Nice business type hotel for an early flight to the airport. About 7 minutes by taxi. Breakfast is super early and fast checkout. Rooms are fine; a bit of sound carries from the corridor but not too bad. Pool is nice. Easy to get to old town on the bus.

Just arrived back from Crete, where we spent initially two nights on our arrival and one on our departure at the Sofia. We've stayed at the Sofia on previous trips to Crete and as before, our stay was perfect in every way, but a special thanks to Christina who works at the pool-side taverna (great Souvlaki) and also to Sofia...

Very well located, near Heraklio airport. 10 min with a taxi (6 eur). Rooms are simple but comfortable and reasonnable price. Bar, pool bar, nice terrace. Aircrafts noise when outside, not in rooms (soundproof).

We used this as a stopover hotel from the airport. We found it a bit hard to find and were a bit worried it may not be what we used to. However when we got inside we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were clean and the restaurant was lovely for an evening meal. The breakfast was very well presented. For... More

Sofia is close the airport (1km) and a very easy drive from there. The room was basic but okay. The staff were very friendly, breakfast was not great as there was not a great selection but we did get there towards the end of the breakfast time.

We stayed one night at the Sophia Hotel at the end of our two week holiday before departing Heraklion for the trip home. We were assigned a room at check-in, but upon entry we discovered it was not yet cleaned from the previous guests. The front desk apologized and assigned us another room. Upon entry to that room, there were... More

The rooms are simple, comfortable, have free WIFI and all the international channels. To go to the hotel: -there is a... More

We arrived with 5 people for 8 nights on the 13th of July and found out, that our booking company made a mistake and we didn't have any reservations for the three rooms. In this situation we met the owner "The angel Sofia". She was so empathic, warm, helpful and spend at least 3 hours to help us: To feel... More

We chose the Sofia hotel because of previous reviews and we were certainly not disappointed! You could not do better when landing at Heraklion airport at night: it was so easy to find, it has its own car park but also plenty of on-street parking right in front, the rooms are spacious and have very good bathrooms, and the air-conditioning...

The Sofia is only 4 kilometres from Heraklion airport, and only a few hundred metres from the car hire drop offs, so it's perfect if you are flying in late or have an early flight. The standard is very good...like a top class Premier Inn but with basic taverna style meals. Food and drinks are served either in the hotel... More
