We chose this hotel because its close to Heraklion airport , less than five minutes drive away as I had an early flight, would probably not be suitable for more than one night. Basic but clean hotel, quiet in spite of proximity to the airport , friendly staff. very helpful but a little noisy as the planes leave above -... More

We arrived late at Heraklion airport. Sofia hotel is 4 mins from the hotel (after collecting our car). Very friendly staff. Clean, decent and comfortable rooms. Good parking for our rental car. Little pool, we did use. Reception passed some nice stop overs on our way to our next booking. Value for money. CC accepted in the midst of the... More

As everywhere else in Greece, it's the people that made the difference. Even before we arrived, the friendly, helpful staff assisted me with car rentals and relieved my doubts about coming to Crete in a time of acute financial crisis. The rooms are comfortable and unsophisticated, breakfast (included) is the same, good to get you going but nothing special. The... More

Easyjet placed us on standby and gave us an overnight stay in this hotel which is possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in!! The bedroom smelt of urine with stains on the bed and unfortunately it just got worse from here. My partner and I had left a 5* hotel and this was the biggest anti-climax since time... More

Stayed at the Hotel Sofia last month for 4 days. Room was very clean and had a small balcony. Staff especially Sofia, (the hotel is named for her grandmother) was very helpful and enthusiastic about the service. Had 2 meals in the evening at the hotel. Chicken soflakia was great! Hotel is a short cab/bus ride from the city center... More

This is a very clean mid range hotel with very friendly, helpful and accommodating staff. We arrived early from the ferry and they allowed us early check in, which was much appreciated. I would certainly recommend this hotel. It's also very easy to navigate out of the city if you are hiring a car.

We chose this hotel (based on price, free breakfast and parking) for a two night stay. We were pleasantly surprised by the hospitality and the room quality. Yes, it is basic - but clean and comfortable. The breakfast is simple - but filling. All the staff was friendly and helpful. The wifi was a little iffy, but we could live... More
