        Clean and central, not far from bus station as our purpose for being in Heraklion was to visit Knossos and the museum, Standard buffet breakfast, very pleasant and helpful staff.

        Staff were very nice and helpful answering questions and giving directions

        First of all, the location of the hotel is very strange. It located at a narrow and wet alley which it is very difficult to find the hotel. The door lock is not very well, we spent almost 5 minutes to open the door when we got the key!!! The electricity supply also have problem. All the lights will suddenly turn off (both room and breakfast area).

        The staff was very friendly and helpful

        Rooms were not even close to as nice as the pics, and bed was very uncomfortable, we woke with a poor nights sleep and hurting backs.

        Centrally located to main attractions around Heraklion

        The sink broke, but it was fixed the following morning.

        The place has a really modern feel and everything is new. This is not like typical Greece and feels more like the US, which is nice for a change. For once, the shower is seperate and actually has a shower door! The location is good and it is easy to walk from the bus station or the port. The woman during the day is very helpful as well. There is a great seafood restaurant within a couple blocks.

        Really have nothting negative to say. I wish I could have stayed longer than 1 night!

        The location of the hotel is good and it is very clean and modern.

        The staff help at front desk were not the most helpful and they had tv soap operas on in the lobby most of the time.

        The hotel has a good location in the center of heraklion and is easy to find. The kastro hotel is very modern, with very nice rooms and facilities. It is also reasonable quiet. It was a very nice stay, I would stay there again.

        Good location, helpfull staff, small but comfortable room, good shower, free wifi in the lobby.

        Our room had no balcony, we used the roof terrace on the 5th floor.

        I was stay there for 3 nights. When i first arrived, the bed sheet wasnt clearn but i am too tired to complain. I told the staff before i went out. And the sheet didnt change at all while i was staying. Finally i got bed bugs bite on my back. I showed to the staff and they want me to pay the amount first then will contact with me later. I did got one e mail from the hotel manager (G.Papageorgiou). He tried to explain the room was clearn. After i asked a compensation from the hotel. He didnt reply me anymore. I am very dispoint from this hotel.

      • Couple

        Top located in the heart of the city center, short ways to restaurants, shops (as far as they are open) and attractions. Good value for the money.

        Very bad parking situation, the room was not really clean!
