Taking advantage of the Passover holiday, we looked for a "city break". First trip to Crete (and Grece), looking for an affordable hotel conveniently located in the center (but with parking attached), within walking distance to restaurants and attractions. Beaches were not in our agenda, we have enough of them here in Israel. Hotel Lato came highly recommended in TripAdvisor... More

I notice most people refer to the hotel position right on the port and, in my opinion this is true. The rooms are clean if jaded, but this hotel is way overpriced. It's noisy, being at the port, Heraklion traffic is endless. The breakfast looks an amazing spread and tastes of nothing. The hot food was cold. Disappointing.

We stayed at the Lato our first two nights in Greece. We were fortunate enough to be upgraded to a junior suite on the 5th floor in the main building - a nice room with a sitting room and balcony that overlooked the harbor. The room was quiet, clean, comfortable and included a mini-fridge and a "treat" plate of nuts,... More

The location and cleanliness of the hotel, accompanied by the friendliness of the staff, make this my first choice of hotels in Heraklion! Within walking distance of the museum, wonderful dining and other interesting landmarks...cannot say enough good things about my experience!

I am a regular visitor to Greece and spend several months each year in Chania, Crete. When I decided to explore the eastern side of the island, I wanted a base in Heraklion for a few days. The Lato was a perfect choice. It has a great location, making it easy to get to many of the city's interesting neighbourhoods... More

We had the good fortune to stay at the Lato Boutique hotel having made reservations for when we landed in Heraklion. We enjoyed it so much we reserved it again for our return. On our last day driving through the countryside we decided to go back to Heraklion one day early. We arrived at the hotel with no reservations and... More

Staff was very helpful with recommendations etc. We lucked out with rock star parking which made check-in a breeze. We loved our room with a balcony and view of the fort on the second floor of the main building. We walked all over the city from here and our car stayed parked until after check-out. They held our bags upon... More

Travelling with some friends - spent 4 days in Heraklion to explore the ancient sites, the wonderful countryside and catch up with some old friends. We wanted a centrally located hotel without the noise. The LATO is located just off the main square and 5 mins form the Arch. Museum. It has a warm friendly atmosphere. The staff couldn't do... More

Very clean room, very nice bathroom with all the amenities. Nice breakfast, with a great variety and very good fresh-cooked food. Friendly personnel.My room had a nice view of the... More

Lato Boutique Hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the city center and the pedistrian walking streets of Herklion. The street from the hotel to the city center look a little dodgy but we were assured they were safe. As two females, we did not feel threatened walking to and from the hotel. The room was very modern but... More
