We booked the hotel last minute because we had to come to Heraklion for some family matters. The room is so beautifully situated close to town. It’s clean, has modern features, quiet. There is a gym, pool and roof top view. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend this hotel.

This is a great place if you need to stay a night or days. They offer a hi-end system and even a camera view if you have guests or delivery. Everyone is very nice.

The location is ideal, close to the center of the city but in a quiet neighborhood.The room was spacious and very smart designed. With doors isolating the bedroom from the hall and the wc.The bed was comfortable, the morning light was minimum and the building noises were not disturbing.I highly recommended it for a stay in Heraklion. They offer free parking also near the hotel.It was a nice touch the personal greeting card with the Christmas treat. Kudos to the staff who thought of it!

We stayed on the 6th floor for two nights, in a suite with two bedrooms. The appartement is actually cool. Smart design, cool features, well thought about lay-out, combination of materials and a lovely balcony ( and a small one on the backside. The reception is friendly, the swimming pool is cool, small and well maintained. There are some good restaurants in the neighborhood. We loved staying here!
