What an amazing hotel! If you're staying in Crete and have the opportunity to use their very impressive bus system (takes you anywhere on the island for very cheap rates), then the Magaron should be your hotel in Heraklion, It's located right next to the bus terminal and is a top notch place to stay. The facilities are immaculate, the staff is courteous and professional, the rooms are spacious and comfortable and the restaurant/bar on the roof are magnificent. It's location right in the heart of downtown makes it ideal for trips to Knossos or the many museums in the city.

Room Tip: Request a harbor view. There's a nightclub on the city side that can be noisy late into the night.

Dear Axel M,
thank you very much for this review of your relaxing stay with us and for your kind comments about the breakfast, the friendly staff, the amazing view and the rooftop pool restaurant. Heraklion is a very touristic city and with the airport built 5km from city center, noise from that airplanes passing above is unfortunately unavoidable. This is why all our rooms feature double glazed soundproofing windows, so that all our guests can enjoy uninterrupted moments of rest and relaxation.

Best Wishes,
the GDM Megaron team

The service is what made this property stand out for my wife and I. From check in to check out the staff at all levels showed a level of friendliness and interest that really made our stay very special. Heraklion and Crete in general is very relaxed and quiet and this property is perfectly complimented by this setting. The hotel is physically very attractive and the rooms are large and comfortable. We had a beautiful room overlooking the harbor. The view was great and there wasn't much noise - maybe a little traffic but not much. We enjoyed watching the big hydrofoils from mainland Greece come in.

Bottom line, highly recommend!

Room Tip: We liked the harbor view room we had.

Beautiful hotel perfectly situated by the ferry port, the fortress, the Archaeological Museum, the main street with beautiful historic buildings, shops and restaurants and just a very short drive to the Palace of Knossos. We only stayed one night but it was great experience. They upgraded us to a beautiful room with a view of the harbor and the Castello del Molo. Just stunning! And the breakfast buffet was more like a feast so bring your appetite! The front desk staff was extremely helpful and so kind to give us the upgrade. Definitely worth stopping in Heraklion to visit the Archaeological Museum and the Palace of Knossos and this is the hotel to stay at.
