I have stayed in many hotels but this one has beaten them all for helpfulness and support. Service has been exceptional. Staff have a GREAT attitude and are welcoming. Service in their restaurant was of the same standard. They want you to have a wonderful stay. Our room was well appointed as well as spacious. Being located at the Port has also meant easy access to the ferries as well as down town. Would I return most definitely.

We stayed five nights at the Megaron. It is located near the harbour and within easy walking distance into the city centre. The room was well appointed with very comfortable beds and space. We were on the fourth floor with a view overlooking the harbour. The breakfasts were amazing, catering to most tastes. If you enjoy cakes, one table at breakfast is dedicated just to cakes, tarts and biscuits. The service is exceptional and we were very well treated by staff at reception, up on the fifth floor and especially by Eirini at breakfast.

We are returning for two nights before we leave Crete.

Room tip: the fourth floor, given its central location and its proximity to the airport, I found it quieter than most places in Crete.

We used the Megaron as a base for a short stay in Crete. Apart from its convenient location and fantastic deco architecture, the Megaron staff must be among the friendliest in the industry.
We often hear that "your (comfort/ happiness/ insert relevant term) is our concern". At the Megaron, this is the lived experience.
The check in and out were seamless. The rooftop restaurant was delightful; the menu interesting and the food very good. The room, clean and comfortable, and with a sizable balcony, and everywhere happy staff, greeting guests warmly, speaking to them sincerely and attending to their work professionally and enthusiastically.
Our four days were delightful!

We stayed at the GDM Megaron Hotel for 3 nights and had a wonderful stay. The staff were friendly and welcoming. When we asked for help confirming our day trip to the Samaria Gorge, they helped obtain the vouchers from the tour company and offered to provide a take-away breakfast that we could pick up on the way to our tour. They actually packed us breakfast and lunch and we were well-fueled for our excursion. We dined in the restaurant upon our return that night and had a lovely meal. When we had time to enjoy the cooked breakfast the next day, we were met with an excellent selection including cook to order omelettes. The rooftop pool is small, but refreshing and a nice way to soothe our tired muscles after our hiking excursion. The hotel is convenient to many attractions, like the Archeological Museum and shopping district. We had a short walk across the street to the port to catch a ferry. Heraklion does have a lot of air traffic, which flies overhead but I use earplugs anyway and wasn’t bothered by the noise. The hotel provides turn-down service. We received a voucher for a complimentary bottle of wine because we had booked a 3 night stay. I highly recommend this hotel!

We stayed here for the night after a break in Eastern Crete. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel itself was very comfortable - the breakfast wa amazing. A very good base for Heraklion and Knossos. We'll be back .
