nice hotel which is not far from the main action. it does share a lot with the central bus depot and is off a busy road so it can be noisy. breakfast was a nice spread and included hot items. and rooftop had a nice view.

This is a luxury property close to the centre of Heraklion. The furnishings are very nice, though the rooms are rather dark because there is no ceiling lamp. The windows are draped with heavy curtains, though some rooms do have a balcony beyond the curtain. The windows are not double glazed and this is an issue because the hotel is...

My room was beautifully done and immaculate. The breakfast was possibly the best breakfast buffet I've experienced. The gym was small but in perfect order. The restaurant on the top floor served good food and had exceptional views. As others have said, this is a central location to transportation including the bus station and ferries.

The Megaron is a luxury hotel in every sense of the word. The included breakfast is outstanding, the staff very helpful. The public areas are fantastic. It's a short walk to the harbor and to the tourist sites. One of the better hotels we've visited during our two visits to Greece.
