The hotel has a very modern chic decor, with spiral stairs in the lobby and also a business vibe without being too cold. The room itself was great, with a tv...

Old Heraklion is ringed by its Venetian walls and the Megaron more or less sits on one of these, overlooking the old Venetian harbour and arsenal. From the hotel, it is only a few minutes walk to the pedestrian area, the restaurants and the excellent archaeological museum - so a superb location. The Megaron is a long established hotel but...
