Wow! We only had one night here, but Olive Green had the most comfortable beds out of all our hotels in Greece. The staff is very responsive and helpful. The hotel vibe is very modern and tech integrated. There's funky lighting and lots of white spaces. There are olive trees throughout the lobby space. The rooms are bright and cool, with some vibrant color accents and cool Cretan photos on the walls. When you're brought to your room, you're given a mini tour of how all the different tech things work. It was a little initmidating but not actually that hard to use. Plus they have this free program where there's a smart phone in each room that you can take with you, to use it's data and location/map services while exploring the town. Super helpful. AND they have a bottle of Raki (shots for everyone) and some bread, olive oil, and salt complimentary to greet us in our room. Very nice.

We'd chosen the hotel based on location and reviews, and it was a great choice. It's an easy and charming walk throughout lots of Heraklion. Plus, the beds were sooooo comfortable. Very squishy but still supportive. And the included breakfast is very generous. There is a HUGE variety of Greek, Cretan, and European items. So many cheeses. And so many different fruits and jams and yogurt and granola. And hot cooked breakfast meats and eggs. Several juices and coffee, and lots of pastries and sweets. It was delicious.

Nice location (center of the city and nearby harbor- takes about 10 minutes on foot) , bright awesome room with nice view, kind staffs, modern facilities.. Strongly recommend here!! :)

한국인 후기남깁니다. 매우매우 추천합니다! 저희는 야간페리타고 아침7시에 도착했구요. 체크인은 최소 12시에 된다고 해서 짐맡기고(엄청 친절하게 맡아주시고, 방으로 짐도 옮겨놓아 주셨어요), 근처에서 아침먹고 관광시작했습니다! 호텔 시설은 최첨단이고 방도 넓고 빛도 예쁘게 들어와요. 웹 검색용으로 인터넷되는 핸드폰도 줍니다... 유심 따로 안하셨으면 크레타 여행 때 큰 도움 되실거에요. 청결은 두말할 것 없고 모든 스태프가 다 친절합니다~! 무조건 강추합니다^^

What a wonderful hotel, there aren't enough superlatives to describe the exceptional staff here! As we left, we said the best thing about this hotel is the staff...indeed from the first contact with them to even after we had departed....we have never experienced such helpfulness and kindness. The second best thing about the Olive Green is its location....walking distance to the museum, hop on hop off bus, the port and its many sites, and all the restaurants you could ask for, and yet still manages to be quiet for a good sleep. The third best thing is the breakfast, fresh, tasty, and a variance of dishes, loved the mushrooms and fried eggs in particular. Now to our spacious modern room with comfortable bed and great shower....the only fault I could find was the location of the wash basin meant you couldn't use this facility without disturbing your sleeping partner....the available space in the shower area could be better utilised for this purpose. However, if you and your partner arise together and go to bed @ the same time....you won't even notice! Would it put me off staying here?...absolutely not....THE hotel to stay in beautiful Heraklion!

The hotel was absolutely excellent. As outstanding feature was that the staff were friendly and helpful well beyond normal expectations. The hotel is modern, clean and well positioned for a visit to the city. Harbour and main museums all within easy walking distance. Slightly daunting approach by car with parking in main city car park.

Room tip: Corner site good.

Super hotel! Great location - close to all amenities & especially the archeological museum & the bus to Knossos . Lovely modern clean & interesting (that is - not bland) room with a balcony overlooking a busy square (where sparrows flicked at night) . Fabulous breakfast and all the staff were so helpful & friendly especially the hostess in the breakfast room . Would highly recommend for a city break especially as it has eco credentials too .
