  • We stepped into the hotel with a rather unwelcoming receptionist. However, room was clean…

  • Great hotel if you need a place central to drop you bags and enjoy Heraklion before…

      Do Not Recommend

      Have you ever seen a sketchy looking hotel in a movie and asked yourself why someone would book that place ? Well, that's El Greco hotel. Woman receptionist has a bad attitude and the man over night was just weird and also had a bad attitude. Third floor smelt like vomit and the room has seen better days to say the least. The configuration was awkward, the furniture had rusty metal bars sticking out which we've cut ourselves on, the walls had holes in the them, the curtain were filthy, the windows did not lock and were easily opened from the outside and the door to the room had no additional locking mechanism for added security. All that to say, we only stayed one night and even that was difficult. I definately do not recommend this place to anyone the only positive thing they did for us was call us a cab in the morning.

      Excellent well managed city centre hotel.

      Excellent city centre hotel. This is a slightly older hotel but immaculately clean with new bathroom. Obviously very well managed. Piazza with cafes and restaurants close to the entrance, but it was very quiet at night. I had a third floor room.

      all about location (and price)

      This hotel is centrally located in the very heart of the main tourist area of Heraklion. Though the rooms are basic so is the price.. very good value.. the rooms need updating but were still very clean and quiet with comfortable bed, good wifi and tv. You wont find private en suite rooms in the heart of the city for less money.

    • 6.0.Good

      Perfect location and super basic and cheap. Don’t expect much here. It’s an older hotel that needs renovation. Beds are decent but not the most comfortable. Great central location but expect some street and foot traffic noise. I’d stay here again if I was younger and looking for a great location with vibrant nightlife and amazing food all around.
