Within walking distance to the center of Heraklion. Quiet room with a view to the swimming pool. Very clean with fitness and spa area. Excellent breakfast buffet (fresh and with local specialities). Excellent service. Bed linen were lent to me when I moved into my apartment. I appreciated it very much!

Yiannis Economou and his team starring Maria on reception and Aris the restaurant manager ensured we had a wonderful, comfortable stay in Iraklion. A haven from the bustling city outside. The food was exceptional focussing on local fresh produce. Our executive room was spacious and very comfortable. The only place to stay in town!
