The hotel is located quite well within 1 km range from the port. It's well priced and very easily accessible. However maintenance could be improved. The easiest way to access it is through the port. Quite far away from the airport though.

The hotel was very noisy. The breakfast was not very good. The hotel is a little far from the city center. Overall, as the other hotel we stayed at in Heraklion, it is quite expensive for what you get compared to the rest of Crete. Otherwise, the staff was friendly and the room was clean.

Athinaikon Hotel is within walking distance from the port and in close proximity to the city center, making it an ideal location for people that don't want to venture outside of Herakleion city (ie businessmen). Hotel staff were friendly, the room was clean, a little bit old-fashioned and tiny. The mattress and pillow were comfortable for me. The bathroom was... More

Very conveniently located from the airport, this hotel is a decent option for a night stopover. The bathroom is quite vintage and our fridge was extremely noisy for the whole night. City center 15 mins away on foot. The staff is very welcoming and nice

I am a well seasoned budget traveler with only two hates: rooms that stunk of smoke and staff who lie. This place has both. The room stinks and when we got here hot and bothered late in the day asking where the port was we were told no point going as everything was shut and the ferry we wanted tomorrow... More

We stayed here two different nights during the same week, once to visit Knossos and Heraklion and another time coming back from Vai. Both times we found free parking right in front of the hotel. The rooms have all the basic amenities, are quiet (even if they give on the street) and inexpensive. But the great asset of this family... More
