this review in person! Merry Xmas !

In my experience the very best hotel on Crete. Location: overlooking the harbour of Heraklion, and the ancient Venetian shipyards, yet only a short walk to the city centre, and an eight minute cab ride to the airport, with the bus station across the road... The hotel: friendly and efficient reception, parking and valet service, very well laid-out rooms that contained everything they should, and nothing they shouldn't. Service: excellent and very welcoming, form the breakfast room (brilliant breakfast, even in Corona time) downstairs to the poolside terrace on the roof. Like Arnie said: "I'll be back!"

From the first second to the check-out everything was perfect. The hotel is well located to explore the old town or take the speed ferry to Santorini (day trip). What is extraordinary is the professionalism and cordiality of the staff. We would like to thank the entire staff.
