10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a fantastic stay on Crete. The hotel is small but very cozy. It has a direct access to the beach, which was convenient for us with the baby. The staff is amazing and very helpful and the food was prepared delicious
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Great price for the offer of all inclusive.
Cons: That everything felt a little bit more underrated as the stars given to this hotel. Despite a sign signalling that no sun beds are to be reserved ... nearly all were ahead of breakfast (despite only a couple of people using them). I think it's important to have hotel house rules but they should not just be window-dressing. Every guest ought to have a right to use all of the facilities. Reserving seats or sun beds is absolutely ridiculous and staff should (as the so-called rules by the poolside state) should remove the pegs that hold towels there. Or better still, remind guests on their arrival that reserving sun loungers/beds is against house rules. Certain cultures whether it be German or British have no right to impose such archaic traditions on any other holidaymakers.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It's my first ever trip to exact same summer destination twice in a row. As before, it fully met my expectation. The place is close to airport & the city, yet the beach is long and relaxing enough if you walk a few minutes any direction. The hotel's most valuable asset are the people working there. The staff at the restaurant - those you meet most often - are always friendly, quick and always ready to help. The bar team also deserves a 5*. The family rooms we stayed in were clean and comfy. Everything required was there. Cleaning raised no issues. Liked the food - didn't miss any particular kind if food. Was never hungry :) Exept for rare peak days, there were always sunbeds at the beach, though it's hard to fined >1 spare sunbed by the pool past 10am. There's small private car park for your car. Staff speak English, German and some speak French as well. A special thank you voes to the manager - Nikoletta - who's been very helpful in making some non-trivial arrangements for my family members.
Cons: Sometimes I missed the pool after 6:30 when it gets closed.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Delicious, amazing food, great variety! Very friendly and professional staff, very clean property, had a great time!

Pros: Great service, nice room.
Cons: Noisy at times as located in the proximity of the airport. Then again so is almost all of Heraklion and the windows keep out most of the noise. The step up chair provided in front of the bathtub to climb in and use as a shower is a nice touch but I prefer a separate shower without the climbing exercise.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is a quality hotel with terrific facilities from the public spaces to the bedrooms. The building itself is beautiful as is the location. The staff are very friendly and efficient. We drank at the fifth floor bar one evening where there is an amazing view and are most impressed with the breakfast on the first floor. The bacon and sausages are wonderful and I don’t normally go for sausages. The array of cakes is extraordinary too, such a treat. There are plenty of healthy options and the orange juicer is a nice touch. The bedroom we had was spacious with a beautifully comfortable mattress and the toiletries provided of high quality. This was our second visit to the Megaron, we will stay here again.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: 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.

Pros: Besides the good quality, we must point out the great kindness of the staff persons. Superb!.

Pros: Excellent breakfast, friendly, helpful staff, comfortable room, wifi worked well, location near waterfront and city center are good; you can walk everywhere. Had a good dinner at the hotel restaurant.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: Very central
Cons: Pool area closed because it was out of season. It was 25 degrees during our stay so we would have enjoyed it had it been open
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, the bus stop to Knossos just in the front of the hotel, and the archaeology museum is just next to the hotel. The buffet breakfast is abundant and delicious.
Cons: The facility is a little old.
6.3 Good
Pros: The location is very good. Someone of the staff is pretty kind, including the lovely maids. The swimming pool at the rooftop is decent, though the size is not like what you can imagine from the pictures.
Cons: Not a 4 star hotel, if you remove the small swimming pool from the rooftop, the hotel could easily be rate a 3 star hotel with some plus.. The worst part are the rooms, which even though "economy", (70 euro per night for a single in June) should guarantee a minimum of confort. But those rooms have almost no windows (the only small one it had you couldn't open it because it was hitting the TV!) and by the way what they call the bright inner courtyard has nothing shining bright! Other things I hated is something in the bathtub that stopped the water from creating a lake in the bathroom while taking a shower!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly staff and a good location in town for our visit to Heraklion.

Pros: Excellent location when visiting Heraklion. Across the street from the Minoan Archeology museum, and bus #2 to Knossos Palace stops in front of the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet extensive. I liked the easy access to the pedestrian walking areas from the back entrance of the hotel. Good views across the city from the rooms. Location is a 15 minute walk from the ferry port and bus station.
9.4 Excellent
Pros: The location is with walking distance of the port, bus station, and local attractions. The staff was helpful in arranging an extra night there, and they were helpful in every way.
Cons: The bed was not as soft as I need with a sore back, but the room had lots of extra pillows.
7.1 Good
Pros: Astoria Capsis is located in the heart of Heraklion near major sites and shopping opportunities. You can easily walk to a lot of archaeological sites like the former fortress docks & harbours. There are a lot places to eat and shopping close by.
Cons: No fitness center for exercise. There weren't a lot of choice for their breakfast. Can be noisy. My room had a noticeable sway for no apparent reason, possibly the foundation of the building was not stable.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Room size, breakfast, overall service
Cons: There was no bed quilts and we felt cold during the night
