Lonely Planet review
The hulking exterior does not impress, but past the front door the Capsis is a class act all the way to the rooftop pool from where you enjoy a delicious panorama of Iraklio. Rooms have been spiffed up and now sport soothing neutral tones, ultracomfy mattresses and dashing historic black-and-white photographs. Fabulous breakfast buffet.
Our independent authors have visited Capsis Astoria Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Iraklio.
