“Great hotel, nice people, great service, very clean, close to everything.”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Great hotel, nice people, great service, very clean, close to everything. The only minus for me was that it's far from the beach and we had to take a bus there, but on the other hand we were close to a lot of bars and restaurants and also to the central bus station and to the beautiful area of the marina and the Venecian fort. I would definitely recommend it for a vacation!

Good location in the centre of Heraklion, very good value for price. I do highly recommend it. The breakfast and the dinner (not included) are of great quality, and the rooms are very comfortable, particularly the bathroom.

We stayed 14 days in this hotel and it's a perfect location to explore heraklion city and surrounding areas and sights. It's unimpressive from the outside, but really nice and modern looking in the inside.

The meals were adjusted to meet the european taste, so we missed the mediterran aspect a little bit, but is was all good.

The cleanliness of the rooms seems to be a reflection of the greece/cretan way of life... It's functional like "Hey, you see, we were here and cleaned your room.", but missing the 5-stars standard: dirt in the corners, some remains of soap and water in the bathroom, dust under the bed,...
The whole 14 days of stay, there was no "cleaning" like vacuum-clean or mop the floor. One can imagine, that after discovering the city and sights you carry-in some "normal" small dirt to the room day-by-day. At last after 4 days you simply don't want to walk on the dirty floor without shoes (for example after showering)...

Very close location to the museum, airport and port. Comfort is very good. The pool on the roof offers a very nice view on the city. Breakfast was perfect. A good hotel to spend one or a few days in heraklion.

Atlantis The Perfect Hotel for a Crete Visit
After being forced to leave the awful Sea Side Hotel, we found the Atlantis, almost by accident.
It was the perfect answer to our awful experience at the Sea Side Hotel.
Every aspect was perfect, the room, restaurant, and breakfast buffet, service. The concierge was phenomenal and took care of our every need.
It is the perfect hotel to be in the heart of the city and walking distance to everything you could possibly need. The night life, shops and people of Heraklion gave us a true flavor of modern Greece.

Room Tip: All rooms are great. They also have a wonderful roof top pool with a 360 degree view of the port and...

Moved to this hotel on a last-minute reservation. We were in Crete for a 3day stay as part of a family vacation. Several good things to note:
1. Location: close to the port. About 15 mins from airport by taxi. Just a block or two from the archaeological museum and the pedestrian shopping zone with all its restaurants and bars.
2. Ambience: Cool, upscale business hotel. Decor in muted tones. Very clean. Calm, quiet.
3. Service: extremely helpful and polite.
4. Room quality: Adequate size and since the hotel is on top of a hill, good views. Comfortable beds, good sized bathroom. As in many Euro hotels, it takes a few minutes after you insert your key into the slot for the a/c to kick in, but it cooled our room down to 72 degrees, which was a miracle in midsummer Crete.
5. Breakfast buffet: Awesome! Good variety of cold meats, eggs, bacon, breads.
Overall a great choice as a base for exploring Crete. They helped us arrange a rental car for a day, so we drove cross-island to the beach at Matala on the Sea of Libya. Nice way to get the feel of the island.

Room Tip: Ask for a water view.
