Heraklion Hotel- Hotel Heraklion Crete - Accommodation Heraklion Crete - Kastro Hotel
Greece welcomes you to the beautiful island of Crete and Kastro Hotel welcomes you to the beautiful city of Heraklion (or Iraklion, Iraklio or whatever you want!). Kastro Hotel Heraklion Crete welcomes you to the traditional town of Heraklion, with the old Venetian fountains (like the four Lions Venetian Fountain 100m. away of Kastro Hotel) and the old traditional style centre of the town (the “old city” as we call it, because our downtown is built in an old Venetian style within the old venetian borders). Kastro Hotel Heraklion Crete is built just next to all these sights with the advantage being next to all the essential points of Heraklion city such us: the bus public tranfer, taxi station, museum of Ancient Crete, public library “Vikelea”, green parks such us “Theotokopoulos” square, and furthermore taverns and restaurants (next to Kastro Hotel), cafe's, bars and pubs.
Grete is the biggest island of Greece with a size of 8.335 square kilometres and 500.000 citizens approximately. It consists of four prefectures: Heraklion, Chania, Lassithi (or Agios Nikoalos) and Rethymnon. Every prefecture consists of some smaller municipalities. The most interesting is that each city has something special, something unique. Heraklion has all the conveniences of a big city but at the same time you can find lots of old Venetian-style constructions as they were during the Venetian Ages (1204-1669 a.c.). Unfortunately after Venetians, Turks conquered Crete and as barbarians they destroyed lots of the Venetian projects. Near Kastro Hotel Heraklion Crete our visitors can enjoy all the traditional Venetian constructions, fountains, streets, aquaduct, and the most important: “Koule” Castle, a castle next to the sea (300m away of Kastro Hotel) that was built to protect the city by the invasions and pirates. Rethymnon has a very nice picturesque old city, near the harbor with lots of places to relax, with “Fortetsa” Castle (old Venetian Castle to protect the city, like Heraklion “Koule” Caste) just next to the old city. Chania old town is an ideal place to rest and enjoy the peaceful environment, and Lasithi (or Agios Nikolaos as we mentioned before) has a really great lake with lots of cafe's in front to relax and enjoy your meal, coffe or drink. The most important feature of all Cretan cities is that we have 1.046,4 square kilometres of sand and beaches with clear-blue-crystal waters!
