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.

For our last night in Crete we decided to stay in the Megaron Hotel, as it was quite near the airport, and our flight left early in the morning. The hotel was not easy to find, and when we did find it we discovered it was on a one way street which meant we had to drive around the block...

My husband and I just spent 7 nights in this hotel, and had a wonderful time.

The breakfast buffet was bountiful, with both hot and cold foods. The restaurant menu...

This hotel was very central to the sights of Heraklion. Right next to the port/sea. Breakfast was delicious, well looked after by staff. All modern amenities, very clean and glamorous. A+. We were there as a couple, our room had beautiful sea views. The roof top pool was great to relax at.
