Lonely Planet review
Don’t be put off by the towering hulk of this harbour-front hotel, for inside awaits a top designer abode with comfortable rooms (all with different sizes and configurations), Jacuzzis in the VIP suites, and flat-screen TVs. Unwinding in the glass-sided pool and drinking in the sweeping views from the rooftop restaurant and bar are hardly run-of-the-mill features either.
Our independent authors have visited GDM Megaron Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Iraklio.
