Great experience, would come back when in town again.Location is very close to the center with lots of bars, restaurants, shops and market. Rooms are nice and well equipped, comfortable bed and pillows. Very quiet, if windows are closed.Very friendly and helpful staff. An online travelguide with local recommendations is provided by the hotel. Parking garage only a short walk down the street.

Wonderful service staff, spacious and clean hotel rooms with a nespresso machine.The hotel team gave us a free upgrade weeks in advance. They were also very helpful in arranging a taxi to the ferry port, as well as booking tours.

Absolutely stunning apartments centrally located in Heraklion. The rooms were not only spacious and modern but also impeccably clean. The innovative use of smart home technology in the rooms made our stay incredibly convenient. The luxurious soaps provided in the bathrooms added a touch of elegance.One of the standout features of this hotel was their user-friendly app, a true one-stop solution for all our inquiries. Whether we needed dinner recommendations or guidance on navigating between cities, the app had it all covered.However, what truly made this hotel exceptional was its outstanding staff. From the moment we arrived, they made us feel like we were part of their family. Always ready to assist with any questions, they went above and beyond by helping us book bus tickets, arrange cabs, and even printing our ferry boarding passes. Their warm smiles and genuine greetings made each return to the hotel a delightful experience.Overall, our stay at this hotel was beyond memorable, and we can't wait to return to experience their top-notch hospitality once again.
