We flew in late so booked this hotel for the night due to its proximity to the airport. It was quiet and clean and the rooms had everything we needed. Staff were friendly, the included breakfast was great and the pool provided a nice cool-off before we took off the next morning. The midday checkout was also good, as was... More

We passed by the Sofia Hotel before boarding. The people and the service are simply amazing. Great energy! Sofia (the hotel manager) is a kind soul, I was so pleased to meet her. We strongly advice this hotel!

We had to be put up in this hotel from easyjet due to strike action. On arrival the reception was very good. There had been a mix up between the airport and hotel so the room we was expecting was not available as there was 2 adults and 1 child in the party. But only a room with 2 single... More

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

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
