Nice hotel - nothing terribly unpleasant (although was not a fan of the breakfast) but other than that a perfectly fine place to stay. It's location really sells it. Was a bit of a strange practice having to hand in my room key every time I left, made things a bit of a hassle

This hotel is in a good spot in the center of Heraklion. It is 10 minutes walk away from the Heraklion archaeological museum and from a square with many fantastic restuarants in it. The front desk staff can be inattentive at times but when they do answer are very helpful. The wifi here is very good, however the breakfast was...

One good fact is the location of the hotel close to market street and centre. Rooms very basic. Road directly underneath rooms with significant noise. Breakfast was pathetic! Very little choice and what was on offer, was very poor. What does it take to provide fresh bread and good coffe? Thankfully my wife and I stayed just one night on...

Our first impression of the hotel wasn't great since it was a hot sticky day but the lobby doors were wide open to the outside and no a/c running - luckily the a/c in our room worked fine. Experienced problems with WiFi even in the lobby but the person on the desk said his WiFi connection was working fine so...

We were on an organised tour so I am not sure how much the hotel costs. It is in the city centre and was clean. The room was ok. The service was bad and the breakfast average. The WiFi was bad and unusable whilst I was there. We stayed for 3 nights. There is an excellent coffee bar / bar...

The hotel is quite good and the staff is very polite and friendly. The breakfast buffet is good. The room was small and had two major disadvantages. There was no table, not even a small one, so there was nowhere to put a laptop or other writing material. And, second, there was only one socket in the room. If you...

We (my girlfriend and I) recently stayed at the Hotel Olympic for 7 nights, and we enjoyed are stay thoroughly. First of all, the entire hotel is clean and tidy, which immediately made us feel comfortable. The bedroom we had was of adequate size, and had all the amenities we required. We were fortunate enough to be on the 5th...

When reviewing hotels you always need to take into consideration the hotel stars and price along with your experience. So for this 3 star hotel I am giving a 4 star review. First of all it seams that the hotel was recently renovated. Also, the rooms are clean and cozy. The receptionists are helpfull. Additionally, the hotel is centrally located...

Average hotel right in the heart of Heraklion on the Island of Crete. Loved, loved, loved the location. Room was good and it was clean. Breakfast also good. Lobby was nice.

The rooms are comfortable and neat. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only problem was that we had a double room with only one key card. For colleagues staying on a summer school, this was not very handy.
