Central, comfortable hotel at reasonable price

Posted Jul 15, 2017
Stayed 2 nights at Kastro Hotel at the start of our Crete holiday. Central location with everything at close reach. Room is very comfortable and clean. The breakfast is amazingly rich for Mediterranean standards. Staff super hospitable. Nothing to complain about.

Great hotel, close to the bus station

The staff were lovely, the room was very comfortable and clean, the breakfast included in the room rate was great - I have Celiac Disease and I found somethings to eat! The hotel is located near the coast, and close to the bus station - where you can catch buses to all the destinations on Crete! I would for sure go back.

Satisfactory, quite central.

Posted May 15, 2017
Pros: Good central location near to various facilities
Cons: TV stations only in Greek. Sky or anything in English would be helpful.
Location: Middle of town location, yet near enough to the coast. Shopping and bars and restaurants nearby.
Rooms very comfortable. Good breakfast, friendly staff

Not the best view from a window (at least from the room we have gotten), but overall it was very nice hotel with very helpful staff. I have liked it a lot and will stay there again if ever in the town (of course, if the price will be still good).

Our Cretan adventure

Posted Apr 6, 2017 on Hotels
We stayed at Kastro for 9 days. It is really well located in Heraklion being walking distance to the museums, Venetian fort, cafes and restaurants and nightlife. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were very clean and modern. I suggest to visitors that you ask the staff where the authentic restaurants are as they are often hidden away and not easy to find. There are hundreds catering to tourists tastes but not so authentic

Excellent option

Kastro is a business hotel very close to Heraklion city centre. Very good value for money, very helpful staff. Decent breakfast options.

Great hotel with an excellent price and location

Posted Jan 4, 2017
We spent only one night here but were very pleased with the service, cleanliness and location. Upon our arrival, we were greeted immediately and when we asked for a recommendation for dinner, were directed to an excellent and delicious restaurant 1 block away. The beds were a bit firm for me, but the room was clean and the balcony had an ocean view. The hotel is in very easy walking distance of the harbor as well as the market area with many shops and restaurants. The included breakfast was tasty and better than most continental breakfasts. There isn't any street parking or place to pull in for loading/unloading but this is pretty common in Crete, and it wasn't a problem for us as we didn't have a rental car. It was about a 15 euro taxi ride from the airport.
