It was a great week in a great appartment. The owners (george and maria) were very nice to us and to the others. You stay a couple of minutes from Hersonisos in the quiet and beautiful Anisaras.
This hotel is a perfect choice for those who want to relax!It is a very peaceful and beautiful place!The pool the garden and outside area is perfect!!!lovely owners ad very friendly!the location is very convenience since it is closed to the beach(500m) and near to Heraclion city (20km) if you want to escape to a big city.
George and Maria are wonderful hosts. The hotel is run in a very personable way. We were on a two week tour and had only two days on Crete so needed good access to Archeolgical Sites, Airport, and a relaxing beach. We had a great end of season rate for the hotel. There were some bugs in the shower (small fly like things.) Since it is run like a bed and breakfast, not too much late night ammenities. Difficult to find at first but close to main highway for access to Iraklio and Agios Nikolaos (great resort town!)
we like the closeness to the sites and activities,the silence and the nature. every things was satisfactory.
This hotel was one of the best I have seen! Everything was excellent! (good atmosphere, fine furnished clean room, beautiful garden with 2 pools, good service etc.) The hotel owners Maria & George were so hospitably and helpful. They always took care and spoke frankly to guests. We could very enjoy & relax here. Our stay in Crete was became more fantastic by them. We absolute recommend you to stay in Kreta Natur. If you want to stay here, it is better to rent a car, because the hotel location is a little bit far away from a main load (about 10 min by food) and furthermore you can go to all around in Crete.
Clean, quite (except for bugs), excellent location - 3 min drive to Hersonissos, 10 min drive to Creta acquarium, 15 to aquapark.
The grounds are very nice. The room was roomy. The kitchen is small but useable. The location is remote enough so that there is little noise at night. The room and bathroom were clean.
near the airport, little kitchen with basic stuff to cook, nice room, nice pool, nice little garden. the staff didin't tell us about the facilities of the surrondings (like the local bus, the nearest market), the city of Anissaras is really bad, nothing to do, ugly, really bad location, except by the fact that it is near the airport!
Maria and George, the owners, are really nice and well-educated people. They care about you and your stay. The hotel itself is in a good location, almost on top of the hill, and offers a good panoramic view. However, that also means that the beach is more than one step from the hotel. But there is a pool to compensate for that and overall, the hotel territory is nicely decorated. About 200 meters from the hotel there is a bistro, a bar, bike and two car rental services and an excursion trains pick up point. In about 10 mins walking you'll reach more bars, a couple of night clubs, a couple of souvenir shops, more bike\quad\moto rentals (hotel has a parking), a small supermarket. The nearest town is about 15-20 mins walking. WiFi is free. The nicely decorated hotel territory is in stark contrast with somewhat run-down roads and other public infrastructure nearby.
Ideal situation/location of hotel. Reception staff initially not very welcoming.
Location was good for being close to the port, but the walk up a fairly steep hill with luggage has put me off from stying here again. Lack of communication about the breakfast that was included in the room rate, we were advised we could have our breakfast in our room but was then charged full rate for doing so
Excellent breakfast Very poor quality for money. Impossible to sleep because of noise from airplanes, cars passing in the street with very loud radios on all night, noisy motorbikes and so on. Depressing furniture. Poor view. Depressing surroundings.
The hotel is centrally located, and offers free wifi in the lobby. There is no way this is a five star or even four star hotel. Our room was supposed to be non-smoking, but reeked of smoke and the bed was quite uncomfortable. The hotel was generally worn, from the lobby, which at first glance looked stylish, but upon closer inspection was run down. The helpfulness of the staff varied widely, and I did not appreciate the snickers from the woman at the front desk when I, rather than my husband, handed her a credit card to pay.
Helpful staff, good food, comfortable room, ease of access to airport
This is an excellent hotel in a very convenient location for sight-seeing. Everything is nearby and close to the waterfront. The staff is friendly and helpful. A bit pricey bu you would probably expect that for a five-star hotel.
This is not a 5 star hotel. Hwo is responsible for evaluation?? I will not recommend to pay as 5-star hotel to anyone.
The breakfast and the Hotel receptionist very helpful!!!!!! The rooms were poor and aren't to 5 star standards!!!!!
The staff were great & with a smile on their face. The Porter Con was absolutely fantastic (keep up your great service Con) & so were the reception staff. The Breakfast buffet had great selection. The motel was very clean & comfortable, close to restaurants & shops & also the port. We will stay there again. no
Old furniture, bad smell. This is not 5-star hotel for sure.
Everything. Breakfast was especially good. Staff very helpful. Nothing negative. A bit pricey but that is what you expect for a five star hotel.
Near the airport, large and very well appointed room, we booked a sea view room and thought it well worth it, superlative breakfast including an orange squeezing machine and Cretan specialites with a notice saying what they were. Central location including proximity to the Archeolgical Museum (which is shut for rebuilding and a tempory exhibition of "highlights" is underwhelming). Being presented with the visa receipt after OK-ing bill and asked to fill in the "Tip" box. I had tipped appropriately as we went and I found this a little grasping
Hotellet ar centralt belaget nara till hamnen, dar jag tidigt pa morgonen skulle ta baten vidare. Jag hade turen att ha en stor solig balkong hogt uppe utan storande trafik utanfor.
Hotellrummets utsikt var magnifik. Be att få bo på topfloor vån 6 så får man jättefin utsikt. Jag hade betalt för frukost och den american breakfast som hotellet hade var inget bra. Gott vitt bröd, men annars inget märkvärdigt. En ostsort, en skinksort. Lite frukt. Honung och chokladcream att ha på smörgåsen.
The hotel is on the beach so that was useful with the children. There was not much to do in the local area of the hotel.
Location and big rooms Their service no mini bar in hotel
Friendly hotel good facilities good buffet selection. Italian Restaurant particularly good.
food, location, accomodation Beach sport entertainment could be done by hotel and included in hotel price partly but not by a third party team. Windsurfing or water skiing training would be as plus.
Ett mycket bra hotell med bra och trevlig personal!
Trevlig personal, bra service och fina rum.
Det bästa i hela Kreta,personal från andra hotell i Kreta borde lära vad som gäller servis och bemötande av gäster.Allt var fixat på en gång. Riktig super hotell! Europeisk standard, bra mat, fantastisk frukost. Det enda är att solen vid poolen är ganska sent på föremiddag ifall man vill spendera tid vid poolen på föremiddag.
Från början till slut, under den vecka vi tillbringade på Blue-Aegean, var allt mycket bra. Bemötandet, komforten, maten och hotellets position i förhållande till strand och restauranger, affärer etc. Gouves är en liten by som är värd att upptäckas av fler skandinaver, dess lugn, vänlighet, goda mat och varierande stränder (långgrunt, klippor för snorkling) slår det mesta på Kreta. Nej.
Excellent, helpful and friendly service. Immaculate presentation Dinner was average - not up to standard set by the rest of the hotel
Good hotel nice staff perfect location to start and finisch your trip to crete, next to harbour and airport, no noise and relaxed atmosphere nice breakfast
Great service, nice room. Noisy at times as located in the proximity of the airport. Then again so is almost all of Heraklion and the windows keep out most of the noise. The step up chair provided in front of the bathtub to climb in and use as a shower is a nice touch but I prefer a separate shower without the climbing exercise.
A luxury hotel with excellent staff and fantastic food. Located near marina, port and easy walk to shops, museums etc.
The hotle is very well situated with near access to 25th of August St. and the Market. The view of the venetian castle and harbor from from the hotel is dreammy. The hotel itself is very designer modern inside while classic outside. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet was wonderful. The salads were very good at the roof top restaurant. They arranged for timely transportation to Knossos and the airport. My only bad experience was a group of very roudy Japanese tourists which may have had too much to drink and woke me up at 12:30 a.m. on my last night here. Otherwise, this was a perfect stay.
Perfect location in the heart of the city next to bus terminal . Friendly multilingual staff. Luxurious atmosphere.
The building, the hard wood floors, the breakfast, people were nice. There were very few people working ! there was no one at the front door when we arrived and we had to walk to the receprtion to tell them we needed someone for our luggage... they send a girl(a waitress) to pick them up!!! I felt bad for her. There was something uncomfortable about how the ground floor was designed , the location of the reception behind all these glass doors!
I booked an executive room which was lovely as we had a seating area in the room. We put out the sign to have our room cleaned and only the bar fridge was stocked.
location: close to shopping & nightlife + not too far from airport/port Hotel breakfast buffet was overrated. possibly noisy from airport during busy summer months
I liked the decorations and comfort of the rooms and the service by the staff. Breakfast was also excellent. Very convenient location too should you want to visit the city centre of Heraclion or if you are in a business trip. The swimming pool should open earlier and not at 11 am.. You couldn't have a swim before breakfast.. the pool could do with a renovation too - the style was too 70s..
Closeness to attractions Clerks were rude at reception,room was dusty (floors, table in balcony
Astoria Capsis is located in the heart of Heraklion near major sites and shopping opportunities. You can easily walk to a lot of archaeological sites like the former fortress docks & harbours. There are a lot places to eat and shopping close by. No fitness center for exercise. There weren't a lot of choice for their breakfast. Can be noisy. My room had a noticeable sway for no apparent reason, possibly the foundation of the building was not stable.
Very comfortable room with big balcony. Excellent common areas & the rooftop pool & bar with fantastic views of Heraklion
Large, spacious room..nice beds.. Small bathroom
Very good location. Right in the center of the town. Very close to the port for boat traveling, about 15 min drive to airport. Walk 5 mins to market, car rental agencies, travel agencies. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Good to have free wifi cover the whole hotel. The room could be cleaner.
Breakfast was excellent. Opening hours of swimming pool.
The location is with walking distance of the port, bus station, and local attractions. The staff was helpful in arranging an extra night there, and they were helpful in every way. The bed was not as soft as I need with a sore back, but the room had lots of extra pillows.
Luxury hotel, located next to the old town of Heraklion. We booked this hotel because of the swimming pool on top of the roof. But, it wasn't open! Only open in the summer season, okay, it was September, but hey, only a pool in July or August???
Everyone was helpful. Swimming pool was closed, although this was not stated on booking.
The location is near the city center and the port , easy access to transportation. The hotel is hard to find.We asked many people around there and no one seems to know the hotel , or even the Lahana street where it is located. I think the hotel should provide its map prior to the arrival of the customer. The map should be in Greek since the streets of Heraklion do not have their name written in English.
Fine but nothing special
Rooms clean and cheerful. Staff very helpful. Nothing, the room was great.
very well placed for the centre of town, and in a quiet street Hardly the hotel's fault - but we found it impossible to arrive by car. Traffic and signs were impossible.Iraklion was the worst place in Crete for finding our way.We just gave up - and went to the airport (getting once more lost on the way) returned the hire car early, and went back by taxi. This turned out to be a very wise decision.
Location, price and comfortable beds. The shower and bathroom was very small.
Super nice staff, good location, ok price. Very difficult to find. Ask local people, they all know the way.
Close to port - easy walking distance. Quiet. Clean. Basic and close to old town. Smokey lobby.
The hotel was clean and the staff friendly. It was difficult to find and a bit expensive for what I received.
Quiet in evening, Restaurants near-by and free wlan Hard to find a parking place.
Free wireless internet inside the room. Accessibility in the tourist center. It takes time to get water heated. It's a waste of water to do just that.
Vergis Epavlis has been the best place where to relax and disconnect. It’s excellent place, the great breakfasts with an amazing sight, the comfortable and luxurious rooms, the quiet moments at the swimming pool… An exquisite attention from the owners as well as the little details has done these holidays the best ones. An unforgettable experience, we hope to repeat again. Gonzalo y mónica. All good things finish someday, so we couldn’t stay more days within this little paradise.
The location, staff, facilities - everything!
Everything. Very friendly and welcoming.
Location and attitude of staff
Great experience - I will return.
Quiet accommodation in a wonderful house in the typical landscape of Crete. Large rooms/apartments with an extraordinary design and views, superb service, nice dining room, unforgettable tavern Ethimico...
we enjoyed an amazing view, the most special hospitality, and a gorgeous place to stay, big and comfortable and beutiful rooms, we never wanted to go outside... to leave...
This hotel is very special, the rooms are really good, the nature around is astonishing and the people there are so nice and friendly like in no other place we have been. This is the second time we went to this hotel and we will be back again for sure!
Great attention to detail given by staff to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of all guests. Rooms are large and spacious and tasetefully decorated. Balcony is a good size. Location is either perfect or a little bit remote depending on your point of view. For me it was a little remote but we had a hire car (essential) and it proved to be a good central base.
