Our stay at Megaron was fleeting - our last night on Crete before catching a ferry the next day. We selected this hotel mainly for its proximity to the port and old Venetian harbour. We were pleasantly surprised upon arrival to see a bus direct to Knossos out the front - it leaves every 15-20 minutes. The very warm and friendly Effie checked us in and also gave us a free upgrade to a bigger room with a larger balcony which was a nice touch. The hotel looks as though it’s located in quite an industrial area, but just beyond this, is fabulous walking access to the Heraklion old town with its shops, eateries and lovely old buildings. The rooms are a little dated (it is an older building) but very clean and all the usual amenities are provided. Breakfast offered a terrific selection of Cretan food as well as all the other typical buffet fare - the staff on breakfast duty were friendly, courteous and accommodating of all requests. After checkout, we were able to leave our luggage at the hotel and when we returned to collect it, they offered us use of a room to get changed - we didn’t, but a lovely gesture. Our only criticism- and this is not the hotels fault, nor could they have done anything about it, was the noise coming out of the nightclub to the hotels rear. The loud music went until after 5am which interrupted our sleep and the loud vomiting of a nightclub patron was also quite horrid to listen to. Again, no fault of the hotel but if you’re a light sleeper maybe request a room with harbour views to avoid this situation.
Excellent breakfast! Great view on the roof!
Old furniture! No decent view if you book the room with city view!
The professionalism of the staff
Besides the good quality, we must point out the great kindness of the staff persons. Superb!.
Wonderful staff; stylish, tasteful decor and fittings; interesting internal architecture; lovely pool area; long breakfast hours and perfeclly cooked fried eggs, amazing value
Nothing. Of all the hotels i've stayed in during the last 70 years this is the one i'd like to return to more than any other (the lady who screamed down her mobile phone at breakfast and then put it on loudspeaker. We moved away)
