OK

Good location. Free Wifi although a bit slow. Not quite a 4 star hotel quality - no toothbrush, toothpaste, kettle in the room. Maybe the 4 star standard in Greece is different from other European countries like Holland. Staff is nice and helpful.

Great stopovers

We stayed here on two separate nights arriving and leaving Crete. Great stopover both nights and staff friendly and welcoming. Late checkout (4:00 pm) received on request. Bus stop to Knossos just outside. Would stay again.

Central hotel, nice roof

Overall I liked the hotel, though small bathroom. Breakfast was good as well as service. Roof was very nice, you can see pretty much of Iraklion from there.
