Room was clean. Breakfast was good. Staff was helpful. Walking distance to restaurant / water.
Bed was too, too firm.
Good clean room with interesting decor, and very helpful reception staff. Great shower!
Hot and humid on arrival as the aircon only works with the key in the slot and the window closed, but once worked out the aircon works quite quickly to make the room comfortable.
The rooms were pretty nice especially the bathroom, the staff friendly. The location is not that great, it is central but on a secondary little street.
Very clean hotel, the breakfast was very good. People are helpfull and every time available
Wifi wasn't for free... In regard to the price, it could be different...
Very clean room,staff was polite and friendly. Also breakfast was nice! The hotel is very close to the center of the town and many taverns and bars are nearby.
the soundproof wasn't so good...
Reasonable value. It has all the basic amenities : free breakfast, free wifi internet access. The room is spacious and clean.
Very good value. Bathroom small but welldesigned. Great breakfasts.
The hotel is fairly basic by US standards -- the staff, a very nice breakfast, and close proximity to night life made the stay. The manager in particular was exceptional and went out of her way to help us with a rental car issue.
We arrived at 0500 and the staff were very helpful. Standard continental breakfast in very clean surroundings. Again the staff were very helpful when leaving.
We stayed 2 nights to visit Herraklion before heading into the countryside. Kastro Hotel was excellent as a base for visiting the town. Good location, good breakfast, free wifi, comfortable and spacious room. Not luxury but fantastic value at 60 eur/night for two, including breakfast.
A three star hotel offering four star service, confort and value. Excellent in every department. Will stay there again when next in Heraklion.
Good location for the Ferry port and other transport facilities.Friendly, helpful staff.
A relatively new and clean 4 star hotel in a side street within a comfortable walk of the old harbour and city centre. Excellent sized suite and en suite - which was an unsolicited superior double upgrade. Very comfortable bed and very adequate continental breakfast. Staff very helpful with touring arrangements.
Lack of tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
helpful reception, convient location
Great location, overall reasonable for the price paid.
