I arrived in torrential rains, totally soaked through. The staff were welcoming and room cosy. What made it exceptional though, was that after a long day travelling and putting up with the weather conditions, my enquiry about food was met with some croissants, a cheese toastie and coffee - that the owner made himself, not from the cafe. The staff...

The biggest advantage here was the proximity of the property to the sea as well as the town center. This seems to be an old building and the rooms are just average as far as size and comfort are concerned. The bathroom was very small. The biggest problem was the lift which could accommodate hardly three persons or one person...

The Kronos Hotel is worth a visit if you are coming to Knossos. Clean, centrally located, and with a friendly staff, the Kronos is good value for families on a budget. Highly recommended. The one drawback is the breakfast which is not inspired!

Stayed here for just one night to catch the ferry to Santorini. It served that purpose. Otherwise not a fan of this hotel. Rooms are very small. It's also definitely NOT for people who are traveling together and are not super tight--you can hear EVERYTHING a person might be doing in the bathroom (and it's also kind of see-thru). Rooms...

Located very close to the pedestrian streets of the old city, this hotel is a perfect place to stay to explore Heraklion. Spacy and very clean rooms, and very friendly staff. The hotel offers only breakfast, and a very limited bar service. But for the price, it's a good deal for a night or two.

This hotel is a good choice if you want to stay near the historical centre of the city or if you want to catch an early morning ferry to Santorini or some other location. That is about it. We were a group of seven and had booked three double rooms and a single. When we checked in, the lady at...
