    Exceptional

    This is an excellent hotel, providing very comfortable accommodations in a perfect location for arriving on the island of Crete via ferry and visiting Heraklion and the Knossos Palace. The staff were were very kind and helpful and the buffet breakfast on the roof of the hotel with a view of the old port was priceless. Many rooms also have a view of the port.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    The location of the hotel is great as it offers good restaurants, the ferry terminal and the local bus station within easy walking distance. Since we used all of these during our stay, this was very convenient. The rooftop restaurant is great at breakfast time with a view over the port and the private balcony a nice to have. Local sights and activities were also easy to reach on foot. For the purpose of our short visit to Heraklion, this hotel provided all what we needed at good value for money.

    Fabulous

    Conveniently located near restaurants and harbour. Very good breakfast and excellent view from breakfast room.

    Very hard beds

    Exceptional

    The cafe facilities for breakfast and snacks and the quality of the hotel.

    Walls maybe need more soundproofing as a neighbour's TV was very audible.

    we liked the location being near the centre of the town and the harbour, the rooftop terrace with the views and very nice meals, the staff who were very obliging

    The view over Heraklion Harbour is fantastic ! Just five minutes to walk to get our ferry... And the staff was very kind.

    Superb

    The view from the room was amazing and easy access to the rooftop lounge was also very relaxing. The location is unbeatable between Monastiraki and Plaka. The manager was lovely and came over to introduce herself to us at breakfast. She made sure we were comfortable and organised for our onward journey. The breakfast was also something to look forward to in the morning.

    It is a bit pricey but good for a special occasion.

    Staff very friendly. The view of the port and sea from the breakfast room on the top floor is amazing. I would stay in this hotel again for this reason alone.

    Exceptional

    The location of the hotel, easy access to all activities we participated in. Staff at all times wer prepared to help or organise information. The room was very comfortable and breakfasts were very good. We only dined in once and the meal was good.WIFI service was excellent

    The only aspect I found to be an issue was the lift size

    Exceptional

    Hotel was lovely to stay in, we had our own balcony/ terrace and the breakfast was great, especially with the fantastic view overlooking the harbour. Staff were helpful and let us keep our bags at reception while we went to visit the Archaeological Museum, which is just 5 mins up the road. Hotel's location was also very good for the bus station and for local shops and restaurants. We wished we could have stayed more than 1 night!

    Because they did not have our reserved room I have nothing positive to say.

    We reserved a triple room a month in advance and when we arrived they did not have our room and we had to stay in a single room. We had even called them to let them know we would be arriving a little late and they still gave our room to someone else. In other words making a reservation at this place means nothing. We were very disappointed and getting a single bed when we had a reservation for 3 was terrible. If it hadn't been so late we would have tried to find another place. They had the booking paperwork, I saw it personally, but they did not honor it.

    Superb

    Our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast is good and held in a roof-top room with views of the port. It is a very convenient location to the port if you have an early morning ferry to catch.

  • 7.0
    Very good

    The location is good, very close to the port. The Breakfast and the View of Roof Restaurant is nice.

    First of all, The receptionist at the arrival was not pleasant at all, second, WiFi didn't work even in the lobby and the speed is extremely slow, third, we booked the room which has lateral sea view, but the room they gave us is only face to the opposite building with only a limit view only to the Venetian Castle. Overall, I found that the only reason for me to choose Marin is the "location"
