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

The room and the bathroom need renovation: There weren't enough lights so the room was too dark, there were many cables of electricity on the walls, the bathroom was very small and the shower was tiny with a annoying curtain both of them improperly located and when we were having a shower the water was splitting all around the bathroom....

Stayed here on two separate nights at the end of September. Met three different staff members and they were all as helpful and friendly as they were three years ago when I last stayed. The hotel is very much the same also. We stayed in rooms 310 and 308. It is worth noting that 308 has a hand held shower... More

We arrived late into Heraklion so wanted a cheap hotel for one night close to the airport. We had a bad experience arriving late into Heraklion off a ferry years ago so were a bit nervous about where to stay. The taxi ride to the hotel cost us 10 euros and we were very pleasantly surprised by the hotel and... More

Staff were knowledgeable, very friendly and helpful. We asked for a coffee and the young lady on reception took a lot of trouble to make it nice for us, she told us of a good place to eat and was very professional whilst friendly too.

The hotel is nice also if our room was not very new but with the essentials. It's good just to spend one/two nights in order to visit Heraklion and the surroundings The center of the city can be reached by foot in 15/20 min.: very convenient! Staff is very friendly and helpful.

We chose this as it said it was 500m from the port. It was more like 700m away from the port and you went past a McDonald's on route. We had asked for a double room but like most places here we got two singles beds but they weren't even pushed together. The bathroom smelt like urine and the shower... More

Before getting there , they sent us an email with information. 10 minutes walk from centre town. In summer very hot but good air conditionning. Do not take de breakfast, it's 5 euros and horrible

For some reasons we made an imminent booking at this hotel with no knowledge. As many reviewers comment, the best advantage of this hotel is location, if you need to go to the port area for a ferry or a bus ride, The room is rather basic but well-kept. The bath room is not spacious enough but considering the expense... More
