I should start by saying that this is not our usual type of hotel - it is large and rather bland. We usually prefer to stay somewhere small and charming. That said, there was a lot to recommend this hotel. The location is terrific - it is within walking distance of all the sites you want to see in the...

We spent 14 nights at Megaron and used it as a base to explore Crete. In retrospect it was a long way to the west coast so we should have planned two bases. The hotel is good - nice style, excellent staff (reception, restaurant & cleaning). Reviews frequently refer to the friendly and professional staff and it is well justified....

We only stayed two nights but the hotel was beautiful and the staff was helpful and friendly. It is about 5 min. from the port and right in front of the bus depot, in a busy part of town but great for getting places. The food was great in both restaurants! Would definitely stay there again.

Best things about this hotel are the location when arriving or departing on either bus or ferry. The hotel is right there when you get off the bus and directly across the road from the ferry.
