My 16 year old son and I traveled to Crete for 4 nights and used this as our base. Hotel is clean and peaceful feeling. High ceilings, good bathroom and fabulously comfortable beds to get over our jet lag. Good breakfast. The warmth and friendliness that oozed from every staff member will not be forgotten. Superb serious and willingness to...

A nice hotel close to the centre of town and also convenient for the harbour, Venetian fortress and bus station with connections to the archaeological site of Knossos. Very friendly and helpful staff throughout the hotel, a nice cafe and breakfast area, the rooftop restaurant was closed probably due to it being March and the proper tourist season not started...

Although we only stayed at the hotel for one night, the experience was excellent. We were upgraded to a junior suite, which was spacious and had a very large bed which was extremely comfortable.

I was in town for business and this was a fine place to stay. Nice rooms, nice bar and restaurant, good service. An old building but extensively modernised. I don't think I'd stay here on a leisure trip for more than a couple of nights. This was a decent, modern, city-centre business hotel.
