We have stayed at this hotel more than once. Managed mainly by members of the same Cretan family. I apologize if some of you, will find my words and description nicer, than it could be,if it wasn't for my truly friendly feelings towards the members of this family. They have redecorated again the hotel since our last stay there in... More

Very shabby place. We stayed there when our plabe to Warsaw was 12 hours deleyed. The place is noisy, furniture is old, food is horrible. Of course is was better than waiting the whole night at the airport. Otherwise I would never go there again.

A good hotel comparing to others in the same category (two stars). It is close to the city of Heraklion, recently renovated, clean, good service and the price was great. It is close to the ammoudara beach (not the best beach you can find in Crete because it is very close to the city). There is a big supermarket right... More

Our stay in this hotel was more than satisfactory. The Hotel, recently renovated, is situated only 10 minutes away from the City of Heraclion, near the beautiful beach of Ammoudara. The room was very comfortable and clean. They were all very polite and willing to help us.

We ended up at this hotel after we got a huge downer from The Sun just up the street. Thats another review already submitted. Vanisko Hotel was our last ditch before sleeping in the car. We look back and think we should have saved the 50 bucks and slept in the car. The guy working the counter (130am) on Sept... More

Thomas Cook put 120 people up in this hotel after our flight to Dublin was cancelled and delayed by 16 hours. The rep Amanda promised everyone that we would be put up in a 5 star hotel where the pilot was staying and with an all inclusive guarantee. What a joke. On three occasions we were told after waiting nearly... More

As with other guests, Thomas Cook put us up in this hotel due to our flight being delayed more than 8 hours. We waited over an hour queuing to check in, as there were 300 guests who all arrived together. The room felt as though it had not been cleaned for a long time; stale water in the wc pan;... More

As with the previous review, myself, my partner and his family including a 6 month old baby and 2 pensioners were put up in this hotel due to our flight being cancelled. I honestly have never ever experienced anything as awful as the Hotel Vanisko. The staff were rude when we requested a cleaner to mop up our overflowing drain... More
