Prós: Located across from the ferry terminal and nearby to some nice dining. The hotel is really modern and rooms are nicely done. The bed is very comfortable. Great shower and amenities. Breakfast is a buffet with make your own orange juice and option for omelettes to be made to order. Very good breakfast.
Contras: We just passed through Heraklion from Chania to get to Santorini. Did not stay there long but did not seem to be a vacation hotspot. Would prefer to not make my own orange juice.
Prós: Loved the cookies at check in, amazing breakfast, confy bed and ammensties and modern decor. Fluffiest towels, robes and slippers! We only stayed for one night to be nearby the ferry (which we walked to)
Contras: The area didnt seem that safe - tons of grafitti and a few beggars, but We didnt feel threatened in any way.
Prós: Great service, nice room.
Contras: Noisy at times as located in the proximity of the airport. Then again so is almost all of Heraklion and the windows keep out most of the noise. The step up chair provided in front of the bathtub to climb in and use as a shower is a nice touch but I prefer a separate shower without the climbing exercise.
Prós: Walk to city center or the water in less than five minutes. Walked with luggage from the port to the hotel in 15 mins. Great central location. Staff was very helpful. 12 euro cab ride to airport. Breakfast was delicious and filling. Rooms were comfy. Good water pressure.
Contras: That we had to leave.
Prós: Just a block off the main waterfront promenade. Friendly and extremely well located. Beautiful rooms and facilities. Best Breakfast we had on our trip.
Prós: We only stayed at Kronos for one night - but the staff is incredibly nice and helpful. I explained to Maria that we were on our honeymoon and I wanted to make it special for my wife at each place along the way. Even though we had a short time in Iraklio, Maria went out of her way to buy flowers at a shop nearby and provide a bottle of wine as well. Location was perfect as well for us since we had to catch the ferry the next morning.
Prós: The hotel location is on a very nice beach, the staff is amazing!!! Very nice and helpfull!!! The rooms is very clean. There is a very good bus that conect the hotel diractly to city center and airport. No need to spend money on taxi
Contras: All over the hotel there is a very strong smell of smoking. Discasting smell.
A bit far from city center, need to take bus/taxi or be sporty and walk on the beach 4km
Prós: This hotel was very nice. Everything in the room seemed very new and clean. Spacious bathroom with glass doors around the shower. Large balcony. There's a bus stop to the airport right across the street.
Contras: The breakfast wasn't the best, but I appreciated a free breakfast.
It's on a very busy shopping street so it could be pretty loud.
Prós: Really friendly, helpfull staff making you feel like home. Hotel was situated close to the sea with view on the sea and a nice pool situated in a beautiful garden.
Contras: The first night we could not stay in the hotel because other guests had an exident and didn´t check out in time. We were brought to another hotel nearby which was the same price category but totally different standard in cleanliness, hospitality, breakfast.
Prós: The room was big and airy the decor quite nice. The staff were special, there was an incident where other clients had a car crash and could not move, so when we arrive they had arranged to put us up in another hotel for a day. Then they cooked a beautiful Creatan meal with wine as an apology to us. We felt we had received Creatian hospitality.
Contras: Terrible location, substandard rooms at any price
Prós: Very nice and familial hotel! An enthusiastic welcome and disponibility from Dimitri to give advices for vistiting Crete! There are a so convivial atmosphere in the garden during diner prepared by Gergia (the mother). We will just keep good memories!
Contras: not very beautiful area around the hotel
Prós: Both dimitris and his mother, georgia, were very attentive / they offered and have transfer from & to airport / they wellcomed us very well / we ordered dinner one night that was really very good and very tasty(greek cuisine - georgia cooks fantastically) / the map of creta and the tips and orientations they gave were really useful
Prós: The staff, the family atmosphere
Contras: Too little space for meals
Prós: Very friendly staff - relaxed atmosphere. Room was basic but with character, great pool, close to the beach, inexpensive.
Contras: Bathroom was a bit basic, but really ok considering price.
Prós: I liked the staff. The typical greek hospitality. It is rather smaller "family type" hotel. Really friendly atmosphere.
Prós: The location of the hotel is very nice
Contras: Accidentally they had problems with credit cards on the day I paid and asked for cash, which I did not have. However, they managed with the bank later.
Prós: The owners were wonderful. Made you feel like family.
