Great location ”

Our family of four really enjoyed our visit to Crete and stay at the Aquila Atlantis Hotel. As four adults, we appreciated being close to the main square and restaurants. We were able to walk everywhere. The showers at this hotel were the best! The big breakfast was included and omelets were made to order. We wound definitely stay here again.

Reliable and comfortable for short stay”

While the location is good for short stay to visit the Archeological museum or Knossos and/or if you have late or early flight into or out of Heraklion, it is not what you need for most of your holiday in Crete. The roof top pool is nice but mind the low flying aircraft! Breakfast selections are very good especially the yogurt. Staff very efficient and courteous

Perfect Location for Ferry Port”

Stayed in this hotel the night before our ferry to Santorini. Great location for the port, only a 5 minute ride by taxi. Also great location to walk down to 9ld port where there were some lovely restaurants. Lovely roof top pool and the rooms were really spacious. The staff were so helpful and although we had an early checkout they allowed for us to have breakfast before restaurant officially opened. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Very modern clean hotel in the best location just 5 minutes from bars and restaurants and under 10 to the old town centre. Great rooftop pool, never overcrowded, rooms great, staff great, lots of choice at breakfast, overall loved it. Only negative is no rooms to shower/ change in if you have a late flight but otherwise perfect

Good quality and central to Old Town”

This Hotel is in a quiet street in the Old Town of Herachlion only very short 5 mins from the 4 Lions Fountain and 10 minutes walk to the bus station. The rooms are very clean and modern. Breakfast buffet is a mainly Stanard English with some Greek regulars. Nice pool on the roof with views over the Harbour. Staff are very friendly and very willing to help and engage in conversation. Lovely place.

Reception Dpt is Very Helpful and Professional. The Hotel Generally is Very Clean, and the Rooms are big enough with Classic decoration. One thing that I noticed, is the staff in breakfast area, are little be un happy and not enough polite some times, (may be is the new way of serving the breakfast, because of covid 19). After 9.00AM they are very buzy. Thank you.

The hotel is nice but a few things could be improved. The air conditioner was very weak in room. We spoke to front desk but nothing was done. At night, wifi is very weak with no signal. Hotel Room was located on third floor but was told to come to lobby to use the wifi. Room was basic nothing great. The breakfast was the highlight of the stay.
