Have stayed here before so knew how lovely this hotel is, we only stayed for one night before we flew home, the room was amazing, harbour views, wonderful bed so comfy, immaculately clean in all areas, we had an evening meal in the roof top restaurant, the food was so good, the staff were friendly & helpful, special mention to the young lady who served us, I didn’t get her name, but she had worked in Manchester for a few years, she was an absolute credit to the hotel, also the lady who I believe was one of the managers who took time to come & talk to all the diners, what a lovely lady. Breakfast was amazing so much choice, yet again the staff were the ones who made it special so friendly & helpful, especially the lady in charge, I think her name was Irene, will definitely return to the Megaron & stay longer next time.

VERY lovely and comfortable hotel offering immaculate stay with very friendly and welcoming staff… We in particular remember that lady of the staff serving breakfast at Plaza restaurant, literally spreading such a friendly and enjoyable athmosphere during breakfast and who bemothered us as she certainly does to her family at home… As for the room and services: Top quality !

We are very impressed with this hotel. The location is great for exploring the town and reaching Knossos Palace. Parking is available too. All the open spaces in the hotel are decorated beautifully. The staff was exceptional - polite, friendly, helpful. Our room was very nice, comfortable, and clean. The breakfast room overlooks the harbor and there is a lot of wonderful choices for breakfast. We had drinks and dinner on the rooftop restaurant. The food was well prepared, the location (overlooking the harbor) was very nice and relaxing, and the staff once again exceptional. The hotel did provide some restaurant recommendations which we did try and liked too. The town on a Saturday night was hopping which was a lot of fun too. This was one of our favorite hotel in Greece!

We stayed two nights and could have used a couple of more days just enjoying the hotel and the city. The service and hospitality was outstanding; everyone I came in contact with was genuinely friendly and took great pride in their jobs. We booked an Executive Sea View room with a balcony in which no detail was overlooked, from the super-comfortable bed and linens to the extra niceties which seem to be lacking nowadays even in upscale hotels.(turrn-down service, chocolates and welcome cookies, etc) Even the hand sanitizers were in crystal bottles and placed at various checkpoints throughout the hotel! The breakfast buffet offerings were superb, I would have loved to sample more of the Greek sweets. My only regret was that it was too windy the day I wanted to use the pool but it was a lovely view at least. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Heraklion and if you are arriving by ferry it is literally across the street; the bus to Knossos is also next door so the convenience can't be beat.

We have just spent a super comfortable 3 nights at the Megaron we used it as a place to explore Heraklion. From check in to check out everything was organised friendly and efficient . Cleanliness was second to none the highlight for me was the Plaza breakfast room overlooking the old Venetian fort . We where greeted with delight every morning by Ireeni who takes care of your every need the orange juice is freshly squeezed the pastries and cakes are old Greek recipes and delicious. Housekeeping twice a day and my last comment is everything in the hotel is of high quality. Thank you Megaron and lovely staff we shall return
