Travellers' Choice
In the heart of Heraklion city, Olive Green Hotel stands out with a distinct character. The name consists of two nodal words for the interpretation of its philosophy and personality that lies beyond. The Olive stands as a symbol of power, eternity, tranquility and prosperity. The Olive is embedded in the entity of Crete, through its purity and wildness. On the other side, the color Green represents the ecological and contemporary character of the hotel which implements international sustainability criteria. Olive Green is an intelligent, conscious, eco-friendly hotel, a prototype for citizens and travelers of the world. With modern infrastructures it combines the cutting-edge technology with the glory of Cretan culture while it gives prominence to all these elements that create eternal values. Its Philosophy is inculcated by the logotype which is inspired from the Minoan icons. The spiral, a symbol of birth, continuity and a universal imprint surrounded by olive leaves.

Hotel's Favourite
The hotel is very well located - near restaurants, center of town, shopping, touring...we had a double room and the bath/shower was big, the sink and makeup area sufficient, and beds were comfortable. The hotel is modern and efficient. Breakfast is plentiful and well handled - lots of variety. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

The Olive Green is the best! Everything exactly as advertised, this eco-friendly hotel is the place to stay if you want to be in the heart of Heraklion, close to the best shops, bars, cafes and restaurants . The staff are perfectly professional and accommodating in every way, the breakfast buffet offering something to please every taste, the spaces bright, attractive and clean, the atmosphere calm. The room we were upgraded to boasted a balcony and every amenity you could want or need, keeping its eco-friendly promise. Our only suggestion for improvement would be to make the shower stall a bit more "water-tight". While enjoying the lovely rain shower, we noticed that water was escaping under the door and wetting the wooden floor, which we had to mop up each time. Apart from that, we love this hotel and would definitely stay there again!
