Great location within easy walking distance of the Old Town. Car parking available at the front of the hotel. Room well appointed and a lovely breakfast with a very good selection on offer. Only negatives I have are on the gym facilities- gym doesn’t have aircon or any water provided so take your own water bottle.

Dear Christine H,
Thank you for choosing to stay at the GDM Megaron and for writing this nice review!

We are more than happy that you were satisfied with our convenient location, just a few meters from the city center, as well as our car parking area and the famous Megaron breakfast.

As far as concerns your kind comment about AC to the Gym area with great respect to the environment we consider it would be a great pity having it active 24/7. For that reason, we have an informative signpost in the Gym mentioning that if one wishes to activate the air-condition is kindly requested to call the front office agent, through the internal phone we have outside of the Gym by dialing “9”. The same if one wishes to have a bottle of water apart of the one we provide on a complimentary basis in room.

From the moment of arrival, we are always at our guests' disposal and we will be more than happy to welcome you back in the future!

Best Regards,
The GDM Megaron team

This hotel was simply amazing! From the minute we walked in and were offered tasty treats we knew this place was fantastic. The entire staff was incredibly friendly and made for an awesome stay. At breakfast in the mornings you were greeted with a cheerful smile and a tasty filling breakfast. If you’re looking for a place that can help get you anywhere you want to go and do anything you want to do in Crete I strongly suggest staying here!!!

This hotel was beautiful, from the second you walked in the door you were made feel welcome. The staff are fantastic and very helpful.The rooms and bathroom were lovely. Breakfast had a huge choice all was lovely. The only down side was the food was not always hot and if you wanted tea the water was warm not boiling.I would stay here again.

Where do I begin? The booking process and contact with the hotel is seamless. They kindly arranged a taxi to collect us from the airport. Super friendly driver who insisted on bringing our luggage into the hotel. The hotel had also advised us on cost beforehand. €17. As we walked into the hotel we were struck by the lovely calm atmosphere. The lovely receptionist took exceptional care of us on check in, offering us home made cookies and arranging for our luggage to be taken to our room ... actually it was a junior suite as we had been very kindly upgraded. The rooms are lovely. Huge comfortable bed, sofa, armchairs, Nespresso machine, tv, music system and fabulous shower with Korres toiletries. The turn down service is exceptional.

We dined in the rooftop restaurant. Stunning setting and wonderful, friendly service. A great and totally unpretentious menu which was very reasonably priced too. A great place to sit and watch the boats and planes.

Breakfast .... wow. A warm welcome from the ever smiling Irene. We were astounded by the huge array of delicious delights on offer. Something for everyone.

As we were travelling on to Ios the hotel is perfectly situated for the boats (literally across the road).

We have returned to Megaron for our final night in Greece. Again enjoying the calm atmosphere and a very kind room upgrade.

Megaron is perfectly located for onward travel to other islands and its situation in the old city is ideal to explore the Venetian harbour and cisterns, museums, restaurants, bars and shops.

Thank you for a perfect start and finish to our Greek adventures. We look forward to returning next year.

Dear KadyJA,
Thank you so much for your beautiful and thorough review!

Thank you for your kind compliments you have shared towards the level of service received, our rooms and amenities as well as our hotel’s restaurant. The "5th" indeed offers a unique atmosphere with exquisite view and fine dining.

Thank you also very much for mentioning how convenient is the location of GDM Megaron; within walking distance to shopping district and many historical attractions in Heraklion, bus station to Knossos just next to the hotel and the port to the other Greek islands just 5 minutes on foot. Heraklion city at your fingertips!

We are looking forward to welcome you soon again here at our premises.

Best Regards,
the GDM Megaron team

There was nothing to dislike about this place. This hotel was perfect in many ways. Firstly, it offers free private parking just in front of the hotel. Next, we were greeted by the receptionists who were polite and helpful. Thirdly, what made our stay more delightful was a free upgrade to the VIP room. It was extremely spacious and very well furnished. The beds were so comfortable and pillows just right.

We had dinner at the hotel rooftop restaurant which was beautiful. The food and service was immaculate.

But the best was probably breakfast in the morning. The breakfast spread was unbelievable. One of the best.

Dear Rachel Y,
We can't thank you enough for your praising review!

It gives us great pleasure to know that you were satisfied by our reception team services, our carefully selected breakfast and of course by our well-appointed rooms. Our beds are equipped with mattresses and pillows of a very well-known brand in order to offer a relaxing and restful night’s sleep.

Indeed, the complimentary private parking space with valet service right at the north entrance of the hotel is very convenient and big enough for the needs of our guests.
We hope that we will have the pleasure of offering you another memorable experience in the near future!

Best regards,
The GDM Megaron team
